answer 1
No you want to use the S738C Galaxy Centura:
Check the boxes (bottom left corner) they tell you which network you will be on:
GSM-A > AT&T
CDMA-V > Verizon
CDMA-S > Sprint
The phone models have a hint in them too, like Samsung Galaxy Discover S730G < the “G” meaning GSM. If buying online don't expect the Straight Talk help line to explain which phone is which carrier, my experience they are clueless. Just do a little googling on user forums. Bottom line you can order online if it is not on your preferred carrier Walmart is fantastic about returns. Opened or not you can return within 15 days.

Unfortunately, it uses the UMTS:3 frequency which is AT&T. I bought this needing Verizon coverage and am having to send it back. The Samsung Proclaim is a CDMA phone, which means Verizon coverage. It costs the same here on walmart.com. I just ordered mine! Hope you find one that works for you!

The activation card is to activated the phone itself. To use it (talk text moblie) you have to buy a service card.

answer 3
The activation card included with the phone is simply contains the serial number you will need to activate the phone and instructions on programming your new phone. You will still need to purchase a $45 or $60 green service pin card. I hope this helps. :)

answer 4
What is referred to as an "activation card" is an informational card that gives the instructions on how to activate the phone along with all the identifying numbers which correspond to the phone that are needed for activation.

You may be referring to a "service card" or Straight Talk "plan" that is what provides the actual service. That you have to pay for separately and is NOT included with the phone. You are required to purchase at or before activation, a $45 unlimited plan (or $60 International plan) or multiples.

(ST refurbished phones sold by Walmart do come with a free 30-day service plan, however. Brand new phones like this one do not.)

Unfortunately, no. For one, the phones that Straight Talk sells are required to use Straight Talk plans and you agree to do that when you purchase the phone.

Two, this particular phone is GSM and configured out-of-the box to use AT&T where Boost Mobile uses only CDMA devices as they use the Sprint network exclusively.

If you like the Boost Mobile plans, Debbie, and don't mind having a phone that is on the Sprint native network, you should buy a phone that Boost Mobile sells.

Yes you can keep your number. If you are currently on the Unlimited Plan with Straight Talk, all you have to do is to transfer the plan to this phone. You won't lose any service remaining on your account.

You can do the transfer online yourself or call a Straight Talk representative and they will help you activate the phone, transfer it to your current account, and will make sure that the new phone will have the same phone number.
