How to Put More Minutes on Your Straight Talk Phone

By Thomas McNish

Straight Talk is a partner company of TracFone, and works in a similar way. There are no contracts, so users pay for their service month by month, or by purchasing minutes whenever they feel like it. If your Straight Talk minutes have run out, you can refill them by visiting Straight Talk's website.There are no rollover minutes with Straight Talk, so even if you have leftover minutes from a couple months back, you'll still need to put more minutes on your Straight Talk phone.

Step 1

Log onto

Step 2

Hover your cursor over the "Refill" tab at the top of the page, then select "Refill On Demand."

Step 3

Log into your account by entering your email address and password. If you don't yet have an account, create one by clicking "First time log in or first time user" and entering your Straight Talk phone number on the following page.
