Samsung Galaxy Proclaim SCH-S720C User Manual for Net10 & StraightTalk

If you planned on having an Samsung Android in which it not so high on the price aka quite cheap, this Samsung Galaxy Proclaim can be one of the choice. It would be available under 200USD I guess.

Of course, having this such price means that the specifications had by this SCH-S720c isn’t good as the high end phone or the expensive one. And if you like to elaborate what the Proclaim capable for and do for, It is better that you read the Manual in which it discuss the features and some applications and capabilities of the phone — in case for consideration before your decided to have it.

There is nothing much I can tell about the User Manual / User Guide of this Proclaim. If you try to find basic applications usage available on this phone, you can go to section 11: Applications in which in this section you can find a lot of tutorial about how to use the apps. It including the Camera, Clock, Alarm, Google Books, Calculator, Google Latitude, Google Place, Taks Manager and more. See the detail on page 82 to page 89.

The picture that we gave you above can be seen also on page 18 to page 20. That would help you to understand the Galaxy Proclaim and operate it properly. Such as for the back side you can see the 3Megapixel camera lens, the microphone or USB and power port. In the user Manual it also provided the detail of each part/keys functions, but we arranged differently for better and quick understanding. for example on p.19 Volume keys has details function likes “From home screen, press to adjust Master Volume, During calls or music plyaback, press to adjust volume, Press to mut the ringtone of an incoming call; Power/Lock key: Press and hold to turn the phone on or off. Press to lock the phone or to wake the screen for unlocking

And for Factory data reset, you can find the tutorial at page 109. I said that this master/hard reset would erase all data from Proclaim’s memory and reest all the settings back to its original. Go to Menu Key > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Do the reset > Follow the rest. If you want to delete installed SD card, you can select the Format SD card option too.

If you see a blank page, just Reload your browser.

      this is a verizon phone. I just bought it because I had the precedent and its was sprint and didn’t have coverage in my area anymore. So if verizon is good in your area this should work.

  1. Ben says

    how do you take a screen shot with this phone? i keep doing it by accident but can never seem to do it when i want to.

    • Suluh says

      Usually, it can be done by using power button and home button combination. Try this: press power button, then press home button fro about 2 seconds.

  3. marcy says

    I just got a samsung galaxy proclaim. When I place or recieve a call the person on the other end cant hear me very well. My voice is muffeled or they cant hear me at all.

    • Suluh says

      1. It can be the speaker. 2. It can be your SIM card with its data networks. Try to change the SIM to others phone, if the problem still occurred, ask your provider carrier help. Otherwiser, you just need to get your phone to Samsung Service center to fix your phone’s problem.

    • ChazInMT says

      This CDMA phone doesn’t have a SIM card numnutz. Have you put a phone cover on your Proclaim? If so, make sure the tiny little microphone hole isn’t covered on the bottom edge of the phone next to the MicroUSB power port. Chck to make sure this isn’t plugged up as well. My 2¢.

  4. Kevin Husslein says

    I have a gmail account but everytime I get an email it goes into both my gmail account and my email account which I don’t want. Want to get rid of the regular “email” icon so it doesn’t also receive my emails.

      Maybe by bow you have solved this, but I’ll reply in case not…….

      1. Open Email acct, not Gmail.

      3. Select Accounts
      4. Press Menu again
      5. Press Common Settings
      6. Un-Check the box by Download notification

      This worked for me.

  5. Emmy says

  10. Mahi Kashyap says

    Hello Everyone
    I am from India and using Samsung Galaxy Y. Some days ago, I went to Samsung Service Centre, as got some water damage. And they checked that, and told me that the phone touch and jack are destroyed and have to replace these. I said okay coz my phone was under warranty. But they told me that they would charge me 4000/-. As it was near the half amount of new phone’s price. Then I went to another service centre and they told me to charge 1600/-. So I gave my phone to them as they were charging less amount then first one. But my some of friends told me that they have charged me unnecessarily. Because if our any product is under warranty, the company pay for their repair. So I contacted the centre for same but they didn’t respond me for my issue. So, I filed my complaint in Consumer Court. I just hope for great help from their side as soon as possible. I just shared my experience to aware you guys. I hope it worked.

  11. says

    You have to go to the app store and install a free call blocking app. They work great to block calls and even have features to block texts if you’d like. great block options to choose from.

  12. KIM says

    Everytime I receive a call or text the phone voice tells me who I am receiving the call or text from. How do I turn that option off?

    Why does this phone have 2 FB apps on it? If I delete one, the puctures of my contacts go away. Each time I add a new friend to fb I have to uninstall fb and put it back on to get their contact pix to show up. What am I doing wrong here? It’s driving me nuts!!

  14. Ellen says

I never was told there was soecial rules when I bought into straight talk..I guess they expect ppl to sign in & out every 5 mins. She claimed I would mess up their towers. Ive never heard of that before.

    I have 3 widgets in my task bar that resemble the Play Store widget. I also have a square that says:
    4 P
    1 W
    I know this is in reference to 4 pictures, 1 word game, but why is it on my task bar and what are the other widgets and how do I delete all of this.

  53. Valerie says

    I accidentally removed a harassing voicemail message and want to retrieve it. I have spoken both with Straight Talk who told me it could be retrieved remotely and that it couldn’t be retrieved. I was told by Samsung Straight Talk should have a remote department who could access the message (Straight Talk said they do not have such a department). Straight Talk then told me to go through Verizon but I was unable to do so since the phone carrier is Straight Talk. Please help. I have spent over 2 hours making phone calls regarding this issue.

    • Suluh says

      There is nothing I can do either. The voicemail was saved on the Carrier, before you deleted it. It might that the Straight Talk uses Verizon Voice Server Service to store your Straight Talk voicemail, that why they suggest you to talk to Verizon.

  54. DeeDee says

    Please help :(

    I have reviewed your website and can not find the answer on this. I just recently deleted some important text messages and have spent hours on google trying to find out if there is a way to retrieve them. I have seen this question asked several times but I do not see responses.

    Thank you in advance for input.

    • Suluh says

      There are some software that have ability to retrieve deleted file or document, but are usually designed for hard drive under NTFS or FAT file systems (microSD/SSD). If your text messages were saved and deleted to/from SIM memory or phone’s internal memory, it might a little bit hard to retrieve it.

  55. katie says

    when I go to try and use the browser it says to check my connections, it thought I was suppose to be able to access the web where ever I have cell reception. anyone know what im doing wrong

  56. annie5 says

    Help.. I cannot find ‘Voice Mail’ on my Galaxy Proclaim at all. And when someone tries to leave a voicemail, it tells them my voicemail box is Full… but I can’t find it…how do I recover it or get to it?
    Also, When someone calls me, I can swipe to allow the call but it does not connect me to them at all. I have to wait til they quit calling and check my Call Log to call them back.

  57. Stacey says

    The button to switch from English to Spanish is in a bad spot. I accidentally hit this a lot.especially when swyping. Can it be shut off?

  58. Ron D. says

    Can numbers be added to “emergency call” on the opening page? Would like to put “ICE” numbers there….
