YES -but- your "old" phone service carrier MUST still be used for this to happen.

Do not cancel your old service plan before you transfer your phone number

We had Verizon plans -- transferred our numbers to ST without any problems -- did this online -- back in July 2012.

Help! Can send picture texts but can't receive them!!

I actually like the LG 505C except not being able to receive pictures! There was no mention of this problem in description write-up. I presumed that because it has a camera that I would not have problems with pic texting. Anyone else having same problem?

I actually have this phone...

YES, the service days left --- show on the "Home" screen --- BUT to get the amount of talk, text, & data usage amounts --- you have to go online and click on the "check balance" at the top --- then it will send you a text with the usage info.

Hope this helps!

I couldn't find any cases where I live, so I ended up buying one on ebay shortly after I got the phone last spring. So far it's held up well.

I, myself, have had this ?

The stores don't seem to carry covers for the phones they sell - bummer, to say the least!

I have looked on Amazon.com and was directed to other companies but haven't ordered yet - don't like to deal with smaller companies not knowing what you might get into.

Also was told my local mall has them [at the kiosk places] but haven't checked them out yet.

If you are wanting "screen" protective covers - my WalMart store has them.

If you have a straight talk phone already, you can transfer your number from one straight talk phone to another, however if you have straight talk & switch to another company, you cannot keep your number. Someone I know just tried this the other day!

Yes.

You can transfer an active telephone number, easy to do. Go to www.straighttalk.com and select 'switch your number'.

The serial number of the phone is registered to a specific provider. I tried to get it mine changed to a different provider, but the answer was no.

Out of the box, this phone is meant to be used with Straight Talk.

Since this is a CDMA phone, it may or may not be able to be flashed to another carrier but Straight Talk intends it to be used with their service.

LG 505c... [which is NOT a "smartphone]

• CAN use the $30.00 card
• DOES work off [prepaid part] of Verizon towers
