Question

roaming?

So you were saying the phone will only work in the area you activated it in. If that's so why does the st card say "Unlimited minutes and texts nationwide" and further down "No long distance or roaming charges"?

(clarification to my previous post: My understanding is that Verizon Wireless Prepaid customers can have some roaming if paying an extra fee in advance. Straight Talk customers on Verizon have NO option at all to roam. Therefore, if you were to take a Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone to Alaska that operates on a Verizon Prepaid plan, you could pay extra to roam on some CDMA networks in Alaska. A Straight Talk phone using Verizon <this phone> will not work at all in Alaska. My understanding only.)

maddog10, I hope it wasn't me who gave you that impression.

The phone will work ANYWHERE in the U.S. where there is Verizon Wireless "native" coverage. It does not matter where you activate the phone, where you purchase the phone, nor where you live.

The phone will use Verizon for the life of the phone while it is on Straight Talk service no matter where you travel in the country (where there is Verizon coverage ...no Alaska service as there is no "native" Verizon coverage in AK).

"Native" is defined as coverage only where Verizon owns the towers so in other words, there is NO roaming on other networks. The phone will have the exact same coverage as a Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone as Verizon's own prepaid customers will not have roaming privileges either; only their contracted customers have roaming privileges.

So yes, there are "no roaming charges" because the phone will NOT roam ...therefore, no roaming charges.

Yes, you will have free unlimited long distance and texting to any state in the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. It's just that when you are in Alaska, there will not be coverage. Hawaii has good Verizon coverage, however.

I have no clue why they say that, I've had a straight talk phone for years...those they've told me won't work in my area.. I buy what I like and pay the same amount every month. I've never had additional charges and my phones have been to Florida, Oklahoma and Maryland .

Unfortunately, no. Phones on Straight Talk plans and the phones that Straight Talk sells only operate in the U.S. with no international roaming privileges at all.

Plus, this phone is locked to Straight Talk using Verizon CDMA and does not use a SIM card. In most countries, their dominant cellular networks are GSM where their phones require SIM cards.

If you travel frequently and want to use the same phone while out of the country and use Straight Talk while in the U.S., choose an unlocked GSM phone that uses a SIM card where you can change out the SIM card when traveling to get service in other countries.

Walmart has a nice selection of unlocked GSM phones to choose from online. If used with Straight Talk, you'd be required to purchase a SIM card kit at $7 from Straight Talk that uses either the AT&T network or the T-Mobile network, your choice.

answer 3
Carl, yes, you do have to purchase a plan and are required to pay at least 30-days in advance.

This phone requires one of the Unlimited Plans. The $45 plan (or blocks of 90-, 180-, or 365-day bundles sold at a discount) or the $60 International Unlimited Plan.

If you do not wish to go through the hassle of purchasing service each month, you have these options too:

1. Buying service in blocks (90-, 180-, or 365-day blocks). The larger the block the more you save. If you purchase the 365-day option, you will essentially be getting service for $41.25 per month.

2. You can put as much service in "reserve" as you wish. This can extend your "service end date" to as far out as you wish to go.

3. You also have the option of auto-refill where Straight Talk will automatically purchase each month service using your credit or debit card. Using this option, you don't have to remember to purchase service.

Moore0311, yes, it comes with everything you need to activate the phone EXCEPT a service card. You will need to purchase the first 30-days of service ($45) in order to activate.

You can either purchase a $45 service card at a Walmart store or purchase a virtual card online at Walmart.com separately from the purchase of the phone...

OR

you can wait until you receive the phone and are ready to activate as you can purchase the first 30-days of service AT THE TIME OF ACTIVATION directly through Straight Talk with a credit or debit card.

The essential things will be included in the box ...i.e., the charging head, USB cable, battery, activation card (instructions and numbers needed for activation), etc.
