Now through April 2, 2013, Walmart is offering credit-worthy customers no-interest financing on the iPhone 4 and the 16 GB iPhone 5. Terms are $25 per month for 18 months for the iPhone 4 (total payment $450) or $25 per month for 26 months for the iPhone 5 (total payment $650). The financing offer is only available in Walmart stores, not online.
The iPhones can be used with either Straight Talk's $45/month Unlimited Nationwide Talk, Text, and Data plan or the $60 Unlimited Talk, Text, and International Calling plan.
Although data on Straight Talk plans is advertised as unlimited, the carrier's terms of service prohibit tethering and video and audio streaming. There also seems to be an undisclosed usage cap about 100 MB/day 2 GB/month, users exceeding those limits have reported that their speeds were severely throttled or they received calls from Straight Talk warning that their usage was excessive.
Contrary to my earlier speculation, all the Straight Talk iPhones appear to use the Verizon network. I haven't seen any creditable reports of an official Straight Talk iPhone running on any network but Verizon. Plus, when I use Walmart's "Check to see if it works in your area before you buy" feature with an AT&T only zip code like 65046 or a Sprint only zip like 54235, I get a warning that the phone will not work in that zip code.
The Straight Talk iPhone seems to be a Walmart exclusive at the moment. It's not available on the straighttalk.com website and the www.straighttalk.com/iphone URL listed in the press release
Update: www.straighttalk.com/iphone now loads a promotional page about the Straight Talk iPhones. The Buy Now buttons on that page take you to the iPhone sales pages on walmart.com.
Straight Talk is a mobile virtual network operator owned by Mexico's América Móvil, the 4th largest mobile operator in the world. America Movil runs its own networks in 15 countries but in the US it functions as a virtual operator reselling service from all four US national mobile operators.
