Yes, as long as your AT&T phone number is active, you are the primary account holder, you know the account number, and the security pass code. You need all of this criteria to be able to port your number over.

This version works on sprint towers, but straight talk has a sim card program that will support the ATT Fusion(same phone) which is also available at Walmart. You can buy the ATT gophone version and activate using straight talk service from Walmart. This gets you staight talk rate and support and may get you better coverage using ATT towers

This is a good phone which provides most of the same features of other Android phones in its class. It provides good performance for a reasonable price. If you have reasonable expectations, you will probably be happy with this phone. If you want the very latest most powerful device be prepared to spend a lot more.

Absolutely great phone! However, it uses Sprint towers. Be sure to check your area, as Sprint's coverage is not very good in many areas. At home, can barely make it through a call without it dropping. If I go 40 yards in any direction, it does extremely well.

The phone itself is my favorite, out of about 30 I've owned over the years. Does everything but cook your breakfast! (Probably will eventually have an app for that.)

I think it is a very good entry level android phone. It provides a lot of the features of an Iphone at one fourth the cost. It performs very well for a $100 phone. If you can afford $400 plus for a better phone buy it, but for most of us this is a good compromise and a great place to start.

It isn't a good phone at all. It has poor coverage and it is a poorly made phone. I would suggest getting the Straight Talk Samsung Proclaim if you get good Verizon coverage. If you don't get good Verizon coverage in your area try the Straight Talk ZTE Merit android phone. Its not the greatest of phones but its better than the Ascend 2 and it uses AT&T towers.

Good phone, great features, unlimited Android Apps from Google Play. Battery lasts fine, if you install an app manager (I use Advanced Task Killer - Free).

Only problem is that it's on the Sprint System. Search for "Boost Mobile Coverage Map". Boost is Sprint's pre-paid service. Sprint treats pre-paid differently that regular Sprint phones.

If Boost Mobile has good coverage in your area, the Ascent II will work fine. If coverage is poor, you'll need to choose another Android (suggest one on Verizon or ATT through StraightTalk).

Mine runs on Verizon (zip is 85625) & I would NOT have bought it if it did not have GPS! That would have been the deal-breaker for us. GPS actually works very well.
I like the phone a lot, even if it is Android & has a tendency to drain its battery, even after setting so it supposedly doesn't drain battery much!
