Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 145reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5★ by BE AWARE!!!! OK i bought two of these the other day and payed cash in full and when i got them home to activate them the calling and texting works but the cellular data doesnt work at all when i talk to customer service they try everything to get it to work and still nothing the account is active and they say everything should work fine but once im away from my home wifi i cannot connect to the internet at all just a warning to everyone thinking about buying this i spent about 1500 dollars on basically an ipod that can make calls :/ highly dissapointed im going to try and resolve the issue ill post back here if it gets solved. 02/10/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by No Internet Through 3G Warning! Please Read 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, 03/02/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good for $45 but... 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. 02/13/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Not with straight talk 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. 02/08/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Disappointed Internet service has not worked since I purchased the phone. I have been on the phone for hours three times, emailed and still no data service. I was told to give them 72 hours to resolve the problem.Will be returning. 01/27/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great to have for straight talk but ... Overall, satisfied. Make sure it is activated correctly for the Internet it should be 13.1 not 14. I did not have Internet when I left the house. It is kind of slow 3G but Siri works and so far I am getting what I need once I had the phone reactivated. First time IPhone owner so I am excited. It is thru Verizon towers, no SIM card. If you want AT&T you need to buy unlocked phone from apple and buy SIM card online at Walmart and call straight talk to activate. 02/06/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Phone beware of upgrading iOS Purchased this phone with Walmart's special financing deal ($25.00 / month no interest# and bought a $45 service card. The phone was working great: good call quality, good web/data speeds, mms, and texting were great. Then I updated the phone to iOS 6.1.2, that is when I had problems. I was no longer able to send or recieve MMS texts, and I had no web capabilities. So after many attempts to reset, reboot, clear all data and settings, erase all data and setting, fresh installs and *22890's nothing worked EXCEPT stayin on the line with customer serviceI talked to the first operator who then elevated me to technical support. After a few minutes he had me tell him the version of the phone and PRL of the phone #go to settings>general>about>then you will see the line that says Carrier. well you have to physically tap on the word Carrier to show your PRL, as soon as you take your finger and press the word Carrier it will turn to PRL). After about five minutes they had me restart the phoneThe version changed and the phone was working again. It took a while but there is a solution. Other than the problem of 6.1.2 the phone and the service have been great. 03/05/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by The Straight Talk Data Service is what I'm rating. The phone was terrific and coverage seemed pretty good at least in regards to voice/text. It did not work right out of the box but eventually after hours on the phone with Straight Talk they were able to activate the data portion of the service. However the speeds of the data service were very slow. I wasn't expecting 4g speeds but hoped for something closer to 3G. Actual speeds were argue-ably less than 2G. With the Speedtest app, I averaged 0.25 Mbps for both upload and download in densely populated parts of Chicago. I called Straight Talk to see if I could expect better and they said no. I've returned the phone and canceled the rest of my service. If data speeds are not important then Straight Talk is a good bargain. However with the Iphone 5, it felt like driving a Ferrari on a dirt road. 04/16/2013
