    Question How is Straight Talk Coverage in Denver, Colorado

    I'm in Denver, Colorado, and I'm looking at switching from Verizon to Straight Talk and buying their iPhone 5( full cost ). However, I cannot get their coverage map tool to work in Firefox or IE. Can anyone who uses the Straight Talk iPhone in Denver chime in on their experience as far as data connectivity and texting goes?

    I rarely make or take calls, so the majority of my usage is data and texting. Thanks in advance!

    I'm using ST AT&T in the Denver area and it works really well. Receive HSPA+ service a majority of the time.

    I just came back from business in Colorado Springs and then Denver. I also have the ST iphone 5. Coverage was good throughout the trip. No issues with data and SMS.

    If you're buying a Straight Talk iPhone 5, it'll be the same coverage as Verizon's native coverage (as in, not including any extended network coverage.)

    If you're buying the SIM and getting an unlocked phone, then you're using either AT&T's or T-Mobile's network plus some roaming.
    Internet at work and with a Nexus 4 on Straight Talk with AT&T.

    You coverage will be exactly the same, however, you should never see anything better than 3G as that is all ST customers can use.

    If you read my post, that is what I tried but the coverage map didn't change. It was completely red no matter what local zip code I put into it. Plus my trust level for what a company says it product does and what my actual experience will be is pretty low.

    Thank you for the feedback. Are you from the West Coast? I travel there pretty frequently so knowing that the phone performs well there would be a plus.

    I can do it either way, though the price of an unlocked phone vs locked will probably push me towards buying a locked phone.

    I actually never see anything faster than 3G currently with Verizon. I left out that I have a locked iPhone 4S on Verizon now, which may explain why. Otherwise, it could be because VZ hasn't implemented 4G in Denver yet.


    Additional information:
    I have a locked iPhone 4S on Verizon
    My 2 yr contract w/VZ is up on Nov 1, 2013.
    I'm looking a getting the iPhone 5 for 2 reasons:
    1. It supports 5Ghz 802.11n ( There are 30+ 2.4Ghz WiFi LAN's in my area, there is so much noise I cannot WiFi sync at 2.4Ghz )
    2. I can't bring the VZ phone onto a competitor's network.
