I have a Straight Talk Samsung R451c. I keep trying to get Java apps on my phone. I called Samsung and they said it has Java, but Straight Talk disabled that and many more extensions from being downloaded onto the phone. They told me to call Straight Talk, so I did. They said it wouldn't be fair to the other customers if they told me how to enable downloading and Java. That being said, THERE IS A WAY TO HACK IT! Looking at the Samsung website seeing Java enabled is the ONLY reason I bought this phone. Click Here to see the Samsung specs. Not to mention I bought it on eBay for $108 w/accessories.I have another post in the Straight Talk forums, please help me out in trying to figure out how to do this. http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1609835
I recently got the Samsung T528G from Straight Talk and started poking around in the phone. While they say this phone doesn't have GPS capability, I found some menus for LBS (location based services). Some of the test settings appear to reference GPS locations, specifically in Texas. I am not familiar with all of the options and settings in the LBS screen, but is it possible the phone has GPS capability but it's disabled? If so, does anyone know how to enable it or what settings I might try?
I have an A T & T iphone 4 on straight talk. It will call, text and email like a pro, but after configuring APN settings, I can't get MMS to work, sending or receiving. Straight talk gave me the mms settings, but I have no way to enter that screen. I'm not jailbroken or unlocked.
Just purchased iphone4 and inserted new Straight Talk Micro SIM, and the phone says it does not recognize it. It fits perfectly...any reasons why it would not recognize it? The phone worked perfectly before on ATT.
I just got my Nokia E71 Straight Talk phone I downloaded Skype, updated maps and the phone worked fine. I bought a 16 GIG micro SD card put it in formatted it and now I can't find Skype, the GPS shows no maps even though I updated from OVI Suite. When I put the Card in that came with the phone it works. I did put songs on the new memory card and they work fine. What to do?
Hey there I am trying to use my LG Dare phone on the straight talk network... the straight talk network uses the verizon network but its sold though walmart and there is like 6 phones you can buy. I got an LG dare already I think there is a way this can be done anbody want to give me a tip or two... My e-mail is StoneComputers@live.com if you can't post the solution here
I am using a new I phone 4s on Straight Talk and I have only 1 to 2 bars maximum anywhere I go and then it will have no service at all.I was a previous verizon customer and had 4 to 5 sitting in my home now I have 1 or 2 and if I walk around sometimes goes to no service at all. Verizon did not have service everywhere I went but that was in hilly areas as I live in central Illinois and have talked to others with AT&T and they are getting better service than this as that is what towers Straight Talk uses. I am getting a Gel bumper cover and have already tried the black tape it did not help. It says I have 4 G sitting in house but cannot make a call and the 4G goes in and out also.
I have just purchased a Galaxy SII ... my only real problem is that there is quite a bad echo when I use the phone. this is noticeable by friends that have often rung me over the past few months. They all notice now I have my new phone that there is an echo when they talk to me. So, it seems that it is my phone causing it?
My BB Pearl 8120 picks up wi-fi fine, but I have just replaced my home router and it doesn't recognize it when I scan for networks, All other wireless devices in the house (TV, laptop, I-Pad, son's phone) connect no problem.
connecting nokia N8 to internet via Talk Talk router with WEP. I have just updated my Nokia's software and now I can use an internet because I'm getting error. I can connect to the router, there is a status "connected" but then the internet not working.
When I get a call the following things are happening: My phone will NOT ring, it will not show up as a missed call in the call logs, and lastly the only way I even know I received the call is if the caller leaves a voicemail. This all started about 3 weeks ago and was not doing this when I first activated the phone in December 2014. This is unacceptable and cannot continue to happen because I use this phone for business and personal use.
I want to make it clear that this does not happen with every phone call I receive. What I can do to stop it.
I was in a meeting this am waiting for an important business call. The phone was sitting on the table. I got a text telling me people were trying to contact me and I didn't answer the phone! It didn't ring. I've had it set for CDME/LTE because I live/work in a saturated 4G area. For some reason the phone read 3G with 4bars lit.No call. After multiple text messages the call came through. I've had people complain before that they've called when I've had the phone sitting next to me at work and it hasn't rung, and at other times it rings just fine.
I just bought a 9800 and cannot talk on the phone without it going to speaker, mute, or adding a participant to the phone call. I have tried locking the phone while talking, but still run into the same problems. Is there a solution? Do I need to just hold the phone 5 inches away from my fat cheeks? I know this is silly, but it is really irritating.
I've noticed during a conversation if I say "yes" or "uh-uh" (or make any comment) it cuts out the other person, almost like when call waiting clicks in or you get the notification that a text came in. It's long enough that I miss a word or two. It's not like the other folks where their fingers were over the mic. It's like you can't come close to saying a word unless the other person is completely silent for a few seconds.
I'm loving everything about the i4 but I simply can't get the phone to hold a signal long enough to talk while holding it because of either the hardware or software issues. I was just trying to call my wife to tell her there was a huge storm coming and she couldn't hear me after a few seconds when the bars started dropping.
I just went from the 8310 to the 9700 and right off noticed that I can no longer hold the talk button and pull up the address book while in the recent call list. From the home screen you can hold the talk button for a couple of seconds and it pulls up the address book but if you just tap the talk button it opens the recent call list. If you hold the talk button from there it tries calling the last number. Anyone know if I can change this to be like the 83xx?
Is there any way I can kick my phone straight to speaker when I answer it ? Maybe an app or something ? I know you can buy bluetooth speakerphones and stuff, but I'm cheap :P
Basically, I don't get a whole lot of calls anyway, just my fiancée and whoever I'm on the way to see at the time, and even less when I'm driving. So I figure there's no real point in spending out on a visor mount or headset (i hate those ****ing things anyway... either have to wear them the whole time or even harder to scramble for when you have a call) if theres a free alternative.
Today i am facing problem with my new mobile and the screen having straight red line in the middle of the screen.I tried to reset, factory reset and battery also removed, restarted. Nothing works.My phone having the default Android os with 2.3.4 version.
