    Verizon Phones on Straight Talk? Straight Talk phones on Verizon?

    Hope someone can help with a few questions.

    I see they byod with SIM but what about non-SIM Verizon phones?

    Do Straight Talk phones like the Samsung Precedent work on Verizon prepaid?

    I am looking for a small Android to use with Straight Talk preferably on the Verizon network. I thought the Optimus Q was a little big for my tastes as well as the Proclaim - Illusion.

    I brought a Precedent for my kid which is a nice phone but it is on Sprint network and need something on the VZ network. I also want something with an updated OS, more memory and better CPU than the Precedent.

    Worst case I thought I could to settle for the Precedent and if Sprint ST does not work out I could use the Precedent on Verizon prepaid?

    Can't use a Verizon phone on straight talk or vice versa. If you want android on straight talk, either stuck with their androids on sprint or the new proclaim on Verizon.

    Of the phones on that list, the X2 and DInc 2 are the best, and are available relatively cheaply on the used market. If you want a better selection of phones on a VzW MVNO, consider a flashed phone on Page Plus.

    Darn... non-LTE. So much for my wanting the Note II on ST's BYOP as CDMA/Verizon.

    You can get really nice condition X2s on eBay for $30-40.

    Nah, 3G is all I need really. But darn ST's "no LTE Verizon devices" policy heh. Oh well.

    I now have my eye on the Motorola Droid 3 instead.. maybe. That seems to be the best non-LTE Verizon phone you can put on ST BYOP.

    I can't decide if 3GB unthrottled+128kbps unlimited throttled ($45) -or- 5GB cap unthrottled ST hotspot ($50)will be better for my needs. 128kbps is only a bit more than twice what 56k dialup is. *groan*

    Not straight talk policy on 3g it is a Verizon's policy.

    The throttle on the 3gb is also 56k . This is what people are reporting on the $ 45 plan.
