Straight Talk gets the Apple iPhone 5 on January 11th
Deep discounter Walmart and Straight Talk will be offering the Apple iPhone 5 for the pre-paid carrier starting on January 11th. The 16GB unlocked model will be priced at $649, the same price that Apple is asking for the phone. In addition, Straight Talk will sell you the 8GB unlocked Apple iPhone 4 for $449. If those prices are too much for you to pay at once, Walmart will let you finance the purchase of either iPhone model for $25 per month with the use of a Walmart credit card.

Both Apple iPhone models will work with the $45 no contract unlimited talk, text and data. If you want to add unlimited international calls, the price rises to $60 a month. If you finance the handset, you will be paying $70 a month for unlimited every thing without getting locked into a two-year contract. Straight Talk says that its plan saves customers $950 a year when they switch from a similar unlimited contract plan on a post-paid carrier.
