Straight Talk starting Verizon BYOD program tomorrow

Straight Talk is set to launch another big initiative. According to, the carrier tomorrow will launch a bring-your-own device program for Verizon-branded devices. This just adds to their BYOD program for AT&T and T-Mobile phones. There are certain limitations, which we’ll cover after the jump. But as notes, this puts Straight Talk in heated competition with Page Plus, which also offers a BYOD program for Verizon phones. As you might expect, the BYOD devices are limited to 3G smartphones, from the following list: 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 Additionally, you’ll have to get the $45 unlimited plan, though that is true for all smartphones at this point. You’ll notice the lack of iPhone in that list, but that’s because Straight Talk offers the iPhone directly. Again, the promotion will start tomorrow, March 26th. ]]>
