Nice Phone

This phone works great and came in excellent condition


Great phone, fun to use

Same as with my other iphone. Very pleased with the quality of the phone and all of its features. Feels like I'm finally catching up with the latest technology. Stepping up from a flip phone to an iphone is quite an experience. I would recommend it for everyone. Only downside is the frequency of which it needs to be recharged. Moderate to heavy use requires a daily recharge. However I would still purchase it and highly recommend it to anyone my age (in my sixties)


Glad I bought the refurbished iPhone!

The Network: I was really scared that the straight talk network would be awful. I used to have verizon but after some financial problems I couldn't afford the $200 a month price tag. And verizon prepaid wouldn't allow me to use an iPhone 5 on their network - why buy an iPhone if you can't buy a newer model, right? Also, I live in a small town in rural Iowa and the only service provider that works decently out here is verizon. Anyway, I actually get better service with straight talk than verizon, which is odd considering straight talk leases Verizon's towers. I get 3G everywhere and I rarely have less than 3 bars. I've only dropped a call once, in an area my verizon phone always dropped calls as well.\n\nThe Phone: The phone looks and works like new. There was a small scuff on the back, but that could've occurred during shipment. Everything else is like brand new. Definitely worth saving the money. The only issue I've had is that the phone was delayed by a week from shipping. It sounded like the warehouse didn't know if they had it in stock - which is inexcusable in my opinion. A product shouldn't be listed as in stock online unless it's for sure that it's in stock. For those who have owned iPhones before, iPhone 5 isn't a huge difference from iPhone 4. It is noticeably faster and Siri is helpful when you can't type or don't have time. The voice recognition is more reliable than previous iPhones, lg android, and samsung android. I definitely like iOS 7 more than previous iOS versions. I wish apple would allow more customization, but I digress. This phone is awesome, especially when compared to most android prepaid smartphones. Definitely worth it.


Great Buy

I previously had the LG Optimus Q with straight talk and the service was terrible. I loved the phone, but it eventually bit the dust. I decided that I wanted a better phone with better service. I stumbled upon this refurbished iPhone 5 with straight talk and noticed it was a great deal. Long story short...I will never go back to android and I absolutely LOVE my iPhone!\n\nIt looks and works like it was brand new AND I have service everywhere that I have been!


iPhone 5 straight talk is a fabulous service

I was with verizon for two years. I wanted a comparable phone service without paying the price. Straight talk has been great! You have to make sure you get the right phone service for your area .\nI personally needed verizon towers. If you buy iPhone 5c or 5 s you will have AT&T towers. If you need verizon, only the iPhone 5 will work. Straight talk has been great!


Great phone. A little pricey for a refurb phone

Need to lower prices on phones. Still cheaper than a contract phone though.


Great phone

Well I switched from android to iPhone, and am not regretting it. This phone is amazing. Good reception on the verizon towers. Two reasons why I didn't give 5 stars. One is that I had gotten used to swiping while texting and this phone does not do that. Also, although this phone has the capabilities of LTE and 4g, it seems to be limited to 3G. Ugh. Overall, I love this phone. I love that it syncs with my iPad


I hate to say the battery was awful

The phone was arrived faster than I thought, once I checked it was in a great condition. However, for this 6 days I've been using this phone, the battery drains so fast. I hope I can get a warranty about this by Walmart since they say it has 1-year-warranty. I'm just hoping they prove what they say and make them a valuable company.\n\nOther than that, was great.\n\nnote: for Walmart customer service, if you guys please contact me about this and help me solve about my battery problem, that will be awesome :)


