One way is to email them to yourself and download from your email.

Another way is to get a cable for the phone. You can find on Ebay:

U have to have a sims card to get the pics off the phone or a usb cord. Just put the sims card in and then change ur settings to send to card. Then u can get the card where u can insert the small sims in. Or u can just hook the usb cord into the ohone and ur computer.

answer 2
Each $30 card includes 30MB of data. You can be online until you've downloaded 60MB if you have 2 cards. Keep in mind that if you run out of data and apply a new card you will lose the remaining minutes and messages from the previous card. So you would be starting the 30 day clock again with 1000 minutes/messages and 30MB data.

I don't think that straight talk has 30 minute cards, that would be a completely different service like net 10, trac phone or virgin mobile. With the $30 card you get 30mb which from my experience you can check three or so stocks once a day for a month. Or i would say about 90-120 pages on the internet depending on the amount of pictures on the sites, more pictures=more mb.

answer 1
You can keep your present number if you transfer it from your old service provider, but it will take quite some time, before the number will be transferred, (Can be up to 2-3 weeks in some cases), and during that time you cannot use the straight talk phone.

I can't speak for Netelos but I was able to transfer my number from AT&T. The transfer was completed within a few hours of my request.

as far as I know you can keep your number ! It may take awhile longer to get you phone on though because your keeping the same number. its faster to get your phone on if you just get a new number. no paper work or anytihng and its more simple for them . i didn't keep my same number cause I didn't want to wait that long. I needed my phone turned on soon as possible!

I am in Orange, CA. In this area it is a CDMA phone and appears to be using Verizon's network. When calling my number after I requested the transfer to this phone, but before it was complete instead of getting my old AT&T voice mail I got the message "The Verizon customer you are calling is not available..."

I personally use the LG 290C right now, and it does not use a SIM Card. Its a very reliable phone. In the 10 1/2 months I've had it I've only ever dropped 3 calls.

Here's a partial answer - Any phone model number ending in C doesn't have a sim card. The one's with a G do. They represent 2 different cell tower networks, which is probably why one works better than another in your area.
