No you want to use the S738C Galaxy Centura:
Check the boxes (bottom left corner) they tell you which network you will be on:
GSM-A > AT&T
CDMA-V > Verizon
CDMA-S > Sprint
The phone models have a hint in them too, like Samsung Galaxy Discover S730G < the “G” meaning GSM. If buying online don't expect the Straight Talk help line to explain which phone is which carrier, my experience they are clueless. Just do a little googling on user forums. Bottom line you can order online if it is not on your preferred carrier Walmart is fantastic about returns. Opened or not you can return within 15 days.

Unfortunately, it uses the UMTS:3 frequency which is AT&T. I bought this needing Verizon coverage and am having to send it back. The Samsung Proclaim is a CDMA phone, which means Verizon coverage. It costs the same here on walmart.com. I just ordered mine! Hope you find one that works for you!

The activation card is to activated the phone itself. To use it (talk text moblie) you have to buy a service card.

The activation card included with the phone is simply contains the serial number you will need to activate the phone and instructions on programming your new phone. You will still need to purchase a $45 or $60 green service pin card. I hope this helps. :)

answer 4
What is referred to as an "activation card" is an informational card that gives the instructions on how to activate the phone along with all the identifying numbers which correspond to the phone that are needed for activation.

You may be referring to a "service card" or Straight Talk "plan" that is what provides the actual service. That you have to pay for separately and is NOT included with the phone. You are required to purchase at or before activation, a $45 unlimited plan (or $60 International plan) or multiples.

(ST refurbished phones sold by Walmart do come with a free 30-day service plan, however. Brand new phones like this one do not.)

Question

Why does the battery charge not last 8 hours? This is second phone in a month.

I exchanged my first Galaxy for another after two weeks because the charge would not last 8 hours. Now this one is doing the same thing. I have all apps and everything turned off and even have the phone turned of-not on standby and the battery still drains within 8 hours.

As far as I've been told it's a common flaw in the phone. I had to send mine off for a replacement too. Basically they told me I lost the money I spent on it because there's nothing they can do except send me another one.

Give straight talk a call. Usually they can help you out with that kind of stuff. I did have some trouble sending pictures with this phone but I found that turning it on and off usually fixed the problem (not always but usually).

Unfortunately, no. For one, the phones that Straight Talk sells are required to use Straight Talk plans and you agree to do that when you purchase the phone.

Two, this particular phone is GSM and configured out-of-the box to use AT&T where Boost Mobile uses only CDMA devices as they use the Sprint network exclusively.

If you like the Boost Mobile plans, Debbie, and don't mind having a phone that is on the Sprint native network, you should buy a phone that Boost Mobile sells.
