You have to purchase either the $45 unlimited card or sign up for auto payments which deduct from a CC or debit card.

No contract or monthly plan. I usually add my minutes online the day before it's up, no need to go to the store and buy the card. Also they have options online to buy in 3, 6 or 12 month increments.

You just buy the minutes card and refill when needed. I have had this phone for 11months now and I love it!

The Straight Talk plan is good for a 30 day period. I set up my account so it automatically drafts from my credit card. There has been no problem with billing or running out of minutes to date.

You have to go to the browser to get your emails: hotmail, gmail, and yahoo!mail. So unfortunately you don't get any notification on your "home" screen. Missed calls will just show on the screen you missed a call.

Yes, you could keep your same number. However, I switched from verizon and because my contract wasn't up i had to pay $120 t cancel. But, I made a mistake- I ported my number early and now i must pay the $120 plus my next billing cycle. So check into that.

Yes, you need to port you number over. My phone number was originally with AT&T then I ported to T-Mobile for 4 years then over to straight talk 1 1/2 years ago.

Yes.

You can only transfer an active number, keep in mind. The process is very simple and quick. When you're ready to activate your Straight Talk phone go to the website's activation menu and follow the prompts.

No, it is not unfortunately. But is a good phone. Usually smart phones are used to surf the internet and play games and social networking etc. This phone is NOT a smart phone and if you are looking for a phone like that then i do NOT recommend it. If you are looking to just make calls and text, then yes i DO recommend it.

You usually just go to the store and purchase a card with a 15 digit pin. Then you call the 1-800 number and add airtime. I go month by month. And go in and buy a card at the end of the month and it seems to work for me! Hope this helps!

Go to the store and buy a new one? Your not on a contract so you can get a new phone anytime. You need to port your number over to the new phone.

answer 2
Unlike contract service provider there is no upgrade.

If you want a new phone you buy it outright.

When you're ready to switch to the new phone go to the Straighttalk.com website menu and select "SUPPORT/ PHONE UPGRADE". That feature moves your current/active phone number and service plan to your new phone.

Your old phone will be deactivated and can be reactivated the same way, if you wanted to do that.

yes, phone does have a key lock. go under settings, to auto key lock. turn it on. Problem is, that auto key lock doesn't activate until about 90 seconds after inactivity. so if you quickly shove it into your purse/pants, you can still press numbers. that's happened to me a few times. i was actually online, wasting my gigs, and didn't realize it. and i went into settings under security and tried to choose my own passcode, but it didn't take. hope this helps.
