I don't think so.

Before I called to activate my phone and have my number ported, I transferred all my contacts to a SD card, then moved the numbers to the new phone via the card.

Yes.

You must buy a Straight Talk phone with your $45 Straight Talk plan. When you activate your phone you'll have the option to accept a random phone number in your calling area or you can choose to transfer (port) an active cell phone # to your new phone.

Question

Do I have to buy a cell phone from Walmart

I have an existing cell phone from an old Sprint account. Name says Sanyo but the manufacturer was Quallcom. On the back of the phone it says Quallcom 3G CDMA. Can I just purchase the straight talk package and use with this phone, or do I have to purchase a phone from Walmart.

The $45 plan includes unlimited talk, text and data. However, I've seen many complaining on the StraightTalk facebook page that they weren't able to access the internet for short amounts of time...there's this tricky thing called the fair usage agreement that you enter into by using the internet on your phone (really on most wireless carriers). I check my email and facebook several times a day and have never had trouble with it though.

Yes.

$45 unlimited includes unlimited access to mobile web, including videos and music and downloads.

The way to look at Straight Talk is, the plan is the same for all phones however not every phone has the same capabilities. Example, if you buy the low-tech phone LG 100C you have limited choices for Internet. If you buy the Galaxy Precedent you have full access to sites like Youtube and Facebook.

At the time you activate service with Straight Talk, you will have the opportunity to "port" you current number.

You should keep your current service active ...do NOT cancel your service as it will automatically be cancelled when the porting process is complete.

You should be prepared to give Straight Talk the following information at the time of activation:

1. Your contact Information including ZIP code as it is registered with your current service provider

2. Your account number with your current service provider

3. Your PIN or password to the account

Question

Does straight talk use all together verizon, at&t, and Tmobile or does it depend on the card you get? I am trying to switch from Sprint to prepaid.

depends on what phone you buy.

Sebrina, Straight Talk uses all four of the major U.S. carriers' networks; Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. What determines what network a phone or your phone will use with Straight Talk will depend on the phone model (not the service card you buy) or the SIM card used if a GSM BYOP phone.

Each phone model Straight Talk sells will have a predetermined network which it will use. Straight Talk determines what network the phone will use. A model may have two versions --for instance, one running on Verizon and another using Sprint (as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy SIII). A phone on Straight Talk service will only use ONE network and will do so no matter where you travel in the U.S. and for as long as the phone is on Straight Talk service.

Contrary to popular belief, a phone will not use one network in one area and switch to another network in other locations. If a Straight Talk phone uses Verizon, for example, it will use Verizon no matter where you are or where you travel in the U.S. It will NOT use Verizon in one city and AT&T in another. Many believe that a Straight Talk phone will use the strongest signal available no matter what the network and that is NOT true.

If you take any given phone here on the Walmart website that Straight Talk is selling, you will see that some models use Verizon, some use AT&T, some Sprint, and even some use T-Mobile.

If you bring an "unlocked GSM" phone to Straight Talk service, depending on the bands the phone can use, you will have the choice of using it on either the AT&T network or the T-Mobile network.

This $45 Unlimited service card will work with any Straight Talk phone regardless of the network it uses so you do not have to worry about that.

In my opinion, Straight Talk is a good choice for a prepaid provider. I came from Sprint contracted service to Straight Talk and haven't regretted it. In fact, I just had a problem with my phone not receiving data and I could not get it to work even after fiddling with the APN settings. I called Straight Talk and talked to two reps. The first one asked a lot of questions and then transferred me to another tech support person. The tech support guy was very patient and spent over a half-hour with me and finally figured out what I had done incorrectly. My phone is just out of warranty but still they spent almost an hour with me correcting the problem with hardly any wait at all before being connected with a rep. Yes, not what you normally read about Straight Talk's reputation for having "no service." Even though the reps are sometimes difficult to understand (support is outsourced), some of the reps are very patient and will repeat as many times as necessary if you are not understanding what they are saying. I had to have the guy repeat several settings and he kindly used "T as in Tom or A as in Adam" etc. until I understood what he was saying without getting indignant about it.

Great question. If your device breaks because of normal use or damage you have to buy a new one on your own.

If your phone malfunctions you would contact Straight Talk to replace it. Personally if this happened to me I'd buy a new phone that wait for this... Straight Talk phones are not so inexpensive.

I had the same thing happen to me. I just took my broken phone back to Walmart and they were more than happy to exchange it (this may vary by location) Then I got ahold of Straight Talk customer support and they were able to transfer my number as well as minutes to the new phone with not too much of a hassle.

Straight Talk service is available in 96% of the US and based on the zip code AND the cell phone you choose.

Models with "G" in the description are AT&T and T-Mobile. Models with "C" in the description are Verizon. Some phone models are Sprint. Pick your phone accordingly.

There are never roaming charges. Cost of local and long distance and calls to 60 countries are the same no matter where you are in the US. No other carrier offers that for $45 plus tax. And you get unlimited texting to US cell phones and unlimited internet.

Correction, the $45 card has unlimited long distance, the $30 card is different, once you use up your minutes, you're done until you buy a new card. But it doesn't matter where you call in the states, it's the same.
