Yes, I was able to keep my existing phone number. The number you port to your new Straight Talk phone MUST still be active, and you will need to have your account number.

No, it does not come with minutes. You must buy minutes or one of their $30 or $45 plans. But those don't require you to have a contract.

No minutes are included with the phone purchase - you would need to purchase one of Straight Talk plans.

That depends of where you purchase it. If you purchase it from Walmart it doesn't come with minutes. If you purchase it from the Straight Talk website, all of their phones come bundled with a month of minutes (you chose the plan). You must purchase the two together. This is why I purchased my phone from Walmart. I only needed the phone as I already had my plan/mins in place.

It will accept a voice command, if you say "texting" it sends you to a text input screen. By the same token you can also ask it to dial a contact, by voice, and several other options; call to name or group, or say number to dial.

Yes, it does. Look under Tools and you will see Voice Command. Voice/sound recorder is just what it sounds like. You can made a recording of your voice like for a note or maybe a grocery list or perhaps record a sound like baby's first word.
