The phone boots up with tracfone as the splash screen, and it has prepaid submenu accessible from the touchscreen desktop where you can add airtime using a pin number. Beyond that I haven't actually tried to add airtime to the cell with other than straighttalk online account.

If you're asking if you can set it to 24 hour military time display, the answer is yes; I just did it to confirm. Mine is now on a 24 hour clock.

the BLUE usa... AT&T not Verizon

Not quite sure what you mean by... red USA or blue USA - you just buy a 30-day phone service card - no matter what phone you purchase.

If it has C [as this one does] they operate off Verizon towers.

If it has a G - they operate off AT&T towers.

My understanding on towers - you are not getting the "real" Verizon or AT&T signals - it is their "pre-paid signal" for the Straight Talk phones or any other pre-paid phones you may purchase elsewhere.

Hope this helps!

Keyboard

When texting, can you have the Qwerty keyboard show on your touchscreen to type and use it instead of the slide-out?

yes, once you add the person you are sending a text to, touch the screen and the keyboard will come up however, it is not qwerty, it resembles the number keypad so the slide out is easier.

Question

Cursor movement with touchscreen texting?

Have this phone and like it, but one issue driving me crazy. When writing a text on the touchscreen with the qwerty keyboard tucked in, is it possible to move the cursor left and right over typed words? There should be left, right, up and down arrow keys and I am baffled. Of course I can open the qwerty keyboard and move the cursor, but there are many times I'd like to write a text on the touchscreen without opening the keyboard. Thanks for any help!

Thank you pickySandy I did figure that out. Eh, it works so-so ... there's ample room for arrows to control cursor movement and I really wish they were available. Frankly I would prefer not a touchscreen but a keypad on the front (and the qwerty keyboard) but unfortunately right now such a phone is not available from StraightTalk as a "C" (Verizon towers) version -- the G versions are horrible service in my area.

I have the 505c and I don't believe you can do what you are asking.

I put my fingernail or pencil edge where I want to have the cursor.

I was able to transfer most of my other straight talk phone contacts to this phone by pairing the phones with bluetooth. It was a bit complicated to do it that way and I don't remember the exact steps but it can be done.

Question

How do you "simply" turn the ringer volume down or off on this phone.

If you use the side volume buttons it only sets the speaker phone volume. Looked all through the manual and I cannot find a simple way to turn the ringer volume up and down and especially a quick way to turn the ringer volume off for meetings and such. Any help would be appreciated.

the side button operate the MASTER VOLUME and turn the volume from high to off. only if you touch the OFF/ON button next to the word speakerphone does it operate that. Or you can go to settings, sound profiles, master volume but you will get the same menu as the side buttons. so to answer your question... the side buttons are the fastest way and/or you can touch the volume bars once the screen pops up. hope this helps you out...

Go to...
Settings
Sound Profiles
Master Volume [adjust here]
OR
side up/down volume on phone left side

Might have speakerphone set to ON - check that

You can turn OFF phone either way

I have this phone - hope this helps!

I couldn't find any cases where I live, so I ended up buying one on ebay shortly after I got the phone last spring. So far it's held up well.

I, myself, have had this ?

The stores don't seem to carry covers for the phones they sell - bummer, to say the least!

I have looked on Amazon.com and was directed to other companies but haven't ordered yet - don't like to deal with smaller companies not knowing what you might get into.

Also was told my local mall has them [at the kiosk places] but haven't checked them out yet.

If you are wanting "screen" protective covers - my WalMart store has them.
