Having had a Gmail account for a decade now, this is just another great usage for all the Google fans, sync your emails, float to wifi hotspots, use your own wireless, USB to your laptop or computer, 3G, works via app w/ my Sony Google TV ;) Apps to make your head spin and battery discard...grrr.. but fun. GPS, navigate, maps, locations. Almost endless possibility w/ caveat on Adobe Flash. Pros: All the stuff written on the box. 2 Gig SD in Box (just an appetizer) Swype: create words by drawing through OSK (on screen keyboard) Voice Dictation: Search/messaging/email; just say it and DICTATION is magically preformed for you. Huge plus if you have awkward thumbs or big fingers in general. Big Cons: You have to purchase the unlimited 45/30 refill, bummer since you can't stream from free Android compatible providers like Crackle. For those wishing to make use of unlimited data from a Google Android app like "Crackle" or use "Google Earth", or use "QR Droid": you'll be stumped and hindered as the powers that be have limited the hardware/software, or by some contract have not made a Flash player installable. If your phone is USB'ed to your computer and you go to the Android Market Place, a compatibility warning like the one below for Adobe Flash 11, Google Earth, and QR Droid. "This app is incompatible with your Mid-Tex Cellular Samsung SCH-M828C." Be Smart and research your home address for nearby Cell towers! Since this phone is a Sprint Network Phone, you can use the Antenna Search web page to locate the towers in your area. There exist also Cell Booster PCS/4G that can really pull a marginal signal and strengthen it. Google "Solid Signal" for a Cell Booster, and "Antenna Search" for a Map view of the towers/specs in a 4 mile radius of your entered address search. Excellent tools for a safe purchase of an excellent phone; no matter your choice. I've owned the phone 1 day, but purchased w/ confidence.

I got the Galaxy Precedent when Wal-Mart was selling them for $129.99 + tax. It was the highest end phone from Samsung that they had, and I was looking for an android phone to replace my 'dumb' phone. This phone does indeed run on Sprint Network in my area. This was the dumbest, most ridiculous, insane thing I had ever done. Reception in my area is horrible. Most of the times I have 1-2 bars, and if I get a call while in the house, I have to go outside just to answer it because I usually have no signal (an X over the reception bars) at all or 0 bars in the house. This also runs on Android 2.2.2, which it seems most developers are starting to require at least Android 2.3 for their apps these days. I've been told that Wal-Mart is starting to discontinue this phone because of the horrible reception issues they have, and are getting these phones returned in droves. Straight Talk is a very buy at your own Risk kind of venture anyway, but at least Wal-Mart has a limited time return policy.

I purchased this phone maybe a month ago. It looks really nice and at first the set up looks so great. And it was all $120 for an ANDROID phone, wow! But after getting used to this thing, you very quickly start to hate it. If you've ever had a super nice Android phone from HTC or Motorola, you're gonna hate your life if you downgrade to this thing. It lags very badly, sometimes taking up to 10 seconds to perform the command. I've never had a phone freeze up as much as this phone does. It just will not run half of the apps that I've used on other phones, for example, I have to use the old version of Facebook for it to even work properly, it won't even run the Capital One banking app without shutting down the operation. CURRENTLY my main problem is that the phone will not send text messages. It's getting network signal because it's downloading application updates, but just will not send text messages. I'm seriously about to purchase a new phone because this one is just so awful.

I have to agree with a few others here that the phone itself is great. And if it was with a different carrier, I would still have it. But Sprint's coverage in my area is the pits, so I had to take it back to Walmart. If you're looking for an entry level Android based phone, I would highly recommend this one. It was very easy for me to pick up and figure out. I fell in love with it in the short time I had it. So if the Sprint prepaid network works in your area, and you're looking for a great smartphone, look at this one for sure. Oh, and do your research on Sprint's coverage. The Straight Talk map is too small to see, and Sprint's coverage maps have quite a few inaccuracies. And one more thing, ask the local Walmart sales person if they activate many Sprint phones in their store. If they say no because of poor coverage, don't buy the phone. If it doesn't work there, chances are in won't work well in your area. Now if Straight Talk would just offer this phone on their Verizon system, I'd buy two tomorrow.

  • A. From the FCC.gov site: Under the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) “local number portability” (LNP) rules, so long as you remain in the same geographic area, you can switch telephone service providers, including interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, and keep your existing phone number. You will need to imitated this when you purchase your phone and he work is preformed in the background amongst the telco company.. I ported a cell over to an existing Landline, so cell to cell is doable, as long as it meets the guidelines from the FCC.
