Yes you can. Pull up your contacts and highlight the contact you want to add a ringtone to then select "edit" on the left hand side. Scroll down until the ringtone is highlighted and choose "Set" on the left side. You can then choose from the ringtones you have saved. Make sure you save the update before you close the contact info.

To clarify, for calls you can designate a ringtone for EACH CONTACT. Text message tones can not be customized, are whatever sound you set for Text messages.

yes, phone does have a key lock. go under settings, to auto key lock. turn it on. Problem is, that auto key lock doesn't activate until about 90 seconds after inactivity. so if you quickly shove it into your purse/pants, you can still press numbers. that's happened to me a few times. i was actually online, wasting my gigs, and didn't realize it. and i went into settings under security and tried to choose my own passcode, but it didn't take. hope this helps.

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.

answer 1
You can, but here is the key thing. Not all companies require a password attached to your account, and US Cellular is one of them. However, without something you cannot port. So you have to use the last 4 digits of you social security number in addition to your account number. (Would have been a lot simpler if ALL the ST personnel knew this, as I wasted an entire day and ended up mad at the world!! Called back two days later and spoke to Carlos, who actually knew this!)

Yes, when you activate the phone, you can have your number ported. To do this, I recommend using the StraightTalk website to activate, as it is a lot easier than using their call center. It may take a few days.

Yes, you can. You have to do it when you activate the phone, and it can take a little while (a few hours), but if you have the account information from your old company, then you should be able to transfer the number. I transferred my old number.

You have to buy a straight talk phone. They come in GSM and CDMA. You can transfer you number but not use your old SIM card. If you get Verizon in in your are well, this is a CDMA phone and will work well. It does for me.
