Looks in the Straight Talk website a coverage map of Verizon Network, but we are uncertain about if the models are CDMA and/or GSM.

Straight Talk is a GSM carrier (they use SIM cards) and as such it is unlikely that you could transfer your number over. One way to be sure is to ask either or both carriers. Call them.

Question

AGAIN: Is this phone sold unlocked.

It doesn't matter what carrier, country. If I place a SIM card that is not from StraightTalk will the phone say it's locked to StraightTalk or will any GSM SIM card work?

Forget about the LTE question!

You cannot use this phone outside the U.S. You cannot use a SIM card. It is locked. Straight Talk won't unlock it even though you pay full price. Get the unlocked phone from Apple directly. You will pay the same.

answer 3
YES it's unlocked. Any time you see that full price, it's unlocked. Phones are only sold locked when they are carrier subsidized. In other words, when AT&T gives you the phone for $199.00 with a two year contract, it's locked because they need you to stay on their network so they make their money back for giving you the phone for cheap.

Keep it on wifi for video and audio streaming, downloading files and up dating iTunes. Other wise you can do all the email, texting and FB your heart desires.

answer 2
Data is limited! Straight Talk's Terms of Service prohibit streaming of any kind. This includes music (Pandora etc.) and video (Netflix, YouTube etc.). You need to be connected to WiFi for those services. Web browsing is usually fine. Heavy usage over 100MB per day or 2GB per month can get you throttled or your service terminated.

For the average users (not data hogs), this is more than adequate.

you will be fine for email, texting, emails, fb, pics (not going overboard). 2gb is more than enough for the average user.

I believe it's locked. However, the SIM card slot may be unlocked. If it is, it would work on a GSM carrier (T-Mobile, AT&T etc.). If you want a truly unlocked iPhone 5, buy direct from Apple for the same price.

The other answer regarding the service is correct but regarding the logos etc that is wrong. This phone is a unlocked CDMA iPhone 5 direct from apple. Attached to the apple box is a sticker with a pamphlet inside regarding how to activate it. There are no bloat ware or physical branding on the exterior of the phone. The service is very fast and snappy. But as stated before going over 100 Megs a day or 2GB a month can affect service. YouTube or streaming videos will do this easily but pandora usues hardly any data if you monitor it. Source: I own this phone and got it 2 days ago. When you call a phone with caller ID it rings Verizon wireless.

It's Straight Talk service and it has the Tracfone tribal logo. Straight Talk Iphone 5's are full price and they are the real deal.

Now, what this groundbreaking about this prepaid Apple/Straight Talk combination is, your activities will still be limited by Straight Talk Terms of Service. You won't be able to use their I5 as a Hot Spot nor exceed data transfer that could be considered not for personal use. For $45 / mo you get a lot of data usage (100MB daily, 2GB 30days). And the average subscriber will not feel throttled, if they understand the Terms of Service prohibits streaming content.

Straight Talk's Iphone 5 offers WiFi connectivity so wherever you can use a Hot Spot do so, then you'll be free from Straight Talk's Terms of Service for streaming.
