As announced, Straight Talk iPhone 5 and the previous versions, 4S and 4, have become available at both Walmart stores and their website. What was not clear until now, regardless of knowing that all models are CDMA, is which network Straight Talk iPhone 5, 4S and 4 are running on. Well, all of its iPhones use Verizon’s network, which obviously is the better option than Sprint due to a larger and more reliable coverage.
There is more good news. Walmart, in its press release, hasn’t mentioned all of the iPhone models that are now available for purchase, therefore, more iPhones than expected are listed at Walmart’s website:
- An 8 GB iPhone 4, in black and white, available for $449
- A 16 GB iPhone 4S, in black and white, available for $549.00
- A 16 GB iPhone 5, in black and white, available for $649.99
- A 32 GB iPhone 5, in black or white, available for $749.99
- A 64 GB iPhone 5, in black or white, available for $849.99
Even though the price of most of them may scare more than a few customers, still, Walmart offers special financing for two of them, an 8 GB iPhone 4 and a 16 GB iPhone 5. Walmart financing is available through the Walmart credit card until April 2, 2013. It involves paying fixed payments of $25 per month with no interest. It takes 18 months to pay off the iPhone 4 and 26 months for the 16 GB iPhone 5. This offer is available in Walmart stores only.
Straight Talk iPhone 5, 4S and 4 are compatible with Straight Talk’s $45 and $60 unlimited plan. A $45 unlimited plan offers unlimited talk, text and data while $60 unlimited plan comes with unlimited international calling to over a 1000 destinations in addition to unlimited service. Previously, Straight Talk was terminating service to users who exceed around 100MB of data per day and 2GB per month. However, that’s not the case anymore. According to users’ reports, Straight Talk now considerably throttles data or notifies users that go over those limits.
