If you mean a text message notification, no. The phone will only do one notification sound.

Now you can set different ringtones to your contacts though for a incoming call. You can do that through editing that specific contact information.

Because it's a lousy phone! Try removing apps you don't use or moving any apps that will allow you to move them over to your storage card. If that fails you're in the same boat I'm in....looking for a new phone. Wish I'd never bought this one.

Probably not as the phone will not know which headset to send a call to, even if the 3.5mm jack is audio output only.

Just my thoughts on this as it would be something that I probably never would try anyway.

If it's already been sent, you need to delete the photos you've saved from your gallery that you don't want anymore, and then delete the text thread. It'll be gone then

If you get that message that means it has downloaded and you should open up either your gallery or your downloads file on the phone to view the picture/video

This phone uses AT&T GSM SIM Card, Global System for Mobile Communications. You should be able to go to Europe and purchase a sim card use it. I dont know it the international time works or not?

I have not personally tried this. But that is what GSM is suppose to do.

Change your keyboard to the Android keyboard by holding down where it says "type to compose". There isn't a spell checker on that setting.

Yes you can. Just be wary that using a live wallpaper will cause battery drain quicker than if you have a regular wallpaper.

There are battery apps that help you manage your battery as well on Google Play.

No you don't.

But please do not try to tether or use this device as a hotspot. It is against Straight Talk's terms of service.
