It says "Black Friday Only". It is $29 IN STORE ONLY on November 28th from 8pm to 9pm and is guaranteed in stock (meaning, if it runs out of stock during that hour that they will have it shipped to store for you and you will still get it at that price).

Question

Is this Samsung Galaxy Centura S738C listed for $29.00 the same as one listed for $99.99?

The phone listed for $29.00 is model no. STSAS738CPWPAN and in the Specifications section says the service carrier is Verizon. The phone listed for $99.99 show it's model no. as S378C and service carrier is Straight Talk. I just want to make sure this is the same phone, and that it is not a refurbished one. Does anyone know if the different model #'s mean anything? Thank you for your help. Also shipping weight is different 0.8 for $29.00 and 1.5 for the $99.99. The product in inches for the $29.00 6.0 x 1.75 x 9.2 and for the $99.99 it is 4.44 x 2.4 x 0.45.......confused!!

Hi Kel. It is confusing as they have listed both. Many in my family have this model of phone. a few at the $99 price and few at the $29 price from this week. This phone was sold in the stores Thanksgiving night for a 2 hour deal for $29. With Cyber Monday (looks like week now) it is $29. We have seen no difference whatsoever to make us believe it is a different phone. As far as the networks. There is no Straight talk network. All of these phones are made by the same company that makes the Trac fone. Straight Talk can offer the cheap service because it does not own any towers. Different phones operate on different networks. An example on this one on the front of the box in the lower left corner I believe it says CDMA-V. CDMA is the type of network and V is for Verizon towers it uses. It does not use a SIM card. I use an LG-L40G. Mine said GSM-A. GSM is the network and it uses AT&T towers. GSM phones do use a SIM card. Best of luck. Verizon does not suit my personal needs anymore. If it does yours this is an AWESOME deal. Do not let this get away. This phone is worth way more than $29

I called Corperate and they told me that theyre not really sure what the difference is but they did tell me that it might be that one is a smartphone and one is not (which doesnt really help considering that they seem alike.) I guess the best way to find out is to wait until it comes in and see whats in the box. There is a shred of light however they told me that if its not what Im looking for then all I would need to do is just take it to my local walmart store and they would refund me the money as long as I had proof of purchase...so I guess its just a waiting game. Good Luck to all who purchase this phone!

Kel, you've done your research!

I've been wondering about this for a few days now wondering if there is some type of misprint or if they will take this page down because it is a mistake.

I hadn't done as much nitpicking as you have so I kept thinking that they are the exact same phone but now that you've brought to light that there are some subtle differences, I'm not so sure. I answered a few inquiries below that this is the exact same phone being sold for $99.88 as the general model numbers are actually the same and they seem to have the exact same features. I'm now leaning toward this page being a mistake.

One of the reasons I am thinking it's a mistake because Walmart has the phone advertised in their Sunday ad in the area I'm in as "IN STORE ONLY ...Valid Dec 1 - Dec 7, $99.88"

This leads me to ask "why would they be selling the exact same phone online for $29 then?"

Let's see if anybody in authority answers ...lol

No, Tethering from a Straight Talk Phone is not allowed. Tethering is against Straight Talks Terms and Conditions!!!! Yes you can find an app to tether but you run the risk of Straight Talk shutting your data service off!!! No wants that to happen. Please Read the terms and conditions about excessive data usage limits!

Yes, it uses the Verizon NATIVE network. Caution: if you are currently with Verizon contracted service, you will have some roaming privileges but with a Straight Talk phone using Verizon, it is only NATIVE coverage and the phone will not roam ...NATIVE = Verizon owned-towers only.

Yes, you can "port" your current phone number at the time you activate service with Straight Talk. Be sure not to cancel your current service as it has to be active in order to transfer your number.

You should be able to make the switch online. Or you can also call a Straight Talk rep and they will switch your phone number and plan for you.

If you are not already on one of the Unlimited Plans, you will have to start/initiate a new $45 Unlimited plan as this phone requires one of the Unlimited Plans ($60 International Unlimited will also be acceptable). If you are on the $30 Plan, you will lose any remaining minutes. If you are already on one of the Unlimited Plans, you can continue using it with this new phone and renew it as you usually do.
