Yes, you can either buy it directly from the play store or you can just plug into your computer and download it. You can also get an app called mp3 music downloader that is free and lets you download free music.

It really does take a while for me to send photos and also receive photos. I'm not sure why it takes so long, at first I thought it was just a way I was sending it - maybe I wasn't doing it right - but I realise that it's just the phone. Receiving photos lately I haven't been able to do at all, the photo will come in and say to download it - it doesn't always automatically download it - then it will say it is unable to be downloaded.

More than likely when the phone does not send a picture...it can be attributed to network problems.

I have never had a problem sending picture messages.

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.

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.

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.

From what I've read about other Ascend phones, you may have to do a hard reset (factory reset) if you've tried everything, including taking the battery out, waiting a few minutes, and then reinserting the battery.

Of course, when doing a hard reset, you'll lose all your settings and you will have to start from scratch reconstructing all your contacts, preferences, etc.

To do a hard reset, again, take the battery out for a minute or two and insert it again.

Press and hold the Power Button and Volume key -UP at the same time and wait until the phone vibrates.

Once the Huawei logo appears, release the Power button while continuing to hold the Volume key -UP and wait for the Android logo to access the blue menu in order to reset.

Select "data wipe/factory reset" to delete all user data.

Select "reboot system now." After the reboot, the phone will start like it did when you took it out of the box when new.

Hopefully, somebody here may be able to suggest other things to try before you have to do a factory reset.

Good luck.
