Don't think any do, Verizon does not use sim cards for connections, ATT and Spint do though.

I use the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and yes it's on verizon towers. When you look at straighttalk.com put in a zip of a area that ONLY verizon works in that area like Spring City, TN 37381. If it has a "C" in the model number it's verizon or if it's an android it will have a RED verizon map. The blue maps are ATT. Hope this helps.

I am currently in a Verizon contract which I am going to drop very soon. You are wrong when you say Verizon does not use sim cards because I have a sim card in the phone I use right now. I don't know where you got your info but every Verizon phone I have had used a sim card.

I just learned from a chat line with Verizon that their own pre-paid plan service does not use their regular network, so if the phone is 4G, it will not work. However, that doesn't explain why the IPhone runs off the Verizon towers with Straight Talk. I haven't figured it all out yet, but now know that the phone I want, the Galaxy Note II, will not be on Verizon towers. I'd still be stuck with Sprint.

every Verizon phone I have had through straighttalk has been a CDMA phone (no sim card) apparently this is a new thing of Verizon offering sim cards? Also as far as I know Sprint is CDMA. unless they too are changing to the gsm world. gotta remember technology is always changing so what may be true at one point may not be true later :)

Update: After a lot of hours researching this, I happen to run across Flashedphones.net. I have a Samsung Galaxy II that is CDMA and wanted to move to the Straight Talk Verizon towers because Sprint is very poor in my area. I had to send them my phone, but their turn around time was one day on their end. I couldn't be more pleased that I'm able to keep my phone and also be on the ST Verizon network; I now have great signal at my home that I haven't had in years. They were very professional and even set up my ST account for me. I couldn't be more happy with them. While my phone was en route, I borrowed my dad's cell phone and had my number forwarded to it, but forgot to ask the guys at Flashedphones to forward on the way back, so for a few days people who called my number got the message that my voice mail wasn't set up, but that was really the only glitch that could have been avoided.

It's not used the same way as a sim card in other phones. See some of the links bellow.

I was with Verizon for years an got tired of the contract it and paying all that money every month. Have been with Straight talk since the First of this year (2013) have a Samsung Show case Smart phone on Verizon towers and have had great service and reception. $ dollars and a couple dollars in tax ad I know what my bill is every month and I got out my contract with Verizon early by paying a fee and am still ahead of the game. I swear by it.

Hi, I couldn't help but jump in and and say Verizon runs their phones on cdma which requires no sims card but when 4g LTE came out they then installed a sims card for 4G, so if you have a phone with no sims card it must be a 3G phone which is compatible with straight talk. Even though you see a sims card this doesn't mean it is a phone like from say AT&T. it only runs the 4G aspect of the phone

When I got my husband's Straight Talk at Wal Mart the Sales Associate pointed out to me that it says on the boxes of the different phones which use AT&T and which use Verizon. His phone looks like a BlackBerry, but it is made by Samsung. Between the 2 of us, changing to Straight Talk from Verizon saves us $90.00 a month and we get 1000 more minutes and text messages than we did before. Also when he is driving in rural areas, which he has to do for his job, he has the same coverage he had when we were on Verizon.

Unfortunately, when Verizon decided a 10 year customer had no right to demand a better service package, like new customers were offered, I dropped them !!!

Straight talk now offers a 4g lte phone on verizons network. And yes it is a sim card phone. If you dont mind being on jellybean OS. Its the ZTE Rapido 932C. Decent phone imo. 1.2 dual core processor , 8 mega pixel camera. Screen resolution is decent, 4.5 in screen. At some wal mart stores $179, decent phone for people that want good speed reliable signal and a 45$ 3 gig of data. For us working people that cant afford a $600 phone or want the string attached by contracts! Other straight talk verizon phones are due to be released soon on verizon network keep your eyes open!

Yes. Depending on the phone you buy it could be AT&T towers or Verizon Towers. I have a LG Optimus logic that runs off ATT towers it works great in Boise. I have had it for two years. My friend went and bought the LG optimus Dynamic thinking it was the same phone, however it was not. The Dynamic runs off verizon towers he had terrible signal and later returned it. On the bottom of the phone packages they will display either CDMA V that is a phone that runs of verizon towers or CDMA A for AT&T towers. I also noticed that the Galaxy III runs off verizon towers and the Galaxy S4 is AT&T.

so how did u get them set up? i have a htc one right now and i do use a 4g sim card. i read somewhere the newer Verizon phones come unlocked. Then walmart told me it needs unlocked but the straight talk website said i was compatible and didnt need a sim card, all i needed was to get was the network access code and the service plan card. Then i called straight talk and they said i need to get a sim card. mdkfsdlgj what am i doing wrong? it shouldn't be this difficult

I just switched my S4 to straight talk from Verizon. I did not get it unlocked. I just called straight talks bring your own phone department. Paid for an access code. They sent me a new micro sim card I put it in and it activated with my same number. The s4 is still running off Verizon towers with 4G. However after 3GB of data usage it will drop to 3G speeds. I am still in a contract under Verizon. I'll just pay the fee when they send it both phones are 85 bucks a month with Auto refill. compared to 150.00 plus taxes fees and all that other BS and that was with a 20percent discount.

I just bought a ZTE Rapido from Walmart yesterday. The Walmart employee called Straighttalk and requested that my ATT number be ported to the new phone. I was advised that my ATT phone would stop working within an hour and at that point my new phone would be working on the Verizon 4g LTE system.

4 hours later my ATT phone still worked and my new phone did not. I called straighttalk and spoke with two different people who were very difficult to understand. I was advised that there was an error in their system that required them to cancel my sim card therefore due to their procedures they were required to wait 25 hours before they could attempt to try the porting again. ATT already received the port request and shut my cell phone off with them within minutes of this call. At this point i had no functioning cellphone.

Oh, i should have mentioned that i purchased my wife the same exact phone at the same time and it did not function after 4 hours either. During my call to them i was advised that the sim card was ok and that the port request was sent, HOWEVER, there was an error in the system that would cause a delay but that the phone would be activated at 8pm EST.

At 9pm EST I called Straighttalk back and let them know that the phone was still not activated. After speaking to two different people again i was advised 45 miinutes later that there was no one there who could help me fix the problem and that it would be 24 hours before they could expidite my request to activate the phone.

So to answer your question. Apparently none. At least not where I live.

Also not all CDMA phones are Verizon there are Sprint CDMA as well. AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM<< These take sim cards in order to operate the phone. NOT the same SIM as Verizon 4G-LTE.

You can use any unlocked cdma phone that is unlocked by verizon. Starting with iphone 5 from vzw u can simply insert another carriers sim card and use it with that carrier. For example. I just bought a iphone 6. When it showed up i removed the verizon nano sim and replaced with my straight talk sim. Works great. I used straight talks verizon sim and was not able to use the 4g lte. So i changed to the att sim and now have awesome lte service. Obama made a law that all 4G phones be sold unlocked. Only can they be locked is if you do not pay whatever fees are associated with terminating your contract. If you finished out the contract then it will stay unlocked

Let's try to be a little civil here and not call others idiots. With all due respect you shouldn't be calling Billie an idiot because you are wrong. Here is the short and sweet of it. With Straight Talk if the phone is a CDMA technology phone (usually not using a sim card) it goes to Verizon towers. If the phone is a GSM technology phone (using sim cards) it usually goes to AT&T towers. So, when you bring your own phone to Straight talk and use their BYOP kit, it provides you with sim cards for a GSM phone, and therefore will go to AT&T towers.

Also something to note is that the major carriers have a tier program (or I call it a totem pole) of signal priorities. Take Verizon for example. Their contract customers get top priority to the signal, then their own prepaid customers get second priority, and finally the re-sellers like Straight Talk get third priority. That affects signal strength to a certain extent, meaning that contract customers usually get a stronger signal.

Just another note here for a case that is different. Cricket used to have their own towers that were CDMA towers. Since they were bought out by AT&T they are now a GSM carrier. The tiered or totem pole affect is not true with Cricket and the AT&T towers. Under the new structure Cricket has it's own dedicated AT&T towers and The old AOI towers.

Hope this helps and lets be civil here.

I just switch my family over to Total Wireless, which is a brand of a Mexican company that operates Trac Fone, StraightTtalk, Simple Wreless, and a host of other small mvno. Verizon phones do carry sim cards for their 4G service. Most of these 3rd rate no contract companies run on the older 3G service, and Straight Talk does run off of Verizon's 3G network.. We have 2 LG G3, 2 LG G2, and a Droid Maxx which Total Wireless told me is not compatible with their service, Because we are trying to save some money we went with their least expensive phone, LG Optimus Fuel (look it up, man that hurt my heart, but my wallet will be happy).

I thought that I would be able to buy an unlock phone to use with Total Wireless, but after my research, it is clear to me that Verizon locked up their network pretty tight,t and finding a current phone with all the bells and whistles that phone junkies like me like to run on their network is next to impossible.

I talked to NET10 about the SIM kits for Verizon phones and the BYOD...I wanted to activate my sons Verizon branded S4 Mini....After alot of beating around the bush he explained to me that Verizon Branded phones use the Verizon for talk and text and use ATT towers for data on their (Net10) network with their (Net10) SIM.. I assume Straight talk is the same since they offer the exact same package and are both tracfone.. It becomes real obvious once you see the APN settings for the so called Verizon BYOD kits.. they are identical to my daughters NET10 on ATT and My wifes Straight Talk on ATT towers.. This is right from NET10 folks.. I then called over to Verizon and asked about it and they told me that NET10 and Straight Talk do indeed use the CDMA portion for Talk and Text but do not use the LTE part of there signal..
