After being with this sad excuse for a company and finally accumulating enough reward POINTS to use for free service refills, they have for the 2nd time now STOLEN my POINTS!!! 10,000 points they never added the first time and tried to say it was not a new line, and did not qualify BUT it indeed was a brand new line we added to the account! Here I am today nearly 4000 points they took for my monthly service refill and my phone is NOT ACTIVE.

Customer Service is a JOKE, definitely outsourced, they STALL you and try to WAIT you out, trying to convince me it is my NEW phone that came from THEM agent keeps requesting to take my phone apart telling and remove the SIM card over and over! Just wearing me down to get me to end the chat or call. They refuse to add the points back to my account, they refuse to let me speak with any supervisors or managers.

They simply close the chats online and always hang up when I call. EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! The last straw is when Straight Talk chat agent insisted I must give them my phone number to call if I wanted to speak with a supervisor! HAAAAAA ! Turn it ON I said! And calllll meeeee! I was able to add a plan by BUYING it!!! Plain and simple it was NOT my phone that was the issue... Sadly this company is full of THEIVES and we will be switching. Here is the chat I copied... ugh
