Dear Anonymous,

No, you can not make your internal processor bigger.

On this phone it is 600MHz

Any chance by mistake that you are talking about memory.....
yes you can. With a bigger/larger Gb MicroSC card. This phone will accommodate up to 32Gb.

Most of the Straight Talk Android phones use Sprint towers, but this one uses AT&T towers. The Galaxy Proclaim uses Verizon towers.

No, this phone always uses AT&T towers, no matter where you are. The guy at your local Walmart was misinformed.
