Sure, that's what I do, so I don't have to always remember when I need to make a payment for air time. They will automatically charge your credit/debit card, or your bank account (your choice), when your payment is due, or when you run out of paid airtime.

Can I receive emails from outlook express or web mail on a straight talk LC 290C phone.

Where I am located messages can be sent to my ST LG290C using ##########@vtext.com

One way to see what your own address is, is to compose a new message to yourself (you can put email addresses in the TO line) from your phone and see what the reply to address is.

What I don't know is if these types of messages count as text, data or both.

You can port your number to a Straight Talk phone from Verizon. I would do it online on Straight Talk's website. It's easier than calling. I believe it CAN take about 2 hours (that's what they told me when I tried on the phone) but I think it actually took an hour or less when I did my son's phone online. I believe the option you want to choose once you sign in to Straight Talk's website is "activate/reactivate" then I think it drops down and says "transfer number". It should give you some options on how you want to transfer (transfer from another Straight Talk phone, transfer from another carrier, etc). Hope I explained well! Good luck!

Sure, as long as your old account with Verizon is still active. You can call the pre-paid service you select when you receive your phone and they can port it for you. You will need to give them your Verizon account number. If it's a mobile to mobile port, it may take up to a day, but often it only takes a few hours, depending on the carrier.

Possibly the one you were looking at on Straighttalk was a refurbished phone.

straighttalk and Tracfone are the same company and yet sraighttalk charges 70 for this phone and I got mine through Tracfone and it was 20 ...makes no sence. I got ahold of the company to see if they would or could switch it to straighttalk since i have tracfone and they said no...go figure!!!
