Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Samsung Prepaid Phone with Keyboard, R451C

Question

I also would like verification that the R451c model does operate with Verizon towers. I was looking at the box it comes in today at Walmart, and it

shows a BLUE US country outline on the front. Blue is supposed to be AT&T and T-Mobile, so I thought. And red means Verizon. Anyone know for sure which towers provide the service for this model?

I live in Minneapolis, MN and had the phone for about 2 yrs. This phone runs on Verizon Towers and I have never had a dropped call. I have had an AT&T Contract phone that could not even get reception in my home office but this phone no problem!! Same problem with friends visiting with T-Mobile not getting reception from my home office. THIS IS A QUALITY PHONE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS! MAY NOT HAVE ALL THE EXPENSIVE FRILLS BUT SERVES IT'S PURPOSE WELL & IS NOT EXPENSIVE!!

I'm actually on it alot with facebook and in my opinion it works pretty well. The screen is big enough to see everything, you can actually view pictures and it allows you to update your status and comment on other statuses as fast as you would on a computer. There's also a feature where you can sign up for texts from facebook whenever you get a notification. I hope this helps! :)

It will work very well. You will have some features not available to you, but I was able to register and log on with no problems. I use it on facebook every day to stay in touch with friends and family. When you click on the browser it opens a mobile web page. The first option highlighted is email & networking, click on this. Then just scroll down to facebook, and your there. I opened a hotmail account and now use my phone to check my email as well.

NO roaming but it does include long distance. It uses the Verizon CDMA network so it should work just about anywhere you need it to (there are a few dead zones)... but your local calling area is anywhere there's a Verizon tower in the USA... so really there's no need for roaming...Verizon's just about everywhere now-a-days...

It does have a calendar, and on the model I have, which is only slightly different, it has multiple options for the type of calendar. I do believe this model also has GPS, on mine though it does not. I haven't figured out if my model is the "newer" or "older" version. But the features are mainly the same.

Question

Does this Straight Talk phone include a 30 day service card?

In one woman's review, she commented on how it was such a good deal when she bought it online (as opposed to in the store) as it came with a 1,000 minute, 30 day service card (a $30 value). The description here doesn't seem to mention it.

DOES it come with that card?

Two things, partially in response to your question, and one in response to the previous respondent.

Yes, straighttalk.com DOES sell this one with a 30 days 1,000 minute card, as a bundle. However, that's priced at $130, new.

That's $50 more than the price online, and $70 more than the in-store price (which would leave enough left over to buy TWO $30 cards).

It just depends on the particular deal offered by Walmart at the time. I don't know what kind of "bundle" deals the Straight Talk site might offer. You can just check out both sites and see where you find the best deals.

It is Straight Talk, but uses the Verizon network. When you call 411 the greeting is "Welcome to Verizon Wireless 411". Straighttalk and Verizon have the same coverage if you look at them closely at a local Wal-Mart store.

The samsung r451c is for verizon towers. If the end of the model number is a C then it's for verizon, C meaning CDMA. If it has a G at the end of the model number then it's for AT&T, with the G standing for GSM.
