Can I get Verizon 4G coverage on ST prepaid
Saturday 11th of August 2012
Hi all, I am a dumb phone user now. I am thinking about getting Android smartphones for my wife and I, we are currently with Verizon ( just out of contract) and am looking at Straight talk. We do a fair amount of motorcycle touring, often getting off the beaten path and have been happy with Verizon's coverage. I don't want to be broke down on the side of the road with no coverage, but, I do know there will be dead spots no matter what tower network covers us. Just looking for our best option.Straight talks Android coverage map has me concerned. I need some schooling please.The questions I have are(1) If I get an unlocked ( CDMA )Verizon 4G LTE phone and activate it with Straight Talk would it be limited to ST android coverage map or would I get coverage as shown on Verizon's coverage map ?(2) Would I be able to get the 4G speeds?(3) Is Att's 4G coverage really as good as it shows?Thank you for any help you may offer.
Need LG Optimus Q help!
Monday 04th of June 2012
I'll try to make a long story short but I'm giving this background info in case it may help you help me... so bear with me. I flashed AreaRomQ. It worked great. I loved it. I ran into a problem while trying to get my girlfriend a new phone, Straight Talk put MY number on her new Samsung Proclaim. After 6 calls to customer service and a few emails, I'm STILL battling this problem. My number is back on my phone, her number is back on her phone but neither phone will activate. Her phone will TRY to activate when you dial *22890 but fails every time. Mine treats the activation code like it's another phone number and says I dialed an incorrect code. When I dial any number, it doesn't even give a Straight Talk message or send you to customer service. It just says my account could not be validated. I thought if I could get the option to update my profile back, it would help. AreaRomQ doesn't have this as you know, so I flashed Hydro. I must have done something wrong because Hydro was missing some key apps like Android Market/Google Play Store and Terminal Emulator. So I figured I'd start fr

Straight Talk - Moving SIM from Windows to Android
Friday 21st of June 2013
Hello...I'm very frustrated and could use some expert advice because I'm not getting any from Straight Talk. Purchased a ST SIM card last month and successfully activated it with a Windows phone. I now want to move the SIM from the WP to a Samsung Captivate. Is the SIM card tethered to the WP? When the SIM is inserted into the Android phone there is no network available. Is it possible to use the same SIM or do I have to purchase another one to activate it with the other phone? Or is there another step that needs to be completed to activate the current SIM with the Android? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.ERowley

"unlocked" Verizon phones
Monday 12th of May 2014
If I purchase a Verizon phone from someone, and want to activate it on an mvno (say, Straight Talk) is there anything I have to do to the phone? Or look out for? If the phone is not "unlocked" could I still have it activated by Straight Talk? Posted via Android Central App
Sprint iPhone 4s on ST??
Sunday 16th of November 2014
I have a Sprint iPhone 4s laying around, and I'm needing to activate service with Straight Talk. The only catch is that I need to run on the Verizon towers. I was told a Sprint phone will run on Sprints network. But I thought ST only used Verizon and AT&T??If I can't use this phone on Verizon's network, I need to know so I can move onto something else.I'd rather have an android device but this iPhone is free lol
