    Straight Talk to Offer Unlimited LTE 4G Data, Talk and Messaging On AT&T @ $45/month

    Straight Talk announced today that they will be launching unlimited LTE 4G service on the AT&T network for $45/month. Straight Talk's first LTE phone will be a version of the dual-core LG Optimus 2X.

    This is the first prepaid LTE service in the US and the Optimus LG 2X will be Straight Talk's first Android phone to use the AT&T network. No word on the phone price or when it will be available. But you can sign up to to be notified of availability at reserve.straighttalkandroid.com

    This is a very big deal for two reasons, the network and the phone.

    (I think when Sprint came out with unlimited WiMax plans they limited other data.)

    Dam, deleate the thread, nothing to see here, move on! LOL. He updated the post (read the hofo ST forum):

    Update: After extensive research, it has been confirmed that the model offered is not an LTE enabled version of the Optimus 2X as is being advertised by Straight Talk, rather it is in fact an unbranded version of the US G2X that will be sold by the provider with Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 pre-loaded along with a new series of T-Mobile SIM card that will allow access to the carrier’s HSPA+ network for the phone, with no possibility of swapping current SIMs used on other GSM smartphones such as the E71 and E5 since they only work with AT&T.

    I was about to say that's a good deal but if it's not lte. Maybe lte prepaid will become reality eventually.
    The wife says I have too many phones. Shes probably right.

    Straight Talk's website said LTE, it's a lie. Can't believe they are that stupid and careless, and yet it still says:

    "4G LTE Mobile Broadband
    Browse at amazing speeds on our fastest network ever."

    On their site.

    I never was a big fan of America Movil.

    The whole thing is confusing, they may be rolling out their own Lte, if so that may be what all the storm is about.

    At this point I'm moving on, the point of the thread was that Prepay was using high end Android phones on ATT's spankin new Lte network!

    Says 4G LTE up top. Don't know for sure now.

    Edit: Android 4G LTE looks like sprint's coverage map.

    It does say " 4G Lte mobile broadband" and it accepted my zip, so is this the trick of the century or what?

    I may be confused...no sleep for me last night.

    Yeah we know it says that, but the phone simply doesn't support it. Just look up the FCC ID for it.

    The Optimus 2x will have exactly same hardware as G2x (P999).
    The hardware will NOT have LTE and it will run on T-Mobile HSPA 14.4.
