SOURCE: Internet on iphone 3g??

Simply go to Settings > Wifi. If Wifi is off, turn it on. You'll see a list of available networks when you're in a hotspot. You can also have iphone tell you when you're near hotspots by turning on "Ask to Join Networks." You won't be able to use the internet when you're not in a wifi hotspot.

SOURCE: Unlock Eris from Verizon so that I can use it with

You cannot do this. Straight Talk only allows phones with specific MEIDs on their network. You could use your Eris with PagePlus, another prepaid provider that uses the Verizon network. They have a 1200 minute/2000 text/100MB plan for $29.95/month.

Officially, your Straight Talk Wireless Unlimited plan does not allow tethering. (That is using your phone directly as a modem and wi-fi router for another device.) You will need to purchase a Straight Talk mobile hotspot device (like this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-WiFi-Mobile-HotSpot-3G/30824075 ) and a Straight Talk hotspot plan. The Straight Talk hotspot plans are not unlimited. (There are 30 day 1GB or 2 GB plans and 60 day plans that allow you to use 4-7 GB.) See http://www.straighttalk.com/wps/portal/terms%20and%20conditions/!ut/p/b1/fZDJkqJAAES_xQ_QWiiK8sgqMIBMsVoXwg0abEDFbpGvbzpiLnPozltGvkPGAwLsiISoQphEQA5Et_-sq_2j7rv9-3cXtDCg60t_VRtLDpahYzlbdy1LWLUoyEBuH4fRGPzKMA1-w_yN6zt-s-PBF16ATa3fjL4loWXw0U1XgzOMzQYiDWWEiDPe3j7qxzI87lNpEqfxRMjYl5qZH96udPKq4kKHtgz6tKT1eNezbnP06-j5nt9eob4eumXGu9Krol3dDKE2jUXZa-ZZNsZqsQC7-bxSaMxLnHQ-7yYWgyoja079BENEQQxySIqoeV2d6TLxBo5eHKd-YKI_6IK2UWNHwcF8Ro8Nig3hwmbejJPjK8kzTobRD-zwlPJEU7X7Gus6cIGoD-3qeWxXcCVjqGDGGGKIypSBTJtlif99cluZfYa2Hm2UABKo_A5sLfwPgD9EhSCw-_YMWnGX7_Jn5CzVxRfzNhgu/dl4/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/?urile=wcm%3Apath%3A%2Fstraighttalk%2Ffooter%2Fterms%20and%20conditions for the restrictions of the plans.

Is my rca viking 10 tablet conpatble with straight talk service were is serial # @


The RCA tablets are cheap and cheerful entry level tablets. It does not have telephony capability, so you can't get a data plan with it. You can only use at home if you have wifi with a company. 'straight talk' is a cellular provider and the RCA isn't a cellphone. if you have a Straight Talk phone, you can tether the RCA to it using BlueTooth. Without that, you can use it to do anything, but if you want to access the internet, send stuff like email, or chats, you have to be on wifi.

Can't get connected to internet without wifi access


Make sure to turn data on. Go to settings, cellular, and turn on cellular data. If you cannot do that, then you do not have data to access the internet off of the grid, per say.

Why am i losing my internet connection before my data bundle expires/depletes


Suggest you contact your internet provider and see if there is some problem on their end. Also ask if you have exceeded their data plan of usage.
For example my Straight Talk phone plan states unlimited data, text and internet access, however in fine print I only have 2GB's of data.
Hardly 'unlimited' wouldn't you say?

It makes it so for example, that only so many videos can be watched on Youtube, etc.
Once the 2GB limit is reached that's it folks!

Why is my YouTube on my straight talk phone not working?


Just guessing, but I would think that the Straight Talk guys would rather not have any app that requires constant bandwidth usage to be working on one of their phones. This is assuming that you have a flat rate plan that gives you unlimited talk, text and data. Frankly, I don't believe the unlimited data portion because that ends up being the costly portion for Straight Talk or any other carrier. And that is obviously why most plans set a limit on the data portion.Your best bet would be to check with Straight Talk to see why you can't access YouTube.

If the texting works but the Multimedia messaging does not. It would likely be an interruption of your data services. Most wireless providers can't send picture messages on wifi. So please make sure wifi is turned off and the the phone has Mobile Data turned to ON. This can be reached usually under [apps] [settings] [Mobile Network] Data enabled should be checked.

If i surf the internet then charges is applicable from my balance


Unless you have a Data plan on your account then, yes - you'll be charged for your Internet usage. If you have a pay-as-you-go account, Internet usage will be deducted from your available balance. (Read: Less minutes to talk). Without a Data plan, surfing the Internet is VERY expensive.

If you plan to both, use the Internet a lot from your phone and talk and text a lot, too (and you want a pay-as-you-go account) and if you have iDEN service in your area then Boost Mobile would be your best choice. (If you have Sprint service in your area then you'll have Boost service as well.)

And, For every 6 on-time payments, Boost will lower your monthly payment by $5. You'll start off at $50 per month for unlimited service and 18 months later you'll only be paying $35/month for unlimited Internet, talk and texting. It's the best deal out there.