Read this review before buying

This has nothing to do with Walmart -- just the Straight Talk service. I read a lot of reviews and was concerned about streaming Netflex. This wasn't a personal issue, just that when a description says unlimited data I want it to mean unlimited data.\n\nOK, I got the iPhone 5 and once I had everything setup, I tested Netflex. I made sure my wifi was turned off. The Netflix connection took a bit longer than normal and once connected the video wasn't quite as crisp as it would be with wifi. But other than that, it did play just fine.\n\nI think any negative reviews I saw on other blogs may have been older reviews or with different phones. I saw where Straight Talk addressed this in a PC Mag. Blog and their response answered my concerns. Hey, the only reason I'd want to watch Netflix on an iPhone is if I'm out shopping with my wife and I want to retreat to the car to watch TV. (That alone justified this purchased!)\n\nNow about the reconditioned iPhone 5. Go for it! Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but reconditioned means it's as good as new -- at least to the end user. Saving $150 is a big deal. Just know that like most carrier specific phones, this is a Straight Talk FOREVER device. This is why I read so many reviews. WALMART --- LISTEN UP. I'm trusting you to stand behind Straight Talk and make sure they stay in business for a very long time.\n\nAlso, see if your bank or credit card has a $600 12 month no interest deal going on. Barclaycard did so this deal is costing me $25 a month for a year with NO CONTRACT!!!!! Straight Talk is $45 + maybe sales tax but none of the long list of taxes and fees that none of us understand.\n\nI've got friends paying over $100 moth and they're stuck on a contract for a couple of years.\n\nI don't work for Walmart or Straight Talk. I've made my living as a designer using Macs for 30 years and never could justify $100+ month for a cell phone. Walmart's reconditioned iPhone 5 deal is too sweet not to enjoy.\n\nThat's my story and I'm sticking to it.


Love the phone, but no 4g with Straight Talk.

I absolutely love this phone. Even though it is refurbished, you can't tell it from a brand new phone. But I expected to get 4g. I was activated on the Verizon network with Straight Talk and there is definitely 4g Verizon towers in my area and other areas where I travel. The only thing I can think of is that the agreement between ST & Verizon doesn't allow 4g for the iphone on ST. Straight Talk should make this known before someone buys their service. I switched from Verizon to ST about a year ago and I think it is a much better value. But I paid a lot for this phone and I want to be able to use it's full capabilities. If I can't get 4g, I will return the phone or see if I can use it on another network. I'm not sure if it is an "unlocked" phone. I would welcome comments from anyone who knows more about how this works.


Great phone

I had a 4th generation Apple iPod touch for a year before I finally decided to buy an iPhone. The phone itself is flawless and exceptionally beautiful. It's easy to use and easy to personalize. As far as Straight Talk, so far the service has been good. No dropped calls whatsoever. The only thing is that sometimes 3G is a little slow, but only in some places. I work in a school so there is always Wifi available and I predominately use wifi at home, too- so I haven't had much use for the data yet. Another issue was the charger that came with the phone. I don't know if it's because the phone is refurbished, but I had an issue with the screen shaking while the phone was being charged. It's not a big issue, it's just hard to scroll. The problem is the charger is not a genuine Apple charger. But that can be easily remedied by buying the aforementioned charger which, for the amount of money you are saving by buying this iPhone from Straight Talk, should be no problem.


It Doesn't Get Better Than This!

