It is Verizon for sure I got my daughter one and my father one as well since verizon is the only carrier who gets service where my father lives except US cellular. The phone works great.

In the rural area we are in you have slim pickings as to what carrier has good service in certain areas.

Verizon has great coverage in this area but their contract phones are a bit pricey for my father and daughter's usage. But to get Verizon coverage on an android pre paid with straight talk is just a win/win for me. The only thing is that I really would like to root these phones so that they can use wifi tehtering in a pinch.

Its not going to be very often but sure is handy when you need it.

at the moment I have them set up for USB tethered sharing for internet when they have to have it mobile.

Id be willing to donate if someone takes up the challenge of rooting the Proclaim/illusion

I'm not currently a developer, but between the Proclaim and the Illusion I would think there's enough of an audience to develop something for these phones. The user group should be rather large.

I got it! But I hope we can get a trusted root. I'm afraid the straight talk software will go buggy if I root it. And I want to go over to ice cream.
