I bought this phone at my local walmart after having another PP company for 6 years. Activation was simple and had no issues. I ported my number over and it took a matter of 15 minutes before I could make my first call. Downside to this phone is it only has 376MB of RAM, of which only 30-40MB is available to the user out of the box. For those that need clarification on this, it means that your phone will freeze and lock up, requiring a battery pull, when you run out of memory. so don't install to many apps. The CPU speed is not impressive at all. PLEASE be aware that this is not a completely supported device for google play. Most "Apps" will work, but a majority of games will tell you to request a refund as "your device is not compatible." Flash on camera will make the phone shut off, so do not use the flash. As far as the user interface, the biggest problem is that when you click on "Applications" button to give you a list of all your applications, it will NOT display them in alphabetical order and there is not way to change this! It displays them in the order in which they were installed and as soon as you update one, it will move it to the end of the list. I spend more time trying to find the app that I am looking for then anything. You can get around this by installing a "Theme" for the phone. they will put your apps in alphabetical order, however themes will cause your phone to quit responding, again requiring a battery pull. All in all, this may be a defective phone. I am going to exchange it for another and see if I have the same problems. This was suppose to be a lower level phone of the "higher bracket" android devices. I have one of the first androids that LG came out with years ago and that thing will blow the socks off this phone. I will update my review and let you guys/gals know how the replacement is. In my honest opinion at the moment, I would save your money and wait till a better phone is released. Knowing what I know now, I would not have bought this phone.....even if it was at half the price I originally paid for it. Oh..one last thing...DO NOT buy this phone or any straight talk phone unless you can tech support yourself. I had to call tech support and it took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get someone and the only useful advice they could give me was to restart the phone. I told them I tried that. She told me, "well I am sorry sir, but I am not sure what else I can do for you..."
