How to switch current plan to a new phone

I am interested in upgrading my current phone. What do I need to do to switch the plan to the new phone and can I keep my existing phone number? I do currently have the Straight Talk 45 plan. I need to know what to do before I purchase the new phone. Also, is there an upgrade discount at all??

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.

Re.free up your memory by clearing your history, My Game Applications keep crashing

How do I do this? "free up your memory by clearing your history each day"

Does any of the crashing have anything to do with just using the 4gb mini sd card.

Is there a certain amount of free space I need on my mini sd card to have all the features and apps work properly?

Ihave an 8gb mini card. I have crashing issues constantly. One of the problems that I feel they have is there are to many things that can not be stord on the sd card.

The apps crashing and freezing have nothing to do with the SDcard. They are coding problems, plain and simple. Feedback to the app creator on Google Play is the best solution. Tons of apps have tons of bugs in them.

Open app listings, close any non essential programs. The more you have running, the higher the chance that the processor will not be able to keep up. You can also clear out the ram by going to the ram tab, click clear memory.

Otherwise, I am not sure what else you can do. This phone is not top of the line.

After moving your apps to the SD card, did you delete them from the internal memory ?
I downloaded the user manual to my laptop, and then used the instructions to delete them from the internal memory on the phone.
No need to have the app in both places.

Internal memory on this phone is pathetic. Only 150mb. One thing you can try is to remove updates to Youtube and Maps to free up some more internal memory.

Nothing that you are doing. A smartphone is essentially a mini computer. Just like an actual computer things freeze. That is what is happening. You can advise the app creator by leaving them feedback on the Google Play rating system.

It is much like any other phone, you press the "Camera" option on the main screen. Once you scroll to the picture in the gallery that you want to post you press the "Share" option. It will provide a list of websites or email sites that one would use to share. You press the Facebook icon and enter your log in info and it will post on your FB page under mobile download pics.

Make sure you have the Facebook app installed. Take a picture...then open the gallery. Long hold on the picture, tap share...then tap Facebook.

It is as reliable as Verizon.
This phone uses Verizon Cell Towers.
Go to Verizon and check coverage in your area.
By the way, not all phones sold by Walmart are on Verizon, this one is though.
answered 2 years, 3 months ago

RipperJim
answer 2
Service is going to depend on how far you are from the towers, if there is interference at your home, and the like.

This phone runs on Verizon. Take a look at verizonwireless.com. Click on coverage maps on the left hand side. Put the dot in prepaid and refresh the map.

Now locate your general area. You can zoom in to take a closer look. If the area that you live in is shaded, then you should have service.

You can, but more than likely the video portion of Skype will not work as there is no front facing camera on this phone.
