You can't download nor add programs to R355C.

You'd have to go with a smart phone. The newest Straight Talk smart phone, Nokia E71, has 'Navigator' from Nokia.

You can move your number to Straight Talk and move it back to your current carrier. Each time you do it it's an 'activation' and 'porting' process.

To get a new number on your Straight Talk phone you just go thru the activation process and it will assign a new number. You'll lose any number associated with the phone if you chose to do this (you lose your number if you don't port it somewhere else).

These new phones are terrible with long nails. Mine are 3 inches (real) and I swear I want my old Sanyo 4900 (1998) phone back. That phone was great with nails! LOL. Oh well I guess times are changing. A stylus is recommended. Good Luck!

Yes it has the ability to light up. Go to Settings, Display Settings, Backlight, Keypad, select a duration. It should be lighting up automatically as I see no option to turn it off. Sounds like your keypad is not functioning 100%. Call Customer Service and perhaps they can troubleshoot or reset your phone.

VGA camera has pretty low resolution but the Samsung R355C actually has a 1.3Mega pixel camera, not outstanding but adequate and much better than a VGA.

History
Video Graphics Array (VGA) was originally developed by in 1987 by IBM as a means for their personal computers to display graphics on a monitor. It was replaced in the early 1990's by the more advanced Extended Graphics Array and Super Video Graphics Array standards that were made by both IBM and a score of third party computer companies. VGA is still used today in many mobile and handheld electronic applications.
Function
VGA cameras are digital cameras that store their images directly inside the camera's memory or onto an attached memory card. The images can then be transferred to a computer for printing or sent to a TV screen for public viewing by connecting a cable between the camera and the second device or by removing the memory card and inserting it into a card reader.
Features
Cameras that have the VGA designation take pictures that have a resolution of 640 X 480, which means that a picture will be 640 pixels wide by 480 pixels long. Images of that size do not take up much space, so most VGA cameras have a very small amount of internal memory. A 640 by 480 image will look distorted if printed on a full page, but will remain clear and crisp if printed as wallet sized or standard 5-inch photographs.

Most numbers will port to a Straight Talk phone. Tracfone most sure will, it's the same company as Straight Talk. To make the switch go to the Straight Talk Website link:
https://www.straighttalk.com/Activate

As soon as porting from Tracfone to Straight Talk is complete (mine took about 15 minutes) your Trracfone will deactivate and you'll existing minutes. Minutes can't be transferred.

Yes, you can transfer the number from your old phone to this phone, I recommend using Straighttalk's website when you start it up, but you cannot transfer any unused time on the old phone, as it is considered a completely separate business, and they don't sell by the minute, only monthly plans.
