No. This is a prepaid phone from Walmart that uses the Straight Talk phone. I used to have a verizon prepaid phone for years.
I switched to Straight Talk & bought the Samsung R451C. The Samsung R451C phone uses the Verizon cell towers.
I have very good service, many more minutes (even on the $30.00 plan).
Very happy with Straight Talk!

Look on Amazon for R451C cover or SCH-R450 cover, which is basically the same phone. Good luck.

I think I just "googled" and found some. I gave the phone to my husband and he decided that he did not want a case, so I never ordered one. But I did find some cases I could have ordered.

I also had this problem.I could not find a case at the usual places.I had to go to flee markets or farmers markets.It was a long search but well worth it.I found my phone felt slippery in my hand so I knew I had to find a case.

I have a R451C and it does not have a sim card in it and it is thru straighttalk. I think straighttalk uses verizon towers but dont call verizon for support, they won't know what you're talking about and you can't take phone to different provider, not even to verizon even though it uses their towers.

Yes. The C in R451C stands for CDMA. I emailed TracFone about how to tell the difference in GSM and CDMA phones, and this is how their reply said you can tell.
The last letter of the phone model, G or C, is the give away. G = GSM, C = CDMA.

This phone works through Verizon and I LOVE the Verizon network. I had a contract with AT&T previously. The fact that this phone uses the Verizon network was a major factor in my choice of phone.

Thru Walmart. Two plans. $45 unlimited everything: Talk, Text and Web. $30: 1000 talk, 1000 texts, 30mb web. You can check your balance online at straighttalk.com or call them.

You buy a card from a local Walmart store and call the number on the back and enter the code under the scratch off and your service will be refilled. The Straight Talk phones use other main phone companies service such as Verizon or AT&T. Hope this helped :D

Service period is 30 days (not monthly.

Service can be bought from Walmart.com or a Walmart store or thru the Straight Talk website.

There are options to 'Refill on demand' and you can use a credit card for continuous service and you can buy packages of time like traditional prepaid phones that keep your phone active for 30 days periods, 60 days, 90 days, 120 days, up to 1 year.

There are no call records, no statements, it's anonymous.

There are two plans. $30 'All You Need' is for 30 days duration for 1000 anytime/ inbound/ outbound minutes, 1000 text messages, 30 MB of 'mobile web services'. You also pay sales tax and a small Universal fee. I currently pay $32.54. Once you reach your call limit you must make sure to buy another plan even if it's not been 30 days to avoid losing your #.

$45 unlimited is for 30 days duration and unlimited calls, text, and 'mobile web services'. You need to buy a new plan before the 30 days is up to keep your telephone #. Some smart phones also let you download applications and are far more advanced than the other phone models, still there are some limitations. Read the Terms of Service carefully to understand what you are and are not entitled to.

There are no contracts, you can try new phones by simply buying one and activating it. Your plan follows you to your new phone, there's no loss of service, no fees to move to a new phone.
