The "G" at the end of the model number - T528G indicates that this is a GSM phone. All GSM phones worldwide have sim cards. On Straight Talk, all GSM network phones run on the AT&T network, while all CDMA phones run on Verizon.

The Samsung T528G does not have an exclusive case or cover for it. You can go to skinit.com but all that is is a design sticker you put on the phone. However someone told me that the silicone case for the Samsung Solstice 2 works just fine.

It does not have a pull-out keyboard. It is a touchscreen phone and has an onscreen Qwerty keyboard, but it also offers you the option of using an onscreen keyboard that is like the buttons on a phone, if you prefer that option.

Yes, it has a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard when you turn the phone sideways. Unfortunately, the letter keys are extremely small, and getting the keyboard to pop up can be difficult as the accelerometer is of very poor quality.

When you connect to your wifi it is supposed to automatically have preference over the mobile network. So you would be using the wifi data, not your ST data plan.

Ya i'm just giving you heads up the texting takes getting use to. You have to push the top of the letter to choose that one. If you push it directly it doesn't do anything. You just have to get use to it but it's a real good phone for real cheap. Can't really go wrong and complain it's only 29.99 have a good day.

answer 1
They can. I asked the sales associate who waiting on us if they handled the activation, and he said that he could activate the phone for us. However, we wanted to go ahead and do the three month option, and they only had the one-month cards at our store. So we ended up taking it home and activating in via the Straight Talk website. You can also activate yourself over the telephone using the phone number provided.

answer 2
If you mean activating a phone, some WMs do and some don't. Most have a kiosk where it's done online but only if it's a new activation and you're not porting a number. If you're porting a number, it can't be done on the WM kiosk by them.

If you mean setting up all the features or transferring your contacts, then most likely no.

This could be due to a number of things including, wrong settings on your phone or a defect. I know ST customer service has a bad reputation and it'll be like dying a slow painful death, but yeah, you need to call them to see if they can figure it out. Depending on how long ago you bought the phone, you could exchange it. WM has a 14 day return/exchange policy I think; otherwise, you'll have to get a new phone through ST. One thing you might try to to is a master reset of the phone.

If you have the wi-fi turned on it won't connect to 3G. It wont connect to send texts or make calls. If your wi-fi is on, you have to turn it off to get back onto 3G.
