If you purchased the nationwide deal then your phone will work nationwide. These phones under straight talk, work on the verizon broadband so you shouldn't have a problem. If you go to the straight talk website, there will be a map that will show you all of the places where you WILL have issues getting service and you can pinpoint exactly where you will be dropping calls.

Yes. You can port your existing # over. If you do not have a contract with your other carrier, you do not have to continue to pay them.

Number portability is a law and almost a constitutional entitlement.
Some special conditions can prevent you from transferring your number which is your responsibility to determine.

answer 3
You should be able to port your number to Straight Talk. Your old carrier is required to release your number to a new provider as long as all requirements are met. This is by FCC mandate under the LNP rules.

Your old provider may charge you an early termination fee if you are under contract, however. Once you pay the ETF, no, you are not required to pay your old carrier monthly anymore.

If you are referring to buying the monthly service card--then I don't believe there is a penalty. However, during that time you may lose your phone number. But, once reconnected, you can get a new number.

answer 2
Yes, there is never a penalty as you are not under contract and are paying for service in advance (or pre-paying for service).

However, the big disadvantage is if you let service lapse, you "may" lose your phone number. The word "may" is the language Straight Talk uses in their T&C and what their reps continually remind you over the phone but from what I hear through the grapevine is that they usually will give you 30-days before you actually do forfeit the number.

If having the same number isn't important to you, there is no penalty for skipping months.

Btw, I use a Google Voice number with my Straight Talk phone so that's an option you might want to consider. I can use my Google Voice number to call out and ring my phone on incoming calls in addition to my Straight Talk number. If you use a GV number then it really doesn't matter if you lose your Straight Talk number.

1. enter *86.

You can also set up your voice mailbox from another phone by entering your 10-digit mobile number and following the same instructions.

2. Tap the Call button. If you hear a greeting, enter # to continue.

3. Follow the prompts to personalize your greeting and mailbox options.

Since this phone will use the Verizon Wireless voicemail system, you can view this tutorial if you get hung up (copy-and-paste):
