The Iphone 5s meets all expectations. It is a great phone and having owned both androids and Iphones, I like the Iphones by a longshot. I've been with Straight Talk for awhile and if you want this phone to work for you, you need to do your homework. First, understand that this is a GSM phone and that if your area has a bad signal for GSM phones, don't bother getting this phone and don't blame Straight Talk or Walmart either. It has nothing to do with them. Now, once you receive this phone, it WILL WORK assuming you figured out reception in your area. An issue you might run into, which I did, is that the phone might only display "3G" when off Wifi. This has nothing to do with the phone, you just need to call Straight Talk. I bought two of these phones, one for me and one for my wife. My wife's phone displayed "4G LTE" all the time and mine didn't. It always showed "3G". They were the exact same phones too. After making 5 separate calls to Straight Talk, only one of the representatives had the brains to research my location and update my phone on their end. Immediately my signal changed to 4G LTE. As I said earlier, I've been with Straight Talk for awhile and I've figured out that all their representatives are not created equal. Their customer service is bad, but it has gotten MUCH better over the years. This phone is great and for the price, even better. And although Straight Talk isn't perfect, they are by far the best deal around. I've been with Verizon, AT&T, Ting & Sprint. Straight Talk is the best value for your dollar!
