Someone above said that the Precedent is TMobile--actually the Precedent is Sprint. The Proclaim is Verizon. And yes, you CAN port a Landline (someone above said you usually can't)--I ported my Landline to Straight Talk in 2 days (good time for a Landline, they take longer. But worth the wait for the number iIve had for 34 years!)

You can purchase the phone where ever you want to. You have to activate it online I believe. Walmart won't activate it for you. I purchased mine online and had it within 3 days. Yes, this phone works on Verizon towers.

Sometimes, an old cell number can be transferred, but usually not a land-line.

Verizon towers seems to be the usual, but I assume any tower may be used, when roaming, regarding ST agreements.

It works great; don't hesitate; you won't regret it. I've had Blackberry, etc., and this is the best.

When you activate it, provide them with the zip code to your Home Town and they will assign a related number. The Proclaim runs on Verizon Towers with the similar Precedent running on T-Mobile.

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

Question

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!

Question

.pdf files ???

Someone please for the life of me tell me how or which (I've tried most all of them) app to use or which phone setting to change so I can at least view .pdf files on my sd card. A .pdf is a very common file. My old Optimist Q had no problems at all. I was told this was an upgrade but if it is not configured to open a simple .pdf...well, that leaves a lot of room to doubt... also, can't even download the simple basic CNN news app on the Proclaim. Says it is "incompatable" but worked just fine on the Optimist Q.... Makes one wonder !!!

Question for you Zzuebe:

1) Have you rooted this device and running it on a custom rom?

If so, that might be why you are getting the error. I have the Proclaim and just installed Adobe Reader without any problems whatsoever.

If you have not rooted the phone and you are not running a custom rom, you may need to reset your phone. Backup what you can beforehand.

Go to Settings, Privacy and then tap Factory data reset. That seems like it might be the only way to restore your phone as something has messed up.

I tried all the free ones on Google play (even Adobe Reader) and no good... always get the same message "an error has occurred"... I don't think the phone can read .pdf's... Friend has the same problem !!! I don't think this is an upgrade to the Optimist Q (really a bit slower at times) but does have better coverage and "Flash Player" ... Oh well !!!

That would not be enough... the micro SD cards are very inexpensive, I installed 32GB myself... I believe 4GB would be enough for quite some time, but if you shoot pictures, or video, get the largest card you can afford.

I had the same problem with the LG Optimus, it drove me crazy!!! Always had low storage problems, I've not had that problem with this
Galaxy Proclaim so far, it's been very fast & it has a larger internal memory. The memory & the verzion network is why I got this phone
& so far it's made me very happy. I've only had it about 3 weeks, but
It's performed even better than I expected. Hope this helps you.
