Question

problems downloading photos to laptop?

I've had three phones now that would not download to my laptop and I thought the inclusion of the microSD would help.

I bought a microSD 16 GB card for this phone and still haven't gotten things from phone to computer / computer to phone ... thinking my computer [PC] card reader slots won't read this high number microSD card and the portable card reader, as well.

It works on the 2 GB cards I have for my old digital camera but won't read my 8 GB card I have for my new digital camera -- have to use USB cord from camera to PC to download pics.

Thought at first my card reader on PC went bad -- but put my old 2 GB in and it works.

Maybe someone can help me on this -- hoping I have helped you in some small way!

Yes, I was able to keep my existing phone number. The number you port to your new Straight Talk phone MUST still be active, and you will need to have your account number.

No, it does not come with minutes. You must buy minutes or one of their $30 or $45 plans. But those don't require you to have a contract.

No minutes are included with the phone purchase - you would need to purchase one of Straight Talk plans.

That depends of where you purchase it. If you purchase it from Walmart it doesn't come with minutes. If you purchase it from the Straight Talk website, all of their phones come bundled with a month of minutes (you chose the plan). You must purchase the two together. This is why I purchased my phone from Walmart. I only needed the phone as I already had my plan/mins in place.

It will accept a voice command, if you say "texting" it sends you to a text input screen. By the same token you can also ask it to dial a contact, by voice, and several other options; call to name or group, or say number to dial.

Yes, it does. Look under Tools and you will see Voice Command. Voice/sound recorder is just what it sounds like. You can made a recording of your voice like for a note or maybe a grocery list or perhaps record a sound like baby's first word.

Question

Does in auto-split long outgoing & incoming text messages?

I'm one step away from buying this phone but can't seem to find a definitive answer to a question.
When composing a long text message does the phone automatically split the message into multiple parts or is it necessary to write one message 160 characters, send it then create a new draft for part 2, etc.? Also the same for receiving long messages. Can they all be read in one continuous thread?

Thanks in advance!

Like others have said, it cuts off @ 160(which is really the only real negative for me with the cell), however I use the picture messaging when in a hurry because it allows 1000 characters on the text portion of the screen. 2 of my friends' messages do break in to parts when I receive long text from either - I would think that has to do with their service more than mine, since it doesn't do it for everyone.

Seems you have to send and start another.

I have reached the 160 and had to go back and delete some words or symbols.

Still learning texting & the new phone.

You can do both, and in addition to that it has a voice recognition option; you can say your contact name and it will dial it, if it's not sure about what you are asking to dial it will ask you for confirmation.
