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...

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.

Yes you can. When you go to activate your phone on the straight-talk site, it will ask you if you'd like to switch your number over from a previous company.

It may depend on the carrier, but I am porting my old # from AT&T. When you activate your phone, choose the option to use an old phone #. They say it may take up to 7 days for the number to get ported. You must have your old # still in service until the port is completed.

No you don't HAVE to use the full keyboard to text, although to use the internet browser you have to have it open, or it will not open and if you close the keyboard while your using the internet it'll close the browser.

You must first cancel Verizon acct. before you can use that number on new phone. But call straight talk right after you do, so Verizon won't issue your number to someone else.

Current number can be transferred by using the Straight Talk website or calling Customer Service for assistance.

There's no charge to transfer a phone #.

Yes you can buy the phone and activate it with a random telephone number if that's what you like initially. Whence you're ready, simply go thru activation again and transfer your number. That's a smart process, to be sure the Straight Talk phone will perform in your area.

Either text the pictures to your email address or buy a phone memory card. You can use the memory card to transfer the pictures onto, and then put the memory card in your computer (if your computer has the available slot).
