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.

The E71 will like stated before with a certain app... BUT ... it totally against Straight Talks TOS and if they even think you are tethering (or using as a hot-spot) they will shut down your service and ban you for life from their products... no questions asked. I really don't think it's worth it myself...

Straight Talk phones are not Wi-Fi hotspot enabled so you cannot use it as an access point.

Yes you can create a hotspot but you need one of the new ST smartphones. The Nokia E71 can do that if you download AND pay for (~$15) a certain app.

No. This is a prepaid phone from Walmart that uses the Straight Talk phone. I used to have a verizon prepaid phone for years.
I switched to Straight Talk & bought the Samsung R451C. The Samsung R451C phone uses the Verizon cell towers.
I have very good service, many more minutes (even on the $30.00 plan).
Very happy with Straight Talk!

No because you can't use Straight Talk for International calling. Some claim they can get incoming calls from Canada... but Straight Talk says 'no'. Their website currently shows 'Internatioinal Calling coming soon'.
