Just to be clear: I am returning this phone, but only because 16GB is not enough memory for me. For 2 years I had an iPod 32GB, and for the past year an iPod 64GB. I am finally getting a phone so I have ONE device to tote around. Unfortunately, the iPhone 4S are no longer being produced with greater memory. If I could have bought one directly from Wal-Mart, I would have and been perfectly happy. It activated with Straight Talk pretty easily. I first tried to do it online, had a little glitch, and completed the process with the 800 phone number. It easily used the back-up information from my iPod. It connected seamlessly to our wifi. It really seems like a great little workhorse. I did not like that you can ONLY control the phone volume (i.e. the volume of people speaking to you) while on a call (at least as far as I can figure out) and I don't think it goes loud enough. I ultimately have purchased the iPhone 5 64GB. It has been a little more fussy with setting up the wifi (and I needed to have a call with Straight Talk customer support to get my data portion to work--they were very good to me, by the way), but it all seems good now. If you are not like me and don't feel the need to have a bunch of movies and music carried around with you at all times, and 16 GB will do it for you, then I definitely recommend this phone.
