There is no transfer needed. Just log into your account online and update your account to reflect your new phone.

yes. You can transfer (or port) your number to any phone as long as its still active. Do not cancel service from present service until you port your number to new phone. Once you port your # it will no longer work with old phone

Very hard to find a case/cover for this model because of the slide-out QWERTY keyboard but they can be had... Try Amazon.com...

You can also browse the kiosks at your local shopping mall. They sells tons of phone covers and other accessories. Just present them with your phone and they do the rest to find the right cover. And you typically save more money then you would online.

Call activation number and they will help you or go online and you just put in the appropriate options. It can take a few days for the process to complete, but it worked fine for two different AT&T numbers I have tried in the past with no problems. I used the online method.

well, I'm going to try, due to the thousands of folks already doing it. That's a standard TOA, but i think if you keep it under 2gb and don't do p2p, you'll be fine. I do my downloads at work or hotspots via wi-fi, but at home, I'll just use my Android phone for e-mail and surfing, and tether up when I want/need to use my laptop. Bye bye $60 Comast monthly fees

Will it tether, yes... are you allowed to tether NO !!! ... It is in the ST Terms of Service that tethering is NOT allowed (whether you have the app or not)... ST monitors this VERY closely and if they catch you... you will be banned from their service forever... No kidding... and you will NOT get a refund... Read the small print !!!

Does this phone use verizon or sprint cell towers ?

I was told to buy the one with S 720 (c )Proclaim droid, the C was for verizon and G was for sprint. Can anyone tell me what the stock # is on this phone? I need a (c) for verizon towers.

Heres the deal. If you want Verozn towers, the straight talk phone must have CDMA on the face of the box! It is in the lower left hand corner of the box. If it doesn't show CDMA - it is not a verizon tower phone....period. I spoke to a couple of techs from Straight Talk and they are the ones who told me what to look for. Unfortunately, not many Walmart phones use Verizon towers any more.

Sprint, and only Sprint. The model number is LG55C. Despite the presence of the C, it is Sprint.

Well, the only person who would know the stock number is someone who works at walmart but the network is Sprint, which is why I am returning the phone so I hope that helps.

As the other person mentioned, international is $60 per month.

For a list of which countries are unlimited and which ones are not, go to the straight talk website and they have a list.

Has a 800 ghz SINGLE core processor (very low end) which is ARM v6... It will NOT load Google Earth or install Flash.... but still a good beginners phone... You'll find a lot of free apps that require at least ARM v7 before they will install.... I have this phone myself to take fishing and hunting... Very good call quality if you have good Sprint coverage...

This phone has an 800 MHz processor.

answer 3
It is NOT 1 ghz. My mother has this phone, and I have the Boost Mobile LG Marquee (which DOES have a 1 ghz). I got the boost to replace my own LG Optimus. And the Marquee is MUCH MUCH faster than this one. And it doesn't freeze up as much. So I cannot tell you exactly what it is, just to say it is slow enough to tell a real discernible difference between this phone and a true 1 ghz.

So in MY OPINION it is worth the few extra bucks to get a 1 ghz phone (I believe Samsung has a Straight Talk with 1 ghz) if you use aps or basically do anything but use the phone to just talk. Someone else might say they don't notice a difference. Like I said, just my opinion. Oh and plus, the newer phones which DO have 1 ghz generally have larger screens. This phone isn't much narrower than my Marquee, but my overall screen size is much larger. A good 1/2 " to 3/4 " (diagonally) which is a lot on a tiny phone.

Straight Talk is part of the TracFone Network (as is Net10) which means they use which ever tower is near you be it Sprint, T-Moble, At&T, Verizion, etc. It also varies by phone models as some phones are GSM (SIM card) & others are CDMA (no SIM card). This phone is a CDMA model.

This phone uses Sprint native coverage only ...no roaming. Make sure you have good Sprint coverage before ordering this phone.

Here's the native coverage map if you are interested (copy-and-paste);

Uncheck both the 4G boxes.
