The phone does have a built in "Help and Tips" app that links you to Windows Phones website. There you can watch how to videos. Coming from an Android device, and using Android for the last 4 years it took me about a week to get the hang of the Windows OS.

What does it mean when my phone says, "SIM card invalid?"

I'm new to straight talk so I don't really know what I'm doing yet. Do I have to activate the card and the phone? Will that make the SIM card valid?

Assuming that you've just taken the phone out of the box and haven't yet activated it, yes, I'm thinking that's the reason why you are getting that message.

Inside the box there should be what's called an "activation card." It's a card that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to activate the phone along with the numbers needed to give Straight Talk at the time of activation ...MEID or serial number, etc.

If you do not have a "service card" (the $45 card the provides service), don't worry about it as you can purchase the first month of service at the time of activation by giving a credit or debit card number.

At activation, you will be asked if you want a new number for the phone or if you want to port your current number ...or one that you are currently using with an old cell phone.

If you want to "port" your old number, you should be prepared to give Straight Talk your:

1. Your contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider including the ZIP Code.

2. Your account number with your current provider.

3. The PIN or password to your account at your current provider.

Make sure you do not cancel your current service before activating with Straight Talk as having current service is a requirement for porting.

You can activate either online or by calling a Straight Talk rep. Most find it easier just to call a rep since they have dedicated reps that do nothing but phone activations so they know exactly what to do in what order. It's just that they're sometimes difficult to understand as they are at an overseas call center.

Storage Sense is part of the 8.1 updated which has not yet been released. All Windows phones will get the update, but it is up the carrier as to when they will update their phones. Most should have the updated before the end of summer.

Mine runoff at&t, but I've heard they do both depending who you use, I use straight talk.

It depends on your location. If you order online you can use a different zip code at the beginning to get the version you want added to the cart before checkout. I thought I was getting an AT&T version since everything online seems to say it is using AT&T towers. Mine, bought in store, turned out to be using T-Mobile towers.
Here is a link on how to tell which towers it will be using:
http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2011/12/how-to-get-tracfone-net10-or-straight.html

"If you are buying the phone in a store look for the product number on the box under the barcode. If it ends in P4, R4 or P4P, like TFLG800GTMP4P it's AT&T. If it ends in P5, R5 or P5P like TFLG800GTMP5 it's T-Mobile."
