The offer is being hyped with a big banner on Straight Talk's home page. In typical TracFone fashion, all the site says is "New special offer! Now get 5GB of high speed data. BYOP only. After 5GB, your service continues at a lower speed.". That's it, there's no information about wether the offer is for a limited time only or whether current BYOP users get to keep the 5 GB if and when the promotion ends.
Straight Talk supports BYOP for phones compatible with the T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint networks with the usual MVNO restrictions:
- Unlocked GSM phones can be activated by Straight Talk on the user's choice of AT&T or T-Mobile.
- Verizon and Sprint phones and locked AT&T and T-Mobile phones can only be activated on their respective networks.
The 5 GB offer seems to be available to both new and current Straight Talk BYOP customers. A current Straight talk BYOP customer posted on HowardForums that their online account page now shows 5 GB for BYOP as their current plan.
