OS is androids "Operating System". Ice Cream Sandwich continues Google's tradition of alphabetical dessert naming. Gingerbread is 2.3 version so it is older.

Gingerbread is the 2.3 version of android. It's an older version and not as good. There's a secret that lets you see a picture of a gingerbread man in it. The developers have a sense of humor. :)

answer 3
Those are the different versions of the Android operating system.

Version 2.3 was gingerbread.

Version 4.0 (on the Centura) is Ice Cream Sandwich.

The latest version (as of 5/2013) is 4.2 Jelly Bean.

If you are referring to buying the monthly service card--then I don't believe there is a penalty. However, during that time you may lose your phone number. But, once reconnected, you can get a new number.
answered 3 months, 4 weeks ago

answer 2
Yes, there is never a penalty as you are not under contract and are paying for service in advance (or pre-paying for service).

However, the big disadvantage is if you let service lapse, you "may" lose your phone number. The word "may" is the language Straight Talk uses in their T&C and what their reps continually remind you over the phone but from what I hear through the grapevine is that they usually will give you 30-days before you actually do forfeit the number.

If having the same number isn't important to you, there is no penalty for skipping months.

Btw, I use a Google Voice number with my Straight Talk phone so that's an option you might want to consider. I can use my Google Voice number to call out and ring my phone on incoming calls in addition to my Straight Talk number. If you use a GV number then it really doesn't matter if you lose your Straight Talk number.

answer 1
Bluetooth is built into the Windows OS but not every computer, I don't know of any Apple Internet cab able device that is not bluetooth ready, if a phone at this price is not Bluetooth ready don't buy it. It has WIFI but only at 3G which means bluetooth but slow as dirt.

answer 2
You can call by wifi. There are apps, like magic jack, that are free. The downside is that it will delay your calling by asking which you want to use, even when the app is off and has a different phone number. Also prevents easy calling on the go from Bluetooth. It is useful if you don't have signal in your home, but outside of that there's not much point as you have to get unlimited minutes ($45 plan) to use the service with this phone.

It runs off Verizon towers. I suppose you *could* setup google voice or Skype etc. to use wi-fi to make calls, but it natively is a regular cell phone.

Yes, assuming you have text notifications turned on! Also, I find that using the SMS popup app helps immensely, as it creates a pop up window with the text, so you can't miss it when you turn your phone display on.
