You need to close the back plastic tight so it will not let water in. Follow the instructions that come with the manual.

Got the Blu Tank 4.5 beginning of January 2014. I was an Outstanding Verizon Member for the past 8 years. and Left them for a sweet offer by a local shop, that would save me money and offered me this Blu phone for free if i sign a 2 year contract with them. we after being in Verizon for 8 years anything different gotta be better right?
LOL... Anyways now i am stuck we with 2 Blu Tank 4.5 phones with only 2 GB memory on the phone. and Does not allow to transfer apps to SD card, and for that matter doesn't allow really anything to transfer to SD. i even tried on the PC and there isn't no option to swap files. on top of it all i lost the coating on the cam lens and the place that sold me this phone will not replace it. More so, this +1 addon to all my Phone numbers is so Annoying. I just want to get rid of this Phone, Prepaid Phones have more internal memory that this phone has. and for the SD Card its pointless on this phone. Now its goona cost me 300 bucks to get of it the contract i signed. Don't make the same Mistake as me. Look at the Reviews before making the Buy!!

Was excited that I got a fone close to what I always wanted. But disappointed about the battery which runs down within a couple hrs. although I was told to remove apps and removed almost all. Another big issue
is the internal which says one thing and the fone gives you something else

I really like the phone. The battery does use up quick, but have no need to use the gps, and wifi except upon occasion. Turn those off when not needed, and the battery lasts for the day.
Also, anyone having problems with mms and Straight Talk BYOP, here is the fix:


The fix for those with the Straight Talk service, and mms problems...
The APN needs to be: tfdata mms
Make sure the space is in there. The rest of the BYOP directions for setting up the APN are correct. I don't know why they don't have that info online at their site, or the docs that come with the BYOP package. I spoke with 2 different people at ST, before I got this one little piece of info, that you absolutely need.
This worked for my Tank 4.5 running Jelly Bean 4.1.1

Like it, but after 4 months and 8 apps later...used only 3/4 or the memory and 1/4 of xtra SD card memory but now when I go to google etc. It shows a yellow or red horizontal bar on upper right of screen and says "low memory" and then turns off my google. What is that all about and how do I stop it. Thx KK

this phone looks good feels good has the right price but it does not work well. if your 4g is up on one sim you lose calls on the other. connectivity is poor.it constantly needs to be rebooted and it freezes just like blackberry