Received my "refurbished" iPhone 5 in "like-new" condition cosmetically and functionally! The "Roll Back" price was $444.88 and included a 30 Day Straight Talk card. The Straight Talk card sells for $45, so do the math! The iPhone 5 cost just 399.88 and includes a 1 Year Apple Warranty! Meanwhile, used iPhone 5 models are selling on eBay for $400-500. What?\n\nSet up was quick and easy. In a matter of minutes my iPhone 5 was upgraded to the new IOS 7 operating system (great!) and activated on Straight Talk.\n\nThis is a CDMA phone which uses Verizon's signal. I live in a rural area and had poor reception in the past with AT&T and Sprint. So I was very happy to see 5 bars (dots actually) on the signal strength indicator. The data speed is fast! Voice quality on phone calls is very good.\n\nThe iPhone 5 is nearly identical to the "new" iPhone 5C. The difference being that the 5C has a polycarbonate (plastic body) and is available in a variety of bright colors. The iPhone 5 has the higher grade aluminum and glass body. Which would you choose? A new 5C at $549, or a like-new refurbished iPhone 5 at $399? Both include Apple's 1 Year Warranty.\n\nTo extend my initial 30 day service, I decided to opt for Straight Talk's One Year Service Card which sells for $495. This works out to $41.25 a month, compared to $45 when paid monthly. I should mention that Straight Talk's data service is 3G (not 4G/LTE). However, there is no 4G signal in my area, as currently it is only found in major population centers. My experience with the 3G service so far is very good. It's plenty fast enough for my needs. For $41.25 a month, it is a terrific value, especially compared to Verizon or AT&T at around $90 or more.\n\nKeep in mind that "unlimited data" on Straight Talk will be slowed to EDGE speed (slow!) if you consume a lot of data. Although they don't provide details, it looks like slower speeds begin after 2GB of data are used within a 30 day period. I don't use a large amount of data, about 1GB a month, so this is not an issue for me, but it might be to heavy users.\n\nThe iPhone 5 is a superb device! And Straight Talk works as promised! 5 Stars!!


Great phone / excelente telefono

I got this phone in a box , obviously not the original apple box. when you open it there is another box that contains the phone, cable, headphones and the cube charger in bags , the phone is well wrapped with bubble bag . It came in great condition like new. Definitely recommend this phone. Don't go for the $650 new phone, even if this is refurbished it looks new, feels new and doesn't have any scratches. Also comes with a $45 card to add it for month. If you dont want the Straight Talk service the only thing you got to do is not activate it with straight talk when you get it. Go to whatever company you'd like your phone to be in and thats it :). The service is good so far though, when im home i just use the Wifi to browse the internet, watch videos etc so i turn the cellular data off. The only thing about it that i don't like is that when your on the phone talking with someone, its low so you might want to use headphones or put the speaker on :)


Phone looks and works like brand new

I saved $150.00 over another popular prepay competitor for the phone. Straight talk is $5.00 per month cheaper with $45 for the monthly plan which is a savings of $60 per year, dinner for two paid for.


Love the phone!

I really do love this phone and the service from Straight Talk is very good in the areas they say it will work. I have no complaints about the working condition of the phone. It arrived before the date promised looking like a brand new iPhone 5, only not in the original box. The only reason I gave it less than perfect stars is that I was sure the original listing said the phone had the original Apple warranty of 90 days phone support and 1 year manufacturers warranty. This is not the case as when I contacted Apple to register the product, I was told the purchase date was October of 2013 and could not be changed but that the warranty is still in effect until October 2014. So, I have only a 9 month warranty instead of 12 month. However, I worked for weeks trying to get as good a deal on Ebay and could not find a used iPhone 5 for $400, so I still think this is a very good deal and would recommend it. I have owned the phone for 2 weeks.


iPhone is just Incredible!

The iPhone with Siri is really just an incredibly useful piece of technology. I asked it for the NFL scores yesterday and it just read them off even adding ESPN like verbiage "like soundly defeated" or "in the battle of Ohio". Everything about the phone is incredibly user friendly and I know that I have just scratched the surface of its functionality. Having bought it without a subsidy is surely worth it because of the no-contract deal with Straight Talk. Taking into account the $45 bonus card included, I consider the phone to really have a net cost of ~$400. My only ding on the deal is I still can't believe I paid $400 for a phone, but realistically I'm sure the functionality of the iPhone will pay off and paying only ~$45 a month for unlimited service sure does beat my old contract phones. And I'm sure there are plenty of apps (like cheap gas finders) that will save me extra money over time. Truly great phone and very attractive service price through Straight Talk.

Amazing value for the price.

Like new...can't tell that it's refurbished...straight talk data speed is a little slow.


Awesome phone!

