When taking a picture I was surprised that it turned the picture sideways for my phone- so i took it sideways then it was right side up. Qwerky little issue but other wise find it a great value for the money. I LOVE the QWERTY keyboard-a great time saver when adding the old contacts to my new phone.
I just purchased this phone- it seems fine and i like the options. It has 4-5 bars at my house. No problem with set up once I turned the phone off and then on again. it took a few minutes for my phone number to appear. I used a new number because I had no connections to the old one and the literature said transferring a number might take 2 days. One caution is to read the instructions FIRST. Apparently if you enter a number into some code entry on the phone you could ruin your phones ability to work. So just do not enter codes randomly and READ first. I wondered why they left such a critical entry area available to impulsive people who do not read first-I ALMOST entered the code there thinking that is how to activate then thought I should read first. Glad I did.
Staright talk free refurbished phone that is new in every part of it I can touch. skeptical I purchased less than unlimited monthly card with it. I will go unlimited next month. sure it isn't the fastest on the internet but the sound is great and service is verizon towers i guess. a slider qwerty phone that they obviously replace the keyboard on so its new. easy set-up easy use I am very pleased and I will buy another if needed. For free it wouldn't even be worth a hassle of trying to learn a new language for warranty anyway. Can't believe what a deal this is so far I recommend this phone highly. p.s. a friend bought a new one at walmart and there is NO difference at all. Go to straighttalk.com and see what samsung or refurbished phones they have its a deal I wouldn't believe unless I was holding it in my hands. check the return policy out in full though and for free be prepared to write it off is what I say despite the deal it is...good luck

I have an mp4 video in my files, but there is no option to view it...any ideas? Thanks!
I have loaded mp3 files onto the music player and created a list but the phone insists on playing the tracks in reverse order? These are teaching mp3's and the order in which they play is important. I feel the manual that came with the phone is very inadequate and assumes a person knows more than they do. How can I get the player to play the tracks from the first to the final track instead of reverse order???? This is my first phone with online capacity and just learned about texting and a little about facebook. I include this info hopefully to show my knowledge level with the phone.
Not a bad phone for the money. It's a little slow on the internet, and the keyboard takes some getting used to.
I just bought it for 100$(way over 30) also it doesn't come with a service card so +30-45

Pain in the rear, but at least that works LOL
Is it possible to import your own ringtones and use them on the phone? Or can you only use ringtones that are bought through the ringtone service the phone provides?
I bought this from net10 a couple weeks ago and like it so far; it takes better pics than my previous phone (Motorola EM326g) & also makes video clips though not very clear IMO. I like the qwerty keypad my last phone didn't have; however it doesn't have an fm radio like my last phone...which I still use just for the radio.
One thing I've discovered, that I don't like, is that I can't attach mp3 files in SMS messages; only the midi or amr will attach. The motorola allowed that. I can bluetooth mp3s to others, but not send a cute little "kiss-kiss" sound I downloaded. So I don't know if there's a way to convert an mp3 file or if I have to just find midi or amr files to download.
I also mentioned/asked in a previous post about my ringing setting...somehow it got set to ring quietly & get louder; I don't like that & can't figure out how to get it back to "normal."
Still getting the hang of the phone; overall I like it a lot.
My phone has somehow been set to ring softly, gradually getting louder. I don't like that setting, don't know how it got that way nor can I find how to set it to just ring normally. Anyone??
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2010(same person) OK; I googled for an answer and found it on this site: http://www.best-prepaid-... more*Update...turns out there was a problem w/my phone's browser; contacted net10 (my carrier) & they corrected it. 500 is the right gateway #...for my phone anyway.
Great little phone for the price! I paid $25 + $1.50 shipping that included 750 minutes from NET10. Good deal! Question... I have transferred a folder of music to the microSD.I can play the tunes from the memory card but the player won't advance to the next song on the list. It replays the current song. I have to select the next song manually. How do I move the tunes to a playlist. I think I tried everything. Any information would be appreciated.
angela, 22 Nov 2010can someone please tell me how to access the video recorder? I bought the phone because Net10 ... more There's a small button on the side of the phone that you press (after sliding-or "unlocking" phone ) to bring up the camera.When the camera is visible,press menu button to activate the camcorder. Enjoy.......
