Go to straighttalk.com to check coverage. Remember that the estimates are high level estimates and are not a guarantee you'll have service. Also be sure you check areas you drive frequently and visit. Such as the route to/from work, friends and family addresses.

Since the phone you use with Straight Talk will use the network coverage footprint of one of the four largest carriers in the U.S. (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile), you will almost be guaranteed to have relatively good coverage.

First determine what one of those four networks have the best coverage in your particular ZIP code. Then choose a Straight Talk phone that uses that network.

It won't always correspond to where Straight Talk or Walmart "want to sell the phone," however. So my advice would be to not always use their ZIP code coverage determinate.

I believe if you are able to unlock the phone, you can use it at Straight Talk. You'd have to purchase from Straight Talk a SIM card that uses the AT&T network.

Check with Straight Talk BYOP for details as I'm not certain exactly what you have to do or the sequence. If your phone is compatible, yes, you will be able to use the $45 Plan featured on this page.

Generally, you can "port" your current number to Straight Talk or any other provider you choose to use. There are some circumstances that may prevent porting but in most cases, yes, you can use your current number. Just remember not to cancel your current service with Verizon before activating new service with Straight Talk.

Yes, you'd accomplish this by installing an app for that purpose. There are quite a few free Parental Control apps for Android phones (I'm assuming you will be choosing an Android but I'm pretty certain iPhones will have similar or the same apps available for their OS too).

Here's seven of the "best" Android Parental Control apps (according to the reviewer) if you want to start researching them now. Again, they're free do download from the Google Play Store (the place where Android apps are made available) ...copy-and-paste:

You can get minutes and port the number during activation.
answered 4 months ago
By

answer 2
Judy, you actually can do both during the activation process.

Once you receive the phone or purchase one at a Walmart store, you can either activate it online or over the phone with a Straight Talk rep.

In the box the phone comes in, you will find what is called an "activation card" which is a red paper card that will give you the steps to activate the phone along with the numbers Straight Talk will need, i.e. MEID, or serial number, etc.

During the activation process, they will also ask if you want to "port" your current phone number and how you'd like to pay for the first 30-days of service. You can pay at that time with a credit or debit card. You are not required to purchase the $45 service card featured on this page before activating the phone. I recommend not doing so but rather paying Straight Talk directly at the time of activation. The reason being is that you will have to transfer a code if you buy the card on this page and that only adds to the steps required to activate the phone ...it's much easier just to pay Straight Talk the $45 during the activation process with a credit card.

The porting (or transferring) of your phone number to Straight Talk from Verizon should only take a few minutes but they will warn you it could take up to two hours. From large providers such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, etc. the porting process is usually very quick; within 5 to 10-minutes. Be sure to have ready before you begin the activation process, the following information for porting:

1. Your contact Information as it is registered with Verizon ...address with ZIP code, etc.

2. Your account number at Verizon

3. Your PIN, password, or access code to your Verizon account

Is straight talk 3G or 4G?

on Straight Talk Unlimited* Text, Talk and Web Access 30-Day Service Card (Email Delivery)

answer 1
Both, but it depends on the network. When connected to AT&T via 4G for example, you will have low priority (under corporate and AT&T customers). As a result, they limit the bandwidth so much that 3G is faster. At sporting events, or anywhere that has a large number of people trying to use the network, my internet does not work at all.

Your experiences may differ.

answer 2
Clista, since Straight Talk has many service options, it will depend on the phone model and the network the model uses (or the SIM card if BYOP). As an MVNO, Straight Talk uses the networks of the four major U.S. carriers; Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile ...each phone model is predetermined to use one of those networks and it will use that network for the life of the phone on Straight Talk service and no matter where you travel in the U.S.

Some Straight Talk phones (and/or SIM cards) will have access to 4G LTE and some HSPA+ which is very fast 3G that some consider 4G.

No Verizon phones used on Straight Talk will have 4G access but some Straight Talk phones using Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile will be able to access 4G (HSPA+) or 4G LTE.

Simple answer is, YES, some Straight Talk phones will have 4G LTE access depending on the phone model and network used.

Yes. Most apps will use Wi-Fi whenever it is available instead of the providers network. You can also disable Data from being used over the providers network at all and only use Wi-Fi hot spots if you choose.

Hope This Helps :)

LMNiss, yes, just about every smartphone I can think of that Straight Talk offers, including their iPhones, will have the ability to use WiFi. Therefore, you have the option of using WiFi or the mobile internet access provided by the plan. You are correct, using WiFi will not use any of the data given by the plan itself.

You don't choose a carrier. Your carrier is StraightTalk (Tracfone?) which, for CDMA, is Verizon? And for GSM is ATT?

Steve, my suggestion (and others may disagree) is to first choose the phone you'd like to purchase from Straight Talk. Base your choice on features and price.

Your first decision is to choose either a feature phone (non-smartphone) or a smartphone. Straight Talk smartphones will use Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows, and possibly Fire operating systems.

If choosing a new Straight Talk feature phone (non-smartphone), the majority will use either the Verizon network (CDMA) or the AT&T network (GSM). A non-smartphone can use either the $30 Plan or one of the Unlimited Plans such as this one, the $45 Plan (or multiple-month bundles sold at a discount) or the $60 Unlimited International Plan.

If choosing a new Straight Talk smartphone --or one that uses an Android, iOS, BlackBerry, or Windows Operating Systems-- it can use any one of the four major U.S. carriers ...Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. Choose the phone first and then determine what network it uses on Straight Talk. If it uses a network that will work for you, then you can proceed to purchase the phone. If it doesn't use a network you like or are able to use in your area, then choose another Straight Talk phone which will.

All smartphones on Straight Talk service will require THIS plan (the $45 or multiple-month bundles) or the $60 Unlimited International Plan.

The Straight Talk phone you choose will use ONLY ONE network (contrary to what some believe) and will use that network no matter where you travel in the U.S. for as long as you own the phone while on Straight Talk service. It will NOT bounce back and forth using different carriers/networks or use one network in some parts of the country and a different one in other parts of the country, etc. ...a Straight Talk phone is predetermined and configured to use only ONE of the four networks and will do so no matter where you travel in the U.S.

CDMA phones on Straight Talk (ones using Verizon or Sprint) will use "native" coverage ONLY which means they will not roam. GSM phones on Straight Talk (ones using AT&T or T-Mobile) may have limited roaming.

You also may be able to bring your own phone to Straight Talk. And you can also bring a new unlocked GSM phone to Straight Talk by purchasing a SIM card kit from ST and using the phone on either the AT&T network or the T-Mobile network. Walmart has an extensive selection of nice unlocked GSM phones.

My brother actually just went through this with a phone he bought from a friend, it was a Samsung Galaxy 3 and it was bought from AT&T. My brother had the option to switch over to Straight Talk. If he went that route he had to first unlock the phone and then buy the straight talk package that is for switching over to straight talk, that I believe comes with the SIM card for a first month prepaid card.
