Question

does this run on the att network?

answer 1
Each Straight Talk/Tracfone phone is built for certain type carriers. Some of the Android phones are on Sprint (CDMA) while a few are Verizon (CDMA), others have a SIM card causing them to be ATT or T-Mobile depending on the area they are sold in.

On non-Android phones, normally CDMA on the box front lower area, means Verizon, and GSM means ATT, but sometimes T-Mobile, and it depends on the sim card that is shipped in the phone - usually ATT unless you are in a mostly T-Mobile area.

I just talked to my Walmart in Birmingham, AL, and the G S II says GSM, which usually means ATT here, and I have seen others post theirs is ATT in Florida.

Short answer - surely ATT, especially if ATT is good in your area.

Tracfone has always gotten the best deal with ATT, by the way, so they are preferred. Just buy the phone, and try it - you have 14 days to return it for a refund, except you have to pay for a $45 plus tax card, and if you like it, THEN and only THEN, call Straight Talk, and get your number transferred.

Not directly or specifically...Straight Talk is ONLY on TracFone...which piggy backs off all networks. We actually get better reception on our TracFone/Straight Talk phones than many of our fellow RVr's at campgrounds. I was leary of Straight Talk until I realized it is TracFone.

If you want another warranty on this phone, sign into your straight talk acct. Go to protect you phone. Go down to the bottom of the page and put in you cell phone number and choose a plan. The 39.99 is the best plan but you have to purchase it in 30 days when your phone was activated. If after thirty days you will have to purchase the 19.99 plan. That plan will go into effect at the end of the mfg warranty. The 39.99 is for a year and come out to 3.33 a month. Cheap for an expensive phone.

Question

Galary Sii only workes with straight talk - what is excessive usage???

Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SII Prepaid Cell Phone:

Only works with Straight Talk But
you violated section 6 and 7 of the terms of service - which basically says they have the right to cut your Internet speed (throttle), or terminate your service if your data usage is 'excessive'.
What is excessive usage???? (time or amount?)

answer 1
excessive is over either 2 gb or 2.5 gb. the total price for prepaid regardless of company is very similar since that is all they budget for when they purchase usage rights. I am waiting around for one of them to set a higher limit and look into their phones. 2.5 isn't alot, cell carriers need to reconsider just how much data a phone can use simply updating apps. that said straight talk may win my business based on coverage anyway, and these gs2 units are pretty little things.

Question

How well does the internet work on the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy SII?

By internet I mean 3g/HSPDA/whatever you want to call it. The only reason I want to update to a "smarter" phone is so I can connect to the internet when I'm away from available wifi. So, how well does the internet work without being connect to wifi?

I've had the SII for a couple of months now and haven't had any problems with the internet -- kicking myself because I didn't upgrade sooner.

As far as the internet away from wifi, it all depends on the strength of the signal and the carrier. When the signal is strong, the speed is very good. When the signal is weak, not so much.

Question

I'm in the Cairo, Ga area and our phones "must" bounce off of Verizon towers to work, so my question is, does this phone use Verizon towers?

We are outside the city limits as well, and I would really like to purchase this phone for my daughter but need to know if it's going to work for her before I spend this kind of money.....also, is she going to exceed data usage and be subject to throttling on her internet use? I have a friend who has one but she could only use it at my home when it was "roaming" and I want to make sure my daughter will get good use of it at our home. Thanks for your answers in advance.
