Straight Talk iPhone 5, 4S and 4 available at Walmart, all run on Verizon network

Posted by 12 January, 2013



Straight Talk iPhone 5, 4S and 4 available at Walmart, all run on Verizon networkAs 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

Straight Talk iPhone 5, 4S and 4 available at Walmart, all run on Verizon networkEven 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.

    DAMN!!!!!!!! I should have waited a year. I had straight talk for a long time but went to T-Mobile because I wanted a smartphone and the ones they had that ran off sprints network sucked because sprint is nowhere. Now I have a chance to get an Iphone on straight talk but can’t because I’m STUCK IN A CONTRACT!!!!!! Damn my luck :-(

    Straight Talk’s “unlimited” is far from it. In their TOS, streaming video and music – Youtube anyone? Pandora anyone? – is forbidden.

  • Dawn Schutte says:

    May I now switch my iPhone 4S to the Verizon network from the AT&T network? I’ve been with StraightTalk for 3 years now, since May 2012 with the iPhone. I would prefer to use the Verizon network.
    Thank you!

    I have the iPhone 5 and I want to know what kind of sims card I need for it to take it over to straight talk

    I need help in moving from my Straight Talk Verizon Wireless SAMSUNG 355 Model to the iPhone 5 model. I called the Hastings Michigan Walmart where I bought this 355 & was told good luck because they do not sell the Verizon iPhone 5. What am I supposed to do? I have great service from Verizon now with Straight Talk and do not wish to change to another wireless carrier.

  • Ben says:

    Galaxy Showcase (which is an original Galaxy S phone), Galaxy Proclaim (which is the Illusion if you get Verizon’s prepaid). That’s it for smartphones other than the iPhones.

    I intend to get an iPhone 4s and move off my 3GS (which is currently on AT&T). getting it through ST/Walmart because they shouldn’t have to require jailbreaking to get MMS working on iOS 6.
