YES... you can and it is very easy if your computer has "Bluetooth"... If it does not have Bluetooth built in, you can purchase a very cheap ($20) Bluetooth adapter and plug it in. I transfer pix all the time...

the unlimited talk and text cards are $45 and that will include unlimited internet as well. I don't know if you can upload pics to the pc from it. I haven't been able to do it. The only way I get them is to email them to myself from the phone, then save them from the email to my pc

Question

Copy contacts to MicroSD card?

I want to copy/backup the contacts from my R451C onto my MicroSD card. How would I do that?
Or, is there an alternative (simpler) way to back up my contacts from the R451C?

Go to your contacts list and the go to options from the right soft key... scroll down each entry and tick the box on all you contacts and send the Vcard by bluetooth to your new phone. They will ALL transfer at once... better than doing them one by one... I just did it myself, takes about 15 seconds and I had over 100 contacts... and BTW, there is no way to save them on you memory card... It doesn't function the same as a sim card...

answer 2
There's no simple way to do it. You can only copy your contacts using the bluetooth connection (on both phones), and You can only transfer one by one. A tedious and slow way to do it, but it's a better alternative than having to enter them (each and every one) as new entries. As an additional downside, just like it would be with any other phone, some of the information that you can save in this phone's phonebook might not be compatible with your other phone's phonebook; therefore you might not be able to transfer/copy all the details (fax #, Pager #, Pic ID, email add., etc ).

After working with the Samsung R451C for almost a year now, I have come to the conclusion that there is NO way to save your contacts. You CANNOT transfer contacts to another phone with this item.

Question

If you get the version of this phone that only uses at&t/t-mobile towers, do you have to pick t-mobile or at&t, or can you use both towers?

Please do not answer this question with "Verison." That doesn't answer the question.

You do not choose the towers. The phone you are talking about is the Samsung T404G. I have a friend who had that phone. I have been told that AT&T and T-Mobile use the same towers. This particular phone you have this question under is the Samsung R451C and it runs off of Verizon. All phones models ending in the letter "C" (cdma) run off of Verizon towers. The phone models ending in the letter "G" (gsm) run off AT&T/T-Mobile towers.

OK ... I think I know what you're asking. This phone (R451C) will NOT work on either AT&T or T-Mobile because it is a CDMA phone..... The T401G (very much alike) WILL use AT&T or T-Mobile but you DO NOT get to choose.... Straight Talk will sell you the phone that has the best service in you area... Also, Walmart will only have in stock the phone that works best in your area.... either AT&T or T-Mobile, but not both ....

"C" in the model name means CDMA and that is VERIZON network.

451C is not going to work on the AT$T /T-Mobile Towers.

If you need or want phones for AT$T or T-Mobile look for "G" in the model name or no letter code at all.

So.... VERIZON.

Yes, if you have another straight talk phone just call and transfer to new one. if you have another carrier, you must first cancel acct. with other carrier. Then call straight talk and activate new phone with number you want to keep.

You can keep your current number and have it ported to your new phone. Be aware there is a possibility you may be without service for a few days. I had problems with a defective phone and it was the 3rd day without service that they realized that it was my phone and not the port that was the problem. However I have a friend who had her number transferred in about an hour. They tell you it could take up to a of couple days to transfer a phone number.

You can keep your old phone number. Whenever you get a new StraightTalk phone just simply call the Customer Service line (you may be able to do it through their site but I wouldn't know from experience) and let them know you bought a new phone and would like to activate it and continue service on it but you want your old number. This is not applicable if you were not already a StraightTalk customer.

Yes.

You have the option to transfer (port) your current/active telephone # when you activate your Straight Talk phone.

If you're new to Straight Talk you might consider trying it out for a month before you port your telephone #. When you activate your phone take a random phone number and if you're satisfied you can transfer your current cell telephone. I transferred from $print two years ago, completely satisfied.

It does have a calender.
Menu > Tools(8) > Calender(2).

You can add any type of event to the desired date and you can set up Alarms/Alerts/Reminders if you so desire. Just use the directional pad to select the date and hit "Add". You should be able to follow from there.

yes run on different servers but I have the t401g and keyboard is only 3 lines so buttons are easier to use this one is 4. also T401g is a bit thinner. my friend has this one (451c) so we compared and this one is bigger and heavier. but she was able to find new hard cases for this one and I can not for the T401g so it depends on what you want/need in a phone and whether you get verizon ot att coverage better

They do run on different servers the C is what most verizion phones run on the G is what most AT&T phones run on..so depending which service is better in your area should help you decide which phone to choose..for example if verizion has more towers in your area then you want the 451c..If AT&T has more towers in your area then you want the 401G
