Question

what does unlimited service plan mean? down on the specs, it states 5.5 h talk time. what does it mean?

asked 1 year, 9 months ago

answer 1
The 'unlimited plan' is simply the $45 phone card you buy every month and it includes unlimited talk minutes and data (what you'd use for anything besides calls).

Where the specs list 5.5 hours talk time, that is in reference to battery life. That means if the battery is fully charged, you'll have 5.5 hours of total talk time before the battery runs out. That's only if you're doing nothing but talking though.

The standby of 16 days is how long the battery can go without being charged when the phone is on, but not being used. Hope this helps!

answer 2
5.5hour of talk time means that you can talk on the phone from a fresh full battery for 5.5 hours of time provided you do not have wifi or other power consuming features on.

Unlimited is not actually unlimited. you get 100MB a day and 2GB a month data. You do get unlimited minutes but FCC regulates it to 10,000 minutes a month. Standard text messages are unlimited.

Unlimited service plan - means you get a unlimited amount of minutes,text messages and data ( data is limited to 2GB per month though)

5.5 h talk time : means you could talk on your phone up to 5+ hours before it goes dead and needs charged.

answer 4
Unlimted means there are no limits to the amount of calls you make/receive, minutes used.

All text message are unlimited. No overages.

The only limits really that are on this phone comes down to data usage. Straight Talk limits are rumored, though not confirmed at 100mb per day, 2GB per 30 day period.

Straight Talk reserves the right to throttle your speeds, turn off your service for "abuse" of the network.

Remember, they are only leasing space on the towers from Verizon, they do not own them.

If you're using it with Straight Talk, no. If you look on other forums you'll see that they will shut down your phone and it will become useless. I think they consider it a violation of terms.

answer 4
No it cannot be. No Straight Talk Android can be tethered/hot spotted. It is against the Terms of Service.

If they catch you hot spotting/tethering they will immediately terminate your service without refund. Straight Talk can even go as far as blacklisting your phone so it could never be activated again, essentially making the phone a brick.

1. The 18 month extended warranty program is through a company called NEW. You have to go through them for any warranty issues. There are instructions in the pamphlet that you must follow for the warranty to be affective. You must keep your receipt and be prepared to ship off your phone for repairs. Do not try to replace the phone through Wal-Mart because they are not responsible for the enforcement of the extended warranty. They only act as agents of the NEW company (which is under the Asurion umbrella) and sell their product.

2. Wal-Marts return policy for prepaid phones is 15 days. This policy was 30 days but changed around January of 2011. There are signs that are above electronics that state the 15 day return policy for prepaid cellphones. Also, in customer service, and in connection center. Now I am aware that some stores choose to not follow the correct policy for whatever reason, but I am here to tell you its 15 days. With a receipt by the way. If you get lucky at one store and get away with returning a product within 30 days just understand that not every store is aware or follows the companies policy. It is very confusing and I for one hope that people will get on the same page about the return policy. Anyways, I hope this helps.

You have 30 days from date of purchase to buy the 18 month protection plan. I asked at Walmart Wireless store. AND I read it in the protection plan description. Here it is, I will copy & paste:
"If you have the original Walmart product receipt, you can buy this Protection Plan to cover any eligible product up to 30 days after you've bought it."
