prepaid phone collector and online sleuth The_Sweeper found some evidence that the iPhone 5C and 5S are coming to Straight Talk sometime in the future. He found references to the two latest iPhones on the Straight Talk Activate Your Service page as shown in the image. To see it for yourself:
- Go to http://www.straighttalk.com and click ACTIVATE/REACTIVATE in top menu.
- Then click Activate my Activate my Straight Talk Service, then Continue.
- On the next page click HELP next to the Serial Number/IMEI/MEID/DEC field.
- Under Choose by Style, click bar and you should the placeholder images and labels for the iPhone 5S and 5C
At this point I have no idea when, if ever, Straight talk's iPhone 5S and 5C will be released, what they will cost or which operator's network they will run on. Current Straight Talk iPhones run on Verizon and were priced at full retail when releases. That would mean $549.99 for the 16GB 5C and $649.99 for the 5S.
Before you get too excited you should know that new phones often appear on the StraightTalk activate phone page weeks or even months before they are released. Sometimes phones that appear there are never released.
