Hey AndroidCentral. As this is my first post, I'd like to clarify, I do not have my phone yet. I ordered the I515 yesterday, from Amazon. So, on with my question!

Since Net10 and Straight Talk both have CDMA plans, does this mean I can use the UNLOCKED I515 on one of these? I mean, it's Verizon's phone, and VZW is CDMA. And, like I said, it's unlocked, so it's not like I have to get Verizon on it.

Thanks,
Goo

Figured it out. The answer is NO. Even though they both have CDMA plans, these can't have LTE. LTE requires a SIM to function. If you were to buy the CDMA activation, it wouldn't work, as it's an LTE phone. So, for all out there wanting this, unfortunately, you can't. You CAN however, use Verizon's prepaid plan for Smartphones. So, you have to take it to your local VZW store, and tell them "I would like to activate my GNex on the ALLSET plan!" And, you should have a prepaid GNex I515! So, yay me for answering my own question...
