No. Each individual phone has it's own plan. However, you can manage multiple phones using your online account with Straight Talk.

No, at least not yet! Each phone has to be registered, and each phone has to have the airtime card paid for. Straighttalk is making a lot of changes recently, so they may offer a family plan in the near future.

There are two refill cards available from StraightTalk: $30 for 1000 minutes, 1000 messages and 30MB data and $45 for unlimited message/text/data. If you have multiple phones in your family EACH phone requires a card each month.

no I don't think so. you buy a phone for yourself and buy your mintue card for your phone so you would have to buy a phone and card for each person needing a phone and a card. but the cards are 30.00 for 1,ooo mins and test 1,000 or you can buy a 45.00 card and get unlimted mins. you buy a card every 30 days. its just cheaper!

One way is to email them to yourself and download from your email.

Another way is to get a cable for the phone. You can find on Ebay:

U have to have a sims card to get the pics off the phone or a usb cord. Just put the sims card in and then change ur settings to send to card. Then u can get the card where u can insert the small sims in. Or u can just hook the usb cord into the ohone and ur computer.

Not as long as your old phone is still active. You can do online or call customer service to help you transfer the number over to new phone. you do have to sign up for auto pay for your new phone as well. Your old phone will be inactive and not longer use any min.

I personally use the LG 290C right now, and it does not use a SIM Card. Its a very reliable phone. In the 10 1/2 months I've had it I've only ever dropped 3 calls.

Here's a partial answer - Any phone model number ending in C doesn't have a sim card. The one's with a G do. They represent 2 different cell tower networks, which is probably why one works better than another in your area.

I have bought a straighttalk LG290c. I would like to buy another for my husband. My question is can we share minutes ?

We are not the kind to be on the phone long. So with two minute cards a month would be expences for us. We are going to try to get rid of old phone system.

Yes.

Phones that have 'C' in the model name are CMDA, which is the Verizon network.

Phones with 'G' in the model name are GSM phones, either AT&T or T-Mobile network. Also the Nokia E71, 6790, and E5 are GSM phones.

I was told by straight talk that if the letter C follows after the number then that means its does work from Verizon towers.

It s a 290C
The letter G means GMS and is on AT&T/T-mobile towers. I am having the same problem. I need Verizon because of better reception where I live.
