Straight Talk Iphone 5S - will it work with AT&T sim card?

I am planning to buy Straight talk Iphone 5s from walmart and planning to use with AT&T. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-Apple-iPhone-5S-16GB-4G-LTE-Prepaid-Smartphone/50285046?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227039148888&wl0=&wl1=s&wl2=c&wl3=90379843952&wl4=pla-182536175312&wl5=9023454&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=50285046&wl13=&veh=sem

My Question is will it work? I am planning to use with AT&T straight out of box. Straight talk iphone 5s is on sale for $144 vs. AT&T Go phone iphone 5s is for %199. I am just trying to save $50. Do you see any issue with this? Anything i need to verify to make sure it works with AT&T sim card?

Like any promotion, ST is offering a $150 phone so you have to buy their service.  It would be locked to ST.

It would be locked to ST, Probably for 6 months, just like ATT phones.

 

BTW, ATT has the same offer with $45 aircard.

StraightTalk uses either Verizon or AT&T networks. (At least in Ohio) Good possibility it may already work on the AT&T network without any changes.

Just ask them which network the phone works on. I know it one point I bought a straight talk phone and requested a Verizon phone and they were able to pick a Verizon model.

I am looking to do the same thing.  Did this work for you?

I cannot afford to go the AT&T route & wonder if I can remove the AT&T Sim card & replace it with one I can buy from Boostmobile for $20?                                                                                                                                                                                                     Tia,           dave alan:manfrustrated:
