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 :)

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!

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
