Yes they do. So you text person A and then text person B....there will be different threads for each conversation. You will easily see this from the messaging app.

How to switch current plan to a new phone

I am interested in upgrading my current phone. What do I need to do to switch the plan to the new phone and can I keep my existing phone number? I do currently have the Straight Talk 45 plan. I need to know what to do before I purchase the new phone. Also, is there an upgrade discount at all??

There is no upgrade discount.

Purchase your new phone and call the Straight Talk (800) number.

Tell the CSR that you want to transfer your Straight Talk number to a new Straight Talk phone.

All you need to do is activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Walmart cannot do phone number transfers, only new activations for Straight Talk.

Click Activate >> Transfer Number
Put the dot in "Transfer My Straight Talk Service"
Go through all activation steps

Service time will transfer to this phone from what you have left.

Simple as pie to do. But sorry, there is no upgrade discount.

Heres the thing....you have to download them. They are free and they work great! Make you sure buy a larger micro mini card, what comes with it is a teaser and you will love it, but will want and need more space to hold your apps.

There should be a list of wifi in your area... Example lets say, you call your wifi Papasmurf...than you need to remember what your password is and enter it on your phone. It's a one time set up. If you forgot your password, then call your interest server.

go to settings, ( then connection, wifi, or internet) you will have to enter the password for your home wireless router.(password is sometimes printed on the router. ) In stores and malls, the connection probably is unsecured and doesn't need a password . You can set your phone to connect to wifi when it is available. Then, whenever you are at home or on the go and you are near a connection, your wifi will automatically connect.

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!
