    Cdma byop?

    Today one of the reps on Facebook advised someone inquiring about bringing a Verizon phone to Straight Talk to check out their CDMA BYOP program and gave this link http://www.straighttalkbyop.com/. A short time later her post was removed. Looks like a website under development.

    If CDMA BYOP finally arrives my prediction of 12/31/12 wasn't too far off!

    That will be interesting of what phones will be allowed and what plans will they offer.

    PagePlus has bring your own Verizon CDMA phone but newer 4g devices need to be flashed to PP.

    Competition for PagePlus now?

    Well, the domain is definitely owned by Tracfone. Would be cool if they allowed 4G phones, even if just with 3G access.
    Past providers: Page Plus, AT&T, T-Mobile, Virgin, Straight Talk
    Past phones: Nokia 820, Motorola Atrix HD, iPhone 4S, HTC One V, iPhone 4, Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia N9, Samsung Focus, Samsung Captivate, Nokia N900, HTC 8525, iPhone 3GS, iPhone, Nokia E61i, Siemens A56...

    Starts 3/26/13. You will be required to purchase a $14.99 "Network Access Code" and a $45 or $60 monthly service card. Verizon androids and Iphones will be accepted (with the exception of the Iphone 5). No LTE phones, No Sprint or Metro.

    Re: Cdma byop?

    So that means stone age Android phones such as Droid X/X2 etc will be ok. At least with PP certain phones can be flashed but I guess that same flashing could apply for ST unless 4g ESNs will not activate.

    What is the difference between the $45 and $60 cards for Verizon BYOD?

    Cdma byop?

    Nice! I'm pretty sure that an unlocked Verizon iPhone 4S can work with a tmobile or att sim in it right ?

    If so that's awesome. But I'm still partial to talking and surfing the web on my iPhone at times. Don't think u can do that yet on CDMA.

    Hopefully you can purchase the "Network Access Code" on the new website and get the phone activated without having to call Customer Service.

    We received an update about CDMA BYOP Program. Check the info below:
    Beginning on March 26, 2013, the BYOP Program will now include CDMA (Verizon) phones. Customers will be able to bring their Verizon certified phone to Straight Talk by simply purchasing a Network Access Code, for $14.99 plus tax, and an Unlimited or Unlimited ILD Airtime/Service Card. Note: The Network Access Code will serve as a key to load and identify the Verizon phones in the system.
    Any phone can be eligible provided that it has not been activated outside of the Verizon network including Androids and iPhones (iPhone 5 model is not compatible, other CDMA carriers: Sprint and Metro PCS, 4G LTE technology phones, our branded phones (TracFone, NET10, Straight Talk, SafeLink, or Telcel America) and Blackberry, iPads, or tablets).

    This is huge -- I'm very excited if everything holds true!

    I am a little worried about what the "hasn't been activated outside of the network means though -- if my phone is on PagePlus currently, does that count as being "previously activated outside of the network"? That will lock out a ton of phones if so...

    I'm not clear what is the big attraction. I guess the competition is good, but $45 plus tax for unltd? Possibly throttled after 2GB? And still stuck with a 3G droid? I dunno. I'm happy with PPC. If I wanted more than my 250MB Id be happy paying $55 no tax and not having to switch to straight talk. I must be missing the big picture here. I admit I dont keep up with the intricacies of ST because I havent needed it.

    Geez, Verizon is really trying to maximize whatever profit they can on their legacy CDMA program.

    If this pans out, I'm curious if LTE Verizon phones may also work under this program. There are quite a bunch of phones that I wouldn't mind using with LTE disabled off. The iPhone was never enough to sell me.
