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.
FAIR camera, @best.

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. But worth the wait for the number iIve had for 34 years!)

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.

If you currently have an unlimited service plan then you can just transfer that number and service to the new phone and use the rest of your time, but if you have the $30 all you need plan then you will need to purchase a new unlimited service plan before activating your number on the new phone.

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?

answer 2
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!
