Yes usually you can port in an existing number from a working phone account that you plan to replace this with. easy way is to take your account info with you and see the walmart associate in the electronics dept.....They always handle that stuff in my local store...
That being said...there are a few cell companies that kinda own there block of numbers, and it is impossible to take there number to another cell provider

You will need to contact your current carrier for your account number and pin.

You can then use the website and choose the appropriate activation method, one of which is transferring your number from another carrier. This is why you need those numbers.

When porting your number over, it can take up to 72 hours for things to become totally active, though 99% of the time it is only a matter of an hour or two.

Backup your contacts to your SD card or email. You can then copy them back into your phone or from your email.

Very simple and painless process.

I have a Youtube App to watch it. I also watch Netflix and TED both via their own apps.
Terms of service does not consider streaming video to be "data" so only watch over a WIFI connection.

YES! This is MY first Android and it is EASY to work with!! Luckily I have a son to answer questions now & then but basically I have had very few problems figuring anything out. Google can answer ALOT of questions. And if you post a question on the StraightTalk FACEBOOK page--there are TONS of really knowledgeable people there who reply instantly with answers (VERY HELPFUL!!).

Clearly Define Speech to Text

Does speech to text mean that it will read aloud your texts to you so you don't have to look at them? Or does it mean I can say words in a text message and they will appear on my screen?

Speech to text is for speaking in say a text message instead of typing. Can also be used for dialing a contact or saying a number you want to dial.

Phone will not speak text messages.

Lots easier to use. I keep forgetting to say comma, period, exclamation point and the like for punctuation. Oops!

Great fun though when the phone totally interprets what you said wrong by changing a word or two. Lol!

Question

What is "Swiping?" Does this phone support that feature?

I have seen/heard a lot about "swiping" but I am unsure what exactly that is. I would also like to know if this phone supports that feature.

answer 2
Swype is a kind of text input to where you "swipe" your finger over the virtual keyboard. You stop on the letter that you want and then move to the next. Your finger when using this method does not leave the screen.

With practice, this can be faster than actually tapping on the keys for some users.

This phone does support Swype.

To enable it on this phone go to Settings - Language & Keyboard - Swype Settings, and then choose Swype. To revert back to the Samsung keyboard, follow the above steps again and choose Samsung keyboard.

I think you may have a bad phone. I can hear my husband's phone calls from across the room when his volume is all the way up, and it is NOT on speaker. I would definitely check into returning the phone for another. Good luck.
