  1. Hey Dennis,

    I just ordered a Net10 Reconditioned Galaxy Proclaim off their website for $59.99 with free shipping and then I noticed in the above line-up Amazon has the Galaxy Centura(Net10) on sale for $64.99 with free shipping. Did I make a mistake or will I like the Proclaim better. It has many, many more 4 star reviews even though it has Ice Cream Sandwich and the Proclaim has Gingerbread. Proclaim also has a bigger processor. What do you think? BTW, can I use the Net10 Proclaim phone with other carriers like Straight Talk or PagePlus?

    Thanks!

    1. I think it's a toss up.

      Proclaim is slightly thinner and lighter with a faster processor and longer battery life. It was more expensive originally and seems to have a little higher build quality.

      The Centura is newer, has ICS and more internal memory.

  2. Thanks, Dennis,

    in that case I'll stick with my Net10 Proclaim. On the other question, I'm a little confused by all I am reading about sims. I thought as long as the phone was a CDMA phone I could use other carrier cards like Straight Talk & PagePlus. Am I thinking correctly and would I have to change sims or not?

    Thanks!

    1. CDMA phones, unless they also have LTE, don't use SIMs. With CDMA the carrier controls whether a phone can be activated on its network. Most carriers don't allow phones from other carriers. PagePlus is one that does and several users have activated Proclaims on PagePlus. The phones worked by the roaming indicator was always on even though the phone wasn't actually roaming.

    2. Offhand, I would suggest you check out Red Pocket at $29.99 and Air Voice at $30, both with unlimited talk and text and some limited amounts of data.

  6. All Nokia phones are on sale, apparently.

    Would you buy a MSFT phone? Microsoft announced it will pay around $7.2 billion for Nokia's mobile phones business and a license to its patents and mapping software. Microsoft will acquire more than half of Nokia's 56,000 employees and much of its Lumia smartphone and Asha feature phone business.

    The companies expect the deal to close in the first quarter of next year.

    PS: This also frees up the Nokia CEO Stephen Elop to take over for Balmer. Leading candidate.
