Can I Transfer Cell to Another Service?

 cell-phone_sQuestion:  I currently have a Droid Razr phone through Verizon and have another year of contract with them. Can I transfer wireless line to Straight Talk?

Answer:  Customers can transfer an eligible landline and/or an eligible wireless number within the local service area. Pager numbers, special use numbers and toll free numbers are not available for transfer. The number requested to be ported will be checked at the initiation of the transfer process to ensure that the number is eligible for porting.

To port in your existing telephone number to your Straight Talk phone and obtain wireless service provided by Straight Talk, you (the Subscriber) must agree to the following:

The number you are porting must be active with your current service provider. The transfer process could take as long as 2 business days, but in most cases it only takes a few hours. Transfers for landline numbers may take longer. If your Straight Talk service remains inactive over 30 days, you will lose your telephone number.

Until the porting process is complete, should you need to call 911 for emergency assistance, you must give the 911 operator your location as the 911 operator will not be able to reach you until the port process is complete. If you switch your home telephone number to Straight Talk, your home telephone service will be disconnected.

SPRINT Unlocking for Domestic Usage

Sprint will unlock a device from Sprint's network under the following circumstances:

  • Any associated Service Agreement, Installment Billing Agreement, or Lease Agreement has been fulfilled including payment in full of any applicable early termination fees or end-of-lease purchase options
  • The associated account is in good standing
  • The device has not been reported as lost or stolen, associated with fraudulent activity, or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked

Generally, if you have a device that was launched prior to February 2015 and it is capable of being unlocked, Sprint will provide a bill notification and/or text message when you are eligible to have your device unlocked. The bill notification will direct you to Sprint Customer Care who can assist in efforts to unlock your device.

For domestic SIM unlockable ("DSU") devices launched after February 2015, Sprint will automatically unlock the device when it becomes eligible.

For inactive devices, customers must contact Sprint Customer Care to request that their DSU-capable device be unlocked and may have to take steps to perform an over-the-air update to ensure the unlock programming has been relayed to the device.

STRAIGHT TALK WIRELESS Phone Compatibility Information

You will need to check if your phone is compatible with Straight Talk's Bring your Own Phone CDMA program. If it is compatible, you will be able to register it and get your service activated today. If your phone is not compatible with the program, you will receive a message indicating this and will not be able to register.

Please use their form to find out if you're phone is compatible.  All you do is enter your Phone's IMEI, MEID, MEID DEC, or MEID HEX. If your phone has both an IMEI and MEID, try with the IMEI first. If that fails, then try with your MEID. In many phones it can be found by going to the "Settings" menu and selecting "About Phone" and then "Status." It may also be found on a label underneath the battery.  Complete short form here

Sprint Review

Sprint Nextel offers a comprehensive range of wireless and wireline communications services bringing the freedom of mobility to consumers, businesses and government users. Sprint Nextel served more than 55 million customers at the end of 2011 and is widely recognized for developing, engineering and deploying innovative technologies, including the first wireless 4G service from a national carrier in the United States; offering industry-leading mobile data services, leading prepaid brands including Virgin Mobile USA, Boost Mobile, and Assurance Wireless; instant national and international push-to-talk capabilities; and a global Tier 1 Internet backbone. Newsweek ranked Sprint No. 3 in its 2011 Green Rankings, listing it as one of the nation's greenest companies, the highest of any telecommunications company.



Sprint offers numerous unique pricing plans that tend to emphasize data usage over more traditional voice applications. That seems a logical extension of their leadership in the adoption of 4G data transfer technology. Sprint is the Top on list because the pricing plans offer different feature sets than those of other carriers, comparison can be a bit difficult, but the plans may well be best for any individual consumer’s needs. The cell phone provider has consistently lagged behind the competition in customer service. Clcik Here To Learn More
