    I just ordered an N5. I currently have a GN on Verizon but unfortunately Verizon isn't an option for the GN so AT&T is the only choice. My question is about AT&T directly of via StraightTalk. Has any tried both? Does Straighttalk get the same coverage and performance as a direct AT&T plan?

    I have had both. Actually AT&T is a better choice in my area than my Verizon was.

    I was on Straight Talk for quite awhile but left them mostly because of very poor customer service. I am on a GoPhone plan now.

    I was paying $48.01 a month for ST after taxes. I get my refills through a site that does not charge anything extra and gives a full 10% discount so I pay $54 a month on GoPhone. For an additional $6 it is very much worth it at least for me.

    When I was on ST the data part of the contract was VERY spotty. One day I got good download speed, the next was terrible. With AT&T I get LTE speeds for 2gb.

    Hope this helps a bit. One thing you definitely need to know is how AT&T compares with Verizon in the area you will be using the service.

    You could also look into AIO. They are also an mvno using at&t's network. In my area they actually have better/faster data coverage then Verizon. The two plans that are interesting are $55 and $70 a month. They both offer unlimited everything with either 2Gb or 7gb of high-speed data before they throttle you down to 2g speeds.

    I've been VERY happy with aio, especially since I now have coverage at work ;)
