Hi, I think this is a CDMA phone, which would be Verizon back bone I believe.... or maybe it is Sprint.

It works on Verizon towers and yes you can keep your old number, but you have to transfer it while your existing service is still active, so don't cancel it before you buy and activate this phone. They can't port an inactive number.

I don't have this phone yet, but researching for an upgrade. Have used ST for 2+ years now using an old Samsung flip-phone. (Yes, they do still sell them :). ST offers 2 plans but the smart phones only work with the $45/month unlimited minutes, texts, data for a month. No need to purchase extra minutes. Based on monthly charge, not minutes

Straight Talk has 3 options with monthly plans as far as I am aware of.

$35 - 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and some data too. (Walmart and Straighttalk.com has more information on the specifics).

Then they have a Unlimited Plan and an International Calling plan as well, that cost a little more.

With the unlimited plan you just need to pay for the next month to get more minutes for that month.

With the 35 limited plan, you can add a card before the service end date (a month) expires, it will just change the next service end date.

I haven't used or looked into the international plan, Straighttalk.com could probably answer that if needed.

Hope that helps a little.

Hi; I don't have this phone but here is the Samsung's Website on this phone

http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones/SCH-S738YBATFN-specs

"Speakerphone; Voicemail; Speech-to-text; Picture Caller ID; Multitasking; Airline Mode"
I am not sure if voice text is the same as Speech to text, but thought it may help out a little. Hope that helps.

Yes. you just need to make the microphone display on the keyboard the first time by "pressing and holding" the key that looks like a flower to the Left of the space bar key a little box will come up and show you the flower and the microphone symbol, just select the microphone symbol and the key board will now be defaulted with the microphone key where the flower was.

To clarify it allows the user approximately 2.75GB INTERNAL memory for apps. The SD card holds files like music and photos and apps that can be transferred from internal memory.

answer 2
Specs say it has 4GB + 512MB internal memory. The OS or operating system takes up about half of this leaving the user with approximately 2.75GB of internal storage for apps that cannot be moved to the SD card.
