These types of services must be enabled on your phone. Ask the retailer and the national carrier.

The phone must be an area to receive a clear FM signal just like your car radio. You might have better luck looking for wireless or internet radio provider that broadcasts on cellphone bands.

Yes. They are the same phone with separate programming for each provider.

Tracfone has a usage monitor and Straight Talk does not. Other than that one difference they are the same phone. 840G has proprietary operating system, not an Android, same specs and features. Both have coverage thru AT&T and T-Mobile shared coverage.

The phone is the same, the way you pay to access is different.

Question

Adding contacts

I can't get the full keyboard (horizontal) when adding my contacts, and T9 doesn't work for names. It works when I go to text messages, just not when adding new contacts.
Is this a malfunction, or just a bad design for this phone?

When you get the num-pad, there is a button in the top right corner. When you press it, one option is "Input method," and you can choose "Keyboard." For whatever reason, this isn't always available (ie sometimes when online), but it looks like it works for entering contacts.

answer 2
When adding/editing info to the contact list select any field press the options icon (upper right corner) /Input method/Keyboard

But unfortunately you will have to do this for each field in which you wish to use the full keyboard, which in my opinion qualifies as a bad design

There are no minutes included with straight talk service. Those must be purchased separately. If you purchase this phone under tracfone service sometimes it does come with minutes, but straight talk has the unlimited use available and tracfone does not.

answer 2
Activation card is just for activating the cell phone. Minutes are purchased on a separate card.
