GPS Capabilities

What are the "Advanced GPS Capabilities" this phone offers? Does it have voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation? If so, is this service included in the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan or is there an additional charge for the GPS Navigation service?

At no extra cost you get voice guided turn by turn navigation. You even speak to it and it will do exactly as you ask. Speak an address and that is where it takes you. My wife uses it everywhere and it works great.

Does this work with Google Maps Navigation?

Does this phone work with the Google Maps Navigation Android app via ST's data connection (3G?)? I heard that the GPS features work only over WiFi, but I'm hoping that isn't true!

Your Google Maps, Map View, and GPS all run thru your 3G(technically), but in order for some of these to work(and it will tell u what to turn on) u will need to have on ur WiFi & GPS for it to gauge your position and/or location.

*Keep in mind that when these are on you are Lowjacked(constant tracking). Turn them off when you are not using them.

Yes, we had an AT & T landline and had the Walmart Associate start the process to port the landline AT& T number to the cell. Everything went smoothly!

answer 2
Yes you can.

You will need to contact AT&T to get your account number and pin.

Then use "transfer number from another company" on the website when you activate this phone. Input those numbers during activation.This device will then become active with your current number. Your AT&T phone will pretty much cease to work once you go through the activation and porting processes.

99% of the time, you will have a full functioning phone within an hour or two.

Low storage space and a lot of preloaded garbage aps that you can't get rid of seems to be a problem with most of the lower priced androids - ZTE included. Go in to "manage your aps" and you can move a lot of what you have to the SD card to open space. Past that, you'll need to look online for instructions on how to remove some of the preloaded stuff.

This is only a notification prompt when the phone gets below 20mb of free space.

Continue to do as you have with clearing ram and closing programs.

Also restart your phone.

When I had the AT&T version of this phone, I simply uninstalled the updates to Maps, Youtube, Voice Search, anything Google and it left with me with around 50mb of unused space. You could also try to move as many things to the SDcard as you can through an app called app2sd.

If you don't use the GPS, that could be used as a solution.

Yes, easy to do.

The telephone # has to be an active one, don't tell your current provider you're switching.

Buy the new phone. Buy the $45 plan. Go to www.straighttalk.com to switch your number.

If you're telephone # is already inactive you will take a random telephone # based on the zip code you provide. This device has coverage with AT&T and TMobile.

Using the picture Walmart used:

The 3G symbol is the type of mobile web. There is also a plain E when you are in EDGE, which is 2G speeds.

The next one to the right is the signal level.

Third one, next to the clock is the battery level.
