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

Why does the description of this phone state that it

will ONLY work with the Straight Talk $45/30-Day Unlimited Service Plan or the $60/30-Day Unlimited International Service Plan. I wanted to get the 180 day unlimited card and it sounds like it won't work with this phone. Very Confusing - since people are saying the 180 day card will work !!

I have this phone and I just bought the 180 card and loaded it and it works. It has been working for over a month now. The card has nothing to do with the phone, but is how you pay your bill so that Straight Talk will keep your phone on.

Lorayne, the 90-, 180-, and 365-day Plans are all options of the $45 Plan. You will be able to use it on this phone.

Think of the 180-day Plan as six (6) $45 plans sold in one bundle for a discount. The 90-day Plan is three (3) $45 plans sold in a bundle for a discount.

You don't have to hesitate or worry about purchasing a 180-day Plan for this phone. It will work and you also save a bit by buying the $45 Plan when you purchase it three, six, or twelve months at a time.

You can keep your existing number and move it to straightalk. Typically you have to get your existing carrier to release the number, or straightalk can do it for you as part of the activation of your phone process. This it typically called "porting" your phone number over.

The easiest way to do it is to go on-line @ straighttalk.com and set it up there. I believe you can also do it through the 1-800 number on the back of any service card. I do this sometimes to re-new monthly service and that only takes about 3 minutes. It prompts you for everything for that part of it. I am sure it does the same thing for initial set up. Good luck!

No. Wrong model number. There is another Centura with a different model number that runs off of AT&T towers rather than Verizon. That is the one the is supposed to have the radio.

Find the "PlayStore" button. Click on it, find the magnifying glass at the top (search) and search for "I Heart radio". It is a free app, and after you download it and it is installed, press the "open" button. You can listen to FM stations from all around the country by searching for a particular city, topic (rap, rock, Christmas, etc.) or station ID (WXYZ e.g.) If you cant find the PlayStore button, just google I Heart Radio, and look for a downloadable app. Hope this helps.

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!
