Next time you load your plan to the phone go to the straight talk website and use the refill area. When you do this it will reset your phones pass code to the last 4 digits of your phone #.

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.

Question

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.
