Does this phone's camera have autofocus?

Some apps, like the updated Chase QuickDeposit, seem to require it now.

The camera does not have true auto focus, but does work well enough for scanning bar codes. A check scanner should still work. Do keep in mind that there is no flash or illumination - that may be more of a limiting factor than focus. You will need good lighting.

Question

I bought this, but I do not have Swype installed that I can tell. It also does not have the blue arrow navigation icon under apps, just google maps

Can anyone tell me if they had this problem also. I live by Swype and must have it on my phone.

download the SWYPE app. I bought it for 99 cents and love it
There is a widget that is called Directions that you can set up navigation (turn by turn through)

Google has killed off navigation, and the blue arrow icon is now gone. Google Maps with built-in navigation has taken it's place. As of this posting, it does not work as well (just minor quirks) - but from experience, Google will improve it.

You should have Swipe capability from the factory.

This particular phone will be using the Verizon native network.

Verizon coverage looks good in that zip code. Go to the Verizon coverage map where you can put in your address to get even a better idea of coverage. Look at the Prepaid coverage map and the data coverage map. You will not get 4G with this phone but it doesn't appear that there is 4G coverage there anyway.

Copy-and-paste this URL for the Verizon coverage map:

SIM card is the card that stores your phone info like contacts and setting and number. SD card is a card that you store music or photos on and it is removable and you can access it on your pc.

answer 2
A SIM card is used to identify and authenticate your phone on the network it's using. It stores carrier-specific data.

An SD card is for your own personal storage. It is primarily used to free up the internal storage that built in to your phone which usually isn't very much. It can contain apps, your photos and/or music you keep on the phone, your contacts, and other files you may want to keep on your phone.

How do you get a phone number?

During activation/registration, you will be asked if you want to "port" your current number or be assigned a new number.

If you want to port the number you have now from your current cellular carrier, it only takes a short period of time after the activation process is complete to have the number transferred. It took about 10-minutes when I ported my number from Sprint to Straight Talk. It could take a few hours but you can use your old phone while you are waiting.

I Don't Believe So. What You Use With This Phone Is Usually The $45 Unlimited 30-Day Monthly Plan Card, It Costs A Little Over $45 For A Month's Service. Hope This Helps You :)

From my recollection, Viber only requires Android 2.0 or better so you should be able to install the Viber app on this phone since it has 4.0.

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.
