answer 1
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.

No...it will say "I'm sorry, Pandora does not support this device." The phone is not a SmartPhone, you will need something with a little more processing speed to stream audio.

Yes.

You have to install a micro SD card to be able to use the MP3 feature. You can buy them for less than $10 and be sure it comes with a PC card adapter if you have a laptop or a PC card adapter/USB if you have a desktop computer. You can also use a cable (buy on Ebay).

Yes and no.

The phone does have an MP3 player (requires the purchase of a micro SD card) that will play songs. You can't use the Internet while the MP3 player is in use.

And you can't stream music from the Internet, can't download music either.

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.

No, but this could be a good thing. This phone is less likely to be infected or hacked since no apps can be added.
And for parents who are concerned with their kids actions, Kids can't add apps that hide their activity.
