However, even if you can make it work, it is against the Terms and Conditions you agree to when you register and activate your Straight Talk phone as all ST smartphones are not allowed to be tethered nor used as mifi devices. Therefore, if detected, they can terminate your service.

You need to check the coverage map, which is provided via a link at the Straight Talk web site.

I just looked at both the AT&T coverage map and the Verizon coverage map for Berea and both have excellent coverage. Not enough of a difference to make a big difference IMO.

"Coverage" mainly is important pertaining to where YOU will use the phone. You can check the Verizon coverage by going to their interactive coverage map and putting in the addresses where you use the phone or want to use the phone and you can hone in and see how good the approximate coverage may be.

If you plan to travel a lot, most people think that Verizon has better coverage especially out in the western part of the country. But again, some places AT&T will have coverage where Verizon will not and vise versa.

Here is the Verizon coverage map (copy-and-paste):

http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/support/coverage-locator

Look only at "Prepaid" for voice coverage and "Data Coverage" for 3G data. You will not be able to receive 4G LTE with Straight Talk phones on Verizon so disregard the 4G LTE coverage.

Google play store by default displays only apps that are compatible with your device, unless you manually change it. Suffice to say nearly all android apps will work on it.

I'm thinking the easiest way to see the apps available is to go to the Google Play website as there are hundreds of thousands of apps available and the list would be horrendous. At the Google Play website, at least you can view categories and use the search function for specific apps.
