    I have to be honest, I am not very knowledgeable on this kind of thing, and so far my google searches have produced zilch, BUT I was wondering if anyone might have some information on the ST iPhone 4.

    More specifically, are they unlocked for use on any carrier? I've read a little about the ST iPhone 5 not being able to use LTE and such for whatever reason, but they can be used with other carriers.

    To make it a little more difficult, I will be moving to Canada soon so I basically want to know if I need to get rid of the phone (Or use it as a glorified iPod), or if it will still be usable.

    I don't know enough to figure this stuff out myself, and I can't try it until I move, so if anyone can help, I'd truly appreciate it.

    To clarify, it is the iPhone 4 8GB, from Straight Talk/Walmart.

    If I am not mistaken the straight talk iPhone 4 is CDMA therefore use with other carriers is much more limited than a GSM phone. You would need to get it unlocked and found out if there are any Canadian carriers that supports the bands your phone has.

    I looked up the model number and yes, unfortunately it is CDMA. I'd have to hope that a Canadian carrier is on a network that matches Verizon which, by my guess, is like trying to hit a bullseye while p*ssing in the wind... Kind of sucks but at least I can attempt to resell it or something before I move.
