More than likely, there are no good tower output in that area. Don't think the phone is the problem. Once in awhile, there just isn't good tower service in some remote areas.

This particular phone uses the Verizon native network. If you're referring to Lake Brownwood Texas, if you look at the Verizon coverage map, you'll see that there is absolutely no NATIVE Verizon coverage in that area (or at least in ZIP code 76801).

Verizon coverage map (copy-and-paste):

You'll probably want to choose a Straight Talk phone that uses the AT&T network as it appears that AT&T has good coverage in that area.

I sincerely doubt it, but who knows. Is your old car charger USB adapter? This phone uses a USB plug, and if your old charger is not a USB adaptor for the car you will have to buy one. Which you can get at Wal-Mart for about $10 plus tax.

Any of the USB chargers will work on all the phones and tablets. I use the cigarette lighter / charger and the only difference might be the end USB connector because some are slightly smaller than others.

Question

Problem with phone or sevice?

I activated my straight talk service on the Centura about 2 weeks ago. My mom was the first to call me on it - everything went fine. She also uses ST. Now she can't call me. She gets a message that the area code or phone number isn't valid. She lives 125 miles away. Everything works fine when she's at my house - calls go through. When she goes home, she gets the same error. Keep in mind, she called me from her house and it worked fine once. We've both called ST customer service and no one seems to know what the problem is. Anyone else have this issue?

Jen - this same thing happened to me with another phone service. I live in Georgia (706) area code, but had to get a Tennessee (423) area code number to talk to my wife standing in the same room. Check with friends, if necessary, to see what codes they are using for your area - hope this helps!

The service providor is Verizon so if you are both not in a Verizon service area you may be roaming and you may need to set the code for that. It is in the book that comes with the phone. I had to do that on my Galaxy because occasionally it switches to a tower that is AT+T instead.

The user manual does address changing the language. However, unless you are fluent in German, I would think that you'd have to use translation as the instructions are printed in English.

I'm assuming you must know both German and English? If so, it should be easy to follow the directions given.

Manual in English (copy-and-paste):

can you see the screen easily in the sun

Yes! You can see the screen great in the sun, seeing the illuminated LCD is another story. Outside on a sunny day you could use the screen as a rescue device to gain the attention of low flying aircraft with the glare from the sun however I try not to expose the screen to direct sunlight and expect to read anything on it, when I shade the phone or turn it away from the sun, the image is very legible provided that the screen dimmer is on max battery drain setting. I realize that there are times that turning away from the sun is not an option like when I am driving on the interstate doing at least 15 over the limit and the sun is beaming in just over my left shoulder. This is really dangerous because you really need to squint and hold the phone close to your face in order to make out whats on the screen and it does take much more time to process the information when it is difficult to see which means your eyes are not on the road for at least 2 to 3 times longer than they would normally be. I have hit several objects in the road that I was not able to identify but since they didn't cause any major damage I continued on driving and surfing the net.
