    Hello.
    I work for Wal-Mart and want an Iphone 5 to unlock and use on Straight Talk.
    To my knowledge, I can buy a phone from Wal-Mart for $700 and use my 10% discount. So after taxes and discount were looking at $674 out the door. About $30 cheaper than buying from Apple Unlocked.

    So can i take my new device to an AT&T store, get them to unlock it, cut my ST sim card, update me APN settings and I should be good to go?

    Thanks!!!

    More than 50... Use your Wally world discount

    You don't need to get AT&T involved if you buy a factory unlocked phone.

    I was under the impression that Walmart only sold 16fb phones locked to either cartoon or AT&T under contract....
    You sure you can even buy one at full price?
    Also AT&T has no real incentive to unlock your phone, so it might be a bit of a hassle....

    Better still, ask WalMart to price match BestBut and thus still get your company discount

    In Kennesaw, GA and surrounding areas, BestBuy are selling the iPhone 5 for $ 649.99 off contract. I believe it was all part of the Christmas \ New Year deals. And like I said earlier, I only bought my iPhone 5 off contract from BestBuy week before last (since today is Sunday and thus a new week)
