So then does this mean I will be able to flash my Verizon iPhone 4s over to StraightTalk?
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 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.
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.
Same as the OP posted, but here it the link to Walmart's press release:
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.

nope!! you still cannot activate a verizon phone that is not in their database
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?
Does it have Visual Voicemail? ST's Twitter claims VVM wouldn't be supported...
<-- "Cancelled call" = Failed call. Drops along my commute between Forsyth, MO and Ozark, MO. Can't maintain a call for longer than 10 minutes, if that. Never less than 3 bars/dots coverage!
