The other two reviews are unfair because they cite being on AT&T towers versus the wanted Verizon towers. If you want to be on Straight Talk you need to do a little research. 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. I specifically bought this phone because I frequently travel to an area where the only tower is AT&T. I refuse to pay $500 for a phone. This one does everything I need maps, texting, internet, and oh yeah phone calls. Great phone for the price. It replaces my Galaxy Proclaim that was on Verizon. This phone has the newer 4.0.3 Android and has twice the internal memory 2 GB user usable. Do yourself a favor if you like to store stuff on your phone music, pics videos, etc buy a micro SD card.

I bought the phone believing that it would only use Verizon towers. Being that I have lived and worked in the same area that I have used Verizon for the past 11 years, I have to say that there is NO way this was using Verizon. I have had it for two days. If it wants to call out, it will. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Some times people can call me,most of the time they can't. I never get more than 1 bar of the 3G network. Sometimes I get an E over the bars. To make matters worse, I get an error message that says sim not provisioned mm2. I never could get online, not even using my WI Fi. The original switch to Straight Talk involved an LG Optimus, reconditioned. I don't care for the phone's feel, speed or button placement, but it sure does make calls when I tell it to, receives calls and messages and surfs the web like no one else's business! I am returning this Discover and have ordered a Proclaim. The reviews for Proclaim say it pings Verizon towers only. I'll let you know how that works out. If not, strike three, I'll deal with the Optimus!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

This was my first smart phone purchase...so needless to say I researched and compared many types. I knew I wanted a descent phone but did not have any desire to pay out the nose for just a phone. I was a little hesitant when I made my initial purchase....but my fears were quickly relieved when I received my phone and had it activated. I will say its not the quickest phone, but I sorta expected that. If you want higher speed processing and more ease of use, then go with a higher grade phone. But again....for the money and what I needed a phone for, it was a good buy and I would recommend it to anyone.

Do not purchase this phone! I repeat DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PHONE! I have had this phone for 7 months and it is the biggest disappointment. I'm constantly having to turn it off and take it apart to take the battery out to reset everything just so it will work. I did a total factory reset after 5 months because it could take up to 15 minutes to make a phone call. Today it decided to be on silent mode, all setting were set for it to ring with volume turned up. When I would make a phone call the other party couldn't hear me, but if they called me then they could hear me. What is up with that? Oh and a couple weeks ago it decided to not send or receive picture texts. I am soooo fed up with this phone and hate that after only 7 months I'm going to have to buy a new phone because this one is such a disappointment!!!

As a long time Straight Talk customer, I have used several phones. The Samsung Galaxy is by far the worst. Does not perform as claimed. With more than one function on, the battery life is 2 ½ - 3 hours at best. With no functions on, battery life is 8 – 10 hours. It takes pictures but will not send or receive any. Downloads disappear. The touch screen response is erratic at best. User directions have to be downloaded and were clearly written by someone with a poor command of English. For me, it is a complete waste of money. I wish I had my reliable flip phone back; I'll gladly forego the so-called great options of the Galaxy for the dependability of the old flip phone! And no, this is not the first "smart" phone I've used, but it might be the last.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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. :)

  • A. 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.)

  • A. 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!
