I think you would enjoy this. The vib can be turned on and off. The ring tones are loud, but pleasant tunes . Best of luck and enjoy. Oh yes, go ahead and buy a 32 mini card for your apps. You will need the storage.

By default you cannot. There may be apps on Google Play that you can customize each home screen with.

Yes, I have already used up, what came with my card. I did however learned that when I took out the card to see where to put the replacement, that I lost my free apps. Not a problem, today was a learning day. You can buy a card up to a 32gbs. I am going to get one this week.

This phone includes a 4GB MicroSD card. You can try moving apps to the SDcard, but the real limitation is how pitiful the internal memory is on the phone. Not all apps are movable to the SDcard though.

Kinda stuck one way or another.

You may need to call the company, this happened to me today. I opted not to call. Had my son forward me a photo. It prompted me to downdown something on google. The first 24hours, it will take time to get to know your phone. Enjoy.

Getting 'memory full' error message. FRUSTRATED! Please read details...

Getting 'memory full' error message. Bought 16 gb card to remedy but still same problem. Phone showing almost entire sd card is free but still getting 'memory full.' Phone is set to automatically install on sd card and all apps that can be on the sd card are showing that they are on the sd card. BUT like I said the card is showing as almost empty. At my wits end! Don't know what to do!

Very small memory but the phone will have to have a system factory reset. StraightTalk will have to help you do this. It also wipes the memory clean so back everything you can to your SD card.

answer 2
Open the apps and make sure that they are on the SDcard. It should say "installed on SDcard." If it does not, then click the button that says "move to storage/SDcard."

If that option is greyed out and you cannot click, not sure what else to tell you. The internal memory on this phone is pathetic. Not enough storage for anything. Once the phone gets to around 20mb of free space, you will get that nagging message.
