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.

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.

answer 1
You can keep your present number if you transfer it from your old service provider, but it will take quite some time, before the number will be transferred, (Can be up to 2-3 weeks in some cases), and during that time you cannot use the straight talk phone.

I can't speak for Netelos but I was able to transfer my number from AT&T. The transfer was completed within a few hours of my request.

answer 3
as far as I know you can keep your number ! It may take awhile longer to get you phone on though because your keeping the same number. its faster to get your phone on if you just get a new number. no paper work or anytihng and its more simple for them . i didn't keep my same number cause I didn't want to wait that long. I needed my phone turned on soon as possible!

I am in Orange, CA. In this area it is a CDMA phone and appears to be using Verizon's network. When calling my number after I requested the transfer to this phone, but before it was complete instead of getting my old AT&T voice mail I got the message "The Verizon customer you are calling is not available..."

I recorded several of my own ringtones on this phone by playing the music on my player, and holding the phone next to the loudspeaker. You go to MY Folders, then to audios, when you open audios, in the lower left side of your screen you'll see the word "voice", hit the left MINUS button, and that will change to Audio. Start your music that you want for the Ringtone and start your phone on Record. Keep your phone close to the speaker, and it will record. After recording the music, the phone will ask you to save the music, click save, and it will be saved in the audios folder, but not in the Ringtones folder. Go to the audios folder, highlight the music you want, and under options on the screen, you will get a "Set as" choice. set it as your ringtone, and you are done!! Enjoy
