Question

Can I buy an extended battery?

I find that the battery runs out on standby in less than three days. The original claim on the web site was that it would last ten days on standby.
If I use the phone a few times to talk or text, it last less than two days. I have turned off Wi-Fi and blue tooth and I am not running any apps.

You can get an extended battery but it still won't last as long as you are looking for.

That is totally normal for a smartphone. Most smart phones require a daily recharge - unlike their basic counterparts. Even a higher capacity battery will not last for 10 days. Note that I speak as a user, not a rep.

I personally have not seen an extended OEM battery for this particular phone. I notice that there are several after-market (non-OEM) batteries that have a higher mAh rating but it doesn't seem to necessarily extend the battery storage ability from what I've read ...like this one (copy-and-pate):

http://www.amazon.com/2050mAh-Replacement-SCH-S738C-Straight-CellPhone/dp/B008V3RU10

In addition to turning off the Wi-Fi, be sure to also turn off the mobile internet connection provided by the carrier as you may be connected to the internet and not be aware that you are (I'm kind of thinking that this could be the case in your situation).

Also keep in mind that the published standby times given by the manufacturers are measured under ideal laboratory conditions and real-life experience comes nowhere close. Many factors play into the measurement too such as distance from the tower ...if you are a long way from the tower or your signal is weak, it will deplete the battery much faster.

If you don't mind incoming calls going to voicemail (you can always turn the phone on periodically to check for messages or check for messages remotely), you might think about powering the phone off or put it in airplane mode until you need to make a call or otherwise need to use it.

Question

emergency call screen

Just bought the Centura phone and like it so far. The phone keeps going to an emergency call screen and locks in that screen. It will allow me to go to call pad but will not allow me to make a call. When I put in phone number it says "not an emergency, call not allowed". How do I get out of this screen without dialing 911 and how do I keep this from happening again? Getting very frustrated. This is third time and have rebooted two times just to get out of this screen. I do have full service when this happens.

you should just be able to hit the little arrow in the bottom right corner of your phone next to the home key

Usually you get this through accidental handling. If you have screen lock on and you hit the power button it brings up the keypad (for your pin) - below the keypad is the emergency call button, which allows you to make that call without entering your pin. If you get into that situation just tap the "home" button - in the middle just below the word "Samsung", and it will take you back to the keypad for your pin. Or, you can just leave it be until it goes to "sleep".

This phone can be used only in conjunction with the straight talk deal offered by walmart. You pay either 45 monthly nationwide for unlimited texting, data, and minutes or...65 for same deal internationally. Otherwise, that is ALL you pay. You can order the phone online (and it is cheaper online than in-store) and then you just pay the 45 per month. It is a GREAT cost effective deal!

yes in order to keep the phone active you have to buy a straight talk card for $45 a month or you can go to ebay and type in a search for straight talk 365 and there is a person that sells a whole year plan for $409 best buy out there

What is the number to call to activate?

I accidentally closed the screen that had the number to call to complete activation. Does anyone know what the number is to call? All I remember is it is is a * then 5 -6 numbers.

Straight-Talk CS does in fact lack. I called and they couldn't take my call. I emailed and haven't gotten a response, they said up to 6 hours it has been over 12..

There is an enter key on the default keyboard, it just does not say 'enter.' It is on the lower right side of the keyboard and can be used instead of the save option.

Please see my review under "R44Inspector" before you buy.. if you are texting, there is an "enter" key. When you are in any other feature or on the web, you just tap on links.

Here is what information you'll need to give Straight Talk at the time of activation (from their website):

Activate my Straight Talk Service with a number from another company:

To successfully complete this process you will need to provide the information indicated below about your current service.

This information can be found on your billing statement or by contacting your current service provider.

-- Your Account Number
-- Your Password or PIN*
-- Your contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider

*Some service providers may not require the use of a password or PIN. If you are unsure whether or not you have one,
please contact your service provider since you will need this information to complete your request.

You can do it yourself online or call Straight Talk and have a service rep assist you with it.

When I attempted to do it online, it gave me a "failure" warning and said something to the effect that the device was not compatible with the area and then gave a phone number to call. I called the number and a rep took all my information to activate the phone. She told me that typically it would take several hours to port the number but could take as long as 48-hours. However, it wasn't that big a deal to me because you can still use your old phone while you are waiting for the number to port. Believe it or not, the number was ported in less than 10-minutes (from Sprint) and the new phone was up and running.
