For this particular phone, it requires one of the unlimited plans ($45 or $60 International). You can purchase them at Walmart or directly online or over the phone from Straight Talk.

You can also purchase them in multiples, i.e. 90- or 180-day plans from Walmart or Straight Talk. Straight Talk also has a 365-day multiple. Or, you can have Straight Talk automatically refill your plan.

No unfortunately Straighttalk will not work with Net10 or Tracphones even though they are the same company..
answered 8 months ago

answer 2
My understanding is that each TracFone subsidiary will have their own phones and plans and can't be interchanged with each other, i.e. Straight Talk phone have to be used with Straight Talk plans, Net10 phones have to be used with Net10 plans, TracFone phones have to be used with TracFone plans, etc.

I'd check with the BYOP website or call a ST rep on the phone to make sure.

Unfortunately, no. Straight Talk does not have provisions to prepay minutes. Currently, they only have plans that are of 30-day duration (or multiples thereof).

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.

Question

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

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.

answer 2
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:

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

It has both Google Navigation and Google Maps.

answer 2
This phone has a navigation app installed, but not showing on the main screen. You must re-install it via Blackberry World. It is similar to Google Maps on your computer.

The GPS system on this phone is not like the system on Android phones. It is quick to find your location and map a route, but does not do real-time location updating.

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.
