Sure, that's what I do, so I don't have to always remember when I need to make a payment for air time. They will automatically charge your credit/debit card, or your bank account (your choice), when your payment is due, or when you run out of paid airtime.

There is a USB connection on the LG phone on the side of the phone, where the send button is located. The music will be saved in the audio folder, and you can access it under "My Folder"

Next time you load your plan to the phone go to the straight talk website and use the refill area. When you do this it will reset your phones pass code to the last 4 digits of your phone #.

typically your pass code is the last four digits of your phone number.

I have a similar problem with my Straight Talk Prepaid LG 290C Phone but I'm not sure if it's the same issue. They vicariously place their speaker phone button where you need to grip the phone. Maybe your turning it on by accident.

straighttalk and Tracfone are the same company and yet sraighttalk charges 70 for this phone and I got mine through Tracfone and it was 20 ...makes no sence. I got ahold of the company to see if they would or could switch it to straighttalk since i have tracfone and they said no...go figure!!!
