After moving your apps to the SD card, did you delete them from the internal memory ?
I downloaded the user manual to my laptop, and then used the instructions to delete them from the internal memory on the phone.
No need to have the app in both places.

Internal memory on this phone is pathetic. Only 150mb. One thing you can try is to remove updates to Youtube and Maps to free up some more internal memory.

yes you can speed dial,sorta.have this phone for 5 months.here is how i do it:hold finger on blank part of any of the screens you want to set up a speed dial,home or any of the other 4 can be used,click add shortcut after menu pops up,then click on Direct Dial or Direct Message.then click name from list..will place a icon on your screen..Direct Dial will automatically call that contact when clicked and will have a small green phone with icon.Direct Message will open texting screen for that person when clicked and will have a small chat bubble with icon.will even show the picture of person if you have one set.works better than the old pick a # 1-10 for speed dial.and the added benefit of direct texting some one.hope this helped!

Question

Do I need to purchase a service plan when I purchase a phone?

I already have a Slider Straight Talk phone. It's starting to send my texts while I'm still texting. Now it's getting worse. It turns off and on by itself. Blinks off & on. I want to buy this phone but I don't need the service plan. When I receive this new phone I want to switch the service plan I have just purchased today to the new phone. That's my question. "Can I purchase this phone without purchasing a service plan?"

As long as the phone and service plan are the same you can do anything you want as far as buying a new phone or switching service plans.

biddie4ever, the answer is YES but only if you are currently using (just purchased) one of the UNLIMITED Plans.

This phone requires the use of the $45 Unlimited Plan (or the multiples of 90-, 180-, or 365-day blocks) or the $60 Unlimited International Plan. If you just purchased one of these plans, you can just transfer this new phone to the remaining time you have on your account. This phone will not work with the $30 Plan, however.

THEREFORE, if your current plan is the $30 Plan, then you will forfeit any remaining time that you might have left and will have to start a new Unlimited Plan from scratch. If this is the case, it will probably make more sense to wait and activate the new phone as close to your current "service end date" as possible so as not to waste the money on the $30 Plan you just purchased as Straight Talk does not give refunds on plans already purchased.

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, you can if you wanted to. Your current number must be an active number. Here are the steps to take.

If current carrier is other than Straight Talk:

1) Call your current provider and get your account and pin numbers. This includes Net10 and Tracfone services. These are required to port your number to Straight Talk.
2) Activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Click Activate, then transfer number. Put the dot in Activate my Straight Talk Service with a number from another company. Be sure to use the exact same account information(name, address, etc).
3) You will need a service card for activation. This can be done at activation. This phone will only use the $45 Unlimited or the $60 International Unlimited.
4) After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full functioning phone within an hour or two 99% of the time
5) Enjoy your new Samsung Galaxy S Showcase

If your current carrier is Straight Talk:

1) Activate on the web with this option ticked - Transfer my Straight Talk service
2) Service days left will transfer as well as your phone number
3) See step 4 and 5 above
