I need to check this out. I think I think my husband and I are the only two people we know that still only have basic phones.

Well, as I predicted, Apple must be running scared to sell their precious iPhone in WalMart. Next thing, Net10 and TRACPhone will be hawking them too. Go figure.

iPhone 5 takes nano sim and to my knowledge, Straight Talk has not offered a nano sim.

Will you still have to jailbreak these to get MMS to work is the question. Might be better off going to ebay and scoring an iphone 4 for $200 dollars less if thats the case.

Walmart begins direct i Phone 5 sales means we can expect naturally a very good price reduction for the products

In addition to the $45 no contract plan, Straight Talk also has a $60 option that adds unlimited international calling to more than 1,000 areas in Mexico, Canada, India and other countries.

Interestingly there are some rumors coming from Asia that Apple will be coming out with a low cost "economy" iPhone. It would be really interesting if rather than 3rd world being the target for those phones, the real target is Walmart.

The cost of the iphone is stated in the first sentence in the article:
While the $45 flat rate pricing is enticing, Walmart's handset selection will be limited to the 16GB iPhone 5 and 8GB iPhone 4, which are priced at $649 and $449, respectively.

I ran into a friend who works that department @ Walmart. In order to do this you must buy the phone & pay the monthly via Walmart's credit card.

That 's interesting. Thanks for the info. Is that a Walmart branded Visa card? Or their store card?

Didn't get into details...I had ice cream in my cart! The Walmart credit card details are on their site...looks like they have their own - extends to Sams Club, and a Walmart Discover® to be used where accepted.

I agree. There needs to be more price competition among cell phone carriers. This helps get that to reality.

Very interesting. Even a company the size of Apple would need a big merchant to disrupt the cell phone industry.
