This device will use Verizon 3G services.

Depending on how far you are from the tower you are connected to, the network traffic, and the like..the speed of the internet will vary.

I have no problem with speed where I live.

The phone will do 3g(cell towers) and also WiFi for locations that have a hotspot, or through your home wireless connection.

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.

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, it comes with a USB cable that plugs into a wall outlet adapter. I purchased a generic car charging port for it... it's a car charger with nothing but a USB port (no cable or connector) and I just plug the phones USB cable into that. Walmart and a lot of other stores sell these for around $10

This phone is on Verizon towers!

If you need to decipher what network and service any Straight Talk phone uses, you will need to look to the lower left corner of the box. You will see codes like below.

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