Wal-Mart has recently added phones from AT&T to its Straight Talk service. Straight Talk, run by Tracfone, is a pre-paid offering that offers consumers a lower-cost alternative to post-paid contracts. Wal-Mart previously offered only Verizon handsets via the Straight Talk. The addition of AT&T to its roster gives consumers more choice and flexibility.

Droid X or iPhone 4

2 questions...

-can you hook up a droid x to straight talk

-can you take a straight talk sim and put it in an unlocked gsm device like a Nexus One or an iPhone 4 since now at&t is in the mix?
Not an iPhone 4 surely, because it doesn't use a standard SIM, like the iPad it uses a standard SIM...although why I have no idea...I spoken to literally dozens of customers to whom the micro-SIM has caused major headaches when they wanted to swap SIM...

Not Verizon.

Straight Talk is owned and operated on the Trackphone network. It may use some Verizon towers, but it is certainly not a Verizon service in any way.
It uses only Verizons network. If you leave it, you won't roam. They use Verizon PRLs and Prefixes.
