I purchased an international card (plan) from Straight Talk. One month I could call France, the next month I couldn't. I called to inquire why. I was told the number wasn't in the coverage area. When I explained that I could call the number the previous month, it was repeated, "The number isn't in the coverage area." I inquired if the coverage area changes month to month to the point where one never knows if they can use the plan to call a particular number at any given time. I was advised that it didn't change. I asked the representative to follow my logic.....

If the coverage area doesn't change (deleting some areas at random times), how was it possible that I could call the number the month prior, but not able to make the call this month. He couldn't follow the logic. All he could follow was his "script"...."The number is not in the coverage area". Then, I went to the internet to verify if the number was in the coverage area or not. [continued below]....

..... On their own site, the number I tried to call was indicated as IN the covered area. Since it obviously didn't get me anywhere to talk to the idiots at the company, I sent an email complaint. I received an automated confirmation email: THIS IS AN AUTO-ACKNOWLEDGEMENT - PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL. Thank you for contacting our Customer Care Department.

Sincerely, Straight Talk Wireless No name. No contact information. Only referring me back to the idiots I was complaining about! What a joke. Well, it would be a joke had I not wasted $60 on a plan that can't be used, except at the discretion of the company owners. Something Definitely Needs to Be Done About such Sham Companies! Come on America! What the hell???
