answer 3
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.

Question

Does this phone use Verizon towers?

I was going to go with one of the Best Buy plans because people complain about Straight Talk's service and how you may be without a phone for months after you ship it to Mexico. The guy at Best Buy said he wouldn't recommend his plans because they use Sprint and Verizon is about the only choice in my area.

You have to buy the straight talk airtime card to use this or you can buy the airtime with a credit/debit online when you activate the phone. For this phone its required that you buy the $45.00 unlimited plan. Which is the best deal for a smartphone plan in my area.

answer 5
No. The Activation card is what comes in the box with the new phone.. The Card has the serial number of the phone on it with instructions.. It has to be scanned first, of course, at the register when you buy it. You just install the battery, snap on the back cover..start charging your phone then call Straight Talk to activate. You will still need to purchase a Straight Talk Card before calling to activate.

When I activated my two new phones, we were able to keep our previous number. However, according the Straight Talk, this all depends on your previous carrier. Transfer took about 10 minutes per phone when I activated them. Very easy transfer in my opinion and could not be happier.

However, keep in mind that a carrier may not allow a transfer or be able to transfer a previous number for various reasons.

Yes, you can if you wanted to. Your current number must be an active number. Here are the steps to take.

1) Call your current provider and get your account and pin numbers. This includes Net10 and Tracfone services. These are required to port your number to Straight Talk.
2) Activate this phone on the Straight Talk website. Click Activate, then transfer number. Put the dot in Activate my Straight Talk Service with a number from another company. Be sure to use the exact same account information(name, address, etc).
3) You will need a service card for activation. This can be done at activation. This phone will only use the $45 Unlimited or the $60 International Unlimited.
4) After all activation steps have been completed you will usually have a full functioning phone within an hour or two 99% of the time
5) Enjoy your new Samsung Galaxy Proclaim

The "activation card" to which you may be referring is likely to be the card with the serial number. Free minutes do not come with the phone - and where would be the sense of activating it without the ability of using it?

The activation card is not the same as a TIME CARD. I agree it is rather misleading though, it should say it a bit clearer in my opinion. To be fair it does say in the big red box on the front "PURCHASE PHONE PLUS AN UNLIMITED SERVICE PLAN TO GET GET STARTED." I suppose we just tend to gloss over that part when we are excitedly buying the phone hehe :)

I bought my phone at 80303 (Boulder, CO). Bought it mainly because it is on Verizon. Took it to remote rural NE Iowa, zip code 50641. On a farm, real boonies, and with 3g was able to surf the web, get e-mail, dowload files and apps, take pix and send direct to Facebook...so, I've read that claim elsewhere and it's simply not true. This is a great advancement for pre-paid Android. Also, got lost looking for another farm 2 hours south of Des Moines. GPS worked flawless while car was moving, as did 3g, so was lost no more!
