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.

Look for a Samsung Illusion case (its the same phone just verizon branded) and you will find a lot more available for this phone.

Probably . . . for a little while . . . until they catch you - then it's bye-bye service - they will shut you down. No tethering is part of the agreement.

Yes. This Galaxy Proclaim uses Verizon.

Straight Talk also has the LG Optimus Zip, aka LG Enlighten, which also works on Verizon.

If you are looking for strictly Verizon phones from ST, look in the lower left corner of the box. You will see this code:

CDMA-V

That is the service type and the carrier.

Yes the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim works off Verizon. Since they don't offer the Samsung R355 anymore, I believe this is the only phone that Straighttalk has for Verizon.

Otterbox doesn't make a case for this phone that I could find, but there are plenty of hard cases and silicone cases that fit this phone. The phone will take any case that fits the Samsung Illusion (same phone, different name). I bought the case for my wife's Proclaim off of another online retailer that starts with an "A". :D

Does anyone have a problem with battery getting very hot or camera freezing?

I just upgraded to this phone and the battery gets super hot, super fast, doing simple things like checking email. I have also had problems with camera freezing and had to power off to get out of picture taking mode. I'm going to exchange for a new one hoping it was just a glitch with the one I got. I was wondering if anyone else had these problems. Thanks!

Yes, I watch Netflix on it all the time. Sometimes I use an App called "One Click RAM Cleaner" and this helps it run smoother. Or just start Netflix from a clean start.

The user agreement does not consider playing video to be "unlimited data" so turn off "Mobil Data" and use it over WiFi.

Be sure to keep the number you want to port active until the port is complete. I ported my Landline number to my Proclaim--it took 2 days! (Very good for a Landline port!) The guys at my Walmart Wireless store were SO HELPFUL getting me set up and going with StraightTalk!! They were Godsends! If you have a Walmart Wireless store in your Walmart--they will help you get started and answer your questions.

answer 5
If you have another carrier, such as Verizon or AT&T, you will want to call them to retrieve your account number and pin. Please bear in mind that your number MUST be active in order to port it.

After you have purchased this phone, go to the Straight Talk website and choose activation. Put the dot in "transfer number from another carrier" and enter the information that is required.

After you have gone through all the activation processes with this phone, it will become active with your current number, usually within an hour or two.

If you are going from one ST phone to another, you will simply want to choose the appropriate button again during the activation from the web. Your current ST number will then be moved this phone.
