Of course!! It has a qwerty keyboard. If you get the $30. a mon. plan you can have 1000 texts and 1000 min. but with the $45. a mon., it's unlimited everything!

Yes! However the keys are very small and close together which results in you typing the wrong key at least 3 times before getting it correct or you end up deleting the word or sending it before you are ready! It's a headache and you can't use a stylus!

For covers, check Ebay. Here's a link:

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

Not sure where everyone is getting the idea that the $30 "All You Need" card works with this phone. Straight Talk says that you MUST use the Unlimited $45 card for this phone.

You will need to pick up a micro SD card at Walmart that has an adapter with it if you ever plan to transfer pictures etc to your PC from your phone. I currently have an 8GB SanDisk micro SD card in mine which isn't expensive to get and its easy to use the save option with this phone! I hope this helps!

Any straight talk phone with a G in the model number is a GSM phone (T-mobile, ATT). Phones ending in a C are CDMA (Verizon). This phone is an ATT phone.

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.
