I thought I was getting an AT&T version also. Mine turned out to be using T-Mobile towers.
Here is a link on how to tell which towers it will be using:

angie, unfortunately, it's GSM and on AT&T. It's definitely NOT on Verizon as it has GSM printed right on the box and you can see its model number is "H883G" where the "G" at the end denotes GSM.

Question

Can u transfer contact list saved from icloud to this phone via computer?

I actually have 2 questions the first is that I activated this phone over 4 hours ago and still do not have a phone talked to Straighttalk and they said number transferred but could take 24 hours to activate the phone never had this issue before. I noticed there is a place for a sd card does one have to be in the phone for it to work? Number 2 question is can i transfer all of my backup from my iphone off my computer onto this phone?

I had the same problem two weeks ago when I got my new phone. I went well over 12 hours waiting even though I had confirmation that mine too was active. I finally had an idea to remove the battery and then put it back in. As soon as I turned it back on I had service. I probably had it all along but who knew it would be something this simple. The SD card is simply to use as extra storage like music and photos. So no you don't have to have that in first.
Sorry I can't answer your last question. I am manually adding all my info by hand. Some things will link so you will have some info on your contacts from facebook and your contacts from your emails. But as far as I can tell you have to add the rest yourself. I haven't tried the cloud with this phone. Good Luck

It does have internet service so, I am sure you can also connect it to your computer and transfer contacts. It does take awhile to get it activated, but you can spend that time charging it. the number is to StraightTalk, if you have problems or questions there is a 1-800 number in the small green book, or your StraightTalk contract/receipt for assistance. The little green book is very helpful. The sd card and the sim card are already in the phone. Your serial number and your sim card number are on the front of the little red activation card.

Yes. My wife was scared of it but within hours was happily chatting, texting, browsing, putting together schedules and grocery lists. There are also great tutorials on the Windows Phones website.

The phone does have a built in "Help and Tips" app that links you to Windows Phones website. There you can watch how to videos. Coming from an Android device, and using Android for the last 4 years it took me about a week to get the hang of the Windows OS.

All Windows phones are supposed to receive the 8.1 update. It is up to the carrier as to when they will update their phones. Most should see the update before the end of summer
