What to Do When You Can’t Pay Your Straight Talk Bill

Customers purchase the phone and pay for monthly service as desired. There are no credit checks and service can be started and stopped as needed. Talk, text, data and unlimited plans are available. Straight Talk does not bill the consumer for cell service unless the plan is placed on the auto refill plan.

How to Pay the Bill

Straight Talk phone plans are payable in various ways. Payment methods may vary based on the service location and type of plan associated with the phone.

Pay online: With any Straight Talk plan you can pay your Straight Talk bill online at Consumers simply log in to their online account and pay for the next month’s service. You can pay for service in advance and place the following month on reserve. When your current month expires, the reserved money is used to pay for the following month.

Pay with a Straight Talk card: Straight Talk cards are available at most Walmart Store locations. The cards have a PIN number on the back. From the Straight Talk website, enter your phone number and the PIN from the back of the card. The credit will be processed and added to your account.

Pay with a special service plan: Special unlimited service plans are available from Straight Talk. Special services plans bill for 3, 6 or 12 months in advance. Customers choosing the 12-month unlimited plan save about $40 a year.

Pay with auto-refill: Associate your Straight Talk phone with a funding method and each month your service will be renewed. If funds are not available for the renewal price, your bank may charge an overdraft fee and your Straight Talk service may be discontinued.

I Can’t Make a Payment

If you can’t pay your Straight Talk bill you will lose phone service. Unlike traditional phone service, there are no local, state or federal agencies offering cell phone bill support for Straight Talk service. Some Straight Talk phones require data plans and others traditional talk and text plans. If you cannot pay for the data plan service, you may be able to choose a less expensive phone that requires only talk and text.
