Straight Talk Straight Talk phones are junk and a rip-off Internet Indiana

My son, and I have bought several Straight talk phones that I still have but do not work. I believe that Wal-mart buys the rejects or seconds because these phones are complete junk. I bought a Blackberry for $199 and now it sits here doing nothing because it won't work, so then I bought another Samsung phone for around $100 and it sits next to the Blackberry on the fireplace not worause the planb was cheap. king either. You would have thought I would have learned better by now, but no-I did it again because the plan was cheap.

This last time I bought a Sansung Predesent in a city about 45-50 miles away from where I live and the carrier on it was Sprint and I did not realize that my area uses Verizon on SAtraight Talk phones. I tried to take it back to the Wal-Mart in my town and in the city I bought it but it was past the 14 day period for taking it back. I paid $179 for this android that I am unabvle to use as a phone. I do use it sometimes for the downloaded Gospel Library I have on it but can't update the Ensigns and conferences unless I buy a $45 card, so basically it gets to sit next to the other two. 

My son dropped and broke his where his was also a $179. We both have now cheap $30 Tracfones that have been dropped several times in over a year's time with no problems. Only problem is the Tracfone cost me $80 to fill min utes last month so i am looking for a better phone with a decent no contract plan that does not have Sprint as the carrier which seems to be a challenge in itself in my rural area. However there is hope, just 15 miles away is a town that has Sprint coverage and I may acquire a house there. Good luck with ius straightening out Straight Talk but I am done with them after reading all the problems and their scams of decent, hard-working people. Shame on them!
