If you have Verizon in your area, this phone will work.

Cost, without tax, in my local store is $250.00. This does seem to be the price most everywhere for this phone.

When you are looking for cases, screen protectors...you will not find much under Galaxy Showcase S. Search for the Galaxy Fascinate instead. This phone is the exact same thing, only renamed for use on Straight Talk. There is even an Otterbox for this phone, which is one of the best cases around for smartphones.

as long Verizon covers your area, then yeah it should. And it costs $266 w/tax included. Beware though, this phone is known as the Samsung Showcase in some areas, so if you try to locate it, ask for the Showcase.

No, all Android powered phones have to have at least a $45 dollar card. I think mostly because of the internet the phones use.

No, all Androids require the $45 card. The $30 card simply doesn't have enough data with it to run smartphones.

Question

Does anyone in the Elizabeth City, NC area have one of these phones and does it work good in this area?

I would love to have this phone, but the area where you put your zip code to see if the phone works in that zip is saying that it doesn't work in the Elizabeth City, NC area. And yet, the local WalMart is selling this phone. Someone help please.. :( I just want to know if the phone does or doesn't work in the Elizabeth City, NC area. Thanks :D

If Verizon service works in your zip code than the phone would work cause it runs in verizon towers. Hope that helps you out.

Since this device uses Verizon for service, and by checking on the Straight Talk website with 2 other phones that are on Verizon, this will work.

The other 2 phones on Verizon are the LG Optimus Zip and the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim. Both of these are available in all three zipcodes for Elizabeth City, NC.

The Straight Talk website has the other two Verizon Androids, Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and the LG Optimus Zip, as both being able to be bought and used in your area.

By that alone, this phone will work in the 50036 zipcode. It is covered by Verizon also.

My guess is that this phone is sold in stores only, so it is not showing on the website.

You cannot hot spot us a Straight Talk phone. Their terms of service forbids this practice. If they catch you, they can terminate your account.

If Verizon service works in your zip code than the phone would work cause it runs off of verizon towers.

It should.

To double check, you can go to the Verizon Wireless site and pull up the service map. Then click the radio button for prepaid, refresh the map, and locate your general area.

The two zip codes you listed have the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim, and the LG Optimus Zip as both being available for purchase in your area, so this Galaxy S should work also as all three use Verizon for service.

This phone is sold in stores only. Not available to purchase on the Straight Talk or Walmart websites. This will not show on the Straight Talk website until it is for sale from the web.
