1. The 18 month extended warranty program is through a company called NEW. You have to go through them for any warranty issues. There are instructions in the pamphlet that you must follow for the warranty to be affective. You must keep your receipt and be prepared to ship off your phone for repairs. Do not try to replace the phone through Wal-Mart because they are not responsible for the enforcement of the extended warranty. They only act as agents of the NEW company (which is under the Asurion umbrella) and sell their product.

2. Wal-Marts return policy for prepaid phones is 15 days. This policy was 30 days but changed around January of 2011. There are signs that are above electronics that state the 15 day return policy for prepaid cellphones. Also, in customer service, and in connection center. Now I am aware that some stores choose to not follow the correct policy for whatever reason, but I am here to tell you its 15 days. With a receipt by the way. If you get lucky at one store and get away with returning a product within 30 days just understand that not every store is aware or follows the companies policy. It is very confusing and I for one hope that people will get on the same page about the return policy. Anyways, I hope this helps.

You have 30 days from date of purchase to buy the 18 month protection plan. I asked at Walmart Wireless store. AND I read it in the protection plan description. Here it is, I will copy & paste:
"If you have the original Walmart product receipt, you can buy this Protection Plan to cover any eligible product up to 30 days after you've bought it."

As long as your current phone number is active, your the primary account holder, you know the account number, and the account password. Be warned though, prepaid to prepaid number ports can be complicated. In fact any number port can be complicated. Straight Talk customer service handles all of this for you. You will need to call on another phone to activate your straight talk phone.

Can the straight talk plan be added to our existing phones or do you have to buy new phones?

Depends on your phone. If it takes a sim card then you can buy and use a Straight Talk Sim card. Have you completed your 2 year committment with Verizon Wireless? Typically that is how people get their phones so cheap - it is financed through your service fees.

Unfortunately Straight Talk cannot be used on CDMA phones from the Verizon network. However, if you had either an unlocked GSM phone, or an AT&T or T-Mobile branded phone which uses a SIM card, Straight Talk sells SIM cards for $14.99 which can be used in those phones on their network.

You can buy a straight talk SIM card - I think for around $15 to replace the Verizon SIM card in the back of your phone. This allows you to use your current phone. Be sure to buy the correct SIM card for your phone. Go to straighttalk.com for more info. Hope this helps.

Are your phones GSM phones with a SIM Card? Verizon has been moving towards this as well as keeping their CDMA phones as well.

If they do have SIM cards and also unlocked, you can then buy Straight Talk SIM Cards to put in your current phones and use the Straight Talk plans.

If the phones are CDMA, then you will need to purchase Straight Talk phones I do believe to use their plans.

The speaker phone works fine, I can hear fine and people can hear me when I use it. It also has talk to text and voice dial features that are very nice. I would caution, however, that my phone occasionally loses connection on the receiving end... I can hear them, they cannot hear me. I will be returning mine for a new one to see if it is just a bad egg.

If you currently have an unlimited service plan then you can just transfer that number and service to the new phone and use the rest of your time, but if you have the $30 all you need plan then you will need to purchase a new unlimited service plan before activating your number on the new phone.
