It's official! Straight Talk has acknowledged the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Precedent Android phone with a page on the Straight Talk site announcing it with a form where you can check if it will be available in your location and register to be notified when it is. There's also a big 360% rotatable image of the phon e(screen grab above) .
While StraightTalk doesn't come right out and say it the new page gives us some clear evidence that the Precedent will be running on the Sprint Network. There are two clues:
1) The phone's model number is M828C. StraightTalk phones with numbers ending in C have always been CDMA models.
2) StraightTalk's CDMA phones have all been homed on the Verizon network. However if you enter the zip code 59801 on the Straight Talk Precedent site it tell you the phone is not available. 59801is Missoula, MT where Verizon has native coverage and Sprint does not. When you enter 59801 on the regular Straight Talk site they show you only CDMA phones (which run on Verizon).
But if you enter 54235 (Sturgeon Bay, WI) where Sprint has native coverage and Verizon does not the phone is available! No other Straight Talk phones are available in zip code 54235.
A reader also left a comment saying that Straight Talk had confirmed on their FaceBook page that the phone was on Sprint.
If the Precedent's home network is Sprint, which seems certain at this point, I think that it's safe to assume that the Precedent is basically the same phone as the Boost Samsung Galaxy Prevail which it closely resembles.
If you want to check Sprint vs. Verizon coverage in other areas you can use the following links Verizon prepaid coverage checker, Boost Mobile CDMA coverage checker (Boost works only on the Sprint native network).
