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.

When changing phones or phone companys I just call my new phone company and ask them to transfer my phone number to the new phone. If I am changing companys my old phone must still be active or the new company can not transfer the phone number. As soon as the phone number is transfered to the new phone the old phone goes dead. The same goes if you are changing phones to a newer phone in your present company. Just transfer the phone number to the new phone and the old one goes dead. I have done business with 3 companys and it was the same with all three companys, to transfer my old phone number to the new phone. Also make sure you cancel your service with the old company even if your told you don't have to & write down the date and time or chance paying a full month of service on your old company. Hope this helps you.

No. Do not cancel your old service. Go to www.straighttalk.com and you can transfer your number there. This website completely takes care of everything you need it to do. They end your current service and move your number to the new phone. When you get to the st website click on Activate/Reactivate and it will give you 3 options. The 1 you'll want is Activate my Straight Talk phone with a number transferred from another company.
