I've read some old forum posts about this, but I just wanted to make sure nothing has changed too drastically since then.
My goal is to buy an iPhone 4s from Verizon and use it on Straight Talk. From what I've gathered so far, I'll need to unlock the phone, pop in an AT&T sim card, and activate the phone on ST. Is this essentially all there is to it, or am I missing something? I've also seen something about having to trim certain SIM cards down to fit. Will this be required for the 4S?
Thanks for any help!
I see. What about the iphone 5 then? I saw that it's possible on that and just assumed the 4s would work too. Do i have the right idea for the 5?
The Verizon iPhone 5 comes GSM unlocked, so yes that would work.

are you sure you want a verizon phone for a network straight talk appears to be removing...att Sims.
straight talk has a line of verizon phones for their network
I know ST sells them, but I can get it much cheaper from Verizon on the discounted price.
I know ST isn't selling AT&T cards anymore, but you can still get them on eBay. They're not discontinuing the service for them, are they?
something to consider when making an investment.
A Verizon iPhone 4s can be activated/used on the byop cdma st program, no need to use a sim card.
did you activate a 4s on the new program?
