yes, as long as you have the account number and PIN/password for your previous carrier. I just imported my old number a couple of night ago. They told me it could take as long as 2-7 days to complete the importing and it was DONE within probably 5 minutes......VERY FAST!

I had no trouble porting my previous cell number to this phone; however, it depends on what you are porting from. A landline would take longer. The process took less than a day for my port from Sprint cell.

Yes, you may transfer your telephone number from another company to Straight Talk. To port in your existing telephone number to your Straight Talk phone, the number you are porting must be active with your current service provider.

You need to request Straight Talk to port in your number, Straight Talk will process your request in your behalf. In order to request the transfer and initiate the activation process please go to www.straighttalk.com/Activate,and select the radio button option "Activate my phone with a number transferred from another company."

The transferring of your number to a new Straight Talk might take a few hours; however, if there are any delays from your current wireless carrier, the transfer process could take up to 7 days and in the case of landline numbers, transfers may take up to 30 days.

Your new Straight Talk will be ready to complete activation when your old phone stops working.

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.

this is a tough question because it depends on a persons use and the age of the phone. My phone is 10months old and i use about 20mins talk time and send about 15-10 texts a day and it lasts me 2 days but it did last 2-3 days longer when new. And if your a teen and constantly text, it will not last as long either.

Depends. If the 355C is still available online the "Ship To Store" option should be available. It's available for phones available in my area but the 355C is no available longer online in my area. Go to walmart.com and do a search for "355C".

Contact customer support via email and ask that they remove the announcement. It takes a day or two, but the message will be gone. :-)
