You can do add, wallpaper, search, notifications, home setting, and settings. You can also call the company and see if they will send you a link to download the mini services guide, that is very helpful.

That tells the browser what version of the webpage to load.

If you to to www.google.com and have "Android" checked, it loads the mobile Google site.

If you go to www.google.com and have "Desktop" checked, it requests and loads the full desktop site... and so on.

Yes, you should have 3G internet access available when you are not around WiFi.

Did you purchase the $45/month unlimited card and ACTIVATE the phone through Straight Talk? You can't just purchase the phone and expect it to have CDMA service. It will work with only WiFi, but you need to have the service to use it outside the home.

If you have activated - do you see a 3G icon in the top bar? If not, try toggling "Mobile Data" on/off from the Wireless settings in "SETTINGS"

It should be able to connect to Verizon's 3G network. Have her look in the phone settings, under Wireless & Networks. Make sure Airplane Mode is disabled, and scroll down to the bottom to Mobile Networks. Make sure that "use packet data" is checked.

You should be able to. All you should have to do is log into the straight talk website and then activate the phone you want to use and that should deactivate your current phone. You'll have to probably power down and then power back on the newly activated phone.

You can switch back between Straight Talk CDMA Huawei brand (and other brands too) phones, very easily done. Make sure both phones are registered with your Straight Talk online account. Then turn on both phones. From the Straight Talk website menu select Support, select Upgrade, follow the prompts to re-activate your phone by transfer.

If you have a GSM phone I don't think you can do the online transfer without calling Customer Service and having them send a new SIM. Explain to them you want to keep your telephone # and see if that can be done.

Question

Do I need to purchase a service plan when I purchase a phone?

I already have a Slider Straight Talk phone. It's starting to send my texts while I'm still texting. Now it's getting worse. It turns off and on by itself. Blinks off & on. I want to buy this phone but I don't need the service plan. When I receive this new phone I want to switch the service plan I have just purchased today to the new phone. That's my question. "Can I purchase this phone without purchasing a service plan?"

As long as the phone and service plan are the same you can do anything you want as far as buying a new phone or switching service plans.

answer 2
biddie4ever, the answer is YES but only if you are currently using (just purchased) one of the UNLIMITED Plans.

This phone requires the use of the $45 Unlimited Plan (or the multiples of 90-, 180-, or 365-day blocks) or the $60 Unlimited International Plan. If you just purchased one of these plans, you can just transfer this new phone to the remaining time you have on your account. This phone will not work with the $30 Plan, however.

THEREFORE, if your current plan is the $30 Plan, then you will forfeit any remaining time that you might have left and will have to start a new Unlimited Plan from scratch. If this is the case, it will probably make more sense to wait and activate the new phone as close to your current "service end date" as possible so as not to waste the money on the $30 Plan you just purchased as Straight Talk does not give refunds on plans already purchased.