I am very happy I purchased the straighttalk iphone 5 16GB with bonus $45 Unlimited plan, white, Refurbished. It is an awesome phone for a great and resonable price. Coming from a droid phone it is unreal the quality and functionality owning my first iphone is turning out to be..from the quality of sound and reception to the app features, the security of phone from password protection and icloud app, to the quality of the camera and video. Being hearing impaired I am so happy that the sound quality is clear n loud enough to make it somewhat easier to communicate. I would recommend this phone to my friends and anyone who is looking for top quality for a good price, for anyone who wants to experience good things through their phone. The refurbished phone looks and acts brand new, and with a bonus unlimited card in my opinion it is an exceptional value...I mean, hey, its an iphone.


Phone is great! Straight Talk service poor!

The iPhone has wonderful features. The iPhone is always overpriced, but I do enjoy some of the features though. I love the Facetime feature. My previous phone was a Galaxy S2 with Straight Talk and had better cell tower coverage than I have with the iPhone. I guess the iPhone uses Verizon towers and Galaxy S2 uses AT&T. Verizon limits the 3G for the iPhone. The iPhone seems to process at a slower rate than the Galaxy S2. I love the appearance, size, and overall look of the iPhone over my previous phone.


Love my iphone!

This is my first iPhone and I am so glad I bought this phone. I am upgrading from a samsung galaxy proclaim which obviously is a huge difference. I have been with straight talk for about 2 years and the service is not bad for $45 a month. I have had to call tech support a few times with the samsung proclaim and yes it is heavy accented people but they did fix my issues. Ok so back to the iphone. This is refurbished, so when you get it, there's no pretty official iphone box, just a little box with the phone wrapped in bubble wrap with the headphones, wall charger and lighting cable. The serial number and $45 service card is also included. On the box there is a sticker that says "Reconditioned 1 year limited warranty Authorized Service Center". I bought the warranty through walmart which covers more than the limited warranty through apple. My phone has a few barely seen scratches on the back but overall it looks brand new for a refurbished phone. I'm really enjoying the phone and wish I got it sooner. I was able to update to ios 7 with no problems. Calls are crystal clear. This phone uses Verizon. You can't go wrong with an iPhone! :)

Great phone

Well I switched from android to iPhone, and am not regretting it. This phone is amazing. Good reception on the verizon towers. Two reasons why I didn't give 5 stars. One is that I had gotten used to swiping while texting and this phone does not do that. Also, although this phone has the capabilities of LTE and 4g, it seems to be limited to 3G. Ugh. Overall, I love this phone. I love that it syncs with my iPad


Great phone. A little pricey for a refurb phone

Need to lower prices on phones. Still cheaper than a contract phone though.


iPhone 5 straight talk is a fabulous service

I was with verizon for two years. I wanted a comparable phone service without paying the price. Straight talk has been great! You have to make sure you get the right phone service for your area .\nI personally needed verizon towers. If you buy iPhone 5c or 5 s you will have AT&T towers. If you need verizon, only the iPhone 5 will work. Straight talk has been great!


Great Buy

I previously had the LG Optimus Q with straight talk and the service was terrible. I loved the phone, but it eventually bit the dust. I decided that I wanted a better phone with better service. I stumbled upon this refurbished iPhone 5 with straight talk and noticed it was a great deal. Long story short...I will never go back to android and I absolutely LOVE my iPhone!\n\nIt looks and works like it was brand new AND I have service everywhere that I have been!


Glad I bought the refurbished iPhone!

