I had issues at first too when I first bought it. I think it's just cause it was new. I have no issues now. It's "loosened up" so to speak :)

Make sure you are swiping outside of the circle when you slide on "Answer."

If not, then the phone will not recognize that you are trying to pick up the call.

You can, but you will need your Verizon account number and may need to contact Verizon for additional information if it is required.

answer 2
Yes you can. Here is how:

1. Call your current provider for your account and pin numbers
2. Buy a $45 service card as this will be required for activation. Can be done at the time of activation also.
3. Call Customer Service or go to straighttalk.com. I find doing this on the web much easier.
4. From the webpage click on Activate/Reactivate > Transfer Number. Put the dot in Transfer number from another carrier.
5. Input the required info, i.e. account and pin numbers. Be sure to use the same contact information you have on file with current carrier.
6. After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a fully working phone in an hour or two.
7. Enjoy your new phone.

Where can you find a case/cover for this phone?

I got a Mini Turtle case at Amazon. The case is a three part system. It has a silicone shell, which you slide the phone into, then a rubberized case which snaps into place. Fits perfectly. Also, it takes the square/sharp edges/corners of this phone and makes them rounder. Which I like better. It also comes with a screen protector, but in the sunshine you will not be able to see phone with this type of screen guard. I am buying a separate Zagg anti-glare protector. The whole Mini- Turtle cost about $10.00
Hope this helps

ote: You have 5 opportunities to enter your unlock Pattern,
PIN or Password. If you've entered the wrong
information 5 times, you will need to wait 30 seconds
before you can attempt again.
When you can’t recall your unlock Pattern, PIN or
Password:
- If you’ve set up a Google account on the device, tap
the Forgot pattern? button. You will be able to
unlock the device with your Google account user
name and password.
- If you haven’t created a Google account on the
device, you will need to perform a factory reset.
(CAUTION! If you perform a factory reset, all user
applications and user data will be deleted. Please
remember to back up any important data before
performing a factory reset.)
1. Turn the power off.
2. Press and hold the following keys for over 5 seconds:
Down volume key + + .
3. When the power turns on, release these keys.

try holding volume up and the power button for about 20 seconds or so. This should kick it into a factory reset (not positive but give it a try).

No. Straight Talk does not allow hot spot/tethering use.

By doing so, if you are are caught...Straight Talk can terminate your service without refund. They can even go as far as blacklisting your phone so it cannot ever be used on Straight Talk again.

It may be spotty but its just like any of the straight talk phones before. You run on other towers like Sprint or Verizon. So far I haven't had any problems with coverage. Hope this helps.

answer 2
No. This phone will use Verizon's prepaid towers. If you go to Verizonwireless.com and put the dot for coverage in prepaid, and refresh the map, everything you see shaded will get service. Remember there are no roaming charges.
