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.

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.

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

how does the WIfi connectivity work

You need to connect it to your home Wi-Fi or a public Wi-Fi by entering the router information into the phone.

You will have the choice of two options to connect to the internet.

1. You can use the 3G mobile internet provided by the carrier (in this case, AT&T with this particular Straight Talk phone). Doing it this way, you will be under the Straight Talk soft-cap of 2.5 GB where you can be throttled after that amount is reached until the next 30-day cycle.

OR

2. You can connect with WiFi. This means you will have to be within range of a WiFi wireless signal either at home with you own router or a public WiFi such as Starbucks, a hotel, airport, library, etc., etc. Using WiFi, you will NOT be using data that Straight Talk is providing so you will want to try and use WiFi whenever you can. WiFi can also be much faster than 3G depending on whose signal you're using.

The way it works is just like on a laptop or tablet, etc., you will see on the display what wifi signals you are within range of and how strong their signals are and whether they are secured or open to anybody. You then can choose which one you want to connect with.

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

You should be able to. When you activate your phone online there should be an option to transfer your current number to the new phone as long as your old phone is still active. Or you could call Straight Talk and have them talk you through it.

Yes, and if it's coming from somebody you have in your address book (contacts), the name is also displayed.

Of course, this only applies when the call is incoming from an unblocked number.
