I'm certain that Google "Maps" app is pre-installed on this phone which will include turn-by-turn navigation along with a bunch of other GPS features.

If you're interested in the actual directions, you can take a look here (copy-and-paste):

I agree with TarheelFromNC. This phone requires the $45 plan as do all ST smartphones. And yes, it does run on the Verizon network.

I believe it should take either as both have basically the same requirements:

* Android 2.3 or higher
* A 3.5mm headset jack with microphone
* Location services enabled
* Access to the internet
* Relatively large screen

This phone should meet or exceed all those requirements.

A full keyboard

answer 2
This phone will have a "normal" QWERTY keyboard but it is "virtual" (on the screen) and not a slide-out physical keyboard.

It can be used in both portrait and landscape positions. In landscape position, you will turn the phone on its side lengthwise making the keyboard larger and easier to use (thumb typing, etc.).

As you probably know, Facetime is an iOS app and only works with Apple products.

There are several other ways to accomplish similar functions on an Android where those with iPhones can also use. The one frequently recommended is Google Talk/Hangouts. Skype is another alternative along with a few others.

Yes this phone does use verizon towers. I am using this phone right now which verizon is the only service available out in the country area around here. So I can confirm it does use it. If you buy it at walmart and see a picture of the united states on the box colored in with RED that indicates that which ever straight talk phone you are looking at uses VERIZON. Hope that helps.

From my recollection, Viber only requires Android 2.0 or better so you should be able to install the Viber app on this phone since it has 4.0.

Yes just call Straighttalk and port your number to your new phone

answer 2
Yes, during the activation process, you will be given the choice to have the phone assigned a new number or if you want to port you current number to Straight Talk.

I ported my number from Sprint to Straight Talk and it took less than ten minutes to complete the port. They warn you that it could take several hours and in some cases (like porting a number from a land line), could take longer. You can use your old phone until the number has transferred.
