    is ST discontinuing the Samsung Proclaim

    Just noticed that the Proclaim is no longer listed on the web site for sale by ST. Are they dropping it ? Any other verizon capable smart phones out there for ST?

    currently the Samsung Proclaim is currently the only verizon android smartphone for straight talk.
    it appears that they are just sold out.
    (update)--- you can still find the verizon Samsung Proclaim for net 10 using kirksville mo zip code --63501

    I got two of them last week and need a 3rd. When I checked the site, it's no longer listed. Walmart.com is out of stock too. Anyone know how quickly the stock will be replenished?

    Here's an idea; perhaps, because of Verizon's perceived network value, maybe Verizon contractually limited the number of active ST users on their network.

    I just literally saw a big display the other night at a Wally with probably 100 Proclaim's sitting there...

    I hope it isn't discontinued, I was thinking about getting one. Sold out locally, but they seem to be in stock about 2 hours away near my parents' house. I was going to see them next weekend anyway. When I went to the local Walmart the wireless manager said they had never had the Proclaim in stock, but they had a lot of people asking for them. He wasn't sure why they never got any.

    I haven't been to all the local Wal Marts, but at the three or so I have been to, the Proclaim hasn't even shown up yet.

    None of my local WMarts have it. But coming home from a trip today, I found a few at a WM Supercenter and bought one.

    ST says to just keep checking their website for when they become available again.

    slim might have had them put ice cream sandwich on them as a special treat for all the ST fans and all the elves are working overtime to get those orders filled!

    If anything, perhaps you should, purely for speculatory purposes

    I notice that the VZW Illusion (same as the Proclaim) is also out of stock on the VZW website. Looks like this has been a very popular phone.

    Very surprised the Proclaim is "sold out" or "unavailable" in so many places. Perhaps it has to do with the local market. Around here CDMA is pretty strong, and so the majority of devices at Wally are CDMA. The same is true for the store I know has at least 100 of them just sitting around. Maybe in strong GSM markets there just isn't much of a rush or reason to get them stocked. Just a theory.
