    Straight talk on activated Verizon Iphone 5??

    I know the iphone 5 comes unlocked to be used on any carrier.

    My question is can it still be used on a GSM network like Straight talk or AT&T after the hone has been activated with Verizon already??

    I saw a video where ATT simcard was used on verizon iphone 5 and it worked perfectly. No reason why you cannot use the straightalk sim on Verizon iphone 5. But to cut the micro sim to nano sim you will have to be careful. I read someone had already accomplished that without any cutter or anything on hofo.

    But on the side note Sprints Iphone 4s was unlocked for i guess 2 months before they pushed an update for locking it. Not sure if verizon is gonna do that.

    Thats what I have heard...

    Do you know if you can use Straight talk or AT&T AFTER the phone has been activated on Verizon? Can I just cancel and put in a GSM sim?? Or after its been activated is it locked to CDMA?

    Check out this piece of news. It seems verizon confirms that the Verizon Iphone 5 will be unlocked even for competitors like ATT and T-mobile.

    As for the activation part you should be able to use the phone even after activation if its unlocked. You already have a verizon iphone 5 or are you planning to get one? If you already do have it just pop a sim and check it.
