answer 1
The International plan that straight talk offers is simply the ability to call from within USA (out) to the limited countries on there list that is supported.

you will not be able to make calls if you are actually in another country sorry.

answer 2
The International plan is only for calling out of the country, not to use the phone overseas.

This phone is LOCKED TO SERVICE within the USA only.

The answer below this is incorrect. The first answer is right on the money.

Yes, you can if you buy a 60 dollar international plan. Go to straight talk.com and they have a list of several countries where they provide international service. I travel abroad a lot so I investigated this right away.

There is no Otterbox for this phone.

You can find many quality hard plastic of soft gel cases on sites like Amazon, Ebay. You could also check your local cell phone retailer.

This Proclaim is the same phone as the Samsung Illusion.

Question

How much internal memory does this phone have?

Most prepaid phones seem to have so little internal memory that it basically limits how much a person can use the phone itself. It doesn't matter how much memory you add using a microSD card since many programs either do not support being transferred to the card or they store much of thier information on the phone itself rather than on the card. Even though I move as much as I can from the phone to the card, I tend to find my current phone fills up faster than I want it to.

I wouldn't worry about it, unless your phone is the only source of Internet and you do mass streaming of videos or music, if so there are many freeware apps that will monitor your net use for you.

There is actually a great app that you can get from Google Play that will track your data usage. I have it on my phone and works flawlessly and best of all, it is free.

It is called 3G Watchdog. Hardly uses any battery at all. Add it to a screen as a widget, set the date that your service ends. With just a quick glance you will know how much 3G, WiFi you have used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. It will even give you estimates if you keep your data usage constant.

This app is recommended highly.

And nevermind the negative votes in my postings. I have a stalker who has been following me around on this site. xD

answer 2
This phone has a virtual keyboard. There is no hardware keyboard like a slider phone.

There are options for the keyboard such as Swype, Qwerty, 3x4 keypad(old flip phone type), predictive text, and more.

Keyboard is a lot easier to type on in landscape(phone on its side), compared to portrait(holding phone vertical).

You should be able to port it over. Are you still in the same zipcode you were in when you got the number? You might want to check with Straight Talk first, if not.

You can easily distinguish carrier and type from the boxes.

GSM-A = AT&T
GSM-T = T-Mobile
CDMA-V = Verizon
CDMA-S = Sprint

These codes will be found on the lower left corner on the front of the packaging.

Yes you can.

Activation is not required to use wifi. If anyone tells you different, then you now know that they are lying to you.
