from what i have seen, any number that you currently "own" you can port within its appropriate service area. i.e. you cannot take a number with a miami area code and port it to an atlanta zip code, but you can port any miami number to any applicable zip code.

Yes, you may indeed port any number from any service as long as it's still active. But please keep in mind, moving from GSM (SIM Card) to CDMA (Non-SIM Card) will take longer, and the process is much more difficult.

Yes, you may transfer your telephone number from another company to Straight Talk. To port in your existing telephone number to your Straight Talk phone, the number you are porting must be active with your current service provider.

You need to request Straight Talk to port in your number, Straight Talk will process your request in your behalf. In order to request the transfer and initiate the activation process please go to www.straighttalk.com/Activate,and select the radio button option "Activate my phone with a number transferred from another company."

The transferring of your number to a new Straight Talk might take a few hours; however, if there are any delays from your current wireless carrier, the transfer process could take up to 7 days and in the case of landline numbers, transfers may take up to 30 days.

Your new Straight Talk will be ready to complete activation when your old phone stops working. From Straighttalk.com

Question

Is the included"1,000 minute 30 day card" packaged inside the hard plastic shell that holds the phone?

Ordered this $99.88 phone, received it at home yesterday. I heard that even though the description on walmart.com doesn't say it comes with the $30 card, but quite a few review says it comes with it anyway.

I opened the package and only found a small yellow box (see attached picture). I slided out the clear plastic container. Without cracking open the plastic I can see the phone, and a few user manual looking booklets. Just my experience with several prepaid phone tells me none of them is a card.

So did all of you get the $30 card while paying only $99.88 for the R451C? If you did get the card, did it come INSIDE of the plastic box? Or is it a virtual credit you receive upon activation of the phone?

I just don't want open it if it doesn't come with $30 card. Thanks a million!

The phone that comes with the 1000 minute card won't allow reviews so many of the reviews are under the plain phone. This model phone with a straight talk 1000 minute card costs more than $99, it is a green card with a scratch off pin number that is separate than the phone. Sounds like to me you just bought the phone and no card.

(I'm the one who asked this question).

Okay now I know they must have corrected the mistake. For sure mine did NOT come with the free $30 card when purchased at $99.88. There's nothing else in the box but the phone. I received this phone mid-september 2010 by the way... Bad news...

That price of $99.88 does not include a $30 card. That is just the price of the phone. The deal with the card is about $129.

I ordered mine a few months back and it CLEARLY stated that it included a $30 card on the Walmart website page. It was NOT inside of the "hard" plastic shell which included the phone itself but rather in another plastic "baggie" type bag apart (but in the same shipping box) as the phone.

If you are trying to change you passcode for the very first time just go into the phones settings option (security) and enter either 0000 or the last four digits of your phone number to change it to anything you wish.... If you have forgotten your code then about the only way to go is to call CS and have them to reset it on their end and send you the new code. Be ready to answer a ton of security questions from them (to prove you are who you say you are)...

Straight Talk does offer the ability to dock (or keep) your old number. As for keeping your old phone, I seriously doubt it. You will need to contact customer care at www.straighttalk.com and as if this phone is compatable with their network. If it is, you will need to buy a SIM card from them in order for it to work.

According to how they set the phone up, they use the registration off the phone. So there would be no way to activate a phone from another company. I had the same question, and after looking online this is unfortunately what I found out. Hope this helps.

I was told by a Wal Mart employee in Roanoke, VA that the phones ending with "C" in the model # use Verizon towers. The model #'s ending in "G" use 3 different towers. I think ATT/Cingulair/Sprint but not 100% sure on that one.

The company behind Straight Talk is actually Tracfone, but the service does run off of Verizon's towers so you'd be getting the same coverage as a Verizon customer.
