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.

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 !!!

No problems with memory. Puts new programs on external storage, which is up to 32gb. Also, processor is 1gb which is awesome.

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.

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 phone is wifi enabled but has conflicts if both wifi and 3g is enabled at the same time. This does not allow hotspot nor tethering and is restricted to 100MB a day and 2GB a month as per the fine print.

No, but some apps require internet which you can turn on your unlimited data for that.

If you plan to do a lot of video and audio streaming then you would need WiFi access.

WiFi is just a way to help keep your data usage down when you are at home, out and about and able to connect to hotspots, and the like.

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.

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
