Question

Where can you find both a car charger and a case/cover for this phone?

I have no idea what type to buy that will fit this phone, and can you recommend a physical store to find these items at fairly inexpensive? Just got this phone & it is our first smartphone (we are older adults, lol) and would like to buy these items in a store instead of ordering online, as we are going out of town and really need it before we leave, therefore can not wait to have items shipped. Can someone help a newby to these type of phones. Like what kind do u know model # for a car charger that fits this phone and what to look for when I am looking for a case for it. Will there be a name or model number on pkg stating it fits my phone? Where is the best store to buy these at, not online.

Question

This is what I was Told Re: Which Towers ST Phones Use, Is This Correct?

This is what I was told via tomshardware.com:

"I use the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and yes it's on verizon towers. When you look at straighttalk.com put in a zip of a area that ONLY verizon works in that area like Spring City, TN 37381. If it has a "C" in the model number it's verizon or if it's an android it will have a RED verizon map. The blue maps are ATT. Hope this helps."

Now I do not know what to think......Any Help ????

It's kind of a generalized statement.

The "C" at the end of a smartphone model number designated CDMA which can be both Verizon or Sprint. When Straight Talk had few smartphones in their offerings, the "C" designation did mean Verizon as all their feature phones with the "C" designation did use Verizon. However, that is now a bit outdated as Straight Talk smartphones that have the "C" can now be either Verizon or Sprint.

The "G" designation which designates GSM, now can be either AT&T or T-Mobile. However, the vast majority of Straight Talk phones with the "G" designation use AT&T. Very few use T-Mobile out of the box. However, several of the newer GSM phones will use T-Mobile such as the Galaxy S4.

The red and blue maps are a bit outdated too. Generally, yes, the red map means Verizon but the blue maps could mean everything else, including Sprint, AT&T, or T-Mobile.

In the refurbished page for this phone, GulfGolfer52 (is this you?) has posted a nice list of what networks phones use:

Unfortunately, no. For one, this phone is CDMA and uses the Sprint network so does not require a SIM card. The other reason is that when one purchases a phone from Straight Talk, they agree to use it with a Straight Talk plan as per the Terms and Conditions of Service and it also state such on the box. The phones Straight Talk sells are essentially "locked" to Straight Talk.

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.

Would I be able to transfer my number from my Safe Link supplied phone?

I am 83 years old and on a limited income and therefor Safe Link has suppled me with an LG phone and 250 minutes a month. But the phone is so small and numbers are difficult for me to use.

I would contact Safe Link & see if you can buy a better phone through them & keep your free service. You can transfer your number to this Straight Talk phone but you would lose your Safe Link minutes, then have to buy your new minutes from Straight Talk.

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.

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.

The "Activation Card" does not provide any service. It is a paper card that comes inside the box that provides step-by-step instructions on how to activate the phone and will include any numbers you need to identify the phone to Straight Talk when activating, MEID (serial number), etc.

So, yes, you will have to purchase a $45 service card either before or during activation in order to have service.
