As far as I know, depending on the carrier, you can keep your old number when you transfer to this phone and have the Straight Talk provider

answer 2
Yes you can, your previous phone has to be active at the time you transfer your number and you will need to call your previous provider to get your password and pin as its required by straight talk in order to transfer your number over.
answered 2 years, 8 months ago

answer 3
Yes, you can. Your current number must be an active number. Here are the steps to take.

If current carrier is other than Straight Talk:

1) Call your current provider and get your account and pin numbers. This includes Net10 and Tracfone services. These are required to port your number to Straight Talk
2) Activate this phone on the website with this option ticked - Transfer number from another carrier.
3) You will need a service card for activation. This can be done at that time so no worry there
4) After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full functioning phone within an hour 99% of the time
5) Enjoy your new Samsung Galaxy Proclaim

If your current carrier is Straight Talk:

1) Activate on the web with this option ticked - Transfer my Straight Talk service
2) Service days left will transfer as well as your phone number
3) See step 4 and 5 above

Question

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

We have fairly new phones from Verizon and we are wondering if we could add the straight talk plan to them instead of buying phones from Wal-Mart.

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.

Straight Talk don't allow roaming so there will not be a charge to worry about.

If you own the Straight Talk galaxy Proclaim and getting a roaming warning i would suggest to try re activate your phone by dialing *22890 on your phone if this doesn't work your going to need tech support.

Phone at: 1-877-430-CELL (2355)
Email at: custsrv@straighttalk.com

I have read a few people had trouble after activating there phones always shows roaming is why i suggested the above.
