Yes You Can I Was With AT&T When I Switched To Straight Talk...When You Purchase Your Straight Talk Phone & Call & Set It Up They Give You The Opinion To Switch Your Current Phone Number To Your New Straight Talk Phone. Straight Talk Will Tell You It Can Take 24-48 Hours For Them To Switch Everything Over But Mine Was Switched Over In About 6 Hours...Just Carry Both Phones With You Just To Be Safe Until You Know It Is All Switched Over...Which Straight Talk Will Send You A Text Message Telling You, You Can Now Use Your Straight Talk Phone.

The phone doesn't have the application that tracks your minutes, so it can only work on the unlimited plan. Basically the same situation as an unlocked phone, but this one's locked so you can't use it on another service.

The obvious downside of that is that even if you are sparing in use you have to buy the expensive plan. The good part is that other phones are constantly annoying you with how many minutes you are using, even if it doesn't matter because you have the unlimited plan

Its falls under the label as a smartphone. So straightalk says that you have to have the unlimited plan in order for the phone to work.

The charger that comes with this phone is a wall charger with a Micro USB plug. It does not come with a detachable USB cable.

The company that I use for all of my cable supplies is Monoprice.com (I do not work for Monoprice, however, I am a very happy long-time customer). Here is the cable that you'd need: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=103&cp_id=10303&cs_id=1030307&p_id=5457&seq=1&format=2
and here is a backup charger: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10833&cs_id=1083311&p_id=7664&seq=1&format=2

The Nokia E5 does not work with the Verizon network, it uses the AT&T/T-Mobile towers through the Straight Talk virtual network since it is a GSM phone.

You can keep your existing number, though. Once you buy the phone, call customer service and let them know that you would "like to port your number" and they will assist you in getting your number changed over. It's a painless process that will take anywhere from a few hours to 2 days. As others have said, carry both phones with you until Straight Talk lets you know that your new phone is ready for use.
