No there is not, as Straight Talk does not allow streaming data. So even with an app installed, that would be against the Terms of Service.

You'll find it to be an unsatisfactory experience with any StraightTalk phone.

ST phones are 3G and they habitually initiate connections at slower 2G (1RTX) speeds until your data session meets thresholds "convincing" the cellnetwork to apportion your connection to faster 3G and thats until you max out your 2.5GB monthly cap ( a pair of streaming YouTube or NetFlix movies is that much) then your connection is at "2G" and comparable to basic DSL for the rest of the $45 service month.

If you're just taking periodic snap shots from a surveillance camera or a nanny cam for snapshotting the dog in the backyard then its fine... but if you're trying to stream a remote infant monitor,....find something else entirely than a ST or any prepaid provider.

This particular phone will be using the Verizon native network.

Verizon coverage looks good in that zip code. Go to the Verizon coverage map where you can put in your address to get even a better idea of coverage. Look at the Prepaid coverage map and the data coverage map. You will not get 4G with this phone but it doesn't appear that there is 4G coverage there anyway.

Copy-and-paste this URL for the Verizon coverage map:

SIM card is the card that stores your phone info like contacts and setting and number. SD card is a card that you store music or photos on and it is removable and you can access it on your pc.

answer 2
A SIM card is used to identify and authenticate your phone on the network it's using. It stores carrier-specific data.

An SD card is for your own personal storage. It is primarily used to free up the internal storage that built in to your phone which usually isn't very much. It can contain apps, your photos and/or music you keep on the phone, your contacts, and other files you may want to keep on your phone.

Unfortunately, Straight Talk's Terms and Conditions of Service prohibit using any of their smartphones as hotspots.

However, they are now offering a dedicated mifi hotspot for $79 plus your choice of a flexible data plan (copy-and-paste):

answer 2
No, this phone is CDMA and uses the Verizon native network. In this configuration, it is incompatible with AT&T which uses GSM (using a SIM card).

Right, if you live in an area where AT&T is better, choose a Straight Talk phone that uses the AT&T network.

answer 1
The activation card is the little red card included in the box with any Straight Talk phone that you purchase with the serial number of the phone that you will need to activate it. The serial number is also inside
all phones under the battery; however, they are so small that you will need a magnifying glass to read. Straight Talk has just made it easier by including the card with the serial number on it.

answer 2
An activation card is a paper card that is enclosed in the packaging and provides instructions on how to activate the phone. It will also contain the numbers you are required to give to Straight Talk in order to activate the phone ...the MEID (serial number) , etc.

It DOES NOT provide service! If you are purchasing a new Straight Talk phone, you will need to purchase a service card or arrange paying for service at the time of activation in a separate transaction.
