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.

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.

Question

is this a cdma phone

I need to know if this a CDMA phone because I heard that CDMA phones are about to become obsolete in 12/31/14...so it would be pointless to buy one

...in addition, I'm now hearing that many Verizon CDMA phones will have the ability to be upgraded to VoLTE so it's all the more reason against not buying a CDMA phone just because in another few years, Verizon plans to convert their entire network to VoLTE.

And, like I was saying, you'll probably want a new phone by the time CDMA is entirely phased out.

answer 2
machine4966, this is a CDMA phone using the Verizon native netowrk.

However, what you heard about CDMA being phased out by the end of the year is ENTIRELY false!!! Yes, it will eventually be phased out but Verizon and Sprint (the two CDMA carriers in the U.S.) have hundreds of thousands of CDMA phones out there right now and are continuing to sell them as we speak.

VoLTE (which will replace Verizon's CDMA) will start rolling out later this year. However, it will be several years before the transition is complete. I read somewhere that it could be 2021 before the transition is completely done.

I would definitely not let this stop you from purchasing a Verizon phone, or a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon (like this one), or any CDMA phone whether it uses Verizon or Sprint because you will definitely want a new phone before the transition is complete. Most people do not keep their phones more than two years, if that.

I agree with tidbitonebox. Generally, I would want the most up-to-date OS as I could get (for the same money).

Ice Cream Sandwich is better as it is more updated with improvements. It is almost a year newer than Gingerbread.

So in my opinion, the answer to your question is NO.

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.
