web site for just $59.99.
That's a great deal because the phone runs on Verizon's much admired network and the Proclaim is also a much better phone than Straight Talk's other sub $100 phones on Verizon. Brand new, the Proclaim sells for $149.99. Straight Talk's refurbs are generally indistinguishable from new.
The Proclaim's pluses include a 3.5 inch 320x480 px (HVGA) screen, 1GHz Processor, 3 MP camera and a generous 1 GB of internal memory for downloaded apps. Negatives are that it runs the older, but still capable Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and the camera lacks auto-focus and a flash, but the phone is still a great deal for the price.
The Proclaim works with Straight Talk's $45/month unlimited talk, messaging and web plan.
If you don't see the Proclam on the Straight talk site, try entering a San Francisco zip code like 94102. After you place your order you can change the zip code to your own in the shipping address form at check out. As long as you have native (not roaming) Verizon coverage the Proclaim should activate and work. If you aren't sure about coverage check it on the Verizon prepaid coverage map.
Straight Talk's sister brand, NET10 is also selling the refurbished Proclaim for $59.99.
