No.

There is no rollover with Straight Talk phones.

If you need rollover minutes you can buy this same model at NET10 or the Tracfone websites. Nice phone and I have the Tracfone "triple minutes" version with rollover.

Software controls on this phone are NOT easy to use or intuitive. I think that even the cellphone tech in Walmart would have a difficult time making things work for you. Buy a plain cellphone or move up to a smartphone. Avoid this cellphone.

I don't think they will help you set up a Straight Talk phone. Since you have to have an email account to set up a Straight Talk phone.

I would go to the Straight Talk website and explore the site a little so you can figure out how to set up your phone yourself.

You will also need to go to the Straight Talk site to figure out how to use this phone. There are detailed step by step tutorials that will show you exactly what buttons you need to push to perform a function.
The instructions that come with this phone are very basic. They do not tell you how to do much more than how to install the battery, make a call, send a text message and set up your wifi.

Depends upon what zip code you live/work in.....call the techs at ST..they may be able to tell you more...I got a phone at a WalMart store in my zip...BUT it was on a Verizon plan and those towers are NOT in may area..hence, I got only 0-1 bars of strength....if you go to the ST website..."shop" phones...you HAVE to enter your ZIP CODE..IF this phone comes up...then it will work in your are..

YES! It is easy to "port" over your current cell number...make sure you have paid off your present carrier..once you "port" the number over, it makes it difficult to access your previous carriers website...

In most cases you HAVE to call tech support...they are in another country..BUT very helpful...in almost every call to them..the solved any issues with -in minutes!!

You can transfer an active telephone number, easy to do.

If your telephone # is inactive you'll be given a random telephone # based on your zip code.

With the Straighttalk international plan you can make calls out of the US. But, in my other reviews I recommend you avoid this phone due to it's small screen and non-intuitive software.

To check if your international destination is available text the

to 47787

To change the alert type (vibration/sound) and ringtone Select "Menu" then "Settings" then "Sound Profile." You should then go to the profile you want to use (probably "Normal") and select "Edit." You should now see all the settings you may wish to change separated into 3 tabs: "Call" "Message" and "Phone." To change alerts for text, go to "Message."
