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.

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.

The Samsung R355C is a CDMA phone that operates on the Verizon Network. If the phone model # ends with a "C" it is a CDMA/Verizon phone/network. If the model # ends with a "G", it is a GSM phone/Network that operates on either AT&T or Verizon.

CDMA for Verizon only. All models ending in the letter C are for Verizon. Models ending in the letter G are GSM and work on the AT&T network.

You can transfer your number to Straight Talk phone at any time as long is your service for Verizon is still active. When you transfer your number to Straight Talk phone, you automatically close your Verizon account.

Once you transfer your number, your existing phone has no service. With no service and a year to go on your contract, you will probably have to pay Verizon their fee for breaking the contract.

These new phones are terrible with long nails. Mine are 3 inches (real) and I swear I want my old Sanyo 4900 (1998) phone back. That phone was great with nails! LOL. Oh well I guess times are changing. A stylus is recommended. Good Luck!

Yes it has the ability to light up. Go to Settings, Display Settings, Backlight, Keypad, select a duration. It should be lighting up automatically as I see no option to turn it off. Sounds like your keypad is not functioning 100%. Call Customer Service and perhaps they can troubleshoot or reset your phone.
