Straight Talk runs off whatever network is available in the area. Whatever the selection is just choose one, should be ok. Or if you look in your setup you should find you cand set your network to 'automatic' to allow the system to make the choice.

Question

How lon may I keep my original phone number after my initial activation?

I live and work in Afghanistan. I come back to the U.S. once every four months for a two week vacation.

When I'm on vacation and I activate my prepaid phone and receive my original number but only use it for two weeks, will I have that same number when I return on my vacation four months later?

This is very important. I do not want to change phone numbers every four months because I am not using the phone. Please reply as soon as possible. Thanks...TR

I asked straight talk this myself. they said it may be up to 30 days w/o active to try and get old number back. they might fight you on this. i tried and when my old service was done they didn't want to give me old number. so i said give me new number..well they had lots of customer service problems..and when they looked for my information for my acct they couldn't find it under new number but under old. Since i had changed everything to new i wanted them to give me the new one,they did. Facebook has a straight talk page where you have a discussion page. actual ST agents go there to answer questions.good luck.

I believe that it depends on the sim card. this is my second phone and it works off at&t but my first one worked off verizon. Both work better than either of the name brand networks though. I get better service with this phone than I ever got with our verizon phones.

answer 4
it is AT&T. I had a straight talk similar to this one until after a year and a half it had it.
I bought this one. The sales associate said it was now AT&T. I was skeptical but needed a phone. I got it.

I could not get a signal in or outside of my home. I got a signal two miles from my home.

I took it back. Without verizon in my area..it was worthless.

If I am not mistaken yes. I had my phone replaced and was able to keep my same number. If your phone is damaged call tech support and trouble shoot it. If the phone is defective and able to be shipped to them under warranty they will then ship you one back.

No, you have to buy that phone again but specically for ST service. Something inside is programmed just for each particular company. I also have the T401G with Net10 and had to buy another to use with ST. The money you save pays for the phone in the long run. Sell your Net10 phone if you won't be using it. This is a great phone. I love it.
