Question

Is the coverage area different with an android phone than a non android phone ?

answer 1
No, the coverage footprint is actually determined by the carrier being used rather than the OS (operating system) ..."Android" is the operating system of a phone.

Therefore, for example, an Android Straight Talk phone using AT&T (such as this one) will have a different coverage footprint than another Straight Talk Android phone using, Verizon, for instance.

Unfortunately, the phones Straight Talk sells are required to be used with Straight Talk plans while in the U.S. only and are essentially locked to be used on Straight Talk. This is as per their Terms and Conditions of Service.

Unfortunately, Facetime currently does not offer an Android version and is intended only for Apple products. I believe there are several "hacks" out there but most will require a front camera. This phone has only a rear camera.

There are Android applications that function like Facetime such as Skype, Google Hangouts, Viber, etc.

However, again, this phone has no front camera. It also operates at 3G speeds for mobile internet so isn't ideal for video calling applications unless using wi-fi that has higher speeds.

You can try swapping the SIM cards to see if it's recognized but I doubt it'll work. You'll probably need a new Tracfone SIM for it.

Mine is 2 years old and has NO flash. But you can adjust the sensitivity to work in low light conditions. It is easy to do and is a screen option before you take the photo.
