I don't believe it's either. G stands for generation, in case you didn't know. I have reviewed this phone and I'll say it again. I see this as a hybrid phone that has some smart phone qualities and some "cheap as they go" type phone qualities. It has wifi, which is nice, although I have yet to use it since I've only had the phone a month. It takes ok pictures and videos, which is a step up from my old cheap phone. It isn't like the expensive smartphones with companies like Verizon or AT&T. But it's a nice little phone.

I have both sent and received picture texts. However, my niece has an iphone and tries to send me pictures in the 600 B range (size) and it won't accept it. It keeps trying to download the picture and can't. However, she sent me a short video and it did accept that.

With Straight Talk, this phone runs on the AT&T towers. All Straight talk phones that have a "G" work on the GSM networks and use a sim card as opposed to those that have a "C" and work on the CDMA networks as with Verizon.

how to set alert for incoming text message

To change the alert type (vibration/sound) and ringtone Select "Menu" then "Settings" then "Sound Profile." You should then go to the profile you want to use (probably "Normal") and select "Edit." You should now see all the settings you may wish to change separated into 3 tabs: "Call" "Message" and "Phone." To change alerts for text, go to "Message."

You can go to the Samsung website and download a much more detailed manual that will explain the procedure much better than I can here.

If you had a hard case for this phone would it prevent it from making 911 calls?

Can a hard case help prevent it from dialing 911?

answer 1
I use a hard case and lock the keys and this seems to keep it from calling 911. I was just locking the keys and putting it in my pocket, which was apparently not safe. I also tried the hard case without locking the keys, and that didn't work. But so far (fingers crossed), it has not dialed 911 while in a hard case with the keys locked.

answer 2
I am going to answer my own question, sort of. I had an old calculator that had a hard case. I use this to keep my phone in. It fits perfect and I haven't had any problems with the 911 calls, so far. Hopefully this will continue to be true.

Autocorrect...how do I change it back to just text?

I don't know what I did but all the sudden I have autocorrect and I can't seem to find out how to change it back to just texting. I try typing in Lalaloopsy (cartoon for my granddaughter) and everything but that name comes up. I just want to text the letters I put in and nothing else. Thanks.

To change this setting, open a new text message via "Create Message," then select "Options," then "Text Mode," then "Multitap." If you ever want to change back, you go to the same menu and select "T9 Predictive Text."

answer 2
Once again I'm answering my own question. I stumbled across this by accident. Go to 1. Create Message. Click on Create message. Click on Text mode. Press select. The box comes up on the right hand side with these options: 1. T9predictive text, 2. Numeric, 3. Symbols. I must have clicked on Predictive text and so change from predictive to multitap and it's back to typing in whatever letters you put there instead of predicting what you were going to type.

Question

why doesn't wifi always connect?

I have no problems connecting to wifi in homes. I went to our community center where I know my tablet works and even when I put the password it I'm knocked off on the phone. I was just in a Lowe's Home improvement with free wifi and when I tried to connect, once again it wouldn't let me on. Is there some kind of setting I need to change? Help!!! Do some places have a "block" on cell phone wifi?

We actually bought a router and now have wifi at home. I still had problems connecting until my husband found that we had to insert some kind of number in it and then it worked.

I think some versions of wifi are not supported by this phone. I have had the same problem. If it's a network you've previously connected with, turning the phone off and back on may help, but I think some networks are simply not compatible (maybe too new?).
