It can send and receive photographs. You can also find apps that allow you to edit the photos. The phone takes very nice pictures too. Amazing quality for a camera on a phone.

The review you read may have had problems opening pictures because of, like any technology, it may have needed a simple restart or the file may not have went through correctly. That happened to me on the very first picture I had received. I started the app and phone (super easy to do) and was able to get the picture. Of course, that was just the beginning. Since then I've snapped and sent so many pics and received many as well.

You will have to either buy minutes $45 from Wal-Mart and add them to your phone or use the Straight Talk website and set up an account to add minutes to your phone. You can purchase 3, 6, or 12 months at a time but you must use at least the $45 monthly amount to keep your service active.

Sharon, "Prepaid" refers to the service offered by Straight Talk. It means that you are required to prepay for service at least a month in advance as opposed to being under contract and paying for service after you have used it. All Straight Talk phones used on their service are considered "Prepaid." You are also "Prepaying" for the bulk of the cost of the phone you purchase from them.

The big carriers (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) will offer the traditional contracted service where you are locked into a contract for either one or two years. You pay monthly for the previous month of service and usually are offered a free or a heavily discounted phone to use because you are committed to use the service for two years. You will have to pay an Early Termination Fee if breaking the contract and leaving before the two years is up. They also require a credit check before service begins to make sure you are not a "deadbeat" as they want to make sure you will pay each month.

The big carriers also offer Prepaid service.

Additionally, most MVNOs, like Straight Talk are Prepaid providers. There is no contract. No Early Termination Fees, no activation fees, etc. Prepaid providers do not care if your credit is good and don't care if you pay each month as you are paying in advance for service you use and you've also prepaid for the phone (usually the phone is offered at a slight discount but you are paying for the bulk of the phone's cost in advance ...so again, the provider does not care of you do not pay each month as they have the majority of their cost covered).

Chuchu, if you're still here and if you have not yet purchased that interim phone, the Samsung Galaxy Ace that I mentioned in my previous post has just become even a better deal.

I just noticed that Walmart is selling it now for $149.88 with a $50 Walmart gift card included which essentially brings the price down to $99.88 !!

This is an EXCELLENT deal for a phone with specs such as the S765C has. And it is confirmed that it does use the Verizon network.

I spoke too soon in my post below. There is a new Verizon (or I "think" its on Verizon) phone that Straight Talk is introducing and is now available at Walmart online.

It's the Samsung Galaxy Ace which has excellent specs for a $150-phone. It has an Android 4.3 JellyBean OS, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a front camera.

This might be a good interim phone for you until you can purchase either a S4 or S5.

Straight Talk has already offered the S4 and it wasn't offered for too long a period of time. I'm not so sure that Straight Talk will offer the Galaxy S4 again or not. When the were selling it, it used the T-Mobile network ...I'm assuming you want a phone that uses Verizon? My hunch is that ST will not sell it again but I don't have inside knowledge ...it's just my hunch.

Read about Straight Talk's S4 here (copy-and-paste):

http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2013/11/straight-talk-samsung-galaxy-s4-now.html

I'm not sure what the next new Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon will be. Straight Talk has just recently introduced the Moto G running on T-Mobile and the Alcatel OneTouch Sonic 4G LTE running on AT&T. It would have been nice to see one of them, especially the Moto G, running on Verizon but no dice. There haven't been any new Straight Talk Verizon phones introduced for awhile now so perhaps they are moving away from Verizon? ...not sure.

If you're not adamant about having a Straight Talk phone that uses Verizon, there are some nice choices for Straight Talk phones using GSM ...T-Mobile and AT&T. I'm one who likes the AT&T network so I'm personally happy to see all the new alternatives Straight Talk is offering, plus all the unlocked GSM phones that we can use with Straight Talk. Can't talk you into a GSM phone?

No, there are never any activation fees, re-activation fees, cancellation fees, or any other extraneous fees with Straight Talk.

HOWEVER, you will lose your phone number if you let service lapse more than 30-days. Straight Talk currently does not have any provision to "park" a phone number.

Therefore, if you want to keep your phone number, you will have to use a third-party "park" service which would necessitate porting your number back and forth to that third party to store the number for you for a small fee.

OR

...be assigned a new phone number when you re-activate service.
