Yes, if you have another straight talk phone just call and transfer to new one. if you have another carrier, you must first cancel acct. with other carrier. Then call straight talk and activate new phone with number you want to keep.

You can keep your current number and have it ported to your new phone. Be aware there is a possibility you may be without service for a few days. I had problems with a defective phone and it was the 3rd day without service that they realized that it was my phone and not the port that was the problem. However I have a friend who had her number transferred in about an hour. They tell you it could take up to a of couple days to transfer a phone number.

You can keep your old phone number. Whenever you get a new StraightTalk phone just simply call the Customer Service line (you may be able to do it through their site but I wouldn't know from experience) and let them know you bought a new phone and would like to activate it and continue service on it but you want your old number. This is not applicable if you were not already a StraightTalk customer.

Yes.

You have the option to transfer (port) your current/active telephone # when you activate your Straight Talk phone.

If you're new to Straight Talk you might consider trying it out for a month before you port your telephone #. When you activate your phone take a random phone number and if you're satisfied you can transfer your current cell telephone. I transferred from $print two years ago, completely satisfied.

Question

My Verizon plan is so very expensive, but good reception in mountains. Do this phone and Straight Talk offer good reception in mountainous areas?

I live in Miami, Florida, but visit North Carolina and Tennessee mountain areas. I switched from ATT to Verizon due to poor reception in the mountains. Do this phone and Straight Talk provide good reception in the mountains?

I was told it uses verizon network but dont call verizon for support cause they won't know what you're talking about. I looked up my phone info online and it showed up as a verizon number. And I have great reception so I would say yes it does.

It should. The C in the model number R451C indicates CDMA Network, which is the Network that Verizon use.

It does have a calender.
Menu > Tools(8) > Calender(2).

You can add any type of event to the desired date and you can set up Alarms/Alerts/Reminders if you so desire. Just use the directional pad to select the date and hit "Add". You should be able to follow from there.

No you don't HAVE to use the full keyboard to text, although to use the internet browser you have to have it open, or it will not open and if you close the keyboard while your using the internet it'll close the browser.

You must first cancel Verizon acct. before you can use that number on new phone. But call straight talk right after you do, so Verizon won't issue your number to someone else.

Current number can be transferred by using the Straight Talk website or calling Customer Service for assistance.

There's no charge to transfer a phone #.

Yes you can buy the phone and activate it with a random telephone number if that's what you like initially. Whence you're ready, simply go thru activation again and transfer your number. That's a smart process, to be sure the Straight Talk phone will perform in your area.

It may depend on the carrier, but I am porting my old # from AT&T. When you activate your phone, choose the option to use an old phone #. They say it may take up to 7 days for the number to get ported. You must have your old # still in service until the port is completed.

All CDMA phones run off the Verizon tower. All GSM phones (meaning they have a SIM card) run off the ATT towers.
