Ken, I apologize to you and others who did not find my first response helpful.

Let me break it down and address each part of the response to see if we can clarify any confusion. I don't want to come across as being an expert at everything about Straight Talk but just want to share my limited knowledge on some of the basics.

1. Straight Talk predetermines the carrier used for each phone MODEL it sells. The consumer does not have the choice to change that at the time of purchase.

2. This phone, the Huawei H881C Ascend Plus has been predetermined by Straight Talk to use the Verizon "native" network which means that there is no roaming and service will be with Verizon-owned towers only.

3. The phone will use the Verizon native network for both voice and 3G data.

4. The phone will use Verizon no matter where it is purchased be it Walmart, directly from Straight Talk, or a third-party vendor on eBay (etc.).

5. The phone will use the Verizon network no matter where the purchaser is located or travels in the U.S.

6. The phone will use the Verizon network for the life of the phone while on Straight Talk service.

Ken, this particular phone on Straight Talk will use Verizon native coverage (no roaming, Verizon-owned towers only). It will use Verizon Wireless voice and 3G data no matter where you travel in the U.S. where Verizon coverage is present for the life of the phone while it is on Straight Talk service regardless of how or where you purchase it, i.e. Walmart store, online at Walmart, online at Straight Talk, or an independent vendor on eBay, etc.

Go to facebook.com using the browser. I generally prefer to use a browser to access websites because some apps slow down the phone or use the battery faster. If you use facebook a lot it's probably worth installing the app. If you just visit occasionally it's probably better to use the browser.

Play store> FB app. It should work OK for you, but bear in mind the limitations of the phone might play into it. Occasionally it will crash or if your fingers don't work well you may put it into the background & have to retrieve & continue.

For an inexpensive phone with relatively middle-of-the-pack resources it works pretty well.

Phone will pick up the WiFi and drop the 3G on networks that the phone has been set to remember, if WiFi has been turned on(battery killer on ICS).

Otherwise, the phone will notify you of WiFi networks which you can then manually choose from in the WiFi settings, again only if WiFi on the device is on.

Question

Transfer of contact phone book

I asked this question before and got answers that it could be done. However, I looked all through the manual for my old phone (LG Encore) and found nothing saying it can be done. The SD card doesn't seem to allow saving contact info on it, just music, pix, videos. As for bluetooth, I paired the 2 phones, and attempted to "send via bluetooth" contact phone numbers. It said it was attempting to do so, but then dropped the connection. Hit retry, and got same result. I guess I will have to retype all the names and numbers into the new phone. Nothing is ever easy with electronics.

You should be able to go into the LG's contact list & use its ability to export the data to a vcf file. Then e-mail that file to yourself, open mail with the phone, touch the vcf attachment, & use the export to contacts option.

Stop doing that for every phone you get. Do it one more time in Gmail then sync ur Gmail account to every Android you get for now on and all your contacts will always be there in just seconds after you turn on a new phone the first time. Also it's much easier to manage your contacts from a laptop than your phone.

You can always back up your contacts to Gmail also. You should already have a google account for access to Google Play. Then all you would need to do it sync your contacts on the new device and done.
