~STSUX: Tried to get a phone on BYOP. after * attempts, on hold and hung up *x. I give up.*Now my old ST phone isn't active. No refund of the sim card and $** card that came with the sim card for the new phone. And they did not understand my concern over the fact: My old phone was still active*service end date of **********. They said the new phone service end date was the same **********, so the new serv ice card was only good for ** days. Did not understand I have paid twice for June. Put a fork in me I am done with Straight Talk service. Why Wal-Mart has attached their name to this brand is beyond me. They must own it or a fair share. IT IS THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER. And the ROBOT training and script is a joke. Well for mindless robots its holy.
