If you look at the coverage maps on the Straight Talk website, you will see two different coverage maps, one for android smart phones and one for non-android phones. All the android phones will use the Sprint network. Non-android phones will use Verizon or AT&T. I was going to buy this phone until I found out about the limited Sprint coverage.

Google Navigation and likely some of the best you'll ever use since it also includes Google maps and shows your location real time in movement on google satellite map images.

It has google maps pre-loaded. You can do a voice search, 'navigate to walmart' and it will give you directions. You can also type in an address, but voice search is safer while driving.

It is factual that the Straight Talk company is Trac Fone, however, each Droid and/or smartphone operates on different towers between AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Precedent is on the Verizon Towers.

No this phone is on Sprint, the only Straight Talk android phone as of now that runs on Verizon is the Samsung Galaxy Precident which is a very low-end android as far as hardware goes, 800mhz single core cpu which isn't that bad but it only has 384mb ram which basically kills the phone and makes it pretty useless for games and web browsing. The optimus Q is only slightly better with a 1ghz single core cpu and 512mb ram plus its on Sprint which is the worst part of this phone..Hope this helps

Go to http://www.straighttalk.com/ and choose "Shop" from the top menu and then "Phones".
Enter your zip code and you will get a list of phones that will work in your area. Pick your Android and then do a little research to see what network they run on. I have the LG Optimus Q and it runs on the Sprint network.
