    Why is Straight Talk saying ive used up all my high speed internet when I put airtime on it yesterday?

    Favourite answer:

    If the plan you have offers high speed data for 30 days and you use it up before that 30 day period, you then wait until your 30 reset, for more high speed data, whether you have paid for more or not.

    Get your paperwork out and re-read it. Or better yet, call customer service and have them explain the high speed details of the plan you have.

    Are there real unlimited plan?

    For a long time now my phone plan which is linked to my parents (family plan) somehow mine got so grandfathered in, where I had legit legit unlimited data. Talk and text, Internet, and hotspot. I used as much as I want. I used 14,400 gb last month. Imagine how much that would be on a normal unlimited plan. Verizon screwed my mom by lying to her about how they could save her money and it took away my freedom plan. My mom has been fighting them today trying to get the old plan back but they act like they can’t. My mom is wanting to sue them. I’m now in search of new company and was wonder if there’s another plan like mine out there?

    Can i use my sim on another phone?

    I have this phone that is under my parents (they are also paying the phone bill) and i was wondering if i could use this sim card on another phone.

    Ex. This iPhone 7 is what they got me (may or may not be fully paid off) 

    If i buy an iPhone 11 (unlocked) off of amazon, will i be able to remove the sim card and insert it in the new iPhone 11? or will the sim card be locked to just this specific iPhone 7?

    thanks a bunch in advance (i also apologize if this is a dumb question)

    Are Walmart employees required to have a smartphone?

    Every time I ask where something is in Walmart, the employee pulls out a smartphone and looks up to see if they have it.

    Are Walmart employees, particularly stockers, required to have a smartphone or are they issued one?

    If this is the case, I don't have a smartphone so I don't think I could work there. :D

    Why my new phone automatically calls emergency number?

    Favourite answer:

    It said that GSM phones have inbuilt recognition of emergency numbers  That is why even in the stage of power on the phone in times of normal and accidentally when the power button is pressed twice it automatically takes the call to distress or emergency number.
