Try taking the back cover off of your phone and removing the battery for a few seconds. Then reassemble it. If the problem keeps happening, go to Walmart and demand your money back.

I recommend buying Walmart's phone protection service. It's really cheap and protects your phone for a whole year no matter what you do to it.

If I am not mistaken yes. I had my phone replaced and was able to keep my same number. If your phone is damaged call tech support and trouble shoot it. If the phone is defective and able to be shipped to them under warranty they will then ship you one back.

Yes but not very good. It makes mpeg video which is pretty blocky and yes it can send the picture/video. I have sent several videos to my email address and opened and viewed the mpegs with Windows Media Player. I have Windows XP home. I cannot say how well it works with other operating systems.

Straight Talk runs off whatever network is available in the area. Whatever the selection is just choose one, should be ok. Or if you look in your setup you should find you cand set your network to 'automatic' to allow the system to make the choice.

Yes you can port your current cell number to Straight Talk. It can take up to a week for your CURRENT provider to RELEASE the number. I've complaints but not a Straight Talk iusse. I had the same cell # for 8 years and porting took less than 15 minutes but some say they've waited a week.

Before you do it, realize you will lose any minutes you had on the OLD phone. The minutes don't transfer.
