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

Question

Size of the phone?

The specifications say this phone is over 10 inches long (for those playing along at home, that's nearly a foot). I assume that's a mistake. Would anyone be willing to measure their phone?

This is a GREAT question and I have the answer... YES, you can but ONLY if you have a "Bluetooth" printer... Just send your picture using the Bluetooth on your phone to your Bluetooth printer... It works great but I find it easier just to send them from Bluetooth from the phone to my Bluetooth computer.... then print as I need to.... GREAT question !!!

Question

If you get the version of this phone that only uses at&t/t-mobile towers, do you have to pick t-mobile or at&t, or can you use both towers?

Please do not answer this question with "Verison." That doesn't answer the question.

You do not choose the towers. The phone you are talking about is the Samsung T404G. I have a friend who had that phone. I have been told that AT&T and T-Mobile use the same towers. This particular phone you have this question under is the Samsung R451C and it runs off of Verizon. All phones models ending in the letter "C" (cdma) run off of Verizon towers. The phone models ending in the letter "G" (gsm) run off AT&T/T-Mobile towers.

OK ... I think I know what you're asking. This phone (R451C) will NOT work on either AT&T or T-Mobile because it is a CDMA phone..... The T401G (very much alike) WILL use AT&T or T-Mobile but you DO NOT get to choose.... Straight Talk will sell you the phone that has the best service in you area... Also, Walmart will only have in stock the phone that works best in your area.... either AT&T or T-Mobile, but not both ....

"C" in the model name means CDMA and that is VERIZON network.

451C is not going to work on the AT$T /T-Mobile Towers.

If you need or want phones for AT$T or T-Mobile look for "G" in the model name or no letter code at all.

So.... VERIZON.

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 does have a calender.

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.

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.
