I believe that you add it online through the straight talk website. You can add airtime there through cards purchased at Walmart or directly charged to a credit card.

Question

Can i use this phone to get a WI-FI signal for other devices?

I just purchased a tablet for my daughter and niece for x-mas. We live in the country. My niece does not have internet or cable/satilite. (and my brother can not afford it) My Aunt bought this modle phone for her. I read on the tablet Q&A that you can use some phone as a WI-FI connection for other devices. Is this one of them, if so how do I enable that feature? If not what type of phone can be used in this capacity and my Aunt will take it back and trade for that modle. though she really wanted this phone. thank you for your attention.

Look for phones with "Hotspot" feature. This is does not have it.

Yes and no. The Android system is capable, but Straight Talk's data usage rules do not permit it. FoxFi is a great free app for this, but use on Straight Talk at your own peril.

No, you cannot tether to this phone.

Straight Talk terms of service does not allow it.

By doing so, you will risk having your phone shut off by Straight Talk, possibly having your number blacklisted as well. Straight Talk will not refund you for lost service time.

Lastly with hot spot and tether use, Straight Talk go as far as blocking you from using Straight Talk in the future.

From the terms of service is this: Term 7. STRAIGHT TALK UNLIMITED PLANS CANNOT BE USED FOR: (1) access to the Internet, intranets, or other data networks except as the device’s native applications and capabilities permit, or (2) any applications that tether your device to a laptop or personal computer other than for the use of Wireless Sync(cloud computing, checkbook sync, etc).

Try this one, Samsung S390G. It's sold here.

Do a search, I've seen it bundled with 1 year of time and 1200 minutes for use with the cheaper tracfone pay as you go plans.

You cannot. Straight Talk terms of service forbids tethering and hot spot use.

If you are looking for tether and hot spot use, you will more than likely need a contract phone with tether/hot spot use options. Those options do cost more.

I am not sure if other prepaid services...Boost, Virgin, etc. offer hot spot tethering use.

It sure will. With the cost savings over a contract, you will definitely save even more by buying the 3/6 month service agreements.

More than likely it does have notification sounds for missed calls and texts. Not sure how many times they will sound.

You could check Google Play for apps that have these features also.

I am sorry that I cannot recommend any apps as I have the Proclaim and I can see my notifications on the lock screen.

If you get Verizon in your area, this phone will work. It is a CDMA phone that uses Big Red's network.

Do not trust the zip code search on the top of this page. It is not accurate at all.
