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.

if you have a windows phone or able to connect via USB cable, you can SYNC to outlook. Then Export the File as a CSV then import to Gmail.
Assuming your phone does not have an SD card, you most likely can not do this.

You might want to give the Phone make model before asking questions about how to use it?

What you can do however, is manually add the contacts to gmail, and login to gmail using the phone and allow it to sync. That is the simplest way.

Question

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.

Question

I am having problems with the keyboard. When rotating from vertical to horizontal to text, the keyboard displays letter couplets, not single letters.

This only recently started and I cannot find a way to fix it. The display also looks different in the vertical position. The letters look larger and have changed to a white backdround.

When the keyboard pops up click on the wrench icon. Then select "Languages and settings" Then click selected language (which is most likely English). Select keyboard input and make sure that keyboard is the only one checked off of all the selections. Reduced keyboard is what displays the letter couplets

In the area where it says "Type to compose" press and hold down until the screen pops up that says "Edit text" and "Input method". Select "Input Method", then select Android keyboard". That will switch it back to the keyboard you're use too.

As far as when the phone rotates... changing the keyboard should fix that issue as well, but if you find that you like the "white background" with the XT9 Text Input selected, all you have to do is change the keyboard setting. Below where you compose the message there will either be ">>" or two other icons plus "<<". Select the one that looks like a keyboard with a line diagonally through it. That will change it back & forth between a regular keyboard & the grouped letters keyboard.

Dear Anonymous,

No, you can not make your internal processor bigger.

On this phone it is 600MHz

Any chance by mistake that you are talking about memory.....
yes you can. With a bigger/larger Gb MicroSC card. This phone will accommodate up to 32Gb.

Most of the Straight Talk Android phones use Sprint towers, but this one uses AT&T towers. The Galaxy Proclaim uses Verizon towers.
