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.

I would attach it to an email and send it that way.
From inside a new email, press the menu button (far left on bottom of phone) Add Attachment and then Gallery to select you picture you want to attach and send.

It means it has a GPS satellite receiver in it but does not have a full GPS software. This does have Google navigate in it though and GPS software could be downloaded from Googe Play.
It is just not packaged as a full GPS, it's a phone!

GPS stands for global positioning system. Included with this phone is Google Maps and Navigation. Maps will give you restaurants, hotels, etc near you. Maps also assists in the Navigation part of the phone. Navigation features turn by turn directions, like you see on TomTom's and other navigation devices.

There is no extra cost to use these features.

You can, but more than likely the video portion of Skype will not work as there is no front facing camera on this phone.

answer 1
It is as reliable as Verizon.
This phone uses Verizon Cell Towers.
Go to Verizon and check coverage in your area.
By the way, not all phones sold by Walmart are on Verizon, this one is though.
answered 2 years, 2 months ago
By
RipperJim
answer 2
Service is going to depend on how far you are from the towers, if there is interference at your home, and the like.

This phone runs on Verizon. Take a look at verizonwireless.com. Click on coverage maps on the left hand side. Put the dot in prepaid and refresh the map.

Now locate your general area. You can zoom in to take a closer look. If the area that you live in is shaded, then you should have service.
