Some stores have the ones with the bluetooth and some do not. I bought 2 at a Walmart here in Jacksonville, FL last week. If your store does not have it the one with the bluetooth...order it on walmart.com and have it delivered to your store with free delivery. They have 2 different sku numbers for the LG Optimus Q.

well, I'm going to try, due to the thousands of folks already doing it. That's a standard TOA, but i think if you keep it under 2gb and don't do p2p, you'll be fine. I do my downloads at work or hotspots via wi-fi, but at home, I'll just use my Android phone for e-mail and surfing, and tether up when I want/need to use my laptop. Bye bye $60 Comast monthly fees

Will it tether, yes... are you allowed to tether NO !!! ... It is in the ST Terms of Service that tethering is NOT allowed (whether you have the app or not)... ST monitors this VERY closely and if they catch you... you will be banned from their service forever... No kidding... and you will NOT get a refund... Read the small print !!!

Question

Text - Character Limits per message? Which Straight Talk phone does NOT have this?

Are there ANY Straight Talk phones out there that do not have a 160 character limit per message???? Per suggestion of a friend, I quit TMobile and got a straight talk phone. I text more than call or web so I was SUPER annoyed to find out that I can't just write a continuous message, it cuts you off at 160, so I have to save, make a draft and do this if I want to continue message. I lost my phone and before I get a new one, I want to know which do not have limits. If the phone has to split it up in multiple messages to send, so be it, but I don't want to have to do that myself manually. Never had this problem with any phone before Straight Talk. If I can't find a ST phone that does not have this, probably going back to one of the big providers and not returning to walmart.

I text long messages and it does split the text up after 160 characters but it sends everything all at once. I don't have to send one at a time to continue on.

Hello JRMiller,
The great thing about the LG Optimus Q is that it does allow you to compose text as one message. While you text your text message as a single text it will insert a very faint number inside the text to inform you that the text (2/2) and on and on as you go has started but that is the only sign that the phone is even counting your text messages.
I hope this will help you to make you decision. This is my 5th straight talk phone in 3 yrs and it is the first one I have had with this method and I am so happy bc like you I was so tired of multiple messages and going back to see what I had already written before sending the next part. Lol.
Best of Luck

You sound like you might be converting from a Blackberry since BB's can sync direct with Outlook and every other email.

yAndroid phones use Google Gmail as contact and scheduler manager even if they aren't prepaid.

You have to import your Outlook contacts and scehdule/ ToDo into your GMail account but it doesn't go straight to the phone over a USB cable llike Blackberry's do unless you've downloaded an Android app.

Google GMail has Outlook import features.

I use Windows XP Address Book and just exported the contacts as a CSV file. Then signed up for a Google account and imported the contacts CSV file to it. When I connected my phone to my computer it synced the contacts into the "Contacts" file on my LG Optimus Q phone. Just export your Outlook contacts to a CSV file and then import it to your Google account contacts.

It is factual that the Straight Talk company is Trac Fone, however, each Droid and/or smartphone operates on different towers between AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Precedent is on the Verizon Towers.

No this phone is on Sprint, the only Straight Talk android phone as of now that runs on Verizon is the Samsung Galaxy Precident which is a very low-end android as far as hardware goes, 800mhz single core cpu which isn't that bad but it only has 384mb ram which basically kills the phone and makes it pretty useless for games and web browsing. The optimus Q is only slightly better with a 1ghz single core cpu and 512mb ram plus its on Sprint which is the worst part of this phone..Hope this helps

No .. sorry to say that all of the Android phones offered from ST (a Tracfone company) all use the Sprint (pre-paid) network... There is however 2 different Nokia smartphones offered that use the AT&T network but they are no were close to the workings of an Android...

Go to http://www.straighttalk.com/ and choose "Shop" from the top menu and then "Phones".
Enter your zip code and you will get a list of phones that will work in your area. Pick your Android and then do a little research to see what network they run on. I have the LG Optimus Q and it runs on the Sprint network.
