Question

how to download music from computer to phone

answer 1
you can transfer mp3s to the phone by purchasing a usb "patch cord" for it. Amazon or ebay are usually the best places fine them.
You can also purchase a card reader for the sd card and swap it out the card between the computer/phone to get the music files on the sd card.
I hear you can transfer them via blue tooth if you have that on your computer.
Hope this helps.

To use the MP3 player, you must purchase and install a micro SD card inside your phone. The card must be less than 16GB.

I bought a 4GB Filemate Micros SD card for $7 online recently at walmart.com, which also came with a card adapter. The card adapter can be used in a notebook computer that has a slot or you'll need to also buy a USB adapter if your computer doesn't have the adapter slot (I bought a Targus brand for $8 @walmart.com). Or you can buy a data cable to fit this model (bought mine on Ebay for $2). A cable is nice because it lets your PC connect directly to your phone, with no need for the adapter.

It's a bit confusing to just read about it. Make a shopping list:

-Microsd Card
-USB card adapter
-Data cable

Once you have those you can easily move your MP3s from your PC to your phone.

Generic accessories can be purchased at places like drug stores, dollar stores, travel stops, etc. Back in the day these weren't great choices but now generics work fine. I bought my car charger at a Flying J eight months ago and it's great.

For 'OEM' you may find what you need on Ebay. Search for 'R355C'. There are other great accessories too like the spare charger, leather holsters, extra batteries, faceplates, soft covers, data cables, amd wall-chargers. Of course look for sellers with a track record and affordable shipping costs. Good luck!

Radio Shack carries a charger called the iGo. It is a car charger that can use a number of different adapters. The charger and adapters are sold seperatly but this allows you the added benifit of being able to charge any number of different devices by simply buying an adapter. Check ebay for soft and hard covers as well as holsters. They may also have car charges.

Does this phone 'pocket-dial' when you have it in your pocket or purse?

On most phones, you can "lock" the phone by pressing a 2-key combination. Then, in case a number is unintentionally pressed, it won't dial out unless you "unlock" it. Consult your instruction manual for more info. If you don't have it, you should be able to download it from your service provider's website.

It can. But if you press and hold the Space key, that locks the keypad so that there's no "pocket dialing." To unlock, you just click one of the softkeys and click Space again. Very easy to lock and unlock.

You can turn on "Auto Key Lock" function under "Phone Settings" to prevent pocket dials. It will NOT prevent 911 calls, but will prevent any others. When Auto Key Lock is on, the screen will tell you which 2 keys to push in rapid succession in order to unlock the phone. To turn this function on, go to MENU then SETTINGS then PHONE SETTINGS then AUTO KEY LOCK.

I'm not sure regarding this issue. They say it is assigned to their network, so you wouldn't be able to use it with another network. Even companies with prepaid phones don't let you use those phones on their paid plans. You once could as I chopped my smartphone up with the lawn mower and got a prepaid one years ago to replace it, but not any more. They got wise to this money savings plan. They like to get their moneys worth! Good luck with your research!

If you're asking whether you're stuck with the first phone you buy, the answer is... "You can switch to a different Straight Talk phone at any time. It only takes a couple of minutes at their website." Fair Warning... Straight Talk phones and phone service are pretty good, but their customer service is TERRIBLE. If you can't figure it out by navigating on their website, just give up and send the phone back.

that depends on who you have for email, for yahoo, gmail, aol, twitter, myspace, it will ask you for your user name and password and will sign you in, it keeps that cookie for as long as the site you visit requires it and will automatically take you there when you go to that site. on some email sign ins it will say remember me, just check that box. so simple i did it on the first day. some sites require you to sign in every 2 or more weeks, depending on site visited.
