answer 1
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.

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.

answer 1
If you want really good protection, this is a great case. I got the green one
http://www.beyondcell.com/ECommerce/General/BrowseCategory.aspx?CategoryId=1584

There other options available. It's the closest thing to an Otterbox available for this phone.

Here is the full list.

http://www.beyondcell.com/ECommerce/General/BrowseCategory.aspx?CategoryId=1584

Don't worry that it says Samsung Discover, there are 2 different versions of the Discover and S370G is identical to the Centura. The other one has a more square design so it's easy to tell apart.

This phone only works with straight talk but straight talk uses Verizon towers. If you are close to Verizon towers you can use it. Straight talk is prepaid. You buy a card every month. Texting, calls, and internet is unlimited for 30 days if you buy the $45.00 straight talk card. You buy another card when your 30 days is up. Straight talk will send you a text message letting you know when you need to buy another card. You can not add it to a verizon account. It only works with prepaid. I love the straight talk service been with them for several years, no problems!

yes and i use it all the time when texting. after you've spoken your sentence, speak the words for your punctuation mark and the phone will fill it in. such as:
would you like to come over question mark
and the phone will convert it as:
would you like to come over?

answer 2
yes, it does. i use it all the time when sending text messages. after you've said your sentene, just say the word for the punctuation you'd like to use, too. such as, you'd say "would you like to come over and watch the game question mark" and the centura will convert it to:
would you like to come over and watch the game?
it's not flawless, but once you get the hang of how you need to pronounce words and enunciate, you're golden. :)

can you speak into phone for texting(hands free)?

answer 1
Yes, That is the best thing. Go to settings, then scroll to Language and input. Click on Google Voice typing to turn it on. Now if you go to text someone and you want to speak the message, click on the microphone symbol which is just to the right of the 123 Sym square. If there is no microphone symbol, and instead it looks like a little gear symbol, press and hold the gear symbol, and the microphone will pop up. Touch the microphone, and it will now appear next to the 123 square instead of the gear. If you want to type your text you can, and if you want to speak it, touch the microphone symbol and speak away. If someone sends you a picture with a text, you can save it to your phone by touching and holding the pic. It will get bigger and ask you if you want to view and or save it. Fun!
