Rant Don't bother stealing straight talk phones from the W.

Say SWIM jaked a 99 dollar Straight Talk cell phone. Well Swim was happy with his new sleek phone until he tried to activate it. Then was told that it could not be registered/activated because it had not been properly scanned at a walmart store. Swim proceeded to argue his case stating that his "wife" had already threw the receipt away and asked if there was anything that could be done. Their response was for me to send a copy of the receipt (fuking idiots I just said 9 times I didn't have it) a copy of the barcode and I think the serial number (smoked since then, but think that it was the serial #), but anyway it was a bad idea. Fun, but non the less pointless. Also I did a search on the forums for this topic and didn't find anything, but if there are other threads on this sorry.

EDIT: Also had an friend who got the $328.00 one that I talked to after I got mine about it and he had the same problem.

Cool Re: Don't bother stealing straight talk phones from the W.

It has to be activated at the register. They scan the phones ID and that goes into a databank. The phone carrier they checks against this data base to make sure the phone was purchased. This is the 21st century - get a clue.!.

You need to ask this question in the Technophiles and Technoophiliacs thread. They might be able to help you hack into the phone. Other then that you have a useless piece of shit phone.

Yeah, just sell the phone and scam somebody with it. It's probably just as good as a brick to you, right now.

I'd see if you could hack it and get into the data entry portion of unrestricted/emergency numbers. Personally, I'd jack another one and just bounce between those numbers so the pigs don't go around looking for your ass.

Ive bought a phone from walmart and they forgot to scan it the activation barcode twice before. Once I called customer service and they activated it for me, the other time I brought it into a different store that sold the same service and they activated it for me.

Damn, that's cheap. Thanks for sharing, I need to pick up some new burners. The Big Lots around here stopped carrying the $5 Tracfones.

That I will look into. Thank you.

Rite Aid had netbooks on sale for $88.00(normally $119.99). They have Android 2.2 OS. That system runs on WIFI, many things. Not the fastest, but dirt cheap for something that gets the job done*

I checked the store located & there is a Dollar General in my town but it is half an hour away. I'll have to see if the closer dollar stores carry cheap burners.

Not sure, but at one store the tag read $14.99 and the cashier rung it up the price was $7.49.

7-11 had some for $9.99.
