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 !!!

because ST used SPRINT PREPAID AND is different from the REAL SPRINT COVERAGE .the easy way to find out if this phone works in your area they used the same coverage as BOOST MOBILE ,AND VIRGIN MOBILE if you know some that has one of these two in your area if it works in your area then this phone will work too

not through the phone itself. Theres an app on the Google Play Store called "BlockEm." Works wonderfully. if a call or text comes in that is not in your contact list, it will ask you, then just select block or unblock.

From what i can remember, unless its an app for android. Call blocking is a service that is normally paid for, like when they talk about Call Waiting/Caller ID. It never caught on to cell phones. But on land lines you dial *60 Then set what numbers you want to block from calling you.

This phone and the plan will allow international texting but if you want to do voice talk, you'll need to add an international talk package. Look on Straight Talk's site. They have a page dedicated to rates for different countries.

Question

Does this phone use verizon or sprint cell towers ?

Heres the deal. If you want Verozn towers, the straight talk phone must have CDMA on the face of the box! It is in the lower left hand corner of the box. If it doesn't show CDMA - it is not a verizon tower phone....period. I spoke to a couple of techs from Straight Talk and they are the ones who told me what to look for. Unfortunately, not many Walmart phones use Verizon towers any more.

Sprint, and only Sprint. The model number is LG55C. Despite the presence of the C, it is Sprint.

Well, the only person who would know the stock number is someone who works at walmart but the network is Sprint, which is why I am returning the phone so I hope that helps.

As the other person mentioned, international is $60 per month.

For a list of which countries are unlimited and which ones are not, go to the straight talk website and they have a list.

CAN I TRANSFER MY SAVED MESSAGES FROM MY OLD PHONE?

I have the old ST slider and want to transfer saved text messages and voicemails to the new one before turning the new one on...is it possible?

Also, once I turn off the old phone will I lose my saved voicemails or will they still be there as I'm already using ST?

There is an activation card in the package with the phone and you must purchase a monthly access card for $30 or $45 (unlimited access text, web and data, nationwide calling) Straighttalk card, look for the green ones with the phones at Walmart in the electronics department.
