A micro SD card is the standard memory card for all cell phones. The only difference in them is the size of the memory ex 4gig 8gig ect.

You have to 'activate' your phone before you can use it. It has to have a phone number assigned to it. If you have a number that you would like to 'port' over, then there are instructions during the activate to do that.

Not sure. The only activation card was the red activation card to activate the phone itself. You will still have to buy a $45 service card. The kit includes a phone, battery, and charger/ data cable for the mp3 feature, which is cool as you won't have to buy that extra to download songs.

Verizon network for Smart Phones

Is there any way of finding out when and if Straight Talk plans on coming out with a smart phone to be used on the Verizon Network?
My friends have trouble with other networks. Verizon ALWAYS works where I am.
Thanks!

Verizon does share their towers. I have a plan with Page Plus Wireless that uses verizon towers and phones. Granted their prices for plans arent as good as ST.

Verizon does have the largest coverage. With that in mind, there is currently no contract with any prepaid service (aside from their own), for 'sharing' their towers.
It's basically, Verizon, and everyone else. Everyone else shares their towers. Verizon does not.

Can I use an AT&T Blackberry on StraightTalk?

I have a Blackberry Curve I loved, but switched to StraightTalk.
If I can use my Blackberry, what network would it run on?

The LG and Samsung are CDMA phones natievly on sprint.

Your AT&T GSM SiM card won't work on StraightTalk.

Some ST phones are GSM and work on At&T but aren't Blackberries so you'll get voice if you buy a ST GSM phone and insert it into your obsolete AT&T blakcbery.
but not the email and web data

Question

Why buy straighttak phone vs virgin mobile

The same phone is available for both phones. They use the same sprint networks and the plans seem to be comparable (300 minutes a month, unlimited messaging and data (sorta) but the Straight talk plan costs $10 more per month.

What advantages does the straight talk network offer. Can you switch from one network to other?

Yes, they use the same service but read the small print... ST gives you "Unlimited minutes", messaging and data ... not just 300 minutes... all for $45 month... Best deal around !!!

And NO, you cannot "switch" services... that would be like trying to put an apple skin on an orange... 2 completely different things just as these are 2 completely different phone companies...

be careful with virgin mobile. i had them for a month and they charged me twice for my plan. and they were not going to give me the money back until the bank went after them for the money. i would take straight talk over virgin mobile any day of the week. the service is a lot better.

As explained to me by the Sprint store... It has to be a Sprint (pre-paid) tower... Not all of Sprint's towers will carry their pre-paid service....

The signal travels through the atmosphere. When you are too close to a transmit tower, the signal can go right over you. If you were in a city, you might get a signal that bounced (reflected) off of a building and back to you. But that bounce could also cause an echo in the call while you were talking. If you put a tower up that was as high as the tower antenna, you would get service. Of course, there is an FCC limit of 100 feet tall antennas. It's just an example. Raising your antenna wouldn't be a very practical solution.

International text messages to the available destinations are included in the Unlimited Plans on the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Precedent? (M828C) and LG Optimus Q? (L55C).

Text 011+ country code + city code + destination number. For example, 011+502+2+2541258.
