    Local Walmart had Straight Talk iPhone 6s for $97. Can it work with Tracfone/VZW SIM?

    Walmart's website shows $149 for the Straight Talk iPhone 6s,
    but I saw it at my local Walmart this morning with a clearance
    price of $97. There were only 2 left.


    I could not resist that price, so I bought them both. I just want
    to make sure that they'll work with my existing Tracfone/Verizon
    SIM card before opening the sealed boxes. (this SIM card has
    been used in my old Verizon iPhone SE for several months now)

    Thanks!

    SIM swap for sure will work.

    Probably they will rebrand it for direct activation as well. I know they will for the SE.

    Wow. $97 for a ST 6S is a really good deal! What color did you get?

    I just checked Brickseek, and the gray ST 6S is still $149.99 at all Walmarts anywhere near me.

    Checked a few zips from biggest cities somewhat near me.

    too bad rose gold wasn't available in my store... but then again, for $97, I don't care what color it is.

    I bought one a little over a year ago when they were $199.00

    I sim swapped and it has worked fine

    The only thing I'm worried about now is VoLTE, hope Tracfone does some kind of mass turn on soon as of now it still won't do VoLTE.

    Don’t know what I'll have to do to get it to work some day

    I'll keep checking for a price drop on the ST iPhone 6S and I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    I had been watching some 5000mAh power banks that had dropped to $5 at Walmart. I checked in the morning before I went to Walmart and they were still $5. I got to the Walmart and was having a hard time finding them, so I checked Brickseek again, and they had dropped to $2.50! So I kept looking, and finally found the 3 that Brickseek showed in stock.

    $2.50 seems to be the current price if they have any remaining in stock.

    Yeah. $7.50 ($2.50x3) for three 5000mAh power banks was a great deal and I was happy to get them at that price!
