It is a GSM phone and will only work with AT&T unless you get it unlocked, but then it will only work with GSM phones, like T-Mobile, AT&T etc. Not CDMA phones like Verizon, Sprint etc.

Sure, as long as all conditions are met, you will be given the option to "port" your current number when you activate the phone.

Keep your current service active and at the time you activate your new phone, be prepared to give Straight Talk your:

1. contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider including your ZIP code.

2. account number at your current provider

3. PIN or password to the account at your current provider

Sorry, I tried to answer your question but I guess it didn't quite meet your needs. :( At least I tried, right?

If you research on both phones by doing some searching around the internet, you'll be able to compare features of both and make a decision based on your own research.

Good luck!

No front camera on the Extreme.

I also looked at the Exceed which is a CDMA phone that is sold for use directly through Verizon Wireless prepaid service. It's not a Straight Talk phone but is sold by Walmart to be used directly through Verizon. It will use Verizon's native network and service will be directly through Verizon.

The extreme (this phone) is a phone to be used through Straight Talk on the AT&T's GSM network. It will primarily use AT&T's towers.

A few of the major differences between the Exceed and the Extreme from what I noticed by quickly comparing them are (and I'm not 100% positive that I'm correct):

Exceed has a dual-core processor running a 1.2 GHz while the Extreme has a 800 GHz processor.

Exceed has both a front and back camera while the Extreme only has a rear camera.

Exceed has Gorilla Glass where the Extreme does not.

There seem to be other upgrades on the Exceed as it appears to be a newer product but even though it may cost less, you will pay quite a bit more for service than you would by using the Extreme on Straight Talk.

They have a 6 month card for the $45 plan on the straight talk app so I say it should work as long as its the $45 6 month plan.

answer 2
Sure, jen, you can use the 90- 180- (or 365-day refills on the Straight Talk site).

You are just buying 6 refills in one card when you buy the 6-month (180-day) card.

In fact, I just looked at the face of the card and it says just that "The convenience of buying 6 x $45 Unlimited Plans in one card."

According to the published information, this phone is assigned to AT&T. Enter the zip code for areas that you plan to use the phone on walmart.com to determine if the phone will work in your area.

answer 2
No, this phone uses AT&T. The LG Optimus Showtime would be a phone with similar features that uses Verizon but it is out of stock at Walmart.

I believe the ZTE Majesty for $179.88 is a much better buy as it is upgraded in just about everything aspect. It has the Jelly Bean OP, a much faster (dual core!) processor, bigger screen, BOTH front and rear camera (rear camera with LED flash), etc. ...and it uses Verizon. A lot more bang for the buck, IMO.
