It seems that there is no longer an absolute manner in which to tell what network is used for a Straight Talk phone on Walmart's website.

If you are in a Walmart store that has a display showing the box that the phone comes in, you can look at the lower left corner on the front of the box and and in a small rectangular box, it will be coded as either:

"GSM-A" for AT&T
"CDMA-V for Verizon
"CDMA-C for Sprint
"GSM" for either AT&T or T-mobile
"LTE" for Sprint 4G LTE on the Samsung Galaxy SIII

See this photo for an example ...this one is for this specific phone (copy-and-paste):

http://fone-review.typepad.com/.a/6a00e553adf1538834014e8b6508a3970d-popup

Walmart used to have those same codes on their website title to most of the ST phones but has recently removed them. Now, it is hit and miss to determine the network. A model number ending in "G" is usually AT&T, and ones endng in "C" are either Verizon or Sprint.

The only other way is to search through these "Customer Q&A Exchange" for each phone and invariably, somebody has asked which network the phone uses. However, you may have some varying answers so that isn't foolproof either.

The two other ways would be to 1) actually call Straight Talk and ask ...again, however, I've heard from others that the reps sometimes are not sure or give the wrong answer, and 2) go on the internet and to research and/or read reviews for the specific phone.

For an example how I know that this phone uses Sprint is that I found a review of the device when it first came on the market by doing a search:

Question

Does it come with the $45 minutes?

For the $49.96 price, does that include the $45.00 unlimited Straight Talk card?
So technically, the phone is then $4.96 not including the unlimited Straight Talk card?

yes it comes with a $45 card but just FYI before purchasing this go onto Straight Talk.com because they have several phones that come free when you purchase the $45 plan, right now I just got a free Galaxy Proclaim that runs on Verizon network which is better than Sprint (this phone uses Sprints network).

No it is Sprint, so make sure they cover your area, and look it up yourself on Google don't trust Walmart's little see if the phone works in your area app. It worked great for me and I live in North Central IN. But not everyone was so lucky by looking at the reviews.

No it runs on the Sprint Network, in which if you do not live in a big city it doesn't pick up half the time. ATT and Verizon are much better networks.

My suggestion is to take them back to walmart tell them they are not staying charged and get your money back. The only way they will accept them back is if they are not working properly, they say thats the only way straight talk will reimburse them. Good luck.

answer 5
In most cases, yes. During activation, you will be asked if you want to "port" your number to Straight Talk.

Be sure not to cancel service with your current provider before activating with Straight Talk. Active service is a requirement for porting.

Also, be prepared to give Straight Talk the following information at the time you activate your phone if you wish to port your number:

1. your contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider including the ZIP code

2. your account number with your current provider

3. the PIN and/or password to your account
