It comes with a 2gb sd card but if you're planning on downloading a lot of things I'd recommend buying something a little larger like a 4gb or 8gb.

Yes paula u will need to have a memory card to operate to use the phone to take pictures, play music or download any app's, because the phone only has a internal memory of 512MB which will be used for the inbuilt applications on the phone. You can expand the memory upto 32GB though.

Unfortunately system memory is used on internal memory of 156MB and cannot be expanded.
A few downloaded apps can be transferred to SD memory but not many, so be cautious about your app selections.
Most of the apps already on your phone are required and can't be removed.

jennasbug4 the phone only has 512MB RAM/512MB ROM as internal memory which will be used for the pre-installed app's on the phone. But u can use a memory card(SD card) and expand it upto 32GB.

When you face this issue, troubleshoot the device by turning off your phone,Press and hold “Vol+”, “Menu”, and “Power” key until the phone goes to recovery mode.Use “Vol+” and “Vol-“ to move the cursor up and down.Move cursor to “wipe data/factory reset”, press “Back” key to select it.Now move cursor down to “Yes – delete all user data” and press “Back” to select it.The data will be erased.The cursor will be on “reboot system now” at the end, so just press “Back” key to reboot the phone normally.Note: All user data will be completely cleared; the phone will be in a factory reset status.

It is my understanding that it is a violation of Straight Talk's Terms of Service to use a Straight Talk device as a hotspot.

Not sure why yours isn't already doing that. Mine does automatically. Try contacting Straight Talk customer service by dialing 611 from your handset, or contact your local Wal-Mart's Electronics department.

Dear MarceyM,

There are several way to find this. There is no need to do or fix anything on the phone.... :-)

The easiest way to see a "Missed Call" or that you have "VM", a text and/or updates is to look in the upper left top corner of the Touch Screen. (there will be icons up there showing all of this)

2. Tap/Touch the "Top" Center of the touch screen and drag your finger downward. (this will pull open a "pull down screen") This screen shows all of your missed calls, VM's, new texts and any updates that are needed/wanted.
