No plan or minutes come with the phone, and it also requires a phone card that includes data. I purchased a 6 month card for about $275 (tax included) and that worked out to be slightly more then $45/mo

No it is not. What is included is the activation card, which is simply a red card with the phone serial number.

Service cards are sold separately.

Details on the service plan would be best answered by a Wal-Mart sales associate or a sales or support person who works directly with the StraightTalk service. Samsung makes the phones, but we don't control the service costs or details.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung phones.

Staight talk uses various networks. They use sprint, t-mobile, verizon. it all depends on the phone u purchase. The samsung galaxy proclaim uses verizon network. Just call straight talk with the name and model of the phone of ur choice. Based on the phone and where u live, they will tell you which network the phone uses.

StraightTalk uses different carriers. When you look at the box, the lower left corner has a code. (CDMA-V) or (CDMA-S) the "V" is for Verizon, the "S" is for Sprint...

Straight Talk actually uses all the major carriers. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. If you look on the boxes, you will see codes like below. That shows network and carrier.

CDMA-V = Verizon
CMDA-S = Sprint
GSM-A = At&t
GSM-T = T-Mobile

However, this Samsung Galalxy Proclaim uses Verizon.

I am not sure about Cricket and what carriers they use. I would ask you to look at their website for more information.

Net10 is another spinoff of American Movil which is the parent company of Tracfone, Net10, and Straight Talk.

You can go to just about about any store that carries cell phone chargers. The plug ends are standardized for androids.

What you will need to purchase, if you do not return it for another phone since it was not included, would be a microUSB a/c plug.

More than likely these models will not have the separate USB cable that you find inside the packaging for transferring of files from your computer.

There are about 10 different restaurants that you may choose from..Wendy's, Burger King, Olive Garden, etc. In the box there is a card with all the participating restaurants that you can select. Go to gift card site and fill out info and then they will send you a gift certificate.

It can be used at places such as Panera Bread, Subway, and other restaurants.

You go to the website on the card in the packaging. enter the claim code and then choose your card. It will then be processed and sent to you in 6-8 weeks.

I am sorry that I cannot give you more of the restaurants. I claimed my card the day I got my phone and those were the only two I remembered.

SWYPE is a style of keyboard where you slide your finger across the keyboard, stopping on the letters or characters you want to type. It is a nice idea, but I found it too difficult to use.

The Android market allows you to download other keyboard styles, and many of them are free.

It is a an application option to the tap keyboard offered by Samsung. Basically you do your typing by swyping your fingers across the keyboard and stopping on the letters you want. I think the phone default is set up for Swype, but I chose to switch back to the regular Samsung keyboard.

The phone does not need wifi, however, I use wifi whenever possible. The phone uses 3g, and I can access most everything I need to through that, BUT I have heard of others getting their data throttled once they stated downloading movies from Netflix.

answer 2
The Straight Talk service on this phone is through Verizon. Since it is America's largest, most reliable network, the mobile data will more than likely be 3G.

If you have access to using WiFi hotspots or your home, I do recommend that since unlimited with Straight Talk is not really unlimited.

Estimates have been out for awhile now that the limits are around 100mb per day/2GB per month. Rumors are abound that ST will either throttle and/or terminate for your account for repeated offenses.

As for tethering or using this device as a mobile hotspot, ST has it in their terms of service that it is not allowed. What also is not allowed is streaming of music/video from this phone as well.

You are basically limited to what the phone can do natively, and through the use of apps from Google Play that do not infringe on Straight Talk's terms of service.

If your service provider and plan support cellular internet, the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim will be able to access the internet through your carrier as well as through a WiFi connection.

The Samsung Galaxy Proclaim should offer the ability to send and receive picture messages since it uses the Android OS. However, availability of this feature is dependent on your carrier and their policies. Please contact your carrier for more information on this and any other network features.

Question

Two Item Numbers from Walmart

Hello,
I am going to be switching to Straight Talk after 22 years with GTE/Alltel/Verizon.
I looked in to Straight Talk and decided to purchase the Galaxy Proclaim phone from Walmart.com.
I browsed through all of the prepaid phone on the Walmart.com site and chose this phone. I found out a few hours later that the same phone is offered with a $10 Lunch On Us gift card. Surprisingly, the Lunch On Us gift card with Phone did not come up on the filtering pages.
As my order cannot be cancelled and replaced without me refusing the phone, Minutes package and the Protection Warranty on the phone, is there any way to obtain the $10 Lunch On Us Gift Card separately? The phone was one of the most expensive on the Walmart.com site ($179.98) ; the Gift Card would be a nice offer to receive.
I look forward to your reply.
Thank you.

Sadly, there is not a way to get the card just by itself. It a code verification card to a 3rd party website where you choose the $10 Gift Card.

The only thing that I could tell you to do is return the phone, warranty, and service card to your local Walmart and buy the one you wanted with the refund you will receive. Just ask for merchandise credit so you get a Walmart Gift Card. Much easier than having your card refunded.

You may be able to call customer service and see if they can switch out the phone before it is shipped though too.

Let us know what happens.
