It's $45 to try it for 30 days, is how I look at this unit.

If you don't like it simply return it to Walmart within 30 days and they refund the cost of the phone. When you activate it the first time just accept a random telephone number. If you like it you can port your current cell # at a later time and there's no fee to do that.

Seems like a hassle? Come on.... fire alarms at 3am in high rises are a hassle but it's the best system in the world.

No contract, no one bugging you to stay if you don't like it. That's a deal.

I say that it is. In the long run, it is actually not that much money compared to other phones and other services. If you are looking for a smartphone, then this is the way to go. Straighttalk services already pay for themselves within a month, and if you do the extended plans, you save a bit of money per month as well. I love this phone, and I love this service. Just check on Sprint's website to see how their service is in your area.

Yes.

When you get your Galaxy go to www.straighttalk.com and on the menu select Support, then select PHONE UPGRADE. If you're on the $30 plan now you will be required to enter a PIN for a $45 plan or start auto-refill with your credit card #. The process will transfer you telephone #.

If you have doubts you should call Customer Service from ANOTHER PHONE than the one you currently use. When the transfer your # it will deactivate your current phone, that's why you need to use another phone to call them.

OK... listen folks... It says "free roaming" because of the fact this phone DOES NOT ROAM" !!! It uses ONLY Sprints pre-paid towers and nothing else... To find the best maps (don't use Sprints website) but go to Virginmobileusa and look at their map. They use the VERY same towers as this phone.... Spint PRE-PAID towers only !!!!

Its free. Since you buy a card at a time they can't charge you more. It says the same thing for my house, and I've found that there are certain spots I get a little service in, but its still sketchy and I usually don't even try to use it there. Roaming really takes a lot of battery power.

There are two plans, $30 and $45. That's it. There are no other fees, like roaming.

You pay a flat price every 30 days (not monthly) and you get exactly what you pay for.

$30 is for nationwide 1000/1000/30mb of anytime (inbound/outbound/mobile-to-mobile) minutes, 1000 texts, and 30mb of mobile web.

$45 is unlimted nationwide.

If you still have your booklet that came with the phone, inside will be the model of the phone. If not, when you turn off your phone and turn it back on, it will tell you what it is. This phone is a sch-m828c. Just go on the internet or onto the Samsung website and type in the model number. You should be able to find it that way.

You should be able to verify coverage on the ST site with your zip code. Take a close look at the map though as android coverage is much smaller than regular voice coverage.

No. It is supported by Sprint Network. BUT, if you look at the coverage area for Sprint as compared to Verizon, there isn't much difference. It really depends on where you are located. My son has Sprint in IA/IL boonies and his works fine there and when here in FL. That is all we care about for our families. I have had Verizon for years, years, and years and am about to purchase this phone. My bills need to be lowered and I like the Android phone. We will see how it goes as far as the phones functionality. Will keep you posted.

Only the phones that say they run on the cdma network are verizon. All the android phones use sprint and the rest use at&t. They also have some kind ofdeal with t-mobile for family plans, but I am unfamiliar with it. Also now if you own a phone that uses a sim card the straighttalk site sells sim cards to switch them to straight talk.

I called the 611 number and was told Nokia 6790, Samsung T404G, Nokia E5, and LG 900G. Also, the new LG 505C, but I don't think that's a smartphone. I'm looking at getting an unlocked GSM and buying the $15 SIMM for it. We had the galaxy, which runs on sprint, and it was horrible.
