I'm thinking it may have to do with the Wireless Emergency Alerts that are text-like messages that are sent out for amber alerts, severe weather conditions, Presidential alerts, etc. However, I'm not certain which Straight Talk phones actually are subscribed to this, if any at all ...maybe just the iphones or the newer phones on the market. My LG phone doesn't appear to have the feature and I just bought it last month.

So, what I have to assume that setting may be on your phone even though the phone or Straight Talk/Verizon does not support WEA on this particular phone because some other carriers who also use this phone may support emergency alerts? If your phone did have the feature, it may be the function to change the sound when an alert is sent to your phone.

Maybe others can chime in on WEA and Straight Talk phones to enlighten us all.

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

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.

3G should turn on automatically if you are not connected to WI-FI. Go to Settings, turn off Wi-Fi. Should fix the problem. However....The Centura is notorious for not activating 3G, so good luck on getting it to work correctly.

Question

DATA USAGE

What apps on this phone use the most data and which ones can I get off the phone? I understand if you overuse data your phone can be set to a limited amount of usage. I just purchased this phone on Friday and want to make sure I don't start having issues. Also, how can I tell what programs are still running and which ones need to be closed, example Facebook?

As long as you have the account number from the phone number you want to keep, you can transfer it to the new phone.

Yes, during the activation process, you will be asked whether you want a new number or have your current number ported. The porting process is usually very fast if from a major cellular carrier or provider.
