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.

answer 1
That would be the operating system Android.
There are many things to consider if upgrading the Operating System, least of which is the 'upgrade' must be customized for each phone. Therefore you must understand the hardware and the android platform to 'upgrade' it.
This is probably left to 'experts' only and not touched or the phone could be 'bricked'.
Good luck, and get you checkbook out.

The only way this phone will be upgraded is if Straight Talk sends out an upgrade. Otherwise you are probably gonna need to root, and install a custom rom which will more than likely void any warranty if you brick your phone.

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?

You can browse just about any website with this phone. Take note that some videos on like new stories will not play. Almost many sites will be optimized for mobile devices, though you can always tap "full site" or something similar at the bottom of the pages.

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.

It is much like any other phone, you press the "Camera" option on the main screen. Once you scroll to the picture in the gallery that you want to post you press the "Share" option. It will provide a list of websites or email sites that one would use to share. You press the Facebook icon and enter your log in info and it will post on your FB page under mobile download pics.

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.
