Unfortunately, no. You will be paying for 30 consecutive days of service ...the operative word is "consecutive."

Straight Talk does not keep track of what days the service is used. It just sets a service "end date" which is 30-days from payment or activation of the service card.

But, Stephanie, the cost for that 30 days of consecutive service is only $15 so you're getting a bargain to begin with :p

Yes, keep it connected and don't use it or use it for any time you want then take a "vacation" or whatever.

If it were me, I'd keep it plugged in (powered up) just in case the "mother ship" wants to download an update or something.

No, 30 days at a time, then you will need to pay again or set an auto payment. Your choice..

I agree with others that you should have no problem on Vashon Island with this device. I'm originally from the Puget Sound area and all of King, Pierce, and Kitsap counties have very strong and extensive Verizon Wireless coverage.

Yes, as long as you have cell phone service there. Being so close to major metropolitan area, I can't imagine why not.

Go to top of page and enter your zip code to check.

It is my understanding that this unit uses Verizon's cell phone network. If you have good signal from Verizon, I would think that it will work.

In most cases, yes. There are, however, several smaller land line telephone companies that you may have trouble "porting" a number because of technicalities in interpretation of the FCC number portability rules.

Land line numbers sometimes will take longer to port than cellular numbers, however.

does it have caller id and call waiting

answer 1
ST plans have local and long distance calling, voicemail, caller ID, 3-way calling, call waiting, call forwarding, E911 and 411 at no extra cost.

The caller ID is only the number, no name, but we get names from our phonebook entries. WE use those names plus a distinctive ring for to identify, without looking, that the caller is someone we want to answer the phone for.

Not sure if ST will ever upgrade the caller ID to include all names, but if so, it can be done with an upload to each ST box.

No. You get through your telephones and answering systems only. This only provides the wireless system to use a home telephone.

The ST Home Phone uses Verizon, for one, but I think they use, as they advertise, "The Best Networks" (plural). That may be why they also advertise "Get 99.6% coverage on America's largest, most dependable networks"... also plural.

My voice mail doesn't pick up within the 4 rings I have my own answering machine set for but I can't remember if I set it for 7 rings or if that's just a default. I notice now that I have my Voice Mail set up, I can't find an option to change the number of rings.

This is something you prob. need to call their help line and ask.
