Sorry you didn't find the answer I gave helpful, brandy. However, I'm just the messenger. It wasn't my decision to have this phone run on Sprint towers. It was Straight Talk's decision. And no matter if either of us like it or not, it is what it is --this phone uses the Sprint native network.

Go to www.straighttalk.com and under the menu "Activate/Reactivate" there is an option to transfer a number. Click that and from there you can follow the prompts to see if your number can be transerred from another company. If you're already using straight talk any number can be transferred, but do it before the current plan runs out. So I'd say within the last day or two do you don't lose out on time on the old phone.

If you are currently on the Unlimited Plan, the transfer of your service will be seamless when you switch to a smartphone.

If you are on the 1,000 minute plan, you will lose any remaining balances and will have to start a new Unlimited Plan at the time of activation. Therefore, in this scenario, you might want to wait as close to your service end date as possible before making the switch.

Reminder, with a smartphone, you will be required to use one of the Unlimited Plans.

In either case mentioned, you will be able to keep your phone number.

If you go to the Straight Talk website, they will give you a list of countries that can be called using the International Plan. However, not all cities in those countries can be accessed. So Straight Talk included a destination check function where you can enter the country code, the city code, and the phone number and it will let you know if that number in that city is accessible on the plan.

Here is the list of countries:

For the interactive destination check, go to the middle of this page to enter the information:

Absolutely. It is only $50. Mine works great and I only use it as a tiny tablet computer.

You don't have to activate it if you aren't going to use it as a phone. It does a lot of stuff just over Wi-Fi networks. If yo buy it and don't liek it as a phone, you can always use it over your Wi-Fi network to do most anything regular tablet computers do.

It could be - just make sure you get good reception in your area. (Straight Talk phones all use different carriers.) It has come down a lot in price since I bought mine. (I gave it a bad review for battery life.) It's great for texting- not as good for some apps - and a little cranky sometimes. Remember to turn it completely off every day or so for a minute, just to reboot it.

I like Verizon too and have the Huawei Ascend Y.

It's a good phone even though it doesn't have the latest Android version I think it's still got a lot of features to make up for that.

This particular phone on Straight Talk uses the Sprint native network.

It used to be easier to tell what networks the Straight Talk phones on Walmart's website used as they coded them with whether they were GSM or CDMA phones. CDMA phones followed by a "V" were ones using the Verizon network and ones with an "S" were Sprint. GSM-A were AT&T.

However, now I see that Walmart is slowly removing those designations so they evidently want to hide what network they are on or at least make it more difficult to shop for one on a particular network.

A few ST smartphones that come immediately to mind that run on Verizon are:

Samsung Galaxy Proclaim @ $99.88
Samsung S738C Galaxy Centura @ $99.99
Huawei H881C @ $149.99
LG L86C Optimus Showtime @ $199.88

There are a few others but I'll leave others to suggest them as they are not coming immediately to my mind at the moment.
