No it does not. You will need to purchase a service card for activation. If you are already a Straight Talk customer, service time and days left will transfer over to this phone upon activation.

depends on your location to cell tower. I get great signal reception almost everywhere I am, but where I work I get no signal bars inside the building. So, I guess it just depends on where you are. I know that you can download for free a signal booster app on the Playstore.

No one can tell you one way or the other. Location of towers, distance to them, interference and a whole slew of other factors come into play.

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.

No.Verison does NOT allow you to use this phone as a hot spot.IF you need a phone for that,this is not the phone or plan,for you.
Hope you find one that will.

answer 2
No, and even if you got an app from Google Play, you will still be infringing on Straight Talk's Terms of Service that says hot spot and tethering use is not allowed.

If caught tethering...Straight Talk can terminate your service on the spot without refund, blacklist your phone, and even go as far as preventing you from using Straight Talk plans in the future.

Is it really worth the risk to make your phone useless?

Question

What if the phone quits working

I've had this phone for 7 months and all of a sudden it quit working. The battery is charged, phone comes on, but thats it. Can't call or txt, the screen is black with a green circle going around and around. I called the service number, can't understand the person to well. He said there was an outage of sprint in this area for the last three days???? They haven't helped me at all. If its still under warranty where do i send the phone back.

I paid $9 at Walmart for a service contract. It covers things for two years. If you paid with your credit card call and see if your phone is covered under them, in any way. Sounds like your phone may be been dropped. Either way best of luck!

First, this phone does not use Sprint. It uses Verizon.

You are within the warranty period, so you will want to call Straight Talk and speak to Customer Service, as much as they are hard to understand, they should replace your phone.

In the stores you will want to look on the boxes. Lower left corner on the front you will see codes.

CDMA-V = Verizon
CDMA-S = Sprint
GSM-A = AT&T
GSM-T = T-Mobile
