The user manual does address changing the language. However, unless you are fluent in German, I would think that you'd have to use translation as the instructions are printed in English.

I'm assuming you must know both German and English? If so, it should be easy to follow the directions given.

When they port my old number into Straight Talk, does that automatically cancel my existing service?

My experience was similar to PorgyTirebiter's. Only when I ported from Sprint and it was almost immediate. As soon as I noticed the porting process had been completed (it took less than 10-minutes even though they warned me it could take several hours), I logged into my Sprint account online and my phone account records had disappeared. I was appropriately charged by Sprint for the prorated amount I owed so it turned out to be a very trouble-free transaction on both sides, Straight Talk and Sprint.

You need to check the coverage map, which is provided via a link at the Straight Talk web site.

I just looked at both the AT&T coverage map and the Verizon coverage map for Berea and both have excellent coverage. Not enough of a difference to make a big difference IMO.

"Coverage" mainly is important pertaining to where YOU will use the phone. You can check the Verizon coverage by going to their interactive coverage map and putting in the addresses where you use the phone or want to use the phone and you can hone in and see how good the approximate coverage may be.

If you plan to travel a lot, most people think that Verizon has better coverage especially out in the western part of the country. But again, some places AT&T will have coverage where Verizon will not and vise versa.

Here is the Verizon coverage map (copy-and-paste):

http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/support/coverage-locator

Look only at "Prepaid" for voice coverage and "Data Coverage" for 3G data. You will not be able to receive 4G LTE with Straight Talk phones on Verizon so disregard the 4G LTE coverage.

Yes, you can transfer your Straight Talk number to new phone in just minutes, this is easiest of all to do. Just need to make sure you old phone has stopped working and suggest you remove battery and turn it off to make sure no delays in activating new phone. I've kept my number with 5 phones now
