answer 1
yes you can speed dial,sorta.have this phone for 5 months.here is how i do it:hold finger on blank part of any of the screens you want to set up a speed dial,home or any of the other 4 can be used,click add shortcut after menu pops up,then click on Direct Dial or Direct Message.then click name from list..will place a icon on your screen..Direct Dial will automatically call that contact when clicked and will have a small green phone with icon.Direct Message will open texting screen for that person when clicked and will have a small chat bubble with icon.will even show the picture of person if you have one set.works better than the old pick a # 1-10 for speed dial.and the added benefit of direct texting some one.hope this helped!

The Cell phone store on the internet has some hard cases. the soft ones are not available as far as I can find. But you can use the Samsung case for the phone that is the same size only problem is the on off button is concealed by the case but because it is a soft case you can still press the button through the case.

If you are looking for a case for any straight talk phone, try Amazon.com I got a case for my huawei ascend y from there and it only cost me about $4. Its the only place I have been able to find cases for phones from straight talk...hope this helps..

Question

Can I buy more internal memory to upgrade? (RAM?)

Hi! I know this phone has very little internal memory, allowing for only a few apps to be loaded if they can't go to the SD card. My question is, can I upgrade/add to that internal memory?

Is the internal memory the same as RAM? I've seen sites that sell a couple gigs of RAM for HUAWEI phones for under $10, but I am not sure if that is what I need to solve the storage problem. It seems like if that were possible, someone would have mentioned it on this site. I've read all prior questions and many have the same issue as I do.

If it does have that by default you can try getting an app from Google Play that will block this function.

My Game Applications keep crashing is there any solution or do I need to return the device?

Nothing that you are doing. A smartphone is essentially a mini computer. Just like an actual computer things freeze. That is what is happening. You can advise the app creator by leaving them feedback on the Google Play rating system.

Yes. Go on your home computer and on your search page type in the name of your phone and model number. You will get several sites to choose from. ebay will also show up and there are several hundred kinds to choose from. The price range is from around five to about eight bucks. It will come in different colors. They will have the two piece one to protect the screen and the back and also in one piece. Some will be made out of hard rubber, and others in soft rubber and carbon fiber. I ordered myself some today. Even offers free shipping. There are so many to choose from, you will have trouble deciding on which one you want! From camo, clear, red, pink, yellow, purple. It is endless! I hope this helps.
