TraFone has a new program called BYOP(bring your own phone). As long as your phone is a CDMA(Verizon) and nothing else. But never hurts to call up Straight Talk which is a subsidiary to TracFone to find out.
Sorry we were of no help, Connie. The best advice if you want to use the phone you have and don't want to buy a new Straight Talk phone is to check the BYOP site that I mentioned in my first post to see if it is compatible to use at Straight Talk ...or call Straight Talk directly and ask them.
We can't do too much more here on this forum as your question does not give enough information to answer with certainty.
You have to have a straighttalk compatible phone. If you don't already have one then yes you would have to get a new phone, or by a used unlocked straight talk phone. Hope I was able to help!
CONNIE, some phones can be brought to Straight Talk with no problems. However, it will be difficult for us to give you a definite yes or no answer here as we don't know enough information about your phone.
What I suggest is you go to the Straight Talk BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) webpage and go through the process ...they will ask you some questions about the phone and ask for some identifying numbers, ZIP code where the phone will be used, etc.
Once completing the process, if your phone is compatible, they will give you instructions on how to activate and pay for service should you choose to use Straight Talk service. You will not be under any obligation to sign up just because you use the compatibility check.
If you have problems with the website or you just don't want to fool with it, you can always call a Straight Talk representative and ask them to tell you if your phone is compatible as they will ask you the same questions and give you the answer while you are on the phone with them.