The Network: I was really scared that the straight talk network would be awful. I used to have verizon but after some financial problems I couldn't afford the $200 a month price tag. And verizon prepaid wouldn't allow me to use an iPhone 5 on their network - why buy an iPhone if you can't buy a newer model, right? Also, I live in a small town in rural Iowa and the only service provider that works decently out here is verizon. Anyway, I actually get better service with straight talk than verizon, which is odd considering straight talk leases Verizon's towers. I get 3G everywhere and I rarely have less than 3 bars. I've only dropped a call once, in an area my verizon phone always dropped calls as well.\n\nThe Phone: The phone looks and works like new. There was a small scuff on the back, but that could've occurred during shipment. Everything else is like brand new. Definitely worth saving the money. The only issue I've had is that the phone was delayed by a week from shipping. It sounded like the warehouse didn't know if they had it in stock - which is inexcusable in my opinion. A product shouldn't be listed as in stock online unless it's for sure that it's in stock. For those who have owned iPhones before, iPhone 5 isn't a huge difference from iPhone 4. It is noticeably faster and Siri is helpful when you can't type or don't have time. The voice recognition is more reliable than previous iPhones, lg android, and samsung android. I definitely like iOS 7 more than previous iOS versions. I wish apple would allow more customization, but I digress. This phone is awesome, especially when compared to most android prepaid smartphones. Definitely worth it.


Great phone, fun to use

Same as with my other iphone. Very pleased with the quality of the phone and all of its features. Feels like I'm finally catching up with the latest technology. Stepping up from a flip phone to an iphone is quite an experience. I would recommend it for everyone. Only downside is the frequency of which it needs to be recharged. Moderate to heavy use requires a daily recharge. However I would still purchase it and highly recommend it to anyone my age (in my sixties)


Nice Phone

This phone works great and came in excellent condition


Amazing value for the price.

Like new...can't tell that it's refurbished...straight talk data speed is a little slow.


Awesome phone!

I am very happy I purchased the straighttalk iphone 5 16GB with bonus $45 Unlimited plan, white, Refurbished. It is an awesome phone for a great and resonable price. Coming from a droid phone it is unreal the quality and functionality owning my first iphone is turning out to be..from the quality of sound and reception to the app features, the security of phone from password protection and icloud app, to the quality of the camera and video. Being hearing impaired I am so happy that the sound quality is clear n loud enough to make it somewhat easier to communicate. I would recommend this phone to my friends and anyone who is looking for top quality for a good price, for anyone who wants to experience good things through their phone. The refurbished phone looks and acts brand new, and with a bonus unlimited card in my opinion it is an exceptional value...I mean, hey, its an iphone.


Phone is great! Straight Talk service poor!

The iPhone has wonderful features. The iPhone is always overpriced, but I do enjoy some of the features though. I love the Facetime feature. My previous phone was a Galaxy S2 with Straight Talk and had better cell tower coverage than I have with the iPhone. I guess the iPhone uses Verizon towers and Galaxy S2 uses AT&T. Verizon limits the 3G for the iPhone. The iPhone seems to process at a slower rate than the Galaxy S2. I love the appearance, size, and overall look of the iPhone over my previous phone.


Love my iphone!

This is my first iPhone and I am so glad I bought this phone. I am upgrading from a samsung galaxy proclaim which obviously is a huge difference. I have been with straight talk for about 2 years and the service is not bad for $45 a month. I have had to call tech support a few times with the samsung proclaim and yes it is heavy accented people but they did fix my issues. Ok so back to the iphone. This is refurbished, so when you get it, there's no pretty official iphone box, just a little box with the phone wrapped in bubble wrap with the headphones, wall charger and lighting cable. The serial number and $45 service card is also included. On the box there is a sticker that says "Reconditioned 1 year limited warranty Authorized Service Center". I bought the warranty through walmart which covers more than the limited warranty through apple. My phone has a few barely seen scratches on the back but overall it looks brand new for a refurbished phone. I'm really enjoying the phone and wish I got it sooner. I was able to update to ios 7 with no problems. Calls are crystal clear. This phone uses Verizon. You can't go wrong with an iPhone! :)


iPhone is just Incredible!

