That's a good question. I can tell you that if you order the phone here at Walmart.com, you can have it shipped to the store for free, which is what I did. I'm not sure if they actually will take the time to help you order the phone or not, but they do have those little computer displays back in electronics so perhaps an associate can help you although I would think you would still have to have an account with Walmart.com to place the order. Don't quote me on this though. As far as activating the phone at the store, I wasn't sure about this so I called one of my local Walmart's and the associate in electronics that I spoke to told me that there is a person there that helps with setting up the cell phones. Not just the contract phones but the prepaid phones as well. The best time to get assistance with them is from 8am to 5pm. Wow, I didn't know this myself! I thought they only assisted with setting up contract phones. If the associate I spoke to is correct, then yes you can get help setting up your Straight Talk phone at the store.

Question

Where can the promotional Gift Card be used at?

Where can the Lunch On Us gift card be used? Is it a standard Walmart gift card that can be used in stores and online, an online-only Walmart card, StraightTalk.com gift card, or is it a pre-paid Visa/Mastercard that can be used anywhere? Thanks!

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.

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.

No, this phone does not have a SIM card. It runs on the Verizon network. The androids that run on Sprint do not take SIM cards either so you have to be careful if you don't want a Sprint network phone. I only know of 2 that run on Verizon and they are the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and the LG Optimus Zip. Hope this helps.

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.
