Yes, you can download and use the phone, text, or wifi calling. But just so you know, downloading an mp3 takes seconds.... so it's not like you'd have long to wait. lol. it is a multi-task capable phone. and the wifi calling is AWESOME and does not count towards your minutes.

you can if you know how to hack it. There are blogs about how to do just that on the internet. However, this functionality is not native to the phone or the OS.

it's not exactly pay as you go. it's prepay which means you pay $30 every month whether you use it or not. if you don't, the phone de-activates which is no big deal but you just have to go through the activation process again, which is a pain. The $30 pre-paid cards are available at walmart.

Question

I currently have a family plan with t-mobile and I have a regular Nokia phone, but it is like 4-5 years old. Will this phone work as a replacement?

Can I disable the network so I am not charged for data line and still use the phone and the wi-fi?

I had this same question, so I called T-Mobile. They put a block on my phone so I wouldn't accidentally use data and be charged for it. However, I am still able to use wifi to connect to the internet for free.

I have actually spoke to Tmobile customer service and they told me if you purchase a phone from someone besides tmobile you can have it activated but CAN NOT get insurance on the phone. So that is the ONLY down fall to buying a phone from another source than tmobile, I personally think its worth it.

Question

Unlocked T-Mobile

I was offered a Samsung Exhibit II that had a prepaid plan with T-Moble. Looking at the way to unlock a phone, you put in a non T-Moble carrier SIM card when you unlock it. Now it is unlocked and the clains that it can be activated with any carrier. Including T-Moble?
Can I go back to a T-Moble SIM card to activate an account thru WalMart?

this phone is programmed to work with TMobile and always will work with Tmobile. Walmart does not sell Tmobile SIM cards by itself, so the second part of your plan will not work.

Question

When I activate on T-mobile, do they automatically know that this was purchased from Walmart to allow the Walmart exclusive $30 (100-minute) plan?

Is there anything else I need to do to get the Walmart $30 unlimited data with 100-minutes of talk plan after purchasing this phone? I think I just go to T-mobile.com to activate and request the plan? Am I missing something? Thanks!!!

You can activate it yourself online or have them do it in the Walmart store. Be sure and check you account carefully to make sure you don't get the default 30Mb data plan though. If you do you will have to go back and have them correct it.

I do not know what Simple Mobile is but if it doesnt use the T-Mobile network (like Family Mobile does) then it will not work. This phone is locked to the T-Mobile nextwork. I tried an AT&T SIM in it and it would not work.

Yes, you can order a sim card from Tmobile for a couple dollars. Just make sure the phone has been released from the previous owner.

I don't know if you can buy a sim card from T-mobile or not. I do know you can buy a sim card from Family Mobile and use it with this phone. If you can get a sim card from T-mobile it should work. If nothing else you could buy the cheapest T-mobile no contract phone you can find and use the sim card from it. Hope this helps.
