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.

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!!

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...
