sprint towers?

the young man at our walmart in Paris TX told me all Straight Talk Android phones were using Sprint towers, but when I read these reviews it says this phone uses AT&T... is this determined by your location?

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.

When you face this issue, troubleshoot the device by turning off your phone,Press and hold “Vol+”, “Menu”, and “Power” key until the phone goes to recovery mode.Use “Vol+” and “Vol-“ to move the cursor up and down.Move cursor to “wipe data/factory reset”, press “Back” key to select it.Now move cursor down to “Yes – delete all user data” and press “Back” to select it.The data will be erased.The cursor will be on “reboot system now” at the end, so just press “Back” key to reboot the phone normally.Note: All user data will be completely cleared; the phone will be in a factory reset status.
