Samsung Vitality/admire cell phone

I bought this phone used & locally from a private party.

It is for Cricket. I still have 2 months left on my tmobile contract. So when my contract with tmobile expires, I MIGHT decide to switch to cricket, or another carrier.

I know the vitality works cause it is in pristine condition.
I have been using the wifi too.

But even though I got the phone with the previous owners info erased, there is something that was not erased.
It is his former phone number in the settings part
(about phone>status>my phone number).

I redid a reset on the phone myself but it wont clear out his former phone number.
So in the event that I choose to stay with tmobile longer, I may end up selling this phone. But, whether I keep it or sell it, ...

I have straight talk from walmart for service they said I need another at&t sim card for this microsoft os phone for which he admitted they had no documentation on.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0....8GB space available?

I have had my Tab 2 for less than a week and since it has ICS and an internal memory is there anyway to do apps2sd. I mean of the so-called 8 gigs only 4.6 are showing available for me to use! That's bogus as hell. I am thinking of returning it for a NEXUS 7

Samsung Galaxy s3 ringtones

I have a simple question which I hope has a simple answer-- is there a way to custom set notification sounds, ringtones, and other sounds on this phone? It's my first smart phone (yeah I know, I'm behind) and it seems like something pretty basic.

If it can only be done through an app can someone recommend a simple one? I really just want to be able to use my own wavs or mp3's. I did find an app which allegedly changes the ringtone but it only seems to do ringtones, and I'd rather something that let me add notification and ringtone sounds.

I'm having problems playing streaming video

I have my phone service through Ntelos, but I purchased the Galaxy II S that was originally issued on the Sprint Network. I had the phone "flashed" and know I can use the phone on the Ntelos Network.

Here's my problem: I can only view streaming video's via Wi Fi. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is there a video application that will fix this issue?

Sprint, Ntelos and the company that flashed the phone were not helpfull.

Samsung's microSD Cards

Does anyone know if Samsung has previously made good quality microSD cards? Noting the newly advertised line of waterproof high performance microSD cards I am wondering if this is a new venture for them or if this product is something which they were know for in the past.

Also, is there any benefit to having a microSD card by the same manufacturer of one's device? I am awaiting delivery of a Galaxy S II.
