This is a great question ... many people don't fully understand 3G... 3G ONLY refers to the speed of the internet... all voice calls and txt messages have nothing to do with 3G... If you don't have a 3G signal you can still make and receive calls and send texts (1xx)... and yes, you can hook up to your highspeed wi-fi (which actually is faster than 3G)...

Yes, you could connect to wi-fi even without a 3g phone signal. But, it would make more sense to get a phone that provides a 3g signal in your area...why buy a phone that won't make phone calls?

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.

I went through 4 different ST phones before I found one I liked. Each time I returned the one I was unhappy with to Walmart within the 15 days. But before I returned it I purchased a new one and transferred the service. Never lost a minute of airtime. No problems with the returns.

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...

Very hard to find a case/cover for this model because of the slide-out QWERTY keyboard but they can be had... Try Amazon.com...

You can also browse the kiosks at your local shopping mall. They sells tons of phone covers and other accessories. Just present them with your phone and they do the rest to find the right cover. And you typically save more money then you would online.

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 !!!

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.
