How can I change the notification ringtone? I go in and change it, and it says it changes, but when I get a text, the old ringtone plays.

Try going to your settings
>Under device, select sound
>Under Ringtone & Notifications, select the DEFAULT NOTIFICATION.
That's what I did to do it..
If that doesn't work try this...
Go to your text messages
>Press the menu button on the phone (next to the home button, has the three horizontal bars.)
>Select settings
>Very bottom of the list it will say Notifications and under that it says Choose Ringtone.
If neither of those work then I don't know what to tell you, that's the best I've got, good luck!

First, are you sure you are changing the message ringtone and not the general ringtone?

To make sure, on the home screen, go to "Messaging"

Then to go "Settings"

Then go to "Choose ringtone"

Then choose the ringtone you want by touching your selection ...it will play immediately after touching it.

Then touch "OK"

If that doesn't change it, try rebooting the phone (soft reset: turn it off, wait 30-seconds, turn it back on).

Hopefully you won't have to do a hard reset to reset everything back to its factory settings.

The phone comes with google play so all of googles apps are on it so you can use google maps. It works extremely well just as good as any other smart phone.

Google Maps is preloaded which has recently been upgraded to include Navigation. There is no longer a separate Navigation app. It is all inclusive.

There is no charge to use Google Maps/Navigation.

No. You can use the 3G data.

If you want to help save on using 3G, then a wifi connection is needed.

You have 2.5GB of data before Straight Talk "throttles" you back to basically dialup speeds until the end of your current 30 day cycle.

No. Tango is the best app. Works like face time. Only everyone else had to download the tango app also. If you want face time get an iPhone. They do use kik and I funny.

You cannot use FaceTime as that is an official Apple product, but you can use any number of apps that require a front facing camera, such as Skype. This phone does have a front facing camera.

I don't believe Wal-Mart's support or customer feedback people monitor messages here. Your store may have received a bad batch of phones; I bought two apparently about the same time you did & neither my wife nor I have had any sound problems.

Yes. Go to menu, system settings, sound, volume --> Then choose the volume you wish. You cannot do anything about the shutter sound :( i wish you could turn it off. I hate the shutter sound.

Yes to both.

Volume level of the ringtone can be changed by going into Settings > sound or by using the volume rocker switch on the side.

Shutter sound can be changed from within the camera settings.

Question

It says it comes with activation card. Is this the same as the $45 unlimited card or were they meaning something else?

When they say activation card, I wasn't sure and wondered if I still need to purchase the $45 unlimited card or not. Thanks!

Please disregard my previous post as I mistakenly was posting the response for another product which was a refurbished phone. This is a new phone.

The answer to your question is YES, you will have to purchase a $45 card at or before activation.

The activation card and the service card are two different items. The activation card is a physical card that is enclosed in the packaging for the phone that gives the phone's identifying numbers needed to activate. It will also give instructions on how to activate the phone.

When purchasing a new Straight Talk phone, you will in fact have to pay in advance for at least 30-days service. That is done by separately purchasing a $45 card. Or you also have the option of purchasing that 30-days of service during the activation process by using a credit/debit card through Straight Talk.

The activation card and the service card are two different things. The activation card will give you the serial number, MEID, ESN, etc. ...any identifying numbers specific to the phone you have. Plus, the instructions on how to activate the phone.

The service card is separate card. On refurbished phones, you get a free month of service so it will be included in the package.

On new phones, you have to buy the first month of service.

So looking at it another way, you are getting this phone for just a bit over $20.

So no, initially, you will not have to buy a $45 card (or the next $45 card) until the first 30-days go by.

I own the Showtime. From what I know about this device though, there is only one feature that I would consider better. That is a dual 1GHz processor.

The Showtime has Gorilla Glass - The Ace has a plastic screen
Showtime comes with an SDcard - Ace does not have one included
Showtime has a flash - Ace does not have a flash

Both phones have front and rear cameras with auto focus.
Both phones run Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4

It really is a toss up actually along with how much money is in your budget. From the reviews on the Ace, it has been very well received over the previous Ascend phones. Huawei has really stepped up their game for Straight Talk. A lot of people do not realize that this company actually outsells the iPhone in China.
