I was thinking about going with Strait Talk, but was wondering if the Strait Talk iPhone 5 was unlocked or not?
Apple has not stated yet. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1937
Is he iPhone available via StraightTalk yet?
According to several reports posted here, no. They are not unlocked. They use the Verizon CDMA network.
They are just like the Verizon iPhone 5 - the SIM slot is unlocked.
