Straight Talk Customer Support – How to get help

Straight Talk Customer Support

Are you having trouble with your Straight Talk, Net 10 or TracFone cell phone?  Straight Talk customer support can help.

Here are some lesser-known ways to get help with your phone, including Straight Talk Executive Customer Support

Before you contact customer support, please be sure to check the online guides that Straight Talk provides, that may very well answer your question!

Straight Talk genuinely wants to help their customers, but to keep prices low, they do use techniques such as offshore call centers that can sometimes be frustrating when you are trying to get your problem resolved.

Information to have when Contacting Customer Service

You’ll want to have the following on-hand when you contact Straight Talk Customer Service

  1. Straight Talk MEID DEC / Serial Number

How to Get Additional Help from Straight Talk Customer Support

If you didn’t get anywhere with the normal customer service line, you are not alone.  The normal customer service line is limited in the types of issues they are able to handle, and I’ve had to escalate issues several times beyond the first representative I spoke with.

Note: Please do not use the advanced methods listed below unless your attempts to call the normal Straight Talk customer service line have failed.  If everyone uses these as their primary contact method to customer service, they will become much less useful.

Ask to speak to a Supervisor

While on the regular support line, ask to speak to a supervisor if you feel your concerns are not being handled.

Twitter

You can send Straight Talk a tweet @AskStraightTalk and they may reply with a mechanism to get more help.  They do not appear to be very active on Twitter anymore, so your experience may vary.  But it is worth a try.

Facebook

You can send Straight Talk a private message on Facebook for extra help. They are listed as being “Very Responsive” to messages on Facebook, so this is a pretty good option to get in contact.

Contact an Executive

Contact an executive at Straight Talk, like the CEO F.J. Pollack.  Chances are you’ll be routed to an assistant, rather than the CEO himself, but calling and asking for the CEO, or other executives can get your support case noticed.

If All Else Fails

If all else fails in dealing with Straight Talk customer support, you might consider some other options for resolving your situation:

  1. Consider another phone carrier.  If all the above methods didn’t work, maybe Straight Talk just isn’t for you.
  2. Submit a complaint through the Better Business Bureau
