It does not come with any minutes. You must by a $45 card to use the phone. You can also purchase the service when you activate the phone. I purchased my 30 day service when I activated my phone on the straight talk website.

No it does not.

You will need a $45 Unlimited card for activation(can be purchased on the web at that time).

You can buy cases and screen protectors from Amazon, eBay, or maybe a local cell phone retailer. Amazon and eBay are probably your best bet though.

No you will have to replenish with the 45 dollar card. Use your old phone until it runs out and then activate your new phone. Better yet take it back and get a different phone. These phones are a pain in the butt

NO. YOU HAVE TO START WITH A $45. CARD.. IF YOU WAS
ALREADY ON A $45. PLAN YOU COULD SWITCH NOW...

answer 3
It would probably be best to wait until the day your $30 card runs out and then transfer your number and add a $45 card to this one.

I am not sure how Straight Talk handles phone upgrades from a feature phone to a smartphone. Doing it this way is safe and you really don't lose much but a few hours.

Yes, you can as long as your number is active. Here are the steps to take.

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 Huawei Ascend Y
