What Company Runs Straight Talk?


Will any unlocked cdma phone work with Straight talk?

So straight talk uses the Verizon network. The only real issue I see with this company is their overall lack of phones. Can I simply purchase the unlocked cdma phone I want from ebay, or likes thereof, and use it on Straight talk's $45 unlimited talk, text, data plan? If so, do I just enter the unlocked esn number on the phone at the activation screen of straight talk? If this won't work-then why? Thanks in advance.

You will have to use one of their phones on straight talk, some of the phones are really good.

Can you use a contract phone for straight talk?

I have to evo 4g and i want to switch to straight talk. Do i have to pick a phone outta the company or can i keep my evo 4g and run off of straight talk ?

You have to buy a Straight Talk phone.

Can I use a Net 10 phone on Straight Talk service?

I want to buy a phone , the Samsung r451c, but the only problem is that it is on the net 10 serivce. I know that net 10 and Straight talk are under the same company, so I was wondering if this could be done. Straight talk offers the same phone but at least $40 dollars more.

Nope..no cross network, Net10/Straight Talk/Tracfone can only be used on there own networks and there will probably never be any flashing or unlocking for these phones/phone carriers. Hope that helps.

And BE CAREFUL buying a used prepay phone off Craigslist..make SURE they are clear and ready to be activated on a new service.

Straight Talk Cellphone Plans?

Im thinking about switching and I was wondering what you guys think of the service? Also, could I buy a iPhone off EBay or something and just get a new SIM card from Straight Talk or do I need to buy a phone from them? Thanks

Straight Talk buys airtime from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint and sells it to you to use with Straight Talk phones. Where I live Straight Talk uses Verizon towers for service. So I have Verizon service for less than half the price(since I use Net10 and not Straight Talk).

It is easier to buy a Straight Talk phone and use their phones for service. You get a year warranty on all of your phones. So if your phone breaks because of no fault of your own, Straight Talk will replace your phone for you. If you are having trouble with your phone, Straight Talk will help you fix your phone.

If you want to bring your own phone, you have to have it unlocked. Then you have to do all of your own programming to the phone. Some people have trouble with the programming and unlocking of a non Straight Talk phone. So it is just easier to buy a phone from Straight Talk and not have to worry about programming.

How long does it take to port a number from Verizon to Straight Talk?

Hi. I bought a straight talk phone and I called straight talk to port my number from verizon. It's been about 12 hours already and it hasen't successfully gone through yet. Does anyone know how long it will take for it to be complete? Thanks.

this comes from straight talk:
The transferring of your number to a new Straight Talk might take a few hours; however, if there are any delays from your current wireless carrier, the transfer process could take up to 7 days and in the case of landline numbers, transfers may take up to 30 days.
Your new Straight Talk will be ready to complete activation when your old phone stops working.
good luck. i own a straight talk phone and i love it. just be warned (this is not on there website) that they do charge taxes when you buy minutes online on there website or by calling them. if you buy the minutes at a walmart it will have less taxes on it then going through straight talk.
