You can uninstall apps by going to your home screen, hitting the menu button (the one with three lines on it) and hit "manage apps". Go to the app that you want uninstalled and click on it. Then hit uninstall. Easy

To move apps to the SDcard...no.

To uninstall the preinstalled apps...yes. But a huge word of warning. If you happen to brick the phone...neither Walmart or Straight Talk will replace the device.

Is this truly a smart phone?

The product information is confusing to me concerning whether or not it is truly a smart phone. Not exactly tech savvy but I don't understand why the info says you have to have a wireless connection.

You do not need Wifi. Wifi will make browsing faster but the straight talk service provides internet. You can go to any website basically. The site does not have to support mobile devices. There is GPS on the spot location. It's truly a smart phone. It has everything from GPS to internet to taking videos and apps. You can play games and chat face to face with someone(rear and front cameras). It has a great speak-to-text feature that translate words very well to text. Basically like a Samsung Galaxy SII with a few differences.

This is a smartphone, in every essence of the word.

Since Straight Talk does have data caps(they will never admit it), the WiFi is there for you to limit your data use(3G) when at home.

Essentially a smartphone is a mini computer and phone tied into one, hence this device. Androids and iPhones are smartphones.

The old flip style phones are called feature phones. Anything that is not running Android of iOS is a feature phone.

Yes you can.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Call your current provider for your account and pin numbers
2. Buy a $45 service card as this will be required for activation. Can be done at the time of activation also.
3. Call Customer Service or go to straighttalk.com. I find doing this on the web much easier.
4. From the webpage click on Activate/Reactivate > Transfer Number. Put the dot in Transfer number from another carrier.
5. Input the required info, i.e. account and pin numbers. Be sure to use the same contact information you have on file with current carrier.
6. After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a fully working phone in an hour or two.
7. Enjoy your new phone.

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.

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.

Download indicator -- If it keeos doing & all your apps/downloads are up to date, restart the phone & it should go away. If it doesn't you may need to use Clean Master, Memory Boost, All-in-One Toolbox or some other app that will let you free up RAM/ROM, &/or kill tasks. RAM/ROM are somewhat limited on this phone, so you may get "insufficient space do it available" errors if you don't clean often enough or have an app set to auto for you.

That icon that you mention is for Google Play. That is the downloading icon which basically mean an app is being updated or downloaded.

You can set apps to update via wifi only if you so choose.
