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!

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

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.

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.

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!
