Click on the green messenger tab and press the three dash button on the bottom right corner of the phone. Select "Notifications" and pick a ringtone, either from your phone or you can make your own. I recommend downloading the Ringtone Maker app if you so choose to make your own ringtones. It's blue with a white music note. Hope this helps.

Go into Settings >> Sound >> Notification Sound

You can choose your notification tone there.

In addition, you can use your own notification sounds also. Create a folder on the SDcard called "Notifications." Drop your tones to that folder. You will then be able to access your own tones, and use them as notification sounds as they show up in the list.

You wouldn't need an extra SIM card, just the pre-paid plan. The only plans that work with this are Straight Talk $45/30-Day Unlimited or $60/30-Day Unlimited International service plans.

I agree with what Jarryed has said.

Allow me to add, however, --and I'm not a Straight Talk employee nor necessarily trying to push their products-- that the Straight Talk plans seem to have more bang-for-the-buck. Yes, Verizon's Prepaid has "bridge data" so you can customize but take a close look at the comparison.

And, by using this phone with Straight Talk, you'll have the exact same coverage footprint as you'd have with Verizon's Prepaid plans. This phone will use the Verizon "native" network but Prepaid Verizon customers also are limited to the "native" network ...in other words, no roaming at all as coverage will be only on Verizon-owned towers. Only Verizon contracted customers get roaming privileges.

Also, no phones on Verizon's Prepaid plans will have access to 4G LTE so once again, Straight Talk service with this phone will mirror Verizon Prepaid in being limited to 3G data speeds as only Verizon contracted customers will have access to 4G LTE.

In addition, Verizon Prepaid has defined data that is hard-capped. By comparison, Straight Talk gives you unlimited data with a soft-cap at 2.5 GB.

Sorry, but you cannot use this phone on Verizon's own prepaid plans.

This phone does use Verizon but it is locked to using Straight Talk service cards. Straight Talk will not unlock the device either.

Hello BB,
There is a front facing and rear facing camera. To switch from rear facing to front facing, click on the camera icon, then at the upper right hand corner you see a camera icon with two arrows, click on that and it will switch from rear to front facing. Just click on that icon again to switch back to rear facing. Hope that helps you.

This phone will have both a front and rear facing camera. The front facing camera will only be VGA at 0.3 MP (lower res 640 x 480?) and the rear camera will be a 5.0 MP with LED flash.

The sound is sufficient for phone calls however the built in speaker isn't as good. If you use a headset or headphones, the audio quality should be very high.

Sound quality will be good.

Should not have any problems. Might get some static breaks when volume it at full when listening to music through the speaker. That happens on nearly every device.

This means when most of the functions of the phoned turned off...data connectivity, wifi, display...keeping bare minimal things running to have the phone working...a fully charged battery will last up to 15 days.

Take these numbers with a grain of salt. Manufacturers spit out these numbers from controlled tests that will in no way represent real world use.

Jeanne, go to the text you want to delete, hold your finger down on the text box, it will then give you the option to delete a text or you can click all the boxes beside all the text you want to delete. After checking them off, touch the trash can icon at bottom of screen.
