www.straighttalkbyop.com went back online this evening,
The only CDMA phones that the site says aren't permitted are "4G LTE technology phones, iPhones, Blackberries or branded Straight Talk, TracFone, Safe Link, NET10 Wireless, and Telcel America phones.".
As reported yesterday, a WalMart leak suggests that the Straight Talk CDMA BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) program is about to resume. Initially launched in April and cancelled after a week, the CDMA BYOP option let you buy a $15 code that allowed activation of most Verizon phones on Straight Talk's $45/month unlimited, voice messaging and data plan. StraightTalk's sister brands NET10 and Telcel America, also launched and immediately canceled CDMA BYOD programs in April.
A HowardForums user discovered a page on the WalMart site listing a "Straight Talk Bring Your Own Phone CDMA Activation Kit Plus Service Plan" that includes a "Network Address Code" and a $45 Straight Talk Unlimited Plan PIN. The webpage says that the kit is only available in stores, not online.
I haven't heard any reports of the kits actually showing up in stores yet but another HowardForum's post, presumably by a WalMart employee, includes a photo (below) of pre-printed $59.88 price stickers for kit. The ST64PBYOPVZSV code on the sticker matches the "Model No." shown on the Walmart online listing. The stickers call it the kit a "SIM" but it seems unlikely that there's actually a SIM included as only Verizon LTE phone's use SIMs and the Walmart site says the program is not compatible with LTE phones.
Also not allowed on BYOD program are phones from "CDMA carriers Sprint or Metro PCS, 4G LTE devices, iPhones, BlackBerry, data only devices, lost or stolen devices, branded TracFone, SafeLink, NET10, Straight Talk or Telcel America handsets." This is a change from the original Straight Talk CDMA BYOD program which did allow the activation of the Verizon iPhone 4 and 4S. I suspect the program was modified to exclude iPhones at Verizon's request.
