    Okay I own this phone and received it 1/14. I could not be any happier with Verizon's CDMA network that this phone runs off of. The 3G is full speed and not throttled like some prepaid services. When you make a phone call to someone with this device and if they have caller ID it will ring Verizon wireless. When unboxing the phone you will find it is boxed in the OEM apple box with a straight talk sticker on the box regarding activation. The phone itself is completely not branded in any physical way with straight talk logos etc. Also there is no straight talk bloat ware installed in the phone either. So physically and software wise this is identical to any other iPhone 5 that would be black and 16gb on Verizon or AT&T. Once again this a CDMA model that uses Verizon's 3G network. It has an lte radio but there is no lte service for this phone. Now regarding straight talks TOS they prohibit streaming music and videos. I've found that streaming music hardly uses any data and used in moderation with pandora etc you should be fine. They leave you alone if you stay under 100MB a day and also 2GB a month. Streaming videos is a bandwidth hog and you should do it under a wifi connection. With this said tethering this device is a poor choice and will easily flag you in their system as using far to much data so I would steer away from considering that. Now the reason I gave the phone 4 stars and not 5 was simply because I don't like the fact they say unlimited for 45 a month when it really is 2gb a month. For value I paid for the phone without financing because financing a cellphone is really a silly thing to do. And owning a 650$ is crazy without insurance so I signed up for apples 100$ a year apple care. Now for expectations I did a lot of research before buying the phone and got exactly what I expected and then some. I honestly did not think the 3G would have been this fast.

    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!

    If you have never used an iPhone on Straight Talk, go ahead and download iTunes on your home computer and get the full benefit of itunes with your new iPhone. You can activate the phone over the pc or over wifi. Do not update to iOs 6.1 until you fully activate the phone, your data is working and you can send/receive mms. After you are sure everything works as it should, go ahead and do a backup, then install the upgrade to iOs 6.1 If you are already on Straight Talk with an iPhone, do not restore from your old backup. You will mess up the APN and will lose data and mms capability. Activate the phone as a NEW PHONE over wifi. Do not use iCloud during setup. After the phone is fully activated and you can use your browser to access the internet (with wifi turned off), your mms works, and everything works as it should, turn on iCloud and do a backup. THEN you can install iOs 6.1 Everything should still work when it is complete. Install your apps from the Appstore. Once you have all stuff as it should be, do another backup to icloud. If you want to use your iTunes on the pc, you will have to overwrite the old backup before you do anything else. Load all your music and stuff and you will be good to go. This is a great phone. It uses Verizon network. You will only get 3G on it. NO LTE. But Verizon 3G is everywhere. Beats AT&T, especially in buildings. Verizon works where other services will not. Your 3G speeds will be from 1 to 2.5Mbps, which is plenty fast enough. Webpages load fast. Siri works great, but I prefer Google. Download Google maps. The Applemaps are messed up. The first few days of use, let the battery get down below 50percent before you recharge. I can get two days without charging easily. I highly recommend this phone if you are in a good Verizon footprint.

    • 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.

    The iPhone 5 is LTE capable, but I am not sure if the Straighttalk network supports LTE...
    by PotentialCustomer 1/11/2013

    • 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?
