Typical for a smartphone. If you can't get a day then buy extended battery. Look up illusion on Samsung website.

Make sure you are turning off all apps when they are not in use. This will run your battery down quickly. Also if you keep your phone in a place that it must search for signal it will run the battery down. For instance if it is in a purse all day that could be dampening the signal. I can easily go 2 days without charging my phone.

Does The Samsung Illusion Extended Battery Fit This Phone?

Does the 2400mah battery fit perfectly in the Samsung Proclaim? I would like to know because I just ordered the proclaim and need a long battery life. Is the battery a tight fit? Also, does the extended battery cover for the Samsung Illusion fit the Samsung Proclaim? Any answers would be appreciated.

1. The 18 month extended warranty program is through a company called NEW. You have to go through them for any warranty issues. There are instructions in the pamphlet that you must follow for the warranty to be affective. You must keep your receipt and be prepared to ship off your phone for repairs. Do not try to replace the phone through Wal-Mart because they are not responsible for the enforcement of the extended warranty. They only act as agents of the NEW company (which is under the Asurion umbrella) and sell their product.

2. Wal-Marts return policy for prepaid phones is 15 days. This policy was 30 days but changed around January of 2011. There are signs that are above electronics that state the 15 day return policy for prepaid cellphones. Also, in customer service, and in connection center. Now I am aware that some stores choose to not follow the correct policy for whatever reason, but I am here to tell you its 15 days. With a receipt by the way. If you get lucky at one store and get away with returning a product within 30 days just understand that not every store is aware or follows the companies policy. It is very confusing and I for one hope that people will get on the same page about the return policy. Anyways, I hope this helps.

You have 30 days from date of purchase to buy the 18 month protection plan. I asked at Walmart Wireless store. AND I read it in the protection plan description. Here it is, I will copy & paste:
"If you have the original Walmart product receipt, you can buy this Protection Plan to cover any eligible product up to 30 days after you've bought it."

No.

That is called hot spot use/tethering.

Straight Talk terms of service strictly forbids hot spot and tethering use. If they catch you during monitoring, they can shut your account off without notice and without refund. There is also the possibility that your name/address/email and the like will be banned from using Straight Talk in the future.

If anyone tells you different, they are outright lying to you.

Yes, you can. The straight talk website walks you through the process step by step- it's pretty simple. And if you forget to refill on time (I have forgotten twice) they don't immediately give your number away. You have a month to refill before you lose it.

Yes you can. Just make sure your number is active and it can be ported over.

You will also need your account number and pin.

Activate this phone on the web with "transfer number from another company."

The porting process is pretty simple. You will usually have a full functioning phone with an hour or two.

Depends on your phone. If it takes a sim card then you can buy and use a Straight Talk Sim card. Have you completed your 2 year committment with Verizon Wireless? Typically that is how people get their phones so cheap - it is financed through your service fees.

Unfortunately Straight Talk cannot be used on CDMA phones from the Verizon network. However, if you had either an unlocked GSM phone, or an AT&T or T-Mobile branded phone which uses a SIM card, Straight Talk sells SIM cards for $14.99 which can be used in those phones on their network.

You can buy a straight talk SIM card - I think for around $15 to replace the Verizon SIM card in the back of your phone. This allows you to use your current phone. Be sure to buy the correct SIM card for your phone. Go to straighttalk.com for more info. Hope this helps.

Are your phones GSM phones with a SIM Card? Verizon has been moving towards this as well as keeping their CDMA phones as well.

If they do have SIM cards and also unlocked, you can then buy Straight Talk SIM Cards to put in your current phones and use the Straight Talk plans.

If the phones are CDMA, then you will need to purchase Straight Talk phones I do believe to use their plans.
