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.

Can you purchase extra data?

answer 1
No because you get "unlimited web browsing" data with the $45 30-day plan (which is the only plan you can use with this phone). You are not supposed to use for streaming. In reality, you are fine if you don't go over 2GB of data per month. Past that and you are threatened with disconnection of service due to excessive use. Some have said that they will cut you off after 2 GB.

There is no need to purchase extra data as the month to month plan is all inclusive with unlimited talk, text, and data.

On a side note, unlimited with ST isn't really unlimited on the data. Users have reported the limit is about 100mb per day, 2gb total for a month. I have came no where close to using this. Last month, I had 493mb of data usage over the course of the 30 days.

The monthly service plan is all you will need for this phone.

This phone works on the Verizon network which has greater, i.e. larger, network area than Sprint. This is an android phone so apps are the same from google. You can use the built-in browser or download Firefox, etc. I have found this phone to work in areas of the country with Straighttalk where Sprint has no phone or data service.
