For an Android, its very good. If I play with it alot and go online a lot and watch videos and talk a lot, i might have to charge during the day...for average use, it lasts me all day.

I have to charge mine every other day but only have to use my phone for recreation, if you are working on files and such, I imagine the battery life will disappoint you.

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.

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.

ST has three plans, this one will run on the $45 (unlimited talk, text and mobile web) or the $60 (unlimited nationwide and international talk, text and mobile web) You should always use a WIFI connection to stream or do big/a lot of downloads to avoid overusing data.

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.

Hi Stavely32,

I have bought several off of Ebay from a seller named Wireless_Mayhem.
I bought one that was a Rubber Hard Plastic. It does not get hot when charging the phone (run your phone out completely, then charge it off).
I bought another one that was a glossy hard plastic case, the phone got a little hot and the case was very hard to get off.
I liked the one I bought off of Ebay as this seller sells ones that are pre-cut perfectly to fit this phone. However, most covers that fit the ZTE Avail will fit the Merit.....
