    Best iPhone Ever

    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.

    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.

    • I called Straightalk and they said no to 4G LTE. They said it is a CDMA model and runs on the Verizon 4g network only. There are different iphone models for GSM and CDMA networks, so one will not work on all networks. Additionally, the iphones do not have all the available frequencies that different carriers use. So its likely that the model sold runs on 3g and some 4g networks while not running on ATT networks. This would likely be why the monthly price is so cheap, as Verizon is selling their slower network as their customers are moving to the faster network. I asked if there was a test period and it is 15 days to get a full refund on price of phone. As the monthly card is used during the 15 days, there is no refund on the monthly card price....thus $45/plus taxes is wasted if phone is returned in the first 15 days. Unless you know someone in your area that uses Verizon 4g (non-LTE) and know their speeds, it is not worth the price. Best bet is to wait for price to come down or wait to see how customers fair on test speeds.

    • I bought this phone last night, model A1429. This is a CDMA phone. It appears to be Verizon MVNO. There is NOT LTE service on this phone with Straight Talk service. 3G service is the best I can get. :(

    • Yes it does run on the 4g LTE. Straight Talk uses the AT&T service line. So where ever AT&T is at Straight Talk is at
