    phones that work on straight talk

    Hi, I'm new to all this and very confused! LOL
    My question is: I am looking for an android phone that works for straight talk, but it has to run off verizon in able for it to work in my area. Does anyone know what brands that would be?
    I understand that the galaxy proclaim works in my area, but I would like a little bit of a better phone (it's for my daughter and she wants one with the front facing camera)
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    To get a front facing camera to work on a data that does not allow streaming may not work out like you are expecting. You may have a tearful daughter and you will be frustrated. I do think you an have good results on wifi if you find the right app. Maybe Google hangout would work.

    As of this time, the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim is the only Android phone being offered by Straight Talk that runs with Verizon towers. We are still waiting for additional updates for new phones that will be offered.
    Thank you.

    No. "C" can also indicate a Sprint phone since they are also CDMA.

    If you want prepaid VZW service with any phone you wish, then Page Plus is the provider you need to look at. They have a very active forum here and can help you out.
