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.

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.

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.

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).

I have seen other people with cases for this phone, but I don't know where they got them, so there are cases, you just have to know where to look. I don't believe that Wal-Mart sells cases that fit this phone, mostly they have standard cases that you have to take the phone out of to use or cases for the iphone, that seems to be all anyone carries these days.

Yes, when I owned one briefly with Virgin Mobile, I found a really cool carbon fiber designed Fishbone style one on Ebay for pretty cheap. I also had a leather case that the phone slid in and out of that clipped on to the side of my pants. Btw, The Optimus Zip is also known as the Optimus Q or the Optimus Slider. Buying covers for any of these will fit as they are all the same phone just branded differently. I see there are many available on both Ebay and Amazon if you are interested in purchasing online. I'm sure that there are cases in store as well, though the prices are usually more expensive.

The phone doesn't have a front camera on it. Also Netflix is a very heavy app for memory and the Zip only has about 150mb. Both apps can be installed but won't work properly. As soon as I installed Netflix, it errored and said there wasn't enough memory to run.

Question

an asscociate explained that you need to check on the box for either a v or an s. How can we be sure we are getting the V?

V is for Verizon, which we were told would be better than the S, for Sprint. We really want to order the V.

This phone does not do S. So when you buy it it will have a V in the corner. You can be sure by using your eyeballs and brain and read the box to see the V and you will be all set and a happy camper
