Question

Copy contacts to MicroSD card?

I want to copy/backup the contacts from my R451C onto my MicroSD card. How would I do that?
Or, is there an alternative (simpler) way to back up my contacts from the R451C?

Go to your contacts list and the go to options from the right soft key... scroll down each entry and tick the box on all you contacts and send the Vcard by bluetooth to your new phone. They will ALL transfer at once... better than doing them one by one... I just did it myself, takes about 15 seconds and I had over 100 contacts... and BTW, there is no way to save them on you memory card... It doesn't function the same as a sim card...

There's no simple way to do it. You can only copy your contacts using the bluetooth connection (on both phones), and You can only transfer one by one. A tedious and slow way to do it, but it's a better alternative than having to enter them (each and every one) as new entries. As an additional downside, just like it would be with any other phone, some of the information that you can save in this phone's phonebook might not be compatible with your other phone's phonebook; therefore you might not be able to transfer/copy all the details (fax #, Pager #, Pic ID, email add., etc ).

After working with the Samsung R451C for almost a year now, I have come to the conclusion that there is NO way to save your contacts. You CANNOT transfer contacts to another phone with this item.

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?

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.

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.

I switched from AT&T. It took about 5 days. During that time I kept on using my AT&T phone and carried the Net10 phone with me in case the switch was made - so that I wouldn't miss any calls.
