      Let me know. I appreciate help.
    Need more guidelines.

    Do you want to stick with a CDMA phone, like the Centura (no sim card, basically)?
    Or a GSM phone (uses a SIM card, and can use AT&T and/or T-Mobile towers)?

    There are both varieties of phones you can buy from StraightTalk.

    If you want a different way to do it, you can buy a AT&T, T-Mobile, or a Verizon phone, and go the BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) route.  The advantage here is you get the phone you want, with the capabilities you want, in the version you want. Going the GSM way means you have to buy a "sim kit", and if you go CDMA (Verizon), you have to activate it with the phones good MEID.

    Up to you. But the BYOP opens up alot more options.

    Well I already have a byop package I bought months ago and never used it so honestly  the Sim card way could be a possibility . I didn't know if I bought a CDMA phone I would have to turn it on with that service  first I had no  clue. So I guess I would have to go gsm way  because I refuse to pay a Verizon ( expensive plan  just to switch it over.  ) so I guess now I'm limited thanks  for the info though
