Hi. I guess I should start this out by confessing that I am a techno dummy.
Also if this thread is in wrong place on forum, feel free to move admins I only placed it here because I saw others here and assumed it was because the straight talk galaxy runs off the same towers as the At&T one??
I currently have the straight talk ZTE merit, and am considering updating to the straight talk samsung galaxy s2, but do have a few questions.
I noticed a few people complaining about not being able to change android systems and lack of developer options on this phone..I am pretty much a plugh and play phone user.
I do not root, unroot jail break, or anything like that, the only thing I have done with this ZTE is change the default app setting so that it saves to my SD card instead of the internal memory. Something that simple took me several hours, a few tantrums and several re-reads of the step by step instructions.
I just want a decent phone that I can browse the web, talk, and text. That is decently fast, has a responsive touch screen, a better responding "keyboard" function, that doesn't give me the low memory notification every time I am on Facebook and the cache runs up them memory LOL. (why do they make that app so big and unable to move it to the SD card?? gah)
I did not research the merit, and at the time it was the only "smart phone" that straight talk had, I had heard bad things about the proclaim and was afraid of the bring your own phone, as I heard of people having issues getting all the features to work with the straight talk sim. I don't want to put out the $350.00 and end up with another phone that I am not happy with, I just got the ZTE a few months ago and have been hinting to my hubby that I want the Galaxy for Christmas.
If the phone is indeed worth the purchase for my type of use, will I need to change the default save like I did for the ZTE? I am thinking I would not, since it has more internal memory, and I could let them download to phone then move what would allow to the sd card...If I DID have to change this, would I change it the same way I changed the ZTE using the platform tools thing...or would I have to have more tantrums and download more programs.
This...is the question I am most ashamed of...looking online for the otterbox for this phone I realized there are a bunch of Samsung Galaxy sII's our there, which one does straight talk use?
Please feel free to laugh at my dumb questions...just not too hard (at least in my face) LoL
thanks in advance for any help you can offer....
at any jokes at my expense
