Questions & Answers for Straight Talk Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Prepaid Cell Phone

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.

Straight talk works. You have to know what phone works in your area. Sprint is smallest network. Att verizon T-Mobile each have one or more phones on straight talk. You need to ask friends and family what works for them. Then buy that carrier on straight talk

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.

the activation card gives you the info you need to activate this phone. NO ITS NOT AIRTIME. I get my airtime off of ST's website with the auto-refill. Never have to go buy a card that way.

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.

Hi Charlie. Yes this is a Straight Talk CDMA Android phone that does use Verizon native networks. However, I recommend you read the reviews, as there is an issue common to this model. The other Straight talk CDMA Android is the LG Optimus ZIP. You may want to consider that one as well. At the time of this writing, Those 2 are the only CDMA Androids available from Straight Talk. That means that those are the only Androids on Straight talk that use Verizon. There are other non-droid CDMA phones that use Verizon such as the Samsung 355, etc. I recommend going to www.howardforums.com and search the Straight Talk threads there. Cheers!

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.
