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.

I don't quite understand your question. Are you wanting to see her text messages? Do you mean can you see hers from your phone. No, not unless she forwards them to you or the person sending them forwards to you also. Do you mean, if you pick up her phone, can you read her texts? I suppose, unless she locks her phone.

No, this phone will not work with Walmart Family Mobile.

All Walmart Family mobile phones will use the T-Mobile network exclusively. This phone is CDMA using Verizon and incompatible.

I just looked at the in-store ad for my area and it does list this phone as being a Straight Talk device. Right below it on the same page, it does feature a Walmart Family Mobile Samsung phone (The Samsung Exhibit) for the same price as this one, $99.88.

what is the micro SD card

It's a data storage card to increase the capacity of the phone to store pictures, songs, apps, etc. It comes with 2.7GB but when I loaded ~500 songs from iTunes, I had no capacity left until I added a 16GB MICRO SD card (black Friday special at big online seller for $8 :) ) so now I have plenty of storage. FWIW, the SD card goes inside the battery compartment, not on the outside of the phone like many. That's a good thing because you really should never need to touch it again after installation and it's better protected from dust and dirt and even moisture.

A tiny memory chip that can extend the memory of the phone up to 32GB. The back cover of the phone needs to be removed to insert the micro SD chip.

Unlimited means unlimited but it will throttle your speed after 2GB at straight talk's discretion.
answered 9 months ago
By

answer 2
The Straight Talk "Unlimited" plans are now soft-capped. Which means that you have access to unlimited data BUT your speed may be throttled once you reach 2.5 GB which will remain in place until the end of your 30-day cycle. Normal speeds will resume once you add/activate a new service card.

Therefore, even though you have access to unlimited data, once your speed is throttled --it's reduced to about 2G speeds which could be as low as the typical dial-up speeds-- it's pretty much useless to do anything other than some light web browsing, etc.

So for practical purposes, you get 2.5 GB of data per 30-day cycle.

Straight talk minutes/days transfer as long as both phones are using the same plans ($30 or $45)

answer 2
Yes, but only if the plan is compatible. In other words, if you currently are on the Unlimited Plan, you can transfer it to this phone in order to use the unused time.

However, it kind of sounds that you may be on the 1,000 minute plan as you mentioned "pre-paid minutes." If so, then you would not be able to transfer anything to this phone as this particular phone will require one of the Unlimited Plans and thus no minutes to transfer.

Use a free file manager app available on Google play to transfer the pictures to the SD card. Then change the phones camera setting to automatically save to the SD card in the future.

In my experience the Centura won't read a micro sd card. Try using the Dropbox app and put pictures there and download the app to the phone. That worked for me.

Yes, my husband and I were both able to use our old Verizon numbers. It all takes place in the set-up of the new phone. Just follow the instructions with Straight Talk and you should not have any problems. If you encounter problems, they are very helpful in getting everything worked out for you.
