OP, any luck?
I have a 4S on 5.1 and a GEVEY ultra S and about to purchase a prepaid T-mobile plan.

The only thing I like about T-Mobile so far is the coverage and prices. I get 4-5 bars just about everywhere.
T-Mobile is absolutely wonderful. The bad parts are just with the iPhone. If the iPhone was fully T-Mobile compatible, I would go with them no doubt. Hopefully the next iPhone will support all their frequencies.

would you post a confirmation if Straight talk work for you once you get it up and running?
would I need to be jailbroken to edit APN settings for straight talk? I'm on 5.1 iphone 4S
Thanks so much!

Alright, I ordered the ST micro-SIM yesterday. It should get here sometime this week.

Any luck with straightTalk, bro?

So far, I'm impressed. Upon inserting the SIM card and rebooting, I have calling and SMS working, with no changes to the APN settings. I also have the 4G (HPSA+) indicator, however I get a message saying that I am not subscribed to a data service. I'm pretty sure that means I'll have HPSA+ eventually . I'll wait a few hours and see if data starts to work, like the website says. If that doesn't work I'll change my APN settings and tell you how it goes down. So far I'm impressed though! EDGE to (kinda) unlimited HPSA+ for only $15 more! On top of that, no GEVEY or jailbreak!
Okay, so I went to Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone and installed their profile for ST, and now my HPSA+ internet is working! Pretty good speeds for me at least, 160 kB/s download so far, so just a little over my home connection speed. Only thing not working is MMS, which I will mess with sometime later. Looks like Straight Talk is the way to go!

This can be fixed in ur apn settings but in order to adjust these settings u WILL need to be jailbroken.

Since the 5.1.1 jailbreak, (w00t!), I was able to jailbreak my iPhone 4S for the first time. I couldn't get MMS to work with iBackupBot. It looks like MMS messages send without any errors, but nobody ever receives them. I jailbroke and installed TetherMe to get the Settings -> General -> Network -> 'Cellular Data Network' tab ( or something along those lines, I forget). The correct settings were there from when I messed with iBackupBot, but still no luck. Oh well, I guess. Picture messaging and group messaging aren't essential to me.
For $45 a month, unlimited voice, texts, and HPSA+ (4G) data is WONDERFUL. Granted, I only get three bars at my house, but if I couldn't see the bars you couldn't tell the difference. I usually get 150-500 kB/s. I can't get an accurate reading because it takes a few seconds to initiate the connection, and by that time the SpeedTest app is already finished, and it comes up as 0.00 kB/s. With a Safari file downloader tweak, I get about 350 kB/s average. As my home connection is limited to 150 kB/s, this is wonderful in my eyes.
Only thing I've noticed, my battery is absolutely horrific with cell service, but I guess that's just because I'm used to using it as an iPod Touch. Although, this can most likely be attributed to the glowing logo mod I installed.
(My ISP false-advertises their speeds as 1.5 megabytes/second, when actually I get 1.5 megabits/second.) >
Just to clear things up, kB/s = kiloBYTES, not BITS. The run-around with my ISP has driven me insane.
