    Maybe the Black will be the 2nd chance I give ST or maybe I'll try Boost with the same phone, the Marquee.

    Thoughts?

    Straight Talk now has the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim available via their website, for $179.99 it is using Verizon's 3g network you might want to look into it. just a suggestion...

    Verizon is Sprint correct?

    From what ive seen the Black would be a slightly better choice then the Proclaim... Any insight DH?

    The new ST phone is a Samsung Proclaim and it uses Verizon. ST also now sells sims that work on GSM phones.

      I LOVE TO ARGUE
    Lol... from a hardware perspective the Black is a MUCH better choice than the Proclaim. The Black is a 1ghz, 512mb ram with 2gb of storage internal.... 1gb for /system 1gb for user data. Expandable sd-card slot up to 32gb. The screen on the black is 4in and 16m color lcd. lol, comparing the black to the proclaim is like comparing apples to oranges. . .

    Lets see, on a straight software side, the blacks got cm7, cm9, ics 4.0, gb, a whole host of custom roms and developers and CWM.

    The Proclaim has . . .

    Now the issue with the black is this... it has very few physical hardware keys. Making booting into recovery on it a lot of trial and error and some luck. This is a big turn off. It's operating on the Sprint network with we'll say ON NATIONAL AVERAGE POORER SPEEDS THAN THEIR COMPETITORS. It's also overpriced compared to the same phone on competitors networks. I was expecting to see the black around 269.99 - 289.99 not 329.99.

    I could be wrong (and I often am) but from what I understand, Sprint used to be Verizon. Anyways... I've never had any trouble with coverage in Verizon. I've had 'dumb' phones on Sprint, Verizon and AT&T and I've akways gotten much better coverage on VZ with AT&T second (still dropped calls like crazy even with full signal) and Sprint third. Whe best phone I had, befire Android that is, was my Moto Razr V3 Black even if it was on AT&T but I got it for $25 almost new so I couldn't complain

    I don't understand why ST sells different phones depending on your location

    I'm pretty sure it has to do with the availabilty of service in your area. I asked this question at my walmart and the guy said bc there is no 3g in crestview... he was full of it bc I went to the next town and bought the optimus q brought it home and it worked fine. When I go to the st website and enter my area code it doesn't even show the optimus q so I don't know about every phone and location but mine works fine in an area it wasn't sold.

    I have the LG optimus Showtime on st. I love it. I got it from the website for 286.00. Most I've ever spent on one but not sorry for the decision at all!!!
