Yes and no. It is Straight Talk this particular model use the AT&T towers. Straight Talks can use AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile:
Check the boxes (bottom left corner) they tell you which network you will be on:
GSM-A > AT&T
CDMA-V > Verizon
CDMA-S > Sprint
The phone models have a hint in them too, like Samsung Galaxy Discover S730G < the “G” meaning GSM. If buying online don't expect the Straight Talk help line to explain which phone is which carrier, my experience they are clueless. Just do a little googling on user forums. Bottom line you can order online if it is not on your preferred carrier Walmart is fantastic about returns. Opened or not you can return within 15 days.

The activation card is to activated the phone itself. To use it (talk text moblie) you have to buy a service card.
The activation card included with the phone is simply contains the serial number you will need to activate the phone and instructions on programming your new phone. You will still need to purchase a $45 or $60 green service pin card. I hope this helps. :)
What is referred to as an "activation card" is an informational card that gives the instructions on how to activate the phone along with all the identifying numbers which correspond to the phone that are needed for activation.
You may be referring to a "service card" or Straight Talk "plan" that is what provides the actual service. That you have to pay for separately and is NOT included with the phone. You are required to purchase at or before activation, a $45 unlimited plan (or $60 International plan) or multiples.
(ST refurbished phones sold by Walmart do come with a free 30-day service plan, however. Brand new phones like this one do not.)