The iPhone with Siri is really just an incredibly useful piece of technology. I asked it for the NFL scores yesterday and it just read them off even adding ESPN like verbiage "like soundly defeated" or "in the battle of Ohio". Everything about the phone is incredibly user friendly and I know that I have just scratched the surface of its functionality. Having bought it without a subsidy is surely worth it because of the no-contract deal with Straight Talk. Taking into account the $45 bonus card included, I consider the phone to really have a net cost of ~$400. My only ding on the deal is I still can't believe I paid $400 for a phone, but realistically I'm sure the functionality of the iPhone will pay off and paying only ~$45 a month for unlimited service sure does beat my old contract phones. And I'm sure there are plenty of apps (like cheap gas finders) that will save me extra money over time. Truly great phone and very attractive service price through Straight Talk.


Love the phone!

I really do love this phone and the service from Straight Talk is very good in the areas they say it will work. I have no complaints about the working condition of the phone. It arrived before the date promised looking like a brand new iPhone 5, only not in the original box. The only reason I gave it less than perfect stars is that I was sure the original listing said the phone had the original Apple warranty of 90 days phone support and 1 year manufacturers warranty. This is not the case as when I contacted Apple to register the product, I was told the purchase date was October of 2013 and could not be changed but that the warranty is still in effect until October 2014. So, I have only a 9 month warranty instead of 12 month. However, I worked for weeks trying to get as good a deal on Ebay and could not find a used iPhone 5 for $400, so I still think this is a very good deal and would recommend it. I have owned the phone for 2 weeks.


Phone looks and works like brand new

I saved $150.00 over another popular prepay competitor for the phone. Straight talk is $5.00 per month cheaper with $45 for the monthly plan which is a savings of $60 per year, dinner for two paid for.


Great phone / excelente telefono

I got this phone in a box , obviously not the original apple box. when you open it there is another box that contains the phone, cable, headphones and the cube charger in bags , the phone is well wrapped with bubble bag . It came in great condition like new. Definitely recommend this phone. Don't go for the $650 new phone, even if this is refurbished it looks new, feels new and doesn't have any scratches. Also comes with a $45 card to add it for month. If you dont want the Straight Talk service the only thing you got to do is not activate it with straight talk when you get it. Go to whatever company you'd like your phone to be in and thats it :). The service is good so far though, when im home i just use the Wifi to browse the internet, watch videos etc so i turn the cellular data off. The only thing about it that i don't like is that when your on the phone talking with someone, its low so you might want to use headphones or put the speaker on :)


It Doesn't Get Better Than This!

Received my "refurbished" iPhone 5 in "like-new" condition cosmetically and functionally! The "Roll Back" price was $444.88 and included a 30 Day Straight Talk card. The Straight Talk card sells for $45, so do the math! The iPhone 5 cost just 399.88 and includes a 1 Year Apple Warranty! Meanwhile, used iPhone 5 models are selling on eBay for $400-500. What?\n\nSet up was quick and easy. In a matter of minutes my iPhone 5 was upgraded to the new IOS 7 operating system (great!) and activated on Straight Talk.\n\nThis is a CDMA phone which uses Verizon's signal. I live in a rural area and had poor reception in the past with AT&T and Sprint. So I was very happy to see 5 bars (dots actually) on the signal strength indicator. The data speed is fast! Voice quality on phone calls is very good.\n\nThe iPhone 5 is nearly identical to the "new" iPhone 5C. The difference being that the 5C has a polycarbonate (plastic body) and is available in a variety of bright colors. The iPhone 5 has the higher grade aluminum and glass body. Which would you choose? A new 5C at $549, or a like-new refurbished iPhone 5 at $399? Both include Apple's 1 Year Warranty.\n\nTo extend my initial 30 day service, I decided to opt for Straight Talk's One Year Service Card which sells for $495. This works out to $41.25 a month, compared to $45 when paid monthly. I should mention that Straight Talk's data service is 3G (not 4G/LTE). However, there is no 4G signal in my area, as currently it is only found in major population centers. My experience with the 3G service so far is very good. It's plenty fast enough for my needs. For $41.25 a month, it is a terrific value, especially compared to Verizon or AT&T at around $90 or more.\n\nKeep in mind that "unlimited data" on Straight Talk will be slowed to EDGE speed (slow!) if you consume a lot of data. Although they don't provide details, it looks like slower speeds begin after 2GB of data are used within a 30 day period. I don't use a large amount of data, about 1GB a month, so this is not an issue for me, but it might be to heavy users.\n\nThe iPhone 5 is a superb device! And Straight Talk works as promised! 5 Stars!!


