For covers, check Ebay. Here's a link:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/Cell-Phone-PDA-Accessories-/9394/i.html?_nkw=528g&_catref=1&_dmpt=PDA_Accessories&_fln=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282

And any truck stop or dollar store sells generic covers. If you want to pay a little more shop at a national drugstore or electronics store like Walgreen's or Radio Shack. If you want authentic then go to an AT&T store which carries accessories for the 528G.

And while you're at it you might pick up the Data Cable too. Ebay has them for under $5, here's a link: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=528g+data+cable&_sacat=9394&_dmpt=PDA_Accessories&_odkw=528g&_osacat=9394&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

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.

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.

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.

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.

Don't do it unless you don't plan on texting much, the letters are so small you will constantly hit the letters above, below and besides. It will take too long to send out a text. I'm returning mine!

Yes, it is a good phone. I like it. I haven't had any problems with it. I get on facebook, I add music from my computer. I already had a usb cable, it doesn't come with the phone. It's a cute little touch screen phone, easy to use.

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.

You might find some apps, but don't count on lots of apps being available. This phone does not run a major OS like Android. Yes, it can run apps, but I doubt that there are tons of people writing apps for this OS.
