Unfortunately, Straight Talk's Terms and Conditions of Service prohibit using any of their smartphones as hotspots.

However, they are now offering a dedicated mifi hotspot for $79 plus your choice of a flexible data plan (copy-and-paste):

No, this is a CDMA phone, No Sim card!

answer 2
No, this phone is CDMA and uses the Verizon native network. In this configuration, it is incompatible with AT&T which uses GSM (using a SIM card).

Right, if you live in an area where AT&T is better, choose a Straight Talk phone that uses the AT&T network.

answer 1
The activation card is the little red card included in the box with any Straight Talk phone that you purchase with the serial number of the phone that you will need to activate it. The serial number is also inside
all phones under the battery; however, they are so small that you will need a magnifying glass to read. Straight Talk has just made it easier by including the card with the serial number on it.

answer 2
An activation card is a paper card that is enclosed in the packaging and provides instructions on how to activate the phone. It will also contain the numbers you are required to give to Straight Talk in order to activate the phone ...the MEID (serial number) , etc.

It DOES NOT provide service! If you are purchasing a new Straight Talk phone, you will need to purchase a service card or arrange paying for service at the time of activation in a separate transaction.

The phones do not come with plan cards included, you must purchase them separately.

answer 2
This particular phone will not come with service and you will have to purchase separately either a $45 or $60 (international) Unlimited plan before or at activation.

Brand new Straight Talk phones generally do not include service. Refurbished phones usually come with the first 30-days of service included.

We travel cross country, will this phone work everywhere Verizon does or just where I buy it?

answer 1
Yes it will work across the U.S. as long as there is a Verizon tower within range. Like any cell phone, reception will be best in or near cities/towns, will get weaker the farther away you get from them, and have dead zones in remote areas. Compare the coverage map to your travel route to predict whether you'll be able to pick up reception in a location. If you buy an International Plan, it will also work in other countries.

You will have nationwide service on the Verizon NATIVE network. That means that there is no roaming at all and in places that have no Verizon native coverage, you will not have service ...or put in another way, you will have service only where you are receiving a signal off a tower that Verizon owns. So yes, you will have service everywhere in the U.S. where there is Verizon native coverage.

By going to the Verizon coverage map, you can see where the native coverage will be nationwide. If you check the "Prepaid" button and click on the "Refresh Map" button, the native voice coverage will be all the areas shaded in purple. The gray shaded areas and areas in white, you will not have coverage. Same if you choose the "Data Coverage."

However, remember that you will only have 3G data coverage and will not be able to access 4G LTE with this phone and Straight Talk service.

Verizon coverage map (copy-and-paste) ...go to middle of the page:

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

BTW, many RVers and OTR truckers use Verizon as it is considered to have the best coverage when traveling especially in rural areas.
