Mike Cook: For anyone who has the time problem on this phone or a slow-loading
notification bar, clear the system cache every week or two. Since I've
started doing this weekly, I've had no problems. To do this, when you turn
the phone on hold the volume up key and the power key simultaneously. This
will take you to recovery mode. Then use the volume down key and select
"wipe system cache" and press the power button. It only takes a second and
then reboot is highlighted. Pres the power button to reboot and you're done.
This doesn't affect any of your apps or personal data & settings like a
factory reset, it just re-formats the android system cache so it's
Jill Haugh: Thanks for your time on this. Very helpful and thorough!
myusetoob: I got the regular Samsung Galaxy Centura through Tracfone. Do I get monthly
notifications from Tracfone that my monthly minutes have been added? And
how do I check on the phone my current minutes balance? HELP Please!
trajan white: how do you root?
Theresa Cryer: do i need to (root) my centura phone and what is that anyway
The reason i ask is i think something maybe wrong with it. Or maybe i just
dont fully inderstand it all yet
cjalmighty: Could this phone work with an AT&T SIM card or is it just a Verizon phone?
Nicholas Chapman: I would not use this phone. I'm currently using it because my Samsung
Precedent had battery issues. Just spend a little extra and get the ZTE
Majesty. It runs Android 4.1, has a better camera, bigger screen ect. The
Centura freezes and crashes a lot.
brianna stephenson: can i download snapchat on that phone
Steve Lexa: Yep going tomorrow to pi ck one up,thanks for the info
Tyler Ross: Walmarts black Friday sale for this phone is only $29.00. I'm gonna get it
and I appreciate your review. Its definitely a down grade from my phone but
I had this phone for a year and a half and I'm not gonna pass up a new
phone for $29 lol
M Clark: Would I be able to put my current SIM card (At&t) in there and just use the
phone with my current plan?
Mmstudios03: Mastermood i think this is a upgrade from the galaxy proclaim
Because on the proclaim cant upgrade to ics (ice cream samwich)
Charles Ashworth: samsung doesn't support the centra and straight talk can't . the reeturn
policy is to delay as lkong as possible and to delay past the 2 wk. limit
on all rerturns. straIGHT TALK CAN HOLD YOUR MONEY FOR 30 DAYS WHILE THEY
USE IT TO THEIR BENIFIT. iv'e heard of no samsungs that worked properly or
Charles Ashworth: samsung is junk stay away from them the app store won't work and you can't
get an english speaking rep at straight talk
Charles Ashworth: I feel the centra is a piece of crap. you can't get the apps down load to
work and support is a long wait
Patricia Archuleta: How can I add more preset quick response.
Mmstudios03: Does it come with a music holder app to hold ur music becuz i like music
Starr B: Great review!! Thanks!
zachary parsley: How u root this phone to jellybean
xctome: i have this phone, and the box it came it said CDMA-V witch means it will
work off and only work off Verizon towers. on the Straight Talk box in the
lower left corner of the front of the box, it will say CDMA-V = Verizon
,CDMA-S= Sprint ,GSM-A= AT&T ,GSM-T = T-Mobile.
Paula Hergert: Just bought this phone will exchange for the Samsung Proclaim the charger
is one thing I do like since its also a usb cord
Mmstudios03: Chad bates the camera on the ztes are grainy
Mmstudios03: Why dont u do unboxings
Mmstudios03: Wen ur on messaging press the menu button and click insert smiley and its
like a emoji for android
Mmstudios03: I dont see why it is 4.0 because u can pit messaging beside the call button
CokeBomb5: the ad right before this was the dumbest thing ever.
Simmie Lowery: I love this video, since you are so familiar with this phone, I need your
help. I dropped mine and broke the screen, I can only see a triangle of the
screen which is the top right side. I want to transfer all my contacts and
data to my SD card, would it be possible for you to do me a video showing
me how to do this, maybe just by watching you do it I can follow along and
know where the buttons are located where mine are now invisible, Thanks.
Chad Bates: Actually I like Android 2.3.6, it runs netflix great. Just got a ZTE 1.0ghz
with it, and it works great. Super solid phone, super loud speakers, way
better than this. I like the interface better. I tried 4.1 Jelly Bean,
lagged a lot, speech to text sucked big time. Also mine (ZTE Illustra) came
with a 4gb card. WARNING:When you change the original card it can cause
glitches, with any phone, I recommend sticking with the stock one. If it
comes with one. Also the ZTE has a 5.0mp Camera.
rakesfunnyfarm: I've a few people the same. So I'm looking into the ZTE Valet.
halfasser: yep should
Day Time: Will the phone's WIFI work without phone activation??
cc10121492: You didn't tell us if it can use Kik messenger and how would that work with
the limited internet. You wasted our freaking time!
Fahad Fawaz: Does this have a gravity/accelometer sensor by any chance?
shannon dulaney: If i ever get one of these phones im gettin it on net 10
gokartin44: i just bought one of these and installed netflix, yet i find that the
playback stops/starts about every 30 seconds, as if it's trying to buffer
all the time. my wi-fi is plenty fast, new modem, etc. netflix works fine
on my other cell phone (HTC desire). do have any suggestions how to make
netflix run continuously on the Centura? is there a way to alter any
jessica mayola: I have a ZTE Merit which has worked flawlessly for almost a year now,
quirky in some areas, but that's more the service you have than the phone
itself. I was thinking of getting this phone, but truth is, do I need it,
nope. Great review though.
jessica mayola: It's nice but I don't think a whole lot of people watch Netflix full movies
ON their phones. In fact I don't know anyone who does. Most people use
these phones for FB, Youtube which works great on any of them, TEXTING
100%, few pictures here and their. Even the ridiculous amount of money
people spend on Iphones people don't use HALF of what's on them. As I
mentioned mostly texting. And you can do that with a 50 dollar blackberry,
also they have an actual camera BUTTON. ;o)
Miranda Galloway: My Centura is absolute garbage. I will be replacing it ASAP. The GPS didn't
work right and said I was located 50-100miles from where I actually was. I
FINALLY got that straightened out. The phone is often laggy even though I
don't push it hard and don't keep it full of apps. And it will randomly
vibrate in warning that it has lost signal...in a spot where it normally
has fully signal. I have to power phone off and on to reconnect with
towers. This has resulted in important missed calls.
murphull: Does the charger for the Proclaim fit the Centura?
rose: Are you serious? The only way to tell how many minutes you have in the bank
is to go to Straight Talk or Tracfone's website. Sorry total dealbreaker.
quantum radiation: What type of screen does it have. Capacitive or Resistive. Please respond.
jakobi mccaskey: I heard samsung galaxy discover is better
Makayla Davis: Can I use a galaxy discover case on this phone?
brendalg4: I don't have the phone so I can't say if its good or bad. I have an LG840G
killergamercat: Just bought it.
brendalg4: Oops that could be misleading. What I meant was if you connect to a free wi
fi signal, there is no charge for data.
RABIDWOLFAIRSOFT: ikr i order it from HSN today i should be in about a week the only sad part
is that it has no front facing camera
brendalg4: Through TracFone the wi fi is free. I don't know about other carriers.
shannon dulaney: I look up this phone on straightalk and u (can get) a 32 gb sd card
