I've heard that the Samsung Galaxy Discover cases should fit it. You can find cases for the Centura on eBay.

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".

It does, but it's a bit quirky and takes a couple more button presses to get working.
While texting, you'll need to hit the settings icon in the keyboard and select talk to text function.

Yes, you can effectively dictate to the phone using google's speech recognition via the microphone key on the keyboard. You do have to have a network connection to use it, however.

I am using Silicone Soft Skin Case for Samsung Galaxy Proclaim. it is not an exact fit but everything is accessible. heated it up in the microwave for about 2 minutes to shrink the case for a tighter fit. found amazon has several cases for the galaxy none for this phone.

There are cases available on eBay. Some say this is identical to the Samsung Galaxy Discover but I am not 100% positive they are identical.

So far it's been great. Verizon towers are by far the best in my area, so things have been good. Easy to use entry level android. Check out the tracphone tutorial for info on using:

No it can not, as per Straight Talk terms of service... and it is said to be enforced.

Straight Talk does not allow tethering and it is blocked from the phone. If you figure out a way to circumvent it, they will disconnect your phone. If you need tethering, you will need to go on a post paid plan through Verizon, AT&T, etc.
