No. This phone is locked to Straight Talk using their service cards only. It is impossible to take this phone to another carrier as Straight Talk will not unlock it.

What is swyping on the Huawei H881C ?

answer 1
Swyping is the same as every other smart phone. You swipe the letters on the keyboard to spell your word while writing instead of pressing each individual letter. It gives you a tutorial when you first turn on the phone, like all other smart phones.

Swype is a kind of texting input method. How it works is that you tap and hold on the first letter of the word then slide your finger around on the keyboard, stopping briefly on the next letter, so on and so on until the word is spelled. Lift your finger for a moment and then do the same for the next word. With practice, this can be faster than tapping on the keyboard.

Please note also that Swype can be turned off as well. This will then be like a normal android keyboard to where you tap on the letters with your thumbs.

Question

can you adjust type size, and how much?

On the Galaxy Centura I purchased, you could choose between normal (not large) and tiny type. I believe on some Android phones you have more options for larger type. I'm buying this for my parents who are seniors, so getting bigger type is a huge advantage. What options does this phone have?

it comes with SMALL, NORMAL AND LARGE.... but my mother is 57 and use my phone perfectly fine..the PHONE keys are HUGE and I keep mine on LARGE anyways. I personally think it will back it has a captive screen so if something is too small for them they can make it bigger by touching it and pulling out. :)

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.
