You can't use a cell phone from another carrier.
This prepaid product is paid every 30 days and you will either renew (buy another 30 days) or it will stop working, there is no contract. There are no roaming fees. You pay a set price of $45 (plus local sales tax) and no more. The phone works 'nationwide' to other cell phones, residential business land lines. Usage is nationwide unlimited calling (inbound/outbound) anytime minutes, texting, and mobile web to any phone. So, to answer your question, there are no additional fees, call any phone nationwide AND that includes Puerto Rico, Virgin Isles, Hawaii, and Alaska. It does not include Canada or Mexico.
Access to the internet is unlimited but it depends on the phone that you buy as to what kind of web sites you can visit. And that depends on the capability of the Straight Talk phone you choose. If you choose the LG 100C internet is very basic, the browser is very basic. If you choose the Nokia E71 or Samsumg Galaxy Precedent you can visit just about any site and download apps and watch videos. The range of access comes down to the functionality of phone you choose. All of the phones accept the $45 plan.
You must buy another $45 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). You can prepay, you can use a credit card, you can setup 'reserve' plans that activate as your current plan expires, you can pay as you go or pay for 180 days or a year.
You'll save a bundle with Straight Talk. There's no other carrier that has $45 unlimited. None. I switched two years ago this month with not one regret.
