This is a cellular base station. Same as a cell phone but no display or keys. Your home telephone connects to it instead of a phone jack in the wall. It uses CDMA cell service which is Verizon or the like. ATT is TDMA.

answer 2
You don't need current home phone service for this system. You can use this system regardless of who your cell phone is with.
Straight Talk Home phones run off the signals that they purchase from Verizon tower network. Straight Talk does not have their own towers.

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.

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.
