Question

At what point does the "unlimited" data become a "limited" issue? I currently

have the Proclaim and received a phone call that I had used too much data time. This floored me, I had increased my time on Twitter and that was all. I called Straight Talk and guess what???? They were unable to tell me what I was doing that caused the issue. Just kept telling me that I was going to lose my ability to use the internet if I continued doing what I was doing. But no help from them as to what I did wrong. So.........Is this UNLIMITED or LIMITED???????

If limited, tell me, and let me know how to keep track of the amount so as to budget myself and avoid any problems.

You will not ever get a straight answer from Straight Talk regarding data usage.

Data on Straight Talk is not really unlimited. Soft caps are rumored at 2GB every 30 days, and 100mb per day. Try to use WiFi whenever possible.

You can use an app like 3G Watchdog to help keep track of your data usage.

People on the Straight Talk forums on Howard Forums say that 2GB monthly seems to be the limit. Divide that by 30 (days in plan), and get an idea of daily limit. I downloaded My Data Manager app. You can set it up and watch your data amount. WiFi is unlimited, I never use data at home. Hope this helps you.

Question

Customizable alert tones and auto focus?

Does this phone have auto-focus that is needed for barcode scanning apps? Also, can you customize your message alerts? Or only use the preloaded ones? Will it beep/buzz/tone frequently until you check it or just once and then quiet? My old phone would chime every two minutes until you checked your text message, the one I have now is once and done and i miss a lot of stuff because of it.

This phone does have auto focus.

You can customize alerts. All notifications tone will be the same though. You cannot set a different notification tone for messages and then another for email.

The stock messaging app does not support multiple alerts. You can always grab another messaging app from Google Play that supports this feature.

It can be downloaded and used without problems. The camera on this phone does have auto focus so documents and receipts should be clear to who you are sending them to.

Face Time is an apple thing. There are lots of apps out there like Tango, that work very well for video calls.

Facetime is an Apple product. So you won't be able to use the actual Facetime app.

But yes, you can use skype, whatever apps require a front facing camera as this phone does have one.

Is there a app to signal misses calls or messages

The phone I had before Showtime had a audible beep that sounded every 2 min.

The very best App for this is NoLED found at Google Play. You can setup audible beeps, and/or visual icons that will flash on the screen at the intervals you set. It is an awesome App and fills in where all the phones now a days do not have a Notification LED or Audible Reminders for missed calls and the like.

It's a free App, and I highly recommend taking the time to download a theme from their website and load it on the phone. That will give you Android look and quality icons for the visual reminders.

Hope you enjoy the App..... Me and the wife do! We actually used it on our Galaxy Proclaim phones we first got from ST, and still use it today on other phones.

The stock messaging app does not support multiple reminders. You can download another app, like GoSMS. I know for a fact that GoSMS has multiple reminders as I have mine set up that way.

As for missed call reminders, I really do not know. There should be a missed call notification on the top navbar though.
