Question

does wal-mart set up your phone at the store for you?

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.

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.

Never. This is a GSM phone. The G at the end of the model number tells you that. Verizon doesn't have a GSM network. Their network is CDMA. So you will never see this exact model on Verizon or from Straight Talk on Verizon's network.

A good way to figure out which phones run off of verizon towers and which ones run off of att towers is to look at the front of the box where it says "on one of america's best networks" (something like that) there is a Icon of the the US in blue or red. The blue is att and the red is verizon, although it doesn't say this on the box, trust me I've had straight talk for almost as long as its been around. I had a phone that ran off verizon towers first and now I have the new samsung 528 and it is running off att.

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.

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
