Straight Talk appears to have started allowing Verizon LTE phones to be activated. A HowardForums user tried entering the IMEI serial number of a Verizon Galaxy S5 on Straight Talk's Bring Your Own Phone page and was greeted by a screen that let him request a SIM. Straight Talk customer service representatives have also confirmed that Verizon LTE phones can now be activated using Straight Talk CDMA BYOP program.
There's no extra charge for the LTE SIMs which are included in the $6.99 price of the Network Access Code needed to process the activation. The Straight Talk site does warn that it will take 7 to 10 business days for SIMs to arrive during the holiday season.
The usual Verizon MVNO restrictions apply: no bad-ESN phones (financed or reported lost or stolen), no Verizon Prepaid phones, no non-Verizon phones, no phones currently active on Verizon or a Verizon MVNO.
I also expect that CDMA BYOP LTE speeds will be throttled to 5 Mbps down, 2 Mbps up, just as they are with Straight Talk's own Verizon LTE based phone, the ZTE Rapido.
If you can live with the throttled speeds, StraightTalk gives you the most data for the money of any Verizon based prepaid option. $45/month for 3GB of high speed data along with unlimited talk and text and unlimited data throttled to 64Kbps after the 3GB is used. In comparison, Verizon Prepaid's $45 unlimited talk and text plan only includes 500 MB (1 GB with auto pay or a SIM from Walmart) for $45. PagePlus charges $55 for essentially the same plan as Straight Talk's although PagePlus' data is hard-capped at 3GB and doesn't include the nearly usless unlimited throttled data that Stright Talk does.
Here's the page the HowardForums user saw after entering a Verizon LTE phone's IMEI. Note the checkbox for requesting a SIM.
