Never. This is a GSM phone. The G at the end of the model number tells you that. Verizon doesn't have a GSM network. Their network is CDMA. So you will never see this exact model on Verizon or from Straight Talk on Verizon's network.

A good way to figure out which phones run off of verizon towers and which ones run off of att towers is to look at the front of the box where it says "on one of america's best networks" (something like that) there is a Icon of the the US in blue or red. The blue is att and the red is verizon, although it doesn't say this on the box, trust me I've had straight talk for almost as long as its been around. I had a phone that ran off verizon towers first and now I have the new samsung 528 and it is running off att.

You might find some apps, but don't count on lots of apps being available. This phone does not run a major OS like Android. Yes, it can run apps, but I doubt that there are tons of people writing apps for this OS.

For covers, check Ebay. Here's a link:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/Cell-Phone-PDA-Accessories-/9394/i.html?_nkw=528g&_catref=1&_dmpt=PDA_Accessories&_fln=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282

And any truck stop or dollar store sells generic covers. If you want to pay a little more shop at a national drugstore or electronics store like Walgreen's or Radio Shack. If you want authentic then go to an AT&T store which carries accessories for the 528G.

And while you're at it you might pick up the Data Cable too. Ebay has them for under $5, here's a link: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=528g+data+cable&_sacat=9394&_dmpt=PDA_Accessories&_odkw=528g&_osacat=9394&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Ever since I have been looking at buying this phone I have been looking for a cover because I like to stand out. Well, they dont make covers for this particular phone, but the Samsung Eternity 2 A597 is just like this phone. They are both designed the same. So if you go on Ebay you can get a case off there pretty cheap by searching the Samsung Eternity 2 A597. Hope this helped !

Of course!! It has a qwerty keyboard. If you get the $30. a mon. plan you can have 1000 texts and 1000 min. but with the $45. a mon., it's unlimited everything!

Yes! However the keys are very small and close together which results in you typing the wrong key at least 3 times before getting it correct or you end up deleting the word or sending it before you are ready! It's a headache and you can't use a stylus!

Not sure where everyone is getting the idea that the $30 "All You Need" card works with this phone. Straight Talk says that you MUST use the Unlimited $45 card for this phone.

You will need to pick up a micro SD card at Walmart that has an adapter with it if you ever plan to transfer pictures etc to your PC from your phone. I currently have an 8GB SanDisk micro SD card in mine which isn't expensive to get and its easy to use the save option with this phone! I hope this helps!
