I bought this at Walmart for $150 a few weeks ago to replace the cheap-o flip phone I've had for years. If you're like me and are upgrading from a standard cell phone, I think you'll really love it. If you're switching from an iphone or Galaxy S, you'll definitely notice the lack of bells and whistles. Although, it might be worth loosing a few features to save money. I've heard some reviewers mention the phone has froze on them to the point they had to take out the battery. This has not happened to me and I use it quite a bit.

- 3G and wi-fi are fast and work great. I'm able to watch youtube videos and listen to music through Pandora on 3G with no problem. I haven't tried Netflix on 3G, but it worked well on wi-fi.

- Full access to the Android app market.

- Only $45 a month for unlimited everything. Through Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint that would cost you over $100

- Decent battery life. It will make it through the day with normal use. And by normal I mean an hour on the phone and an hour or two on the internet. If you only make calls it will last you 3-4 days.

- GPS worked fine the one time I used it. Although it did make the battery drain a lot quicker...which is normal.


- This phone uses Sprint's network and the reception is hit or miss. I sometimes have to walk outside to get a good signal depending on where I am. Check Sprint's coverage map to make sure it will work in your area.

- No flash support. It doesn't even worth with the flash app. Apparently there's not enough ram or something.

- Barcode scanner app doesn't work. It doesn't have the right type of camera.

Hope my review was helpful. If you're wanting an affordable smart phone that works well without having to fork out a hundred dollars a month to use it, look no further.

***EDIT 6/8/2013 This review was written when CDMA versions were sold (i.e. using Verizon towers instead of Sprint), if you are still looking for a Verizon prepay phone MAKE SURE IT SUPPORTS CDMA AND NOT GSM etc***

I've had Straight Talk for about five or six months now, and have had the Samsung Galaxy Precedent for that much time as well. From what I understand, ST phones go on a phone-by-phone basis of what kind of service will work for it. A majority of ST phones run Verizon, and the Samsung (as well as some other smart phones) runs off of Sprint. That's the first thing I'm addressing here: If you are located in an area where Sprint is used and supported, this phone should connect just fine. Otherwise, be careful.

I live in a rural city, and Straight Talk told me that my phone does not work in my area. That's basically to cover their butts, because if you check the Sprint coverage map this town is covered and I can attest to it. Not great signal like all the other Verizon users around here, but I haven't dropped a call yet.

Moving on to the actual phone itself: This has been my first smart phone, and by all accounts I am very impressed. It's a very "everyday" phone and it shows. It sure as heck won't run anything fancy like Dead Space (heck, sometimes Angry Birds will stutter a bit), but I can very quickly hop onto Facebook, forums I frequent, my email, Twitter, and even use an app called TuneIn Radio to listen to the radio here and there. You can have it run off of the 3G network or use it's Wifi capabilities, especially in my area 3G isn't super fast but I can still stream music from it.

I've been using my phone as much more than a phone.

.... The phone itself is great. Others will hopefully tell you more about the phone and all that it does. I'm not very techy. If it makes calls and texts, thats good with me. This phone does a whole lot more than make calls and texts, and I had a lot of fun getting to know the phone.
The bad thing, unfortunatly, is that in the area that I am in most of the time, there is no signal. I live and work in a rural area, and this phone evidently runs off of different towers than the other straight talk phones. The service on this phone is non-existent for much of the roads I travel. Service was in and out throughout the day inside the building that I work in. When I *was* able to make a call from inside the building, the person I was talking to had trouble hearing me. Some texts went through, some did not.
I'm pretty dissapointed, I really wanted this phone! But if it can't make a call the majority of the time, its just not going to work for me. So if you're in a rural area, think twice!
I will say, Straight talk would get 5 stars from me for switching my phone back to an older one when I called them to tell them this one wasn't going to work for me. They were freindly and efficient.

this phone is a great entry level phone for first time smartphone users like personally this phone does everything i far as coverage goes i live in south central connecticut and the coverage is pretty good for the most part.. I get three bars in my basement and my tmobile phone could not get service down there...for 45 dollars a month unlimifted everything is such a great value...texting is easy..keyboard is good although took me a while to get used to because my fingers are big.landscape mode for typing works much better for me not a big fan of swype typing although probably works well...i also love the voice to dial,text,and e-mail options on the phone it really comes in handy when your driving or multi tasking...battery life is about six hours of moderate use and if you use the gps get a car charger because it will drain the battery down in like an for the most part is pretty fast...its no galaxy s2,but overall solid phone and if sprint works in your area then i would say go for it its a real good bargain if your on a budget..
