It depends upon the packaging/actual phone. I prefer Verizon, so I had to make sure the package label lists the code. Check your code if any preferences (I'm not sure how ALL codes look, but they ARE on the front of the package)

YES-YES-YES!!! The Proclaim uses Verizon Towers! (I'm not sure Verizon wants everyone to know this because their Illusion is almost the EXACT model!)The Proclaim & the Illusion use all the same accessories--can't find a Proclaim cover? Illusion cover will fit--as well as other accessories.

From what I was told when I asked that question was that Verizon towers are used BUT Verizon contract customers are priority, then Verizon pre-paid are 2nd, then 3rd party prepaid users (such as Walmarts Straight Talk) are last. So if the towers are being slammed with usage 3rd parties take a back seat........

Yes it does. Verizon is NOT Straight Talk. Verizon will tell you what they have to in order to sell you on their prepaid or contract program. Also the people at Verizon don't have the information regarding Straight Talk's contracts with companies. Call Straight Talk if you have questions like this, they actually know.

Yes, It works via Verizon tower. I was unable to activate this phone and to make phone call, because it uses only one tower in Toms River, NJ. I visited Verizon store and they checked phone number and informed me that my phone number was attached to those Verizon tower in Toms River,NJ and I live in central NJ and that is why I was unable to make phone call. I couldn't get dial tones on this smart phone. I returned it back. You will be able to use this smart phone, if you live near tower in Toms River, NJ.

Unfortunately it is unable to scan barcodes. This is due, I believe, to the fact that the camera is a fixed focus camera. I have tried to scan barcodes all different ways with this and have had no luck.

Actually...IT DOES NOT! No matter what app you have. The camera (or atleast mine) cannot focus enough to scan it. After about ten minutes it may get a scan and state it cannot be found. I was very dissapointed . I use my galaxy player as a scanner and it does a beautiful job. I waqs hoping to have one on my phone with internet access when I am shopping.

The camera is better than I thought it would be but I would say it is only "fair" at best. It's not as good as my wife's Motorola Droid with 8 mp but if just sending pix to your friends and family the Proclaim is more than adequate. It probably wouldn't make very good prints.

I don't suggest this phone IF camera is a priority. While MegaPixels are not the only concern with any camera: Only 3MP, unlike some Samsung w/8MP; video is low/no HD, etc., color rendition for stills is rather POOR, even compared to my non-'smart' Samsung, even though you can customize the settings/light-source, etc.
FAIR camera, @best.
