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.

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!

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.

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!
