Question

Does straight talk have there own phone towers or do they get there signal from verizon towers

answer 1
Straight Talk is a re-seller of the carrier signal provided by other carriers. Different phones work with different carrier's towers.

StraightTalk contracts from the other cellphone providers. ST also sells by zip code so they know what towers are in your area. At Walmart if you look at the bottom left corner of the box you will see a letter code.

CDMA-V = Verizon
GSM = ATT
CDMA-S = Sprint

I believe they added a few others like T-mobile but I'm not sure of that code yet. Probably CDMA-T.

You can go to Walmart and they might have all one carrier code. Go to the next Walmart 30 miles away and they have a different code or two. So make sure you buy one in your area.

If you buy a phone off the ST website the phones with the red map beside them are Verizon. Many times the website offers a free refurbished phone with the purchase of a card. Offers change every month. I kept watching and eventually got a free refurbished Samsung Proclaim.

Almost every CDMA phone now can be transferred to ST and put on the Verizon network if you want to buy somewhere like ebay. But all outside phones are put on the $45 plan regardless if they are a basic phone or smart phone. I hope that helps!

CDMA stands for Code Division Multiple Access and is a competing cell phone technology to GSM. In the United States, Verizon and Sprint use CDMA where AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM.

It says on the kit that it will not work with iPhones and you will for sure lose your LTE (if you have it now).

To confirm one way or the other, it's best to go to the BYOP website and check to see if your phone is compatible or not. You can navigate through the process and if it is compatible, BYOP will give you further instructions on how to activate and pay for service.

No, this probably will not work as this is a CDMA kit and your phone is GSM. You can probably use a Straight Talk SIM card so the phone will still operate using the AT&T network only using Straight Talk as the provider.

Best to go to the BYOP website and navigate through the process to see for sure if your phone is compatible. BYOP will then give you instructions on what SIM card to purchase and how to activate service.

No. Your HTC inspire 4g is a GSM network phone. ie. AT&T or TMobile.
CDMA network phones run on Verizon.

If your looking to bring an HTC Inspire 4g to straight talk, you will need a simm card.

There is really no accurate way of knowing unless you call Straight Talk. You can try testing the compatibility at straighttalkbyop.com but that is not always accurate. It told me that my Samsung Galaxy S3 would be compatible in my zip code, but I was misinformed. I would suggest calling Straight Talk directly or not buying this product whatsoever

It's almost impossible for us to give you a definite yes or no here as to whether your phone is compatible with Straight Talk CDMA service. More details are needed about the phone and the network it has used.

The best way to go about confirming if your phone will work is to go to the Straight Talk BYOP website and follow through by putting your phone's information and navigating through the process. If your phone turns out to be compatible, it will then give you step-by-step instructions on how to active and start service.

If you have problems navigating the BYOP webpage, you can always call Straight Talk and ask them directly. Call 877-430-2355

Keith, it's difficult to say for sure here as there are too many variables that are unanswered. It's best to go to the BYOP website and navigate through the process to determine if your phone is compatible or not. If it's unlocked, I imagine it is compatible but BYOP can answer all your questions either online or by the phone number they provide.
