    I called one of my local Walmarts today. Just a few minutes ago. They have them in stock right now. I asked which towers they used. The guy wasnt sure. He said he thought Verizon. But of course he didnt know for sure. Hopefully someone will pick one up so we can find out!

    Ask what the model number is. Model A1428 is AT&T
    Model A1429 is Verizon/Sprint

    At the risk of getting off tangent, I'm not sure what you are saying.

    I agree that native VZ is better than Cricket, but Cricket does offer the iPhone and Cricket is not a Sprint MVNO.

    Not good at all folks. I see this as only a 3G device on this service

    Not to mention SLOW 3G. Verizon has better coverage, but their 3G service sucks. I stood side by side with an iPhone on Verizon and mine on AT&T (ST) today. The Verizon was 900Kbps down, 342Kbps up. Mine was 3.06Mbps down, 1.16Mbps up. Three times as fast. BUT, the Verizon gets 4 bars to my 1 bar, which means deep inside the building he will get a signal but I won't. AT&T has fast data, but coverage not as good.

    hhmmm, makes sense since both network does not have pseudo 4G. Unlike AT&T with HSPA and T-MO HSPA+.

    Well well looks like CNET lied to me as did PCmag. If its Verizon then at least the 3G will be faster than Sprint god-awlful slower than a snail 3G speeds.

    Going to give this a lot of thought now but just made the switch from Sprint to US Cellular 10 days ago...

    My guess would be Sprint since they're cheaper.

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

    Can confirm that the Straight Talk iPhone 5 is Verizon with 3G service. Model A1429. Carrier name on upper left is TFW.

    I just activated one to test.
