A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone. Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networ

Can not connect to wifi on galaxy centura


Wednesday 14th of August 2013 / androidforums.com
Samsung Galaxy Centura Model # SCH-S738C with Straight Talk. I can not connect to my home wifi. I just got this 1 today. Took the 1st one back due to ringing issues. I know I can use the carriers network. BUT if it is down and all I have is my home wifi to make calls through. Any suggestions (LOL) other than taking it back and getting another from Wal-Mart.

use wifi on un-activated phone?


Saturday 28th of September 2013 / androidforums.com
Just bought a Samsung galaxy centura ST phone from walmart, but don't plan on activating it for a month until my old phone's balance is used up. I would like to start using the apps at home using wifi but nothing works. For example Maps says 'Newtowk failure This application requires a working data connection.' Chrome says 'unable to connect to the internet' or 'this webpage is not available.'I connected to my secure home wifi, it says connected. The wifi symbol on the right side of the status bar, next to the cell bars and battery indicator, is grey and has two tiny arrows pointing up and down that blink intermittently. I should be able to use my wifi, shouldn't I?

3G Issue with Samsung Centura


Thursday 17th of October 2013 / androidforums.com
I have two Samsung Galaxy Centura phones from Wal-Mart with Straight Talk/TracFone. One works great between wifi and 3G. The other rarely recognizes the 3G, unless you turn the phone off/on. I've tried calling for support but all I get is the standard "call in to reprogram" which doesn't help. Also tried switching 3G/wifi on and off, but that only works sometimes. Both phones are used from the exact same area, but only one has this issue. Any suggestions?

App to analyze what's being transmitted with my wifi?


Saturday 02nd of November 2013 / androidforums.com
I NEVER EVER use wifi on my Samsung Galaxy Centura because the few times I've turned it on something (somethings) must be going on in the background that totally hog up the CPU of my phone....... Therefore I can't do anything. I would like to be able to use this to get to the Play Store vs always using my 3G signal. I see the "blue" wifi signal at the top of the screen, and there's an up arrow (as if "upload"?) flashing in it.......... and it goes on and on and on. How can I determine what is going on...... and then stop it so that I can use wifi with my phone? Is there an app that will let me see what the wifi is transmitting? Thank you!!!

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!!
