THIS PHONE REQUIRES A $45 STRAIGHTTALK PREPAID CARD. YOU USE THIS CARD TO ACTIVATE THE PHONE. iT WILL NOT WORK WITH ANYTHING LESS. YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR AUTOMATIC REFILLING WHICH WILL DEBIT YOUR ACCOUNT $45 PER MONTH AND SAVE YOU THE HASSLE.

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.

I think they are one and the same. If you do not have an airtime card of $30 or $45 the phone can not be activated unless you have auto refill on your present phone.

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.

No it is not a airtime card. An activation card gives you the phones serial number that allows you to get the phone activated for the first time without having to find it on the phone or in the phone.

Answers
answer 1
As long as your current phone number is active, your the primary account holder, you know the account number, and the account password. Be warned though, prepaid to prepaid number ports can be complicated. In fact any number port can be complicated. Straight Talk customer service handles all of this for you. You will need to call on another phone to activate your straight talk phone.

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.

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!

The speaker phone works fine, I can hear fine and people can hear me when I use it. It also has talk to text and voice dial features that are very nice. I would caution, however, that my phone occasionally loses connection on the receiving end... I can hear them, they cannot hear me. I will be returning mine for a new one to see if it is just a bad egg.

Someone above said that the Precedent is TMobile--actually the Precedent is Sprint. The Proclaim is Verizon. And yes, you CAN port a Landline (someone above said you usually can't)--I ported my Landline to Straight Talk in 2 days (good time for a Landline, they take longer.

Sometimes, an old cell number can be transferred, but usually not a land-line.

Verizon towers seems to be the usual, but I assume any tower may be used, when roaming, regarding ST agreements.

It works great; don't hesitate; you won't regret it. I've had Blackberry, etc., and this is the best.

When you activate it, provide them with the zip code to your Home Town and they will assign a related number. The Proclaim runs on Verizon Towers with the similar Precedent running on T-Mobile.

Your local cell phone dealer that is not branded Verizon/AT&T, etc.

You can also check amazon, ebay, and other cell phone sites. Probably will not find an Otter Box for this phone as they have never made one for a prepaid device.

The Samsung Illusion is the exact same phone as this, though the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim will yield lots of results also.
