    Cdma byop?

    So what Verizon phones are eligible for this byod program? Would a galaxy note 2 or galaxy s3 be possible?

    Those are LTE, so I doubt it

    The list of working phones are probably the same phones that work on Pageplus out of the box. So no 4g phones.

    What is the difference between the $45 and $60 cards for Verizon BYOD?
    The $60 plan also includes international calling to many countries including calls to cell phones in some countries such as Mexico.

    Re: Cdma byop?

    This is a pretty good list of the "stone age phones" that work on PPC that are not LTE:

    Apple iPhone -- Any VZW CDMA model prior to iphone 5
    HTC Eris
    HTC Incredible
    HTC Incredible 2
    HTC Rhyme
    HTC Merge
    HTC Trophy (Windows Phone 7.x)
    LG Vortex
    LG Enlighten (slide out hardware keyboard-update of the Ally)
    LG Ally (slide out hardware keyboard)
    Palm Pixi Plus
    Palm Pre Plus
    Palm Pre 2
    Motorola Droid (commonly referred to as the Droid 1) The Droid 1,2, & 3 have slide out keyboards
    Motorola Droid 2
    Motorola Droid 3
    Motorola Droid X (predecessor to X2, slightly lower specs)
    Motorola Droid X2
    Motorola Droid Pro (portrait keyboard)
    Samsung Continuum
    Samsung Fascinate
    Any/all Windows Mobile phones like HTC Ozone, Samsung Omnia series, Palm Treo Pro

    I didn't catch whether ST is stipulating Android only, but how would they do that? Anyway, if so, just leave out the Palm/webOS phones and the Windows Mobile/Windows Phone models. Everything else is Android, Gingerbread and older (if stock, of course).

    I don't understand why they won't just allow "4g" phones and just block lte.

    It's pretty clear, clean esn 3G cdma Verizon Androids and iphones. No LTE whatsover flashed or not. It does not mention if older windows Mobile, Palm, Blackberry and feature phones will work or not. 3G ones of course.

    In the early days of the GSM BYOP their reps told everyone the phone MUST be unlocked. A few of us kept telling them that was BS. They later admitted phones locked to AT&T would work just fine on an AT&T compatible sim. The android and iphone only "policy" may also be bogus.

    Oh no doubt, but you've got to look at it from their perspective, they don't want to be supporting all these phone models and possible combinations. Support is expensive. So of course they are going to post something like that. Folks who know what they are doing find ways around Straight Talk "policies" all the time although that's no longer the case on AT&T data usage apparently.