Great phone

I had a 4th generation Apple iPod touch for a year before I finally decided to buy an iPhone. The phone itself is flawless and exceptionally beautiful. It's easy to use and easy to personalize. As far as Straight Talk, so far the service has been good. No dropped calls whatsoever. The only thing is that sometimes 3G is a little slow, but only in some places. I work in a school so there is always Wifi available and I predominately use wifi at home, too- so I haven't had much use for the data yet. Another issue was the charger that came with the phone. I don't know if it's because the phone is refurbished, but I had an issue with the screen shaking while the phone was being charged. It's not a big issue, it's just hard to scroll. The problem is the charger is not a genuine Apple charger. But that can be easily remedied by buying the aforementioned charger which, for the amount of money you are saving by buying this iPhone from Straight Talk, should be no problem.


Love the phone, but no 4g with Straight Talk.

I absolutely love this phone. Even though it is refurbished, you can't tell it from a brand new phone. But I expected to get 4g. I was activated on the Verizon network with Straight Talk and there is definitely 4g Verizon towers in my area and other areas where I travel. The only thing I can think of is that the agreement between ST & Verizon doesn't allow 4g for the iphone on ST. Straight Talk should make this known before someone buys their service. I switched from Verizon to ST about a year ago and I think it is a much better value. But I paid a lot for this phone and I want to be able to use it's full capabilities. If I can't get 4g, I will return the phone or see if I can use it on another network. I'm not sure if it is an "unlocked" phone. I would welcome comments from anyone who knows more about how this works.


Read this review before buying

This has nothing to do with Walmart -- just the Straight Talk service. I read a lot of reviews and was concerned about streaming Netflex. This wasn't a personal issue, just that when a description says unlimited data I want it to mean unlimited data.\n\nOK, I got the iPhone 5 and once I had everything setup, I tested Netflex. I made sure my wifi was turned off. The Netflix connection took a bit longer than normal and once connected the video wasn't quite as crisp as it would be with wifi. But other than that, it did play just fine.\n\nI think any negative reviews I saw on other blogs may have been older reviews or with different phones. I saw where Straight Talk addressed this in a PC Mag. Blog and their response answered my concerns. Hey, the only reason I'd want to watch Netflix on an iPhone is if I'm out shopping with my wife and I want to retreat to the car to watch TV. (That alone justified this purchased!)\n\nNow about the reconditioned iPhone 5. Go for it! Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but reconditioned means it's as good as new -- at least to the end user. Saving $150 is a big deal. Just know that like most carrier specific phones, this is a Straight Talk FOREVER device. This is why I read so many reviews. WALMART --- LISTEN UP. I'm trusting you to stand behind Straight Talk and make sure they stay in business for a very long time.\n\nAlso, see if your bank or credit card has a $600 12 month no interest deal going on. Barclaycard did so this deal is costing me $25 a month for a year with NO CONTRACT!!!!! Straight Talk is $45 + maybe sales tax but none of the long list of taxes and fees that none of us understand.\n\nI've got friends paying over $100 moth and they're stuck on a contract for a couple of years.\n\nI don't work for Walmart or Straight Talk. I've made my living as a designer using Macs for 30 years and never could justify $100+ month for a cell phone. Walmart's reconditioned iPhone 5 deal is too sweet not to enjoy.\n\nThat's my story and I'm sticking to it.
