There is no upgrade discount.

Purchase your new phone and call the Straight Talk (800) number.

Tell the CSR that you want to transfer your Straight Talk number to a new Straight Talk phone.

All you need to do is activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Walmart cannot do phone number transfers, only new activations for Straight Talk.

Click Activate >> Transfer Number
Put the dot in "Transfer My Straight Talk Service"
Go through all activation steps

Service time will transfer to this phone from what you have left.

Simple as pie to do. But sorry, there is no upgrade discount.

No you don't actually. You can browse through the phone on WiFi, make WiFi calls, and other things.

If you need a cellular phone number, then you will need to activate the device.

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).

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

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.

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.
