brookeb, 01 Oct 2012DO NOT GET THIS PHONE!!!! I got mine on July 9th of this year... Had it less than 3 months. Tw... moretry the lg optimus zip. its very comparable only with a slide out keypad. it gets service on verizon according to straightalk. i would call them to double check for your area but sometimes doing research can come in handy and save you some hassle ;)
Dave, 25 Nov 2012I just ordered this phone, haven't received it yet. I guess I should've read these reviews fir... moreyes. you can return the phone to a local walmart store for a complete refund with your receipt (or the piece of paper that comes with the phone should suffice) or exchange if they have the phone there you want. if they don't have the phone you want then ask for a gift card and go order it online! ill be doing this today...should've known better than to switch from my good ole LG brand, it has lasted forever until the charging port finally gave out (not uncommon for cell phones in general). try the Lg optimus zip, which is extremely comparable to this phone ;)
Junk junk junk Video download is slow or doesn't work at all Have to reset it all the time
I love this phone! I've had it for a year and now I'm buying one for my husband b/c he wants one for his birthday next week :-)
I have had the phone for about 2 weeks now.It doesnt handle video/audio well at all.It is really unusable.Does anyone know if there is a fix for this? I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

kha, 02 Jan 2013I Got mine on thanksgiving of 2012.And on the 25 or 26 or december it "SOMEHOWE GOT STUCK... moreThat happened to mine, however before to get it off airplane mode I would hit mobile data to make the switch. so if that's what you're doing, try hitting airplane mode again and that should put it on mobile data. If you've already done that, sorry for the reiteration.
kha, 02 Jan 2013I Got mine on thanksgiving of 2012.And on the 25 or 26 or december it "SOMEHOWE GOT STUCK... moreyes i had it for 6 mos until it got on airplane mode then i went and bought a new one had it for a week sd card want reading and freezing then bought another one and had it for a wk screen kept flickering really bad. but straight talk will send you a free phone if there is no water damage but you have to call them and go step by step of what they want you to do which never works and c=make them replace your phone all of there phones have 1 yr warranty
After having this phone for less than a year I have had a whole list of problems. In short it sometimes makes a high pitched click/noise when I am trying to talk to people, sometimes who I am talking to says it sounds like I am talking to them from inside of a box, I'll be typing texts but the letters won't show up, and for over a day I could not get service on it even though I had a new card out on.
Straight talk provides terrible service and the employees are nearly impossible to understand which is why I am thankful I got a Walmart warranty on this thing. I am getting a refund from them and you can be sure I won't be buying another phone like this!
The only redeeming things about this is I like having eBay updates on the go...but even then if you are not careful you will get a warning call like I did from straight talk about using too much data. Stay away from the phone. It may work great at first but it will all go down hill from there.
I have went through 4 different proclaim phones from 3 different walmart. All of the phones had a loud squealing noise when talking on it. They would freeze when texting or ending calls. Loved it when I first got it. Luckily, I was able to handle all of the transactions at Walmart instead of waiting weeks to have another phone. Right now I am back to my basic reliable straighttalk phone. I wouldn't recommend this phone.
just got the phone... is nice but some apps i try to get say "phone is not compatable with this version" I need version 2.2 and up. not sure what that means or if i can do something about it like get some kind of update. If anyone has an answer would like to hear
willow, 12 Dec 2012I got this phone about 2 months ago. It was working pretty well up until yesterday (had a few ... moreYep, this phone pretty is pretty bad. Especially if your using straight talk. Samsung wouldn't provide customer service yet they are listed in the manual as the contact. Hmmm. The glass and plastic also get chipped just from having it in a backpack, within 2 months I had 5 deep cuts in the glass and plastic.
suz', 26 Jun 2012Does anyone know how to download the app for a GPS on this phone?Get GPS Essentials from Google play. It's free. Use Google Maps which is already on the phone also.
I am having the same problem. I bout this phone in Oct.,before Dec it lost all ability to connect to any type of network or wifi. Where there should be service bars,network type or wifi it was just a circle with a slash through it. It took ten days to get a replacement. When I got my new refurbished one it did the same thing three days later. Ive had the phone for less than three months and haven't been able to use it for a month.
I have this phone and there's 2 sensors on the front by the listening piece. What are these for? How do I activate usage of these? Is one a alert light for texts/calls?
JbYrD40, 23 Dec 2012on this phone, whats that little camera on the front of the phone. Light sensor, to turn off the screen when you put the phone against your face. It is not another camera.
