Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk LG Optimus Q Android Prepaid Cell Phone

Question

Can I switch my information from my current Straighttalk phone to another phone?

Hi, I most likely will be purchasing this phone in a few days online. I was wondering, can I switch the information from the phone I have now to this phone when it arrives? Will it cost anything? How do I do it? I called for this situation a couple months back and they said one has to be unactivated, but will it transfer my card time over as well? Thank you! (:

You can transfer your pictures, videos & sounds via your microSD card, transfer your contacts via bluetooth, transfer time left on one phone to new phone- call StraightTalk to make the transfer & they will move your minutes OR actually they should move to your new phone if you do it online also.

It said yes..just dont cancel your old service until you have finally activated your new phone..
I tried to keep my old number..but i must have clicked the wrong button online..and since it took less than 1 minute to power up my service on the new phone..i was happy to let the old number go..go to straighttalk.com..and check it out

If you go to the page to the left of the homepage and turn off the center button at the top (mark it grey instead of green). That will disable the GPS feature that transmits your GPS location constantly.

If you download a task killer app, that will help to optimize your phone. I use Easy Task Killer and Easy Battery Saver to kill apps and manage my battery usage when not at home.

Push the furthest left button at the bottom of your screen. A small menu will pop up on your screen, click "Manage Apps". On the tabs, click "Running". Find the program that is running, for instance, Google Maps, touch it and you have the option to stop it from running.

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

Question

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?

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.

All the Androids will let you text international but you must purchase an additional card for that... Not sure on the price... Go to ST website...

You can keep your phone number, if you did not transfer to Verizon from another cell phone company with that phone number. Cell phone numbers can only be transferred once between companies.

No. Straight talk will port your number over. It could take a week if Verizon wants to be stubborn about it. Usually an hour to 24 hours from my experience. That's going on three years now.

No. You can port your phone number to or from any carrier. It may take a few hours to a few days. The Straight Talk website explains it.

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