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!

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 1 year, 2 months ago
By

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.

As you check the different phones out, you should have the option of entering your zip code at the top to see if the phone works in your area. You may need to do this with a computer rather than a cell phone if that's how you're accessing the website. If the phones you like don't work in your area, you'll need to select a different phone or go to walmart and see what they have available.

Chuck, I just did a quick coverage check of your area and it appears that you only have AT&T coverage. There is no native Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile coverage in the Chama area.

Therefore, you will be forced to choose a Straight Talk phone that uses AT&T.

One that comes quickly to mind is the Straight Talk ZTE Merit for $59.99 (copy-and-paste):
