I see two questions and don't know which is under this reply, so ill answer them both. The service comes with unlimited minutes so, yes $45 gets you unlimited talk, text messages and (supposedly) 2 GB of data, try not to go over 200 MB a day though.

I have bought an extended battery, i found it on amazon with a capacity of 2400 mAh for around 30 bucks, it is for the Samsung illusion but they are the exact same phone. be sure to get the option with the bigger back
panel.

The $45 Unlimited plan includes everything. Unlimited calling, unlimited text messages and roughly 2gb of data per month.

You can buy an extended battery for this device also.
answered 2 years, 9 months ago

answer 5
$45 is unlimited all services -

all though the internet data is rumored to be restricted to 100MB a day or up to 2GB a month data use. which is very reasonable compared to data package prices with other providers.

There is a extended battery you can purchase if look for a Samsung illusion (its the same phone just Verizon branded) extended battery.

if do simple task keeping tabs on battery drain apps and settings or use a good battery save app you wont need a extended battery .. i get around 3 day use on a single charge which i am happy with. hope this helps

Yes this phone is wifi enabled but has conflicts if both wifi and 3g is enabled at the same time. This does not allow hotspot nor tethering and is restricted to 100MB a day and 2GB a month as per the fine print.

No, but some apps require internet which you can turn on your unlimited data for that.

If you plan to do a lot of video and audio streaming then you would need WiFi access.

No you don't.

WiFi is just a way to help keep your data usage down when you are at home, out and about and able to connect to hotspots, and the like.

This phone has access to the Google Play store, and the app for that is included. You just need a gmail account.

There is no additional plan needed.

Google play has over 450,000 apps and this phone is compatible with over 99% of them such as Angry Birds, Slotomania, and more.

Im not positive on what you are asking

This is the exact same phone and its on the same network "verizon" and its $30 or more cheaper per month , you get unlimited talk text and data all though i think the data is restricted to 2gb a month from what i have read which is still a better offer

as far as apps - that has to do with google on any andriod phone and nothing to do with the phone provider , you just need a google account and your good to go on any andriod phone, add all the apps you want.
hope this helps

You have to forward text messages via email to another email. I'm pretty sure you touch the message until it vibrates a tiny bit and it should show options to forward.

Be sure to keep the number you want to port active until the port is complete. I ported my Landline number to my Proclaim--it took 2 days! (Very good for a Landline port!) The guys at my Walmart Wireless store were SO HELPFUL getting me set up and going with StraightTalk!! They were Godsends! If you have a Walmart Wireless store in your Walmart--they will help you get started and answer your questions.

answer 5
If you have another carrier, such as Verizon or AT&T, you will want to call them to retrieve your account number and pin. Please bear in mind that your number MUST be active in order to port it.

After you have purchased this phone, go to the Straight Talk website and choose activation. Put the dot in "transfer number from another carrier" and enter the information that is required.

After you have gone through all the activation processes with this phone, it will become active with your current number, usually within an hour or two.

If you are going from one ST phone to another, you will simply want to choose the appropriate button again during the activation from the web. Your current ST number will then be moved this phone.
