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.

I find that highly unlikely. Verizon is the go to source for droids on Straight Talk.

ST has the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and the new LG Optimus Zip, formerly known as the LG Enlighten. Both these devices run on Verizon.

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

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.

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.

Charging/USB ports have been pretty much standardized on Android devices.

You will need a microUSB cable.
