To help everyone out a bit... I just received a list of which phones run off of which service towers (these came from Straight Talk themselves). The only issue is that this phone is not on the list, however many have already answered that it runs off of AT&T. Hopefully this helps! :)

Here are the list of phones that will work with Verizon that are CDMA phones are LG Optimus Fuel, iPhone 4s 8GB, Samsung Galaxy S3, Iphone 5, HUAWEI Ascend Y, Huawei Ascend Plus, Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, Samsung Galaxy Centura, LG Optimus Zip, LG Optimus Dynamic, LG Optimus Dynamic II, LG 305C, Samsung R375C, Samsung S336C, LG 236C, Samsung S380C, Huawei H210C, ZTE Valet and ZTE Majesty.

This is for AT&T . List of phone that will work with AT&T are Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4.2 android version, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, ALCATEL onetouch Sonic LTE, ZTE Unico LTE, ZTE Solar, ZTE Illustra, Huawei W1, Huawei Inspira, LG Optimus Extreme, LG Optimus Logic, BIG BUTTON Flip - Alcatel A392G, Samsung T404G and Motorola EX431G

List of phones that will work with TMobile are Huawei Inspira, ZTE Whirl, ZTE Midnight, ZTE Unico LTE, Samsung Galaxy S4 with 4.3 android version, BIG BUTTON Flip - Alcatel A392G, Samsung T404G, Motorola EX431G, Huawei Inspira and Huawei W1.

Yes and no. It is Straight Talk this particular model use the AT&T towers. Straight Talks can use AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile:
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.

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. :)

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.)

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!

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.

I just took mine into the store and they told me to buy another phone because they tried a few tricks but they don't work. It's especially frustrating to me because all of their ads say to bring your devices and they will all work on Straight Talk but Straight Talk devices don't work on Straight Talk. There are so many issues with these phones its impossible to know what will work and what won't.

I've tried reading some forums and not had any luck getting mine to work.

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.
