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. The "C" in StraightTalk cell phone model numbers (L86C) indicates this is a CDMA phone and operates on the Verizon CDMA network. Phones with a "G" in their model number are GSM phones and operate on the AT&T/T-Mobile GSM network.

Camera is on front and back and yes you can pretty much get any app you use with ipad/iphone and not have to pay for it.. But yes snapchat is available on android OS. Snapchat is not a phone specific application.

You should. You must have a active phone number to transfer it to your new phone.

answer 2
Yes you can.

If coming from a contract phone you will need your account and pin numbers. You can call your current provider to get these. Also be sure to use the same contact information that you have on file with your current provider.

If transferring from another Straight Talk phone, you will move your service from one device to the other. I just recently did this and was up and running in under 10 minutes. Service time remaining will move to this phone as well.

Create a folder on your SDcard called Music. Copy your music to this folder.

From the Music Player....once you tap the icon the first that shows up is the Music folder that you created and how many files are in that folder.

Google Play Music does not seem to have a folder count though. Just a list that you can scroll through.
