This phone is a CDMA phone, not a GSM so it will not accept sim card as required by T-mobile.

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.

Hope this helps!

Phone holds up to 16GB microSD card [must purchase this] - download from your computer by connecting them together and sending to file on phone.

I d/l ringtones from www.zedge.net - but faster to do with computer first then transfer to phone.

Yes on speakphone!

Check out WalMart or Straight Talk website and put the zip code where you are going to use this phone ... they will list the available phones for that zip code area!

Question

Permanently UNLOCK the phone?

The locking on this phone is driving me nuts. I have to unlock it again during a call just to get a dial pad...and that's just one reason. Can I set it so that it doesn't lock? I have tried every setting and tool I can find, and cannot find an answer anywhere. Your help is very much appreciated.

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...

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.
