Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 140reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by no data :( This is a nice phone but data does not work so i called straight talk last night was on the phone for 2 hours and they still could not find out why the data is not working.. Everything else about the phone works great, love the phone just wish they would fix the data problem, i would hate to send it back for this one problem....Is anybody else having the same problem if so did u get it fixed? 02/08/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by NOT UNLIMITED DATA 1.5GB ONLY READ FINE PRINT The phone is fine the service advertised is misleading and Walmart is aware of its limitations. I bought 2 iPhone 5s and in the first month my son's internet was disabled after he hit 1.5GB, so this is not "Unlimited Data." Also, once you have had your data shut down you will never get the same internet download speed back. Read the terms and agreements paragraph 6&7 on the Straight Talk website and you will see this service is limited and they won't give you any answers from Tech support. The store associates don't tell you this but most know about it. You are better off paying for a data plan with a carrier, unfortunately I am stuck with 2 iphones and very limited data! 08/05/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Exactly as Expected! I bought this phone through Straight Talk's website but you can't leave a review there. I was a little hesitant to get this phone because of the negative reviews regarding setup and mms/data issues. However, I decided to go for it anyways and I don't regret it for a minute! I upgraded the phone to 7.0.2 through itunes before I activated the phone and haven't had any problems with mms/data whatsoever. In fact I haven't had any problems with the phone in any aspect. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. I had the Galaxy Centura and was having problems with force closes and freezing and I'm glad I upgraded. Don't let the negative reviews steer you away, this is a great phone! 10/23/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Watered down iOS CAN NOT SEND PHOTO MESSAGES! If you purchase this beware!! You CAN NOT send photo messages to other phones!! Straight talk has limited the abilities of this iPhone!! My wife and I both got them, DATA never worked! You MUST be on wifi for any internet to work, to download maps, or to use iMessage. You can send photos to other iPhones via iMessage if you are on your home or work wifi! We returned them. Terrible service!! It uses Tracfone Wireless service which shows TFW as the provider, but it bounces off of Verizon Towers... Very disappointed!! 02/17/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Not able to get data working and bad CS Excited for this phone. Can call, text and use wifi but cannot connect to mobile network. My main reason was to get faster mobile Internet without a contract. 4 hours of trying to get the Internet to connect and no luck. Spent an hour on with Straight Talk trying to make it work. Was told return for another phone. I am just returning. There and tons of iphone 5 complaints with the same issue on the straight talk forum. No one seems to get it fixed. Straight talk has long wait times to get through. You also get messages saying they are very busy try again later and then it just disconnects after you waited a half hour. You are sent from one rep to another and no one can help! So, I'm just returning the phone and that is all. I am displeased with straight talks customer service. I will keep my old phone. Not worth the $$$ or time on hold. 03/18/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Value I am pretty careful with my money and have never wanted to spend a lot for a cell phone or a service plan. I am also not very technical when it comes to setting up equipment. This is my first smart phone. It is an excellent value and easy to use. It is even better than I expected and exceeds my expectations in every respect. 10/03/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Great Phone, poor service with StraightTalk The IPhone 5 is awesome.Alas the Straight Talk service is horrible in NYC.Not only is 3G service (not 4) but I can't even connect to the web!Luckily it works perfectly at home on wifi.For same full price I could have bought the phone at Apple store and use another provider. 01/28/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by awesome phone and service!! I had straight talk when it first came out to the world and wasnt that pleased with the service or customer service! It was awful.. So i decided to switch to U.S cellular which was awful and the cellphone bills were unreal. After awhile i heard that the iphone had come out for straight talk and heard excellent reviews about this product, and also negative reviews too.. I decided to give it a try, it was cheaper and the phone seemed to be great quality!I am very glad i made the switch, cut my phone bill in half and excellent cellphone service where I am located! Also this phone is most definitely the BEST phone out of any cellphone Ive ever owned!!!!!! 02/20/2014
