I activated two phones in Nov 2009.

For my main # I use my credit card for auto refill and it's been great, including the "13th month free".

With my second line I decided to not give a credit card and have used a variety of different options including the 3 month prepay plan. I upgraded during that period and it went smoothly. I liked not having to worry about buying another plan for several months of course.

During the three months I had no issues. I would not hesitate to do a three month refill again if it fit my needs. I've never committed to keeping this second line and that's why I use the "Reserve" option instead, buying one plan at a time and adding them to my account prior to expiration of my current plan. See the Straight Talk website for details.

Another upside to mulitple month pre-pay is, if ever the price increases you're locked in at the lower price for the plan (s).

I can't think of a negative, it's really about preferences and lifestyle.

Good luck!

Prepaid means that you pay your monthly charge in advance. With Straight talk, you get unlimited calling, text, and web for only $45 per month, great deal if you use your cell phone a lot, or you can get 1000 mins + 1000 texts + 30MB web for $30 per month, great if you are on a tighter budget or have a home phone. Yes, you can"port" your number from Verizon if it is still an active number during initial set-up.

It means there is no contract! And yes, you can import your verizon number (if you are talking about straight talk) as I did just a couple of days ago......just don't let your service lapse or you will lose your number is what I was told by the ST CS.

"R355C" is a Straight Talk Samsung phone that can be used with either the $30 or $45 Straight Talk plans. This prepaid product is paid every 30 days and you will either renew (buy another 30 days) or it will stop working. There are no roaming fees. The phone works 'nationwide' and you can add International too. If you buy the $45 plan it's nationwide unlimited calling (inbound/outbound) anytime minutes, texting, and mobile web. If you buy the $30 plan you get 1000/1000/30mb of calls/text/mobilweb usage. You can't 'go over' those limits with the $30 plan, it'll just stop working once you reach the max's. Example if you used all your allotments in 25 days instead of 30 days you would need to buy another 30 day plan to keep your phone active. At any point that you do not keep your phone active you will lose your telephone # (there is a 3 day grace though).

And yes you may transfer (port) your active phone number to a Straight Talk phone, an option during activation.

All fo the above is how it works. I was with $print 8years and in 2009 transferred my number to STraight Talk. The process took 15 minutes, some say it takes an hour.

If Verizon is strong in your area this mode "R355C" is great, I can personally say. Very solid phone and rarely drops a call, love the MP3 player, picture messages, Bluetooth (has some limitations) takes and makes calls from my Jeeps receiver. I actually have two of these phones, one is a backup and I use it as a spare battery charger :) Lots of accessories are available on Ebay too.

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.
