Numerous features have been disabled, such as near field communication (NFC, Google Wallet-type functions), the ability to tether, Adobe Flash, and, most importantly, I was told by TracFone that there will not be any OS upgrades. You're (we're stuck on Gingerbread 2.3.6).
Finally, after 6 weeks the phone has developed data connection issues, and I have gotten no support from Straight Talk.
Bottom line: I regret buying this phone, and I regret being on Straight Talk.
Ruddy-can you take your phone to another carrier like t-mobile or at&t? I appreciate your feedback and honesty. Do t-mobile or at&t have prepaid plans that aren't related to ST?
