I'm having the EXACT same problem and it started on the 9th... interestingly, a little less than one week earlier, my LG 220 from StraightTalk also had this problem. I don't think it's an LG problem... I think it's the provider. They're replacing my phones. This process takes about 2 weeks to complete since you have to mail them the malfunctioning phone and then wait for the replacement to show up. I'm irritated that it takes so long and that it seems likely to be a problem in the future.

I recently got the sciphone i68 4G and when I put my straight talk SIM inside the phone I can't make out going calls.. What can I do about this problem????

Straight Talk sim cards are much like net10 or tracfone sim cards as in they are "phone specific" sim cards. Meaning those cards are coded to work only on the phone they come with. If you wanna go the pre-paid route I suggest you get an at&t gophone sim or tmobile prepaid sim. Both are available at their respective stores. *quick tip* If there isn't an at&t store close to you, you can pick up a cheap $10-$20 gophone at wal-mart or such store and swap sims after activating the "real" at&t phone.

Where I can get the batteries changed and how much it will cost.

The batteries are hard to find in order to replace them, I would suggest purchasing a new one from wal-mart and swap the batteries and return the one you bought for a refund, Wal-mart will send the one your return to the factory for a repair anyhow so no harm.
