Straightalk is unlimited internet, texting and phone minutes for the $45 dollars a month. You have to buy a new card each month or enroll in auto pay with Straightalk.

There is no limit to internet usage within reason. I have heard of people learning how to hack the phones and tethering them to laptops for downloading and service has been cancelled for that.

According to Wikipedia, Straight Talk is a Mobile Virtual Network operator (MVNO) offering both CDMA and GSM support. The CDMA side of the network uses Verizon's or Sprint's CDMA 1xRTT wireless networks, which was introduced in 2001 and is said to deliver between 40 and 60 kb/s to customers,[8] while the GSM side makes use of either T-Mobile's or AT&T's GSM networks.

Straight Talk runs on verizon towers, but that is it. It has no other affiliation with any other company.

All my research points to this being served on the AT&T network. I have seen nothing to make me believe otherwise. This phone matches the published coverage of AT&T as well as the coverage of friends who also have AT&T.

The terms of service are not monthly, it is based on days of service, from the point of activation. For example a 30 day card activated on Feb 1 where Feb has 28 days will expire on March 2nd.

Yes. You can wait to activate it. You don't have to use the phone card till ready to activate.

sure but why? Monthly unlimited? I don't use my phone that much. I pay 100 every 6 months and now will be paying that much every year and with 1000 minutes I'll have plenty left over. If your a texter or a yacker you might come out.
answered 2 years, 9 months ago

answer 4
Yes.

With Straight Talk plans and phones you can activate whenever you like. For example, if you wish to give this as a gift in December you can do that.

Straight Talk plans are 30-days (not monthly). To keep the telephone service active you must keep buying plans. You could give a credit card for convenient 'auto-refill' continuous service (that's my preference). If you don't have a credit card you could use the 'Reserve' feature that lets you add a plan that activates automatically. Or you could manually add a plan on day-30.

I reassure you that if you buy the phone and plan today you will have no trouble activating service one, two, or three months, etc., into the future.

No.

You may not remove the SIM, as stated in the Terms and Conditions section 14:

"Some Straight Talk wireless phones have SIM cards. If your Straight Talk phone has a SIM card, then you agree to safeguard your SIM card and not to allow any unauthorized person to use your SIM card. You agree not to, and not to allow any other person to, directly or indirectly alter, bypass, copy, deactivate, remove, reverse-engineer or otherwise circumvent or reproduce the encoded information stored on, or the encryption mechanisms of, your SIM card. You may not remove your SIM card or use the SIM card on any other wireless phone. Any violation of the restrictions on the use of your SIM card that are contained in this section may result in the immediate termination of your service without notice. The Carriers, TracFone Wireless, or its service providers, may, from time to time, remotely update or change the encoded information on your SIM card."

Please see straight talks terms of service. If you do not refill your Straight Talk account by your Service End Date, your Straight Talk phone number may be lost.

You'll lose your number after 30 days. Might get lucky but 30 days is the offical answer. Try NOT to do the monthly, it's expensive. Do a 6 month or an annual for 99.99. It's the least expensive way to work it.
20 a month = $120 year
30 a month = $180 a year
Or $99.99 a year.... hmmmmm.

Yes.

If you do not keep your phone active by adding a plan every 30-days then you will lose your number.

Some numbers can be transferred depending on the carrier and your current service plan. Please contact straight talk at 1-877-430-CELL (2355) to see if your number is eligible for transfer.

answer 2
The technically correct answer is yes. The truth? Maybe you can, maybe you can't. It depends on the whim of the Provider's computer system which in the case of the Net10, Tracfone, Straight talk family of providers is questionable. I have succeded once and failed once. So, toss a coin. It will depend on your zipcode from what I could tell when my failed attempt went south.

Yes.

As long as your telephone # is active on another phone you can transfer that number to your new phone. You'll have the option during activation.
