2. 3.5 mm headset jack with microphone
3. Support for Location Services
4. Access to the internet (via WiFi or cellular data network)

This phone meets or exceeds all those specifications.

I'm not sure if this is a function of the OS but I too have Ice Cream Sandwich but not this particular phone. How I access the speed dial settings is to press the "menu" key when the dialer is showing. I then see an option for "speed dial."

If that's not an option on your phone, there are several apps that can be installed and also you can add dialing shortcuts to your screen. Dialing shortcuts would only work for those with a limited number of contacts as who would want their screen cluttered with speed dial shortcuts.

However, even if you can make it work, it is against the Terms and Conditions you agree to when you register and activate your Straight Talk phone as all ST smartphones are not allowed to be tethered nor used as mifi devices. Therefore, if detected, they can terminate your service.

Question

Will this phone and Straight Talk work with Verizon Network Extender

asked 11 months ago

My apologies for not being helpful, Buddy.

However, if you read that thread I referenced, it doesn't appear that you can use the Verizon Network Extender.

Here's Straight Talk's response:

"We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the delayed response about your inquiry. We currently do not support network repeaters or network extender with our Straight Talk phones. Thank you for your inquiry."

Here's a real life experience from a person trying to use the extender:

"I had Verizon, with the network extender at my home. I switched to Straight Talk. The network Extender continued to work with my Straight Talk CDMA phone, UNTIL my wife cancelled her Verizon contract. As soon as there were no more Verizon users in the household, the extender stopped working. So it appears, as long as someone in the house has a Verizon account, the network extender will work. It worked with my straight Talk CDMA Samsung Galaxy until my wife cancelled her Verizon account."

So that's why it appears to me that you have to have an actual Verizon account for the Verizon Network Extender to work. Being a Straight Talk subscriber, you will NOT have a Verizon account. You will have a Straight Talk account with a phone that uses the Verizon network. It's not the same thing.

answer 2
No, from the way I understand it, you have to have the Verizon Network Extender registered with an actual Verizon account. Using a Verizon MVNO such as Straight Talk, you will not actually have a Verizon account.

Straight Talk will not support it at all.

Here's a thread on Howard Forums about it (copy-and-paste):

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.
