Question

can i plug my dial up internet in to it?

answer 1
Okay, I see what you're saying. Try plugging a modem in so you can get dialup after canceling the landline? Well, that would be surfing over cellular for no extra charge. This from Straight Talk:

"Data service is not available with Straight Talk Home Wireless. Straight Talk Home Wireless is not compatible with home security systems, fax machines, DVR services, credit card machines, medical alert services or High Speed or
DSL Internet services."

As far as I've read, this isn't compatible with data transfer, even fax. But not sure why you'd want to plug your dialup into it. The general idea of this is to be able to get rid of the landline (assuming one doesn't mind not having full 911 tracking). It makes more economic sense for those getting internet via cable (or possibly DSL if the phone company doesn't charge more for it when local phone service is dropped).

No activation fee

answer 2
There is no activation fee just the 15.00 or 30.00 international phone card. Which ever one you need for your service needs every month. You can port your old phone number or they will give you a new number. I ported my old phone number it did take 4 days to port. If you plan to port do no cancel your old service it needs to be active for them to port that number. While you wait for it to port you can keep using your old service. As soon as your old service stops working you just plug into straight talk wireless home phone.

It is a cell phone base station in a box. You can hook your home phone to it and make calls. Has nothing to do with plugging into the phone jacks in your walls.

answer 2
It's a wireless system without a contract. You do not need a present land line to make work.

No, it does not need or use the old phone line line jack. You phone plugs into the back of the Base unit.

Caller ID shows only the number, same as a cellphone. The only way to have name come up with the number is to program a name and number into your contacts, again just like a cell phone. Most cordless home phones now have the capabilities of programming a list of contact names and numbers.
