Check the little WiFi signal on the top left of your screen (it looks like a rainbow if it is connected). You can also go into the WiFi settings to make sure your phone is turned on to your WiFI and that it has connected to a WiFi network.

in the top left corner of the screen beside the 3G icon you will see a blue signal icon when you are connected to a wifi network, just turning on wifi will not show this icon, it will not show until you are connected to a wifi network, hope this helps

C: To PC from old phone then to new phone
D: Put old phone's SD card in new phone. (and/or) move pic's to internal memory, reinstall new SD card and move pic's to it

You will have to purchase a separate cable (if you don't already have one# that will allow you to transfer photos from this phone #or computer, etc.) The only thing that can be transferred from one Tracfone to another is the phone # & current minutes. Hope this helps. I contacted Tracfone and this is what they told me.

Question

Can someone tell me about the volume on this phone?

I see it says hearing aids compatible. I am wondering how loud I can increase the volume (for listening) on the this phone. I am hearing impaired - I wear aids but for some voices I really need to have a higher volume.

Is it adjustable?

Thanks Madman! I actually did buy the phone - it DOES have a hearing aid setting and a TTY setting.

Go to the Settings button on the main Home screen (looks like a little gear) and click that on. There is an option to turn the hearing aid setting off and on (off is a "O" and on is a "|") - if it is on, a teeny tiny ear will display at the top of the screen. :) It is quite cute!

So far, I am liking the sound features of this phone. I can individual set the Call volume different than the ring volume etc. And even the MP3 player (which I am still fooling around with and need to get a bigger card) is good volume. Still playing with the ring settings too and I still seem to miss the calls or maybe I do not have it set right. I usually do halfsie vibrate and ring.

In addition, you can also increase the volume with the volume button on the left side. So, so far so good. I haven't tried the TTY setting yet but I don't talk on the phone enough to test that or the volume settings with different voices.

I have CIC digital aids with no telecoil so my experience might be different but I don't get the feedback like I did with my old tracfone (which honestly was pretty low tech though).

Searching for a good headset with volume and speaker too.

I haven’t found a specific setting to enable a hearing aid option yet.
My best suggestion is to turn on the speaker phone before making and when answering a call
This will significantly increase the volume to what should be an acceptable level

The only way I can see is if you type the last name in the first name space, and then type the first name in the last name space, so it will then sort in reverse order than it usually does (it sorts now by first name, so by typing things in reverse, it should sort by last name)

I'm afraid there's no option for that.
If that's how you want contacts to appear on the list you will have to individuality inter the last names first on there contact info page

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

If I understand you correctly, you want to purchase a Tracfone and try it then at a later time you want to transfer your ACTIVE telephone # to this phone.

Yes it can be done. It has to be done in steps. Whatever you do, do not call Tracfone other than as described as follows, because you could lose your telephone # and you won't get it back.

Here's the process, don't miss a step. Activate a new Tracfone. Go to Tracfone.com and create an online account and add the phone. Don't add a lot of minutes and in 90 days let the new Tracfone go inactive. Now call Tracfone and tell them you're ready to reactivate the phone and they will check that it's your phone at your online account and will send a new SIM to the address on record. Remove your SIM from your Tracfone and insert the new SIM and call Tracfone ( could begin this process online if you're comfortable, but you still will have to call them about the new SIM receipt). Tell them you want to port your cell phone from another phone to this inactive phone and they will take it from there.

GGB, to my knowledge, you can "port" your telephone number whenever you change phones. I hope this helps.
