Make a call, and when it starts ringing, push the volume up button. If that doesn't help it may be an issue with the phone itself

Ask an electronics associate at your local Walmart to assist you with the process. There is a # you can call to file a claim for service/replacement of your phone. You will need your receipt though.

Call the number on the warranty card, if you purchased the extended warranty. They should replace the phone.

Straight Talk's warranty will not cover a cracked screen.

If you did not purchase the extended warranty, then you will need to have someone replace the screen. I would not recommend that you do this yourself. Lots of tiny parts that can easily be lost.

THE DIFFRENCE IS THE EXTREME IS A AT&T TOWER PHONE AND THE SHOWTIME IS A VERISON TOWER PHONE AND ALSO EXTREME HAS A 800 PROCESSER AND THE SHOWTIME HAS A 1MZ PROCESSER SO THE SHOWTIME IS A LITTLE FASTER I RECOMEND THE SHOWTIME IT IS WORTH 50 BUCKS TO HAVE VERISON TOWERS THEY HAVE BETTER SERVICE!

I have the Extreme and when shopping, I wanted the Showtime but had to have a phone that worked with AT&T.

The two major things from what I can remember are 1) the Showtime has both a front and rear camera where the Extreme only has a rear camera, and 2) the Showtime has a bigger screen at 4.3" where the Extreme has a 4.0" screen.

There are some other minor differences but those are the ones that stick in my mind off the top of my head.

Both have Android 4.0 and both have an LED flash on the rear camera.

Extreme has slightly better published battery time ratings both in talk and standby.

Extreme works off of AT&T and the Showtime is on Verizon.

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.

This phone is a CDMA phone, and it doesn't use a SIM card. You should still be able to keep your #. Ask AT&T first though to make sure.
