As expected, pricing for the respective models is fixed at $449 for the 8GB iPhone 4 and $649 for the 16GB iPhone 5. Both black and white versions of each model will be made available for purchase with the financing offers being made available as well.
Walmart will offer a special financing deal on the purchase of the phone for $25 a month with a Walmart Credit Card or Walmart Discover Card on these select models. Pricing for the Straight Talk no-contract plans for the iPhone and smartphones include the following:
