Straightalk is a phone service from Walmart offering a pay-as-you-go service, which means you put credit on your phone and have an allocated amount of call minutes, text messages, picture messages and Internet usage without having to sign a contract which can have you locked in for years. It is a popular service for people who do not wish to commit to paying a contract every month which can be expensive and can lead to surprising bills if the user has used more call minutes or sent more text messages than they have been allocated.
If your Straightalk account has been disabled, it probably means that you have not topped up your expired credit for quite some time. You need to refill your account balance to reactivate it. To refill your account balance you can call 1-877-430-Cell (2355) and top up using your debit card. There are many alternative ways to top up your account. You can buy a Straight Talk Service Card at participating Wal-Mart locations or talk to a Straightalk representative about setting up an ‘Auto-Refill Account’. This will automatically top up your phone when you run out of credit and is considered the quickest and most convenient method for the majority of Straightalk’s users. You could also use a service plan whereby you pay a certain amount up front and this will last you anywhere between one month and one year. The All You Need for $30 or one is a popular service plan and provides you with 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30MG of Internet usage. One month for $45 gives you unlimited calls, texts and Internet. Three months for $135, six months for $270 and one year for $540 also provides you with unlimited usage and ensures you do not receive surprising bills every month and you will have paid upfront and your Straightalk account cannot expire or be disabled.

I called 1-800-876-5753(tracfone-customer service and tech. Support) and I was put on hold for a minute or two, but after that it went straight to a representative for tracfone. Just tell them you are with straight talk and it says your phone says "prepaid service disabled." They will give you two codes and after each code it will restart your phone. It takes a maximum of 5 minutes for the conversation. It was very easy. I hope it works, good luck.

The straight talk folks have a language barrier and don't understand the Service Disabled part of it!

I just got my phone yesterday and was able to activate it with no problem. I just tried to send a text message and now it says prepaid service disabled. I don't know if I did it by accident or my service was really disabled through the company. What should I do about this problem?

I have a stright talk phone and the service was disabled on it as well because my kid was playing with it. They told me to enter this code: 6914-8422-3819-3191-5198-848
Hopefully it works. Its worth a try considering you can't dial out anyway.

Here are the two codes for my little brothers LG...
1454 7670 3946 4467 8899 390

9547 1305 1503 7089 8128 185

I guess it happens when they play around in the code entry mody...I hope this helps to end the aggravation associated with this issue.

___THIS IS HOW YOU FIX YOUR DISABLE STRAIGHTTALK PHONE__

1) First go to the code entry mode in your prepaid menu, and enter the code
  5790718848658 then it should say code accepted and then shut your phone off and turn it back on.

2) Once your phone is back on hit  *22890 and it will start re-activation of your phone and restart your phone automatically.

ONCE YOUR PHONE TURNS BACK ON PRESTO IT WILL WORK ONCE AGAIN.
