    No he is talking about a pre pay wireless and its name is Straight Talk. Its 50 bucks a month for unlimited talk text and data that uses verizons network. What he is asking is if you can flash the software in the phone to that network. I have heard of people doing this for Criket.

    First, read this forum to get an idea of what would be involved:Howard Forums

    It isn't legal in the USA and is frowned upon by nearly everyone in the cellular community.

    If you decide it's a risk you'd be willing to take, go here and here to get an idea of how dumb of an idea it is.

    Spend the extra $30 for peace of mind.

    I am pretty sure this is all illegal activity. Why not just buy a regular straight talk phone and use it like that. I have one for my business and it works wonderful. No need to try and do anything weird when straight talk already provides great phones.

    Any advice on the straight talk androids that will run on the verizon towers? I'm looking at the Samsung proclaim, Motorola defy xt, and a Samsung s950c galaxy s that is only sold in a limited amount of stores. Going by the reviews I've found the Samsung s950c galaxy s looks to me to be the best choice for me but I'm not sure.

    I currently have a Droid 4 and realize it will be a downgrade but cannot justify or afford the $190 a month for 2 phones anymore. I just need to figure out which of these 3 phones are the best choice.

    I can understand why someone would want to do this. If you have a perfectly good phone why buy another one if you can make it work. I don't know about everyone else but I pefer not to spend anymore money that I have to.
