As Wal-Mart wraps up its sale on the iPhone 5, it is also announcing that the popular smartphone will now be carried by Straight Talk, the no-contract network that is available only at Wal-Mart.

Straight Talk will offer the 16 GB version of the phone for $650. It will work with a monthly $45 plan that includes unlimited talk, text and data. The 8 GB iPhone 4 will also be available for $450. Customers who purchase either of the phones in the store can finance it and pay an additional $25 per month for their device. For the iPhone 5, those payments would last 26 months.

    Who cares. A phone is a phone regardless of where it's sold. I already have one so it isn't "desirable" to me.

    It's not a game changer, but I would still rather get it from the Apple Store (even though it would be more expensive) because they would hook it up and you can buy a protection plan for it. I don't really think it otherwise matters.

    Of course. I don't see how the value of an iPhone would change just because it was bought at Wal-Mart instead of a phone store. It's the same exact product.

    I wish I could get one of these, the only issue is that it's $650 for the phone itself because there is no contract. I have an iPhone 3GS but it no longer has service because my parents couldn't afford the AT&T; bill ($80 something/month).

    No. Wal-Mart is owned by the Waltons: one of the scummiest family of people on this planet.

    People either love the iPhone or have some inherent dislike or even hate for it. I am not a technology person but the iPhone makes it easy, therefore I love it.  The majority of people I know own iPhones.  They are great.  Walmart selling them does bring down the image of the iPhone.  So does walmart selling them make them less desirable? Well it make them less exclusive.   But until something comes out as simple and easy to use as the iPhone that isn't equally overpriced then I am sticking with it.   iPhone is intuitive... A 5 year old can use it with no training.  I have no desire to spend my time having to learn how to use a phone.  Better things to do.

    But...



    It makes no difference at all to me that Wal-Mart sells iPhones.



    I don't do iJunk. Apple makes neat gadgets but that company is so insular it makes Microsoft look like a champion of open source.
