    In the past two week my Proclaim has experienced a delay in dialing a number. It takes about 28 seconds for the phone to dial out. I have called Straight Talk and each time they have corrected the problem temporally. A couple days later it is back to the delay dialing. Today Straight Talk said if it happens again they will replace my phone. Anyone else having this problem?

    Neither the wife's Proclaim, nor mine experience this issue.

    We also use Google Voice, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

    Well I received my replacement phone today and my very first call with the Straight Talk rep still on the land line had the 28 second delay. This being a different phone told me and them the issue must be with Verizon and not the phone itself. After a second attempt to reprogram the new phone they got it working. For how long who knows? I did tell the lady that I would be talking with them soon but I hope not.

    When I bought the first phone I bought an 8 gig msd card and I

    Best of luck to you!

    As for music, address, and photos... Here's what I do about them.

    Music: Use Google Play Music to store all my music to their free cloud service. I then mark those albums/tracks I want locally cached (if I anticipate being in a non-WiFi and non-3G area). Otherwise, usually allow it to stream. Hey, I have unlimited data, right? :D

    Address: I just let my Google Apps / GMail account hold all contact info. If they are special places I want to go or whatever, then I mark it as a "Place" in Google Maps. Again, allows for cloud to store the data and keep it sync'd with the phone.

    Photos: Two options here. What I used to do was install "Google+" and allow it to auto-upload all photos/videos to your "Instant Album" which is accessible via Google+ or PicasaWeb. You do not need to actually use Google+ for anything else. This is probably the easiest option. My only complaint was not being able to download videos from PicasaWeb/Google+ to my PC. You can download the photos. -- So I now use second option: Install Eye-Fi app on your phone and PC. Amazingly, you don't seem to need an actual Eye-Fi card. The Eye-Fi app will use your 3G/WiFi to automatically send your photos and videos (unaltered) to your PC (even if your PC isn't on!). As a bonus, you can have the Eye-Fi service auto-upload the photo/video to any folder you want on PicasaWeb. Worth checking out. Warning: Need patience to figure it out.

    Long story short: Don't live your life on an SD card. They can fail, get wet, or lost. Use that unlimited data plan to your advantage and get the data copied to the cloud/your PC.

    This was a public service announcement from your local Imperial Sith Lord.

    Some very good points. I do have all of my music on my computer external hard drive so that is protected. My addresses are synced with Google with a few exceptions. Most of the phone photos are nothing special but if I do get one I want to keep I load it to my sky drive and then save it to my PC.

    Thanks for the info. FYI so far so good with the replacement phone.

    Well the problem is back and Straight Talk is not being as helpful as I would like. As I read searches for this problem it seems others (different phones) do have this problem. Anyone know of a fix?

    I had this issue a month ago, took it 30 seconds or more before I would even hear it dialing. When I called ST about this it took them awhile but they had me dial *22890 to reprogram the phone to their services. Had to do that 3x but it has worked normally since then. Good luck with yours, I had nothing better to do with 30-45 minutes that day to spend on the phone with them till they figured it out. But at least it got fixed.
