Question

Does the phone have wi-fi calling?

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 1 year, 2 months ago

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.

I checked those apps ... they all require the caller and the callee to have the specific app installed. It doesn't appear that any of the apps in Play Store offer true wifi calling to anyone .... at least I could not find one.

You have to forward text messages via email to another email. I'm pretty sure you touch the message until it vibrates a tiny bit and it should show options to forward.

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.

No. Tethering is NOT allowed by Straight Talk and is specifically addressed in their Service Agreement which can be found at www.straighttalk.com (Terms and Conditions link)

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.

As long as you don't go crazy with your use. I've read online that if you are extremely excessive with your data use that StraightTalk will disconnect you. That hasn't happened to me personally, but I did read it online.

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!

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.
