no you are not charged an activation fee.
as soon as you do get another card call & activate it for free. you can also activate on line at straighttalk.com. its free to re-activate your phone

answer 3
No, there are never any activation fees, re-activation fees, cancellation fees, or any other extraneous fees with Straight Talk.

HOWEVER, you will lose your phone number if you let service lapse more than 30-days. Straight Talk currently does not have any provision to "park" a phone number.

Therefore, if you want to keep your phone number, you will have to use a third-party "park" service which would necessitate porting your number back and forth to that third party to store the number for you for a small fee.

OR

...be assigned a new phone number when you re-activate service.

Puffer, this particular phone (the one on THIS page), the S968C, will use the Verizon Wireless voice and 3G (EVDO Rev. A) network with NO access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

It is configured strictly for CDMA using Verizon and will not use AT&T towers at all.

Yes, I am already a Straight Talk customer and was able to upgrade my phone with no problem. It was very easy to upgrade and keep my own number. If you are switching from another carrier, you can take your number, but it may take a few days to port it to the new service.

This particular version of the SIII on Straight Talk uses Verizon -owned towers only (native coverage only, no roaming) and only with voice and EVDO 3G. It will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network.

However, other SIII versions on Straight Talk are on Sprint and AT&T and some unlocked GSM SIII phones can be using either AT&T or T-Mobile towers. It will all depend on what version you are using. But again, THIS phone, the S968C (the one featured on this page) will use Verizon.

I ordered a refurbished G3 from Straight Talk's website. They didn't say that it wouldn't work with Verizon towers. After multiple calls and 3 weeks with terrible service, I discovered that the S970L only works with Sprint towers and that I needed an S968C that works with Verizon towers. In my area it's predominately Verizon with little Sprint service. I had to send it back and I'm currently waiting to get a credit on my charge card. I went to my local Walmart and bought a new one and it's working great now.

they have phones that work on Verizon, ATT you have to request which one. But I would go with a Verizon pre paid plan as Straight talk customer service is the worst. And if you phone ever fails under warranty and they do not have that model in stock the will send a cheaper model in replacemnt

KayKay, there are several different versions of the SIII on Straight Talk each using different carriers/networks. However, the SIII featured on THIS page, the S968C, will in fact use Verizon for voice and 3G data.

This phone will not have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network and will only have "native" Verizon Wireless coverage meaning that the phone will not roam but use only Verizon-owned towers.
