Help with a Samsung Galaxy Centura


Saturday 22nd of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So, I recently got Straight Talk's Centura. But, there's something I'm really confused about. Whenever I plug my phone into my computer, instead showing up like it should, it just shows up as a portable device. The only options I have are to view the files in Windows Explorer (the folder is empty) or to sync files via Windows Media Player (when it opens WMP, it doesn't show as a device on the right side.) Does anyone know what to do? I just want to add music to my phone. Any help would be insanely appreciated. Thank you!

Data Connection Help


Sunday 14th of July 2013 / androidforums.com
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Centura with prepaid Straight Talk service. The problem is my data connection is slower than what it should be. I get 3g with full signal in my area, and it downloads at an average of only 15kb/s. My previous phone through Straight Talk was a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim, a much similar phone, and it would download at 100kb/s in the same area with 3g as well. I rooted it and changed the DNS to GoogleDNS and its not showing any real difference. Something seems not right about it. Any tips? Are there more effective DNS servers that I could use? Thanks for any help.

Help with a Samsung Galaxy Centura speaker.


Sunday 08th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I got a Samsung Galaxy Centura a few months ago, shortly after the speaker broke when I was listening to Pandora. A couple months passed, I didn't mind seeing how I could just use the headphone jack, I hit it on something and the speaker started working again. But it died again shortly after. What is a good way just to fix the speaker entirely so I don't have to go out and get a new phone? I highly dread getting a new one because I have a Blizzard mobile authenticator on it. So any help will be highly appreciated, thank you. c:

Solution for failed straight talk android system update samsung galaxy centura


Thursday 13th of February 2014 / androidforums.com
I have been having issues lately with a popup that keeps telling me that their is an android update for my samsung galaxy centura straight talk phone. Only problem is every time I tried to install it, it failed to install and showed an android guy on his back. After calling the worthless tech support at straight talk who barely can speak English I had them tell me that maybe my phone doesn't have an update available, it said why is it telling me one is available? I told them thanks for wasting my time and not helping me what so ever!My solution was to go to setting and in setting select the option to reset my phone to manufactures setting, of course back up your google contacts first but reset your phone. As soon as I did I got the android system update message, I selected install and it finally worked! Thought I would post this for anyone who tried straight talk tech support and got zero help. Hopefully this helps someone!

Ascend Plus -vs- LG Optimus Dynamic 2 -vs- ZTE Majesty


Wednesday 19th of February 2014 / androidforums.com
Hey everybody, I have had straight talk since July and love the service, I recommend it to everyone. I had a Samsung Galaxy Centura which was a pretty good phone all in all but its broken now and its time to trade in with my product replacement warranty. I dont just want a phone equal in capabilities to the Centura but want it to be an upgrade. one thing that it didnt have was a front facing camera or a flash so I def. am looking for that. It was also kind of laggy and it was a pretty basic beginner level smartphone so I want something thats more high end, I know that my choices are not super high end but I just want something thats a few steps up from the centura at least. I am not a phone snob and cant afford the fancier $200-300+ models available on ST, I just want a good solid working smartphone that is fast, with good quality display, that can do more than the centura could. I have it narrowed down to 3 that I like and now just need help figuring out which one.The first is the Huawei Ascend Plus. $129The second is the LG Optimus Dynamic 2 which just came out so theres not a ton

Headphone jack


Monday 03rd of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a Samsung galaxy centura and the headphone jack is junk. I can barely hear the music and it had a lot of static. I tried the dental brush and rubbing alcohol trick which helped, but it's still pretty bad. I have a parts galaxy centura with a good one, but how do I take the jack out of it to put in my current phone? Also, does any online stores sell just the headphone jack for these? Thanks for your help

Samsung Galaxy Centura wifi authentication


Friday 21st of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I recently changed routers to a NetGear Nighthawk. Everything else in the house works flawlessly with this, except my Samsung Galaxy phone. I added the new network but the phone will not ask me for the password connected with this router. It has a strong signal but the little lock shows up in the diagram and keeps saying authentication problem. The phone worked fine with my previous router. Help!!
