I would look for a phone with more internal storage and more RAM. I had this phone and found that it ran out of available RAM and internal storage too quickly. I would not recommend using this phone for a business. I would look at the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim or higher.

No...as of now there are no walkthroughs anywhere i've looked to "unlock" this phone and use it as a mobile hotspot. Very upsetting. Not to mention, Straight Talk's Terms of Service strictly prohibit that sort of modification.

answer 2
No it does not. Straight Talk does not allow tethering or hot spot use.

If you are looking for those options you will need a contract phone that fits your needs and budget.

There is not a lot of free space internally on this phone. If you don't transfer to the SDcard, this phone will not hold many apps.
