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.

I had trouble receiving picture txts from my wife's iphone 5s. Enabling cellular data on the iphone fixed the problem. I've read about people having to call customer service a couple times to get someone that knows how to get it working if it is a problem with how your Straight Talk account is set up.
