    So then does this mean I will be able to flash my Verizon iPhone 4s over to StraightTalk?

    Could you please come back and report how reliable data is and what kind of speedtest result you are getting with Verizon 3G.

    Maybe ST will be a bit more liberal with its data hammer if its 3G.

    Unlimited 4G LTE for 45.00 a month doesn't seem realistic.

    I left Sprint last May with $170.00/mo for two lines and now paying 1/2 of that with faster speeds than WIMAX 4G. I'm not going back with Sprint, 3G in Hawaii, you might as well go dial up. (LOL)

    That's going to vary by location.
    3G with an iPhone 4s on Page Plus was getting me just under 1Mbps on average. Some days were better/worse than others.

    I think the whole iphone thing is overblown. How many ST customers are actually gonna pay $650 for an iphone even if it is on Verizon. I know I won't. The price for iphones never changes.

    The price of Android phones is gonna drop like a rock. Faster, cheaper models are coming out all the time. I predict the phones themselves will become a commodity in the next year or two as LTE becomes widespread.

    Location is Irvine, CA. Data service has been reliable so far. Just the same as Verizon. Downlink and uplink speeds are terrible here at this location.

    Pretty much the same speedtest numbers for Verizon iPhone 4S and Straight Talk iPhone 5...Ping 80 ms, Down 565 kbps, Up 591 kbps.

    You are basically getting Verizon speeds.

    The ST mockup has a RED network map, which means Verizon yeah?

    The speeds will get better over time as most contract subs move to LTE, and will probably sustain 1.2mbps or over in most areas.

    The big question is: is there roaming? Roaming only on LTEiRA partners (on 3G of course)? The big issue with their current Verizon offerings is a half-baked network because of no roaming, where the AT&T ST SIMs do have roaming.
    I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
    The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
    Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
    The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
    I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
    If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.

    Does it have a sim slot (like other VZW 5's do)? If so, any idea if it's unlocked?

    Yes, same iPhone 5 so there is a sim slot. The phone is GSM unlocked. A Verizon sim card will get you LTE with Verizon service. T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon have been tested.

    That's great news! I think I've got an iP5 in my near future. I get excellent AT&T HSPA+ coverage in my area so this would be perfect.

    Basically, it sounds as though this is simply the same VZW iP5 that's currently available directly from Apple and VZW. The only difference would be the interest free purchase deal from Walmart, which is very attractive. Is it already provisioned for VVM and MMS out of the box? Were you able to test VVM and MMS with AT&T and TMo sims?

    ST is rumored to be about to offer BYO-Verizon Phone sometime soon.

    It's official straight talk iphone on 1/11/13

    Does it have Visual Voicemail? ST's Twitter claims VVM wouldn't be supported...
