not sure if the phone itself does, , but you can call straight talk and have automatic messages emailed or texted to your phone when you are near your service end date. I've had mine for 3 years and it has always reminded me 3-4 days before expiration.

answer 2
About 7-10 days before your service is set to expire, Straight Talk will start to send text notifications, or you could away log into the Straight Talk website and find out there as well.

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.
