The Straight Talk Apple iPhone 5S 16GB Prepaid Smartphone is a cell phone using minutes and data that are paid for in advance. Prepaid phones allow you to pay up front rather than receiving a bill at the end of the month. With prepaid mobile phones, there are no commitments, no overage fees, no activation fees, no cancellation fees, and no contracts!

What you need to get started:
1. Straight Talk prepaid phone
2. Straight Talk service plan (shop here)
3. Activate your phone by following the instructions included in the box or by calling 1.877.430.2355
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I don't know why TD, it's actually a good price for a brand new 5S.
However for this price you get an android phone that is more recent with better specs and more usable than this hunk of metal. But if you are the type who needs iPhone to function day to day life, perhaps it's too much to press more than 1 button on the phone, and if Android is too "confusing" for you or if you need to show off owning an Apple device, this is actually a great price. TU the price TD the product.

No need to unlock, it is AT&T device.
ST's GSM devices are either T-Mobile or AT&T, but according to
http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2...aight.html
All 5S models are AT&T devices.


Also, I double checked.

If you are buying the phone in a store look for the product number on the box under the barcode. If it ends in P4, R4 or P4P, like TFLG800GTMP4P it's AT&T.

This phone is STAPi5sG16SVP4

In that case, this is a pretty good deal

This will NOT work on At&t (or certainly T-Mo, Metro, etc) without unlocking. ST locks these down tight and they will only work with them. Supposed unlock wait is 12 months.

I bought a refurbished one back in November. It was already unlocked. The new ones might be a different story though.

Is that new? I thought the devices were same as AT&T or T-Mobile (depending on the service you use) I was not aware they put an additional ST lock on them.

I am sorry for the wrong information I provided earlier.

So you can buy a locked phone from AT&T or T-Mobile and use it on ST
But you cannot buy a phone from ST and use it on AT&T?.. If this is true, thanks for the info.

See above before buying, looks like they might be locked after all..

I still hope someone can buy and check it out.

It's the same kind/type of lock that Cricket (Att mvno) uses on their phones, but their wait time to unlock is 6 months. And yes, one can use a Att branded phone on Cricket without unlocking, but not Cricket on Att.

Did you buy from WalMart or direct from Straight Talk? And what carrier did you use? Thanks

from Walmart. I had no problem using it on T-Mobile or overseas on a different GSM network.

I've bought both new and refurb 5S from walmart.com for Straight Talk. Both worked on T-Mobile without modification. Most recently in November. I might buy another. Got another kid hounding me for a phone Frown.

Great price but 16GB is barely enough to store anything. Add $100 more for a 64GB and now we're talking.
