Straight Talk website coverage map different for Android

According to the map, Android phones have very little coverage compared to other phones with coverage including the majority of the U.S.. Is the Android coverage really that bad?

The Android map only shows ATT or SPRINT Android phones. This phone runs off Verizon towers which is new to Straight Talk. It has the same range as all other Verizon phones. I have great coverage with mine and I've traveled from Indiana to Washington and Michigan and never had trouble.

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.

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.

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!

Answers
answer 1
Okay, I'll try Skype ... I'm not trying to avoid being charged for minutes, but both my homes have poor cellular reception and wi-fi calling would solve my problem, but only if I can call any number without them having to have some wi-fi app installed.
answered 2 years ago
By
Phoenixtoohot
answer 2
Google Voice...and use that in conjunction with Groove IP or Sipdroid. That should allow you to call any number without it adding to the amount you use with Straight Talk.

Google Voice on it's own will show as minutes used to Straight Talk, hence why you need one of two apps listed above.

Another option, although this one costs $3 per month is to use Skype. You will then be able to call any number. Of course, Skype to Skype calls are free.

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.
