Well the iPhone 5 is just a great phone. It is one of the best, but not the best phone out there. I like the phone a lot though, and it feels great in the hand and works very well. The 3G, according to the speed tests I did, is full speed on Straight Talk. However, it appears there is some blocking going on with certain services. I cannot access Facebook or Twitter on the 3G connection. I can access YouTube but can not stream a video even at low quality. I couldn't post any status updates on Facebook while I was out, or update my feed. Not that it's a big deal to me, but if you like doing that stuff, you might run into the same problem and be upset about it especially since no where did I read anything about certain services being blocked. I haven't found anyone saying they have the same issue, so maybe it is just me. It's just odd that only 3 things won't load but my internet browser loads google, my searches, and other websites very fast while I'm on 3G...siri even works fine. So who knows.

I purchased this phone about 2 weeks ago at my local Wal-Mart. It comes in the original iPhone box just as you would get from the Apple store with no Straight Talk branding on the phone or box whatsoever. There is activation information attached to the outside of the box. Essentially this is the unlocked Verizon iPhone 5. It doesn't have a sim card in it so it runs off of Verizon's 3G network, which for me, was surprisingly fast. I get a great signal everywhere I go and the call quality is crystal clear. The iPhone 5 is a really great phone. Using it with Straight Talk is the same as any other carrier as long as you follow Straight Talks Terms of Service. I give the iPhone 5 along with Straight Talks service 5 stars as I am extremely pleased with it and only pay $45/month! The upfront cost ($650) for the phone is a little pricey but with the no interest finance plan Wal-Mart currently offers this is a great deal!

The Iphone 5 is a nice phone, but as soon as I activated it, it had no internet through 3G, you can use it through a wifi like a Ipod touch. I can call and text with it only, but I got this to use with Itunes and surf the web, if I just wanted to text, and call only I would have saved my 650.00 and got a cheap tracfone. I cannot find a fix anywhere on the internet, I called customer service for hours and hours, their English is very poor and hard to understand, so I have to keep asking them to repeat and they are rude, one asked me to take out the battery, you can't on this phone, and what they do tell you to do does not work, I tried it all over and over and over again. I'm am not the only one with this problem, if you search on google this is a big issue not being addressed by Straight Talk. If you really want an Iphone go to a big carrier, and it will cost you but at least you 'll have 3G/ 4G LTE guaranteed data!, I'm paying 45 dollars just to call and text with no data, and I don't know if I will get this solved or not, I'm gonna keep trying but it looks like a hopeless cause,

The phone is great I just wouldnt getit through straight talk. They tell you that you can get att service but u end up with verizon. Which is still cool but the internet doesnt work at all. I been trying to get through to customer support for at least 4-5 hours and have yet to connect. I got through once and the told me to call them back from a different phone other than my cell ok. So not the wait game begins again. I get through again only because i said something other than what the problem was and they bounce you around cause none of them no how to work the iphone service. So I get a guy he tells me to cut the phone off and turn it back on. Then to connect to the internet. I tell him it didnt connect and he says ok now your connected. No i'm not connected ok sir he says and i'm going to connect you to a different department. We all know all these people siting in one room amongst each other cause you can hear the other agents in the background. Besides for the internet issue i like the phone but to pay 742 for the phone and monthly mintues is it really worth it.

I purchased this phone online from Walmart and received it on 2/5/13. After an exhausting 2+ hours on the phone with Straight Talk to get the phone activated, I thought we were "all set." The service is good, even in rural areas; however, after finding out that Straight Talk considers free text messages such as credit card alerts, etc., to be premium messages, I elected to take my "unlocked' phone to another service. Imagine my surprise when I found out this phone cannot be used by any other service -- only Straight Talk! I am returning the phone to Walmart for a refund. I will say that the online representative from Walmart could not have been more helpful. Straight Talk's customer service is horrible!

The iPhone 5 is LTE capable, but I am not sure if the Straighttalk network supports LTE...

  • A. LTE is disabled. On Verizon it is limited to 3G speeds. If you put an AT&T sim in it will do HSDPA+, but no LTE.

  • A. HSPA+, no LTE on Straight Talk yet but one day there will be. Probably not for at least 1 to 2 years though. All iphone 5's are LTE capable but carries usually lock them to their own networks. Only Apple stores sell a truly unlocked iPhone and they only sell GSM/LTE unlocked phones which can be used with TMobile, AT&T, and yes, Straight Talk. Also YOU CAN TAKE A LOCKED AT&T IPHONE TO STRAIGHT TALK AND IT WILL WORK.

  • A. ST doesn't support LTE. It supports HSPA+ which is marketed as 4G but really isn't true 4G. HSPA+ is plenty fast enough for most people. If you want to know more about HSPA+ just google it.

  • A. I have a iPhone 5 from at&t using Straight Talk sim card and the network gives 4G not LTE speeds, you can activate the LTE but only get 4G speeds but that is better than 3G or EDGE using Tmobile. The main question is this device is GSM or CDMA in the last case Verizon or Sprint give access to 4G LTE speeds?

  • A. A1429 is an INTERNATIONAL model. It is actually better than A1428, since it is designed to work in Asia/Europe/Central and Latin America. It is a DUAL BAND CDMA/GSM Model A1429 – CDMA/GSM Global Model This iPhone is the one that CDMA carriers and all European and Asian carriers will sell. Like Model A1428, it supports quad-band GSM and quad-band UMTS with single cell and dual cell HSPA+ modes. This model trades in support for LTE band classes 2, 4, 5, and 17 for LTE band classes 1 (IMT, 2.1GHz), 3 (DCS, 1.8GHz), 5 (Cellular 850, 850MHz), 13 (Upper 700MHz C block), and 25 (US Extended PCS, 1.9GHz). Additionally, it supports CDMA2000 on band classes 0 (Cellular 850, 850MHz), 1 (PCS, 1.9GHz), 10 (ESMR 800, 800MHz), and 6 (IMT, 2.1GHz).

  • A. Warranty is 1 year. You may also purchase additional coverage specifically for hardware and support, see the website www.straighttalk.com for the agreement. Aside from that, electronics purchases at Walmart.com typically come with an offer for two year "Care Plan" option that covers accidental breakage and is likely pro-rata, not replacement nor purchase price. HOWEVER, it was not offered when I placed I5 in my cart. I digressed, please check Straight Talk website for coverage.

  • A. I think if you purchase a Apple Care $99.99 on an Apple Store covers 1 year only, I don't know if Walmart offers some insurance for 2 years. The carrier offers Straight Talk Easy Exchange program where you may be eligible to trade in a damaged phone, check your options at http://www.straighttalk.com/handsetprotection Please note that activation zips in Florida and California are not currently eligible for this program.
