Nope and it's a pre-paid phone. They don't send out call records unless you have a court order for them to do so. It saves the company money so they can give cheap rates...

NO... VM (Sprint) will not work at all on the Straight Talk (Verizon) network... Sprint uses the GSM network and has a sim card in their phones where-as Verizon uses the CDMA network and has no sim card...

yes, it is the T401G.

they identify their phones by the last letter of the model,
G is for gsm phones,
C is for cdma phones.

cdma uses the verizon network

gsm uses the att network basically.

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.

answer 8
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

The R451C will only work on Verizon because it has NO sim card. It's on the Verizon CDMA network. The "C" at the end of R451C means CDMA network. They do sell a phone very similar to the R451C that DOES use a sim card that will work on AT&T's GSM network...

the unlimited talk and text cards are $45 and that will include unlimited internet as well. I don't know if you can upload pics to the pc from it. I haven't been able to do it. The only way I get them is to email them to myself from the phone, then save them from the email to my pc

30MEG's of web usage is about 300 average web pages & YES, you can access both AOL mail and Ebay from the phones mobile browser. I just did it to be sure. You have to go to the browsers "menu" and choose "Go to URL" then type in the web address and you will get the mobile version of both AOL & Ebay... or most any other site you wish.

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.
