I thought that no contract meant that you are not subject to staying with this carrier when you find a cheaper carrier. I found out that one year of active use is required before  you can change carriers. (it is in their terms and conditions)  They lock your phone with no way to unlock without using the whole year.  Seems like a contract to me. 

The minmum plan they have is $35 + tax. I hardly use my phone and this is expensive for me. I should have done my due dilgence and read the terms and conditions closer. I have a phone I can not use unless I pay for an expensive plan. (my opinion)  Still I think no contract should mean no contract.

#2 REBUTTAL Individual responds

talked with agent

AUTHOR: jerry - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, August 17, 2020

i talked with the agent prior to making this complaint. they said it was impossible to unlock my phone unless i completed the contract with them of one year of continuous service. thought it was a no contract plan. that is where the plan is unclear. thought i could change service because of no contract. the rebuttal made by straight talk agent was useless to me unless i can get my phone unlocked (told it was impossible without completing contract).  phone is still useless. thanks for nothing.
