It's almost impossible for us to give you a definite yes or no here as to whether your phone is compatible with Straight Talk CDMA service. More details are needed about the phone and the network it has used.

The best way to go about confirming if your phone will work is to go to the Straight Talk BYOP website and follow through by putting your phone's information and navigating through the process. If your phone turns out to be compatible, it will then give you step-by-step instructions on how to active and start service.

If you have problems navigating the BYOP webpage, you can always call Straight Talk and ask them directly. Call 877-430-2355

Yes it will work with iPhone 4s. You get the SIM card in the kit and you don't need the CDMA activation code. That (activation code) is needed for phones such as Sprint that does not use SIM cards.

it depends on the company your coming from if they release the number,no im not a str8 talk or walmart rep but i do flashing and number ports in ruckersville va everyday so if its a new account that been shut off for non payment..chances are no if its out of contracts and good standing then most likely,if its in contract but still working maybe but you will more likely get the early termination fees applied which ruin your credit which ruin your chances of ever getting another phone other then pre paid.

Does straight talk have there own phone towers or do they get there signal from verizon towers

Straight Talk is a re-seller of the carrier signal provided by other carriers. Different phones work with different carrier's towers.
answered 1 month ago
By

answer 2
StraightTalk contracts from the other cellphone providers. ST also sells by zip code so they know what towers are in your area. At Walmart if you look at the bottom left corner of the box you will see a letter code.

CDMA-V = Verizon
GSM = ATT
CDMA-S = Sprint

I believe they added a few others like T-mobile but I'm not sure of that code yet. Probably CDMA-T.

You can go to Walmart and they might have all one carrier code. Go to the next Walmart 30 miles away and they have a different code or two. So make sure you buy one in your area.

If you buy a phone off the ST website the phones with the red map beside them are Verizon. Many times the website offers a free refurbished phone with the purchase of a card. Offers change every month. I kept watching and eventually got a free refurbished Samsung Proclaim.

Almost every CDMA phone now can be transferred to ST and put on the Verizon network if you want to buy somewhere like ebay. But all outside phones are put on the $45 plan regardless if they are a basic phone or smart phone. I hope that helps!
