the advanced service is included. it helps the government track you accurately and allows 911 to better help you when the tower supports the advanced services on the phone.

That means the phone uses GPS satellites to determine your location.

There is no additional cost to use it. This device has a built in Navigation app that is pretty simple to use. It features speakable turn by turn directions.

Only thing you need to do is open Navigation. If GPS within the phone is not turned on, the app will remind you to enable it. Then speak or type where you want to go and that is all that is needed. If you go out of route on the Navigation, it will reroute.

There is an app for it. I've forgotten the name but I believe if you just go to the Play Store and type in "record phone calls," it will give you the apps for that purpose.

Go to Google Play and search "record calls" or "call recorded." I downloaded an app called "record mic and calls" or something like that, and it works fine. You can hear both you and the other person, however the other person's voice isn't as loud as yours, but it still works good.

It's happened a couple times, usually when using Pandora (something that sucks a lot of bandwidth). It's a pain to have to call them to reset it everytime.

I'd recommend finding a wireless router to download from if you have a big file and see if it still acts up on you.

This is very simple really.

1. Turn on bluetooth on both devices.
2. Make one of the devices "discoverable," which will more than likely be the Proclaim.
3. "Search" for the phone on the other device, and once the devices are paired you can transfer your contacts, photos, and the like.

There are apps on Google Play to help you along with this too. Best one I have found for this is Bluetooth File Transfer.

On my old ST android, the ZTE Merit, I downloaded an app called "Bluetooth file transfer," and it works amazingly, which allowed me to bluetooth pictures between my android, which is no longer in service, and my normal U.S. Cellular contract slider phone (nothing fancy.) I'm not sure about contacts, but I know I have bluetoothed my contacts between my regular U.S.Cellular phones, so I'm sure you can do the same with an android. If you can't, I'm sure you can search "Bluetooth contacts transfer" or something like that in Google Play, and be able to do it.

Does this phone work outside of the united states?

Probably not.

Almost all phones/smart devices from American Movil, parent company of Straight Talk, Tracfone, Net10 are locked to service in the United States only.

You still may get service in Canada or Mexico right along the border until you get too far away from a Verizon tower and lose signal.

You can watch Youtube. Matter of fact, there is a Youtube app that comes on this phone.

I am not sure on the limitations of video. You will need to be wary of the caps that Straight Talk has in place. Those limits are rumored to be 100mb per day, 2gb per month.

Straight Talk allows you to do what the phone can natively do, such as through apps on Google Play.
