You can take it to the police to find out if it was stolen. if not take it to the nearest store that provides straight talk and see what they can do.

What should I do? I bought the wrong straight talk card I need help.

Speak to straight talk, not us.
If it has not been activated, most places will give a replacement.

My straight talk phone was stolen. I contacted the company but got no where. Can anyone lend some advice?

You would probably have to buy another straight talk phone. Straight talk offers no contract which means no insurance which means company does not have to help you.

I bought a straight talk nokia 6790s off from ebay but could never use it. when I called straight talk they told Me this phone was never activated when purchased and they refuse to activate it for me. I...

Hello Bilcur, the phone must have been stolen. i got one from e-bay and had no problem with it. and i sold one on e-bay and they had no problem with it. so if it was never activated when purchased that would be the only reason why ST would not activate it.
