    I Just Bought this Yesterday. Awesome Product, it is very Fast on my WiFi at home. Had the iPhone 3G and iPhone 4 on AT&T Network. Also had the iPhone 4 on Straight Talk for the Last 4 Months. This iPhone 5 is on Straight Talk CDMA using Verizon Network 3G, it is really Fast and reliable. Haven't had an issue with the Cellular Network at all. The Camera Features are Cool and the Panorama Feature works Smooth. Tried out the Video and the Clairity is Great! I Like the Fact the iPhone 5 is Bigger and Sharper. I would Recommend this Product to Everyone.

    I so excited to finally have a I-phone , I have always wanted one but was not willing to go back to a contract. Thank you apple, Straight talk and Walmart for making it possible. I received it a day earlier than expected, I have used straight talk services before and have never been disappointed. Yes you pass full price for the phone, but with a contract you end up paying for the phone plus some over time. If you want an iPhone this is an awesome deal.

    Throttled Data

    Be advised!!!! I have had Straighttalk for several months now. I had the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim but that phone is a entry level android to say the least. However, I bought the Iphone 5 and it worked great for almost a month. Now they have throttled my data which slowed my data speeds down so slow that using the internet is now not even feasible. The unlimited data is not truly unlimited because they will slow your speed down so slow that you can't use the internet. I never had this problem with the Proclaim. And another thing, the customer service reps are not American and literally know nothing about fixing any problem you have. DO NOT purchase if you use the internet much.

    Everything you would expect from an iphone is here. If there is such a thing as being too thin, iPhone is it. It felt awkward compared to earlier models as the edge digs into your hands, but you'll get used to it quickly. The Straight Talk iPhone her in New York City runs on 3G, which is plenty fast for a place with tons of towers. Highly recommended!

    Phone is wonderful; Straight Talk not as much

    I have had IPhones for a couple of years, and recently got an IPhone 5 thru Walmart, and connected to Straight Talk. I am on the Verizon Network, 3G. I seldom use the data capability, but didn't like that it was not automatically installed when I activated the phone. Today, after an hour or more on hold with the provider, I looked at the Straight Talk Wireless Forums, and found a simple procedure to get the data capability. Following instructions, I connected to ITunes on my computer, did a complete backup, then erased the IPhone. Then I restored the backup files to the IPhone from ITunes. The phone shut itself off then on, absorbed the files being restored, and now it is fully functional. My gripe with Straight Talk is there was the need to do this at all, and I had to get the information from a discussion site, not the Straight Talk website.

    • A. Phones purchased through Walmart do not need to be jailbroken to use features!! My iphone 5 works perfect, without jail break (just an fyi, there isn't a legit jailbreak for OS6 anyways) Picture messaging, face time, texting, calling, web, apps and app store work perfectly.

    • A. The only things that don't work 1. LTE 4G, you will have 3G and 2. It appears that Visual Voicemail doesn't work. Facetime and MMS do work.

    • A. Hi Meme, I have Straight Talk on my iphone 4, and having it on a Iphone 5 shouldn't be any different. So Yes, you can use facetime, and No you don't have visual voicemail, you get the standard regular voicemail, and you can also use this iphone for mms (picture&video sending/receiving), but you would need to jailbreak it first, and enter the mms settings, there's also an alternative method without having to jailbreak...Just that this alternative method might work for others, but not some, the 1st method by jailbreaking it's a guarantee to make mms work though. If have any further questions, let me know..
