From the FCC.gov site:
Under the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) “local number portability” (LNP) rules, so long as you remain in the same geographic area, you can switch telephone service providers, including interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, and keep your existing phone number.

You will need to imitated this when you purchase your phone and he work is preformed in the background amongst the telco company..
I ported a cell over to an existing Landline, so cell to cell is doable, as long as it meets the guidelines from the FCC.

It's a TracFone running on Sprint for StraightTalk. Doesn't that sound stupid? I have a Safelink TracFone that works great in my area. But this thing doesn't work at all in my area. Doesn't make sense, but if you look at the Android map on the StraightTalk website, you'll see that the Android doesn't work in more than 50% of the U.S.

No. You have to pay for the first month. Straight talk phones usually dont have minutes with them. You don't have to buy a plastic card though. they have a email card on the site that I use which is cool. They send you the pin codes that are usually on the card to your email in minutes after you buy it. it's really nice if you procrastinate like me on getting another card.

Yes. It has an app for email and gmail already on it. Its easy to set up. In fact I don't think I ever even put in a password or anything for the first time. It was already a step ahead of me. You only have to sign into facebook. It has an app on your home screen for that already as well.

Your store is misinformed. It is Sprint and Sprint Only. Go back to the store, look at the box. The last two things after the Model number will be ''-S", this means Sprint. Teach them something. Haha...

answer 2
I'm not sure how straight talk does it but I am assuming it works on the carrier that provides the best coverage in your area? The only reason I say this is because my straight talk service works off At&t because sprint and verizon do not provide good coverage where I live.

Im glad you ask about this question. I am a Walmart associate. The Samsung Galaxy Straight Talk phone runs on Sprint's Network. If you look on your Straight Talk box that has CDMA-S, that means its Sprint. If it has CDMA and no S, its Verzion.
