If you have an active account with another provider you can transfer your number to straight talk but do not cancel your current service until after you request the transfer.

At this writing an incoming number can't be blocked on the R355C, at least not through Straight Talk (Verizone network).

There's an option in the Contact setting to set to 'No Ring' when they call you. Maybe that's a workaround for you.

Straight Talk is adding features all the time, maybe call blocking is coming.

Sure you can, easily switch to another phone. Go to the Straight Talk website (www.straighttalk.com) and click 'Support', then click 'Upgrade', and follow to activate your new phone, will transfer your telephone number. I've done this twice and it's flawless. You won't lose any time, your plan will transfer. Remember if you have any pics or messages on your current phone to email them to yourself before you switch phones or you won't be able to get them when it deactivates.

Question

Is there a place on the phone to see how many minutes are remaining on a $30 card?

I know other phones will show how many minutes, texts and data remain and your expire date when you apply a $30 card. I can't seem to find it on the r355c.

From the phone, R355C doesn't display usage. You must log on to the website to see your usage. Other models do provide it, like LG 620G has it in the handset.

im in the US and iv had this phone for over a year, it just fried today from its third or so toilett dunk >.< im unsure about europe, but it does well around the states cuz iv moved accross it. and the camer is okay qualities, you have to lower the quality in order to zoom and there is a delay so it takes like2 sometimes 3 seconds to take a picture. and if you try to send it and it may say file too big, you can get around it by going into your pictures and sending it from there

Question

can I keep my same number?

I want to know if I can keep my same phone number? Also, I have a verizon phone. Will I be able to use the phone I already have, since straight talk uses verizon's network coverage, or do I have to buy a brand new straight talk compatible phone? Please hurry, as I am excited to switch to straight talk

You can keep the same phone number. Just remember your Verizon account must be active so the phone number can be transferred.

Yes, you can keep your same phone number. You will need your account number, password, and some other information from your current cellphone provider. It doesn't take them long to port your number over. I had my number ported over and they told me it might take 24 hours, but in reality my number was ported over in 30 minutes.

I don't know if you can keep your verizon cellphone you would have to ask them. I bought a straight talk phone.

Question

What if I miss buying a card for a few days?

I can't always get to Wal-Mart to buy a new service card for my TracFone..so, I'm thinking about switching to this phone.
With the Unlimited plans for 30 days..if I accidentally don't buy another Unlimited card, what will happen? Will I have to re-activate?
(Example..say my 30 days are up on April 1st..and I don't get another card until April 4th..will I get charged or something?)
What exactly will happen?

straight talk will notify you before the thirty days expire.thru text,email or phone call. no,you will not have to reactivate the phone and you won't be charged anything.they also have auto pay where they deduct the amount every 30 days(credit or debit).you have that option when you activate the phone.all you have to do is buy the card which will last 30 days to use the phone.

You will just not be able to make any phone calls except emergency calls.
I also had to re set my voice mail..but I hear that does not happen to everyone..I kept wondering why I had no voice mails and didn't realize it till I called my voice mail after I got a new card and found out I had to reset my voice mail..
