Yes you can. The transfer might take a couple of hours but they will transfer from your old phone to the new one the exact same phone number. You will be able to use your old phone until it ports over to the new one.

Yes, if you currently have a Straight Talk phone and you are changing or upgrading phones, you can have your current number assigned to the new phone and have the remaining minutes on your plan shifted to the new phone.

Galaxy S series does not have a particular provider. It's who you purchase it under, which in this case is Straight Talk. Their towers usually run under Verizon's towers but now are also starting to you AT&T's towers as well. Usually depending on where you live, it's Verizon's towers.

I agree with LindyBugs that if you have a Straight Talk phone which uses the Verizon network that you will generally have great coverage traveling throughout the U.S.

However, to clarify a couple of things. This particular Straight talk phone uses the Sprint native network. The network a Straight Talk phone uses depends on the phone and not necessarily the location when using the phone. Straight Talk phones primarily use AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint with some limited T-mobile GSM SIMS.

If you have a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon, the phone will use Verizon no matter your location in the U.S. If your ST phone uses AT&T, the phone will use AT&T service no matter your location in the country. And, if your phone uses Sprint, as this one does, the phone will use Sprint towers no matter where you travel or your location in the U.S.

Also, the Family Plan that Walmart is offering is not a Straight Talk plan. It is called "Walmart Family Mobile" and will operate exclusively on the T-mobile network and generally use T-mobile branded phones. It will use Walmart Family Mobile plans and not Straight Talk plans. Straight Talk does not have "family plans" per se.

The Straight Talk network uses other phone towers, whatever ones you are near. I have found from others it mainly uses the Verizon towers on the regular Strait Talk network. However, they are now offering a Family Plan in my area (DFW) that you can choose that uses T-Mobile towers. I chose to stick to the regular original Straight Talk as I have never had trouble with reception even while traveling.

Sprint's native network. No roaming. However, this phone will have access to true 4G LTE.

Make sure you have good Sprint data coverage in the areas you plan to use the phone for as you probably know, Sprint's coverage is not as extensive as AT&T and Verizon and has spotty coverage in rural areas.

Sprint's native coverage map (copy-and-paste):

http://coverage.sprint.com/mycoverage.jsp?id=BO543STC

You can hone in on your address with this map. However, the map does not show all the new areas where Sprint has 4G LTE as they are continually updating the LTE service areas. They claim that they will have 4G LTE in place in all their 3G areas by the end of 2014 ...that may be a bit optimistic.

With all due respect to Community Answer, Estherwood shows excellent Sprint 4G LTE coverage. Again, go to the Sprint coverage map that I gave a link to in my previous post and it will be obvious. The I-10 corridor through Louisiana shows very good Sprint LTE coverage.

Bobby, the Straight Talk phone featured on this page, the Samsung Galaxy III S960L will use the Sprint native network.

This particular SIII is a true 4G LTE phone.

Straight Talk sells four versions of the SIII, 1) THIS phone, the S960L on Sprint, a true 4G LTE device, in White, 2) the S960L in Pebble Blue, 3) the S968C using Verizon but limited to 3G, in White, 4) the S968C using Verizon but limited to 3G in Pebble Blue.

You are actually in luck as this phone, the S960L in White, has access to Sprint 4G LTE in Estherwood and all the surrounding area.

Here is the Sprint coverage map where you can check your exact address (copy-and-paste):

http://coverage.sprint.com/mycoverage.jsp?id=BO543STC

Uncheck the 4G Wimax box as this phone will not have access to the less desirable WiMax.

The Straight Talk customer service number is 877-430-2355. Be patient as their call centers are outsourced and sometimes their reps are difficult to understand. Most are very helpful, however.

Actually, this particular phone, the S968C, is on Verizon. 3G only.

850/1900 MHZ - EVDO Rev. A

There is a Sprint version of this phone that Straight Talk is offering that is Sprint powered however. Its model number is S960L (or designated on the box as "LTE-S") and will be a true 4G LTE device.
