I ask the question to because I have successfully converted my girlfriend to WP8 Only problem is she can't afford premium prices of at&t and Verizon and T-mobile coverage in our area is lackluster.
She prefers to go with Straight Talk and I know they operate off of other carriers.
I just want some clarification though I researched I am still not sure.
So, does it matter if she bought the t-mobile, at&t, or Verizon variations?
Or does she specifically have to go through at&t because that's what straight talk mainly runs off of with their sim card?
Much appreciated for the answers to come

Not exactly interchangeable but for what you wanted, it may not matter.
Verizon version: supports Verizon's CDMA, LTE and unlocked GSM/HSPA.
AT&T version: supports AT&T's GSM/HSPA+, LTE. Locked to AT&T.
T-Mo version: supports T-Mo's GSM and HSPA+. Locked to T-Mo
AT&T and T-Mo uses different 3G frequencies in most places. Verizon's version may only support international frequencies for GSM/HSPA. So, these phones may not be able to get full data speed on other networks in US. So, if Straight talk is your choice, you can chose AT&T version.
