    Is straight talk owned by Verizon?

    Just bought a straight talk phone and was informed it works on the verizon network does that mean that they own it?

    Straight also uses At&t towers. The boxes for those phones have GSM on the front, the verizon ones have CDMA or nothing.

    It's owned by TracFone. If the phone has a C at the end of the name of the phone (after the number) it works on Verizon. If it has a SIM card and a G at the end, it works on AT&T or T-Mobile depending on the area.
    v Speed Test with my Motorola Droid in AL. Droid Does (and so Does Verizon).

    Speed Test with DSL internet with AT&T(Bellsouth). Horrible.

    As CellKraze said, its owned by Tracfone, which is America Movil.

    Its a Verizon MVNO.

    Same as PagePlus.
