This straight talk phone runs on the Sprint network. It said it was not available at my zipcode in Valdosta GA but it was available in Tallahassee FL. I bought the phone there and set it up. It works fine here in Valdosta and it was well worth the hour drive to go get it!

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

answer 1
Has a 800 ghz SINGLE core processor (very low end) which is ARM v6... It will NOT load Google Earth or install Flash.... but still a good beginners phone... You'll find a lot of free apps that require at least ARM v7 before they will install.... I have this phone myself to take fishing and hunting... Very good call quality if you have good Sprint coverage...

answer 3
It is NOT 1 ghz. My mother has this phone, and I have the Boost Mobile LG Marquee (which DOES have a 1 ghz). I got the boost to replace my own LG Optimus. And the Marquee is MUCH MUCH faster than this one. And it doesn't freeze up as much. So I cannot tell you exactly what it is, just to say it is slow enough to tell a real discernible difference between this phone and a true 1 ghz.

So in MY OPINION it is worth the few extra bucks to get a 1 ghz phone (I believe Samsung has a Straight Talk with 1 ghz) if you use aps or basically do anything but use the phone to just talk. Someone else might say they don't notice a difference. Like I said, just my opinion. Oh and plus, the newer phones which DO have 1 ghz generally have larger screens. This phone isn't much narrower than my Marquee, but my overall screen size is much larger. A good 1/2 " to 3/4 " (diagonally) which is a lot on a tiny 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.

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.

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 !!!

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.

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.

Straight Talk is part of the TracFone Network (as is Net10) which means they use which ever tower is near you be it Sprint, T-Moble, At&T, Verizion, etc. It also varies by phone models as some phones are GSM (SIM card) & others are CDMA (no SIM card). This phone is a CDMA model.

This phone uses Sprint native coverage only ...no roaming. Make sure you have good Sprint coverage before ordering this phone.

Here's the native coverage map if you are interested (copy-and-paste);

Uncheck both the 4G boxes.
