answer 1
I tether it on weekends as I like to use my laptop to check a few sites and my e-mail. I don't stream etc. while tethered. I use 3G Watchdog app to monitor my usage to 1gb a month and less than 100mb a day. Allegedly ST allows 4gb a month which is quite a bit but I plan to stay less than 1`gb, and use the wi-fi at work and hotspots to download shows etc

Question

Does this phone use Verizon towers?

I was going to go with one of the Best Buy plans because people complain about Straight Talk's service and how you may be without a phone for months after you ship it to Mexico. The guy at Best Buy said he wouldn't recommend his plans because they use Sprint and Verizon is about the only choice in my area.

Straight talk works. You have to know what phone works in your area. Sprint is smallest network. Att verizon T-Mobile each have one or more phones on straight talk. You need to ask friends and family what works for them. Then buy that carrier on straight talk

THIS PHONE REQUIRES A $45 STRAIGHTTALK PREPAID CARD. YOU USE THIS CARD TO ACTIVATE THE PHONE. iT WILL NOT WORK WITH ANYTHING LESS. YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR AUTOMATIC REFILLING WHICH WILL DEBIT YOUR ACCOUNT $45 PER MONTH AND SAVE YOU THE HASSLE.

You have to buy the straight talk airtime card to use this or you can buy the airtime with a credit/debit online when you activate the phone. For this phone its required that you buy the $45.00 unlimited plan. Which is the best deal for a smartphone plan in my area.

I think they are one and the same. If you do not have an airtime card of $30 or $45 the phone can not be activated unless you have auto refill on your present phone.

answer 5
No. The Activation card is what comes in the box with the new phone.. The Card has the serial number of the phone on it with instructions.. It has to be scanned first, of course, at the register when you buy it. You just install the battery, snap on the back cover..start charging your phone then call Straight Talk to activate. You will still need to purchase a Straight Talk Card before calling to activate.

the activation card gives you the info you need to activate this phone. NO ITS NOT AIRTIME. I get my airtime off of ST's website with the auto-refill. Never have to go buy a card that way.

No it is not a airtime card. An activation card gives you the phones serial number that allows you to get the phone activated for the first time without having to find it on the phone or in the phone.

Your phone has to be out of contract and inservice when you port your number. It will automatically cancel your service with your old provider.

answer 3
When changing phones or phone companys I just call my new phone company and ask them to transfer my phone number to the new phone. If I am changing companys my old phone must still be active or the new company can not transfer the phone number. As soon as the phone number is transfered to the new phone the old phone goes dead. The same goes if you are changing phones to a newer phone in your present company. Just transfer the phone number to the new phone and the old one goes dead. I have done business with 3 companys and it was the same with all three companys, to transfer my old phone number to the new phone. Also make sure you cancel your service with the old company even if your told you don't have to & write down the date and time or chance paying a full month of service on your old company. Hope this helps you.

No. Do not cancel your old service. Go to www.straighttalk.com and you can transfer your number there. This website completely takes care of everything you need it to do. They end your current service and move your number to the new phone. When you get to the st website click on Activate/Reactivate and it will give you 3 options. The 1 you'll want is Activate my Straight Talk phone with a number transferred from another company.

Question

Can the phone "talk" to say who is calling vs. ringtone?

My current LG phone (an OLD flip phone VS8100) has a feature that I love, in that whatever I have programmed as the name for a number in my contacts, when anyone calls it will speak "Jane Doe mobile calling.......Jane Doe mobile calling" for example. Can this phone do that? And how do I make it do that?
