This phone runs on Verizon.

I did a quick check at straighttalk.com and saw another Verizon android that is available for you according to the zipcode you gave.

So yes, this phone will work 100% for you.

Nevermind any negative votes you see on my postings as I have a stalker that follows me around on this site.

Question

If I leave Straight Talk to go back to a contract plan can I keep my number? I don't want to lose it.

If I switch from my current account it looks like I can keep my current number. I have had it for 12yrs. If I then switch away from Smart Talk at a later date would I lose my old number?

As long as your current service is active, you can "port"/move your old number to any new carrier. The number must be active!

Yes you can. Straight Talk should allow number porting to another carrier, just as they will port numbers onto their service.

I am not sure if it works in your zip code, but if Verizon has coverage there, it will work, as this phone utilizes Verizon towers. As far as keeping your number, you can and it is called porting. During activation online, you can choose to get a new number, or port your old one. When I ported mine, it was released within a few minutes. Some carriers have been known to drag their feet releasing your number and could take up to 48 hours. The number that you port must also be an active working number, so make sure you don't cancel your current phone until the number has successfully been ported!

answer 2
If you get Verizon there, then yes it will.

And you can port your number also. Just follow these directions:

1) Call your current provider and get your account and pin numbers.
2) Activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Click Activate, then transfer number. Put the dot in Activate my Straight Talk Service with a number from another company. Be sure to use the exact same account information(name, address, etc).
3) You will need a service card for activation. This can be done at activation. This phone will only use the $45 Unlimited or the $60 International Unlimited.
4) After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full functioning phone within an hour or two 99% of the time
5) Enjoy your new Samsung Galaxy S Showcase

This phone uses Verizon Networks, which is CDMA. The phone is locked to that carrier. Since it is a CDMA phone and not a GSM, it does not use a SIM card.

No you can't. This phone does not use a sim card. It runs on Verizon's CDMA network.
