1. yes - uses up mintes but not long distance that's why they are called toll free.
2. not sure - but if you are worried about virus through the phone, don't. I have yet to hear about them.
3. nope - no text message but your phone will show, normally a red dot or something.

1 yes anytime you are on a call it uses booster minutes.

2 you dont NEED one but there are some good options out there, i personally use Lookout free version, which also offers services to find a missing phone, and a neat feature that snaps a photo of a person trying unsuccessfully to unlock your device and emails it to you

3 not a text message but the phone will lets you know there is a message with a notification

Definitely use a Antivirus app and keep it updated by just going into the app every so often and it will immediately let you know there's an update to the virus database. Download this one, it's the one ai use and it comes with a bunch of other great features & can even make sure you don't have apps sending you push ads to your notification pane. You can also find your phone with it or block unwanted calls /texts. it's great.
