Can this phone be used on Straight Talk via Sim card?

If so will it be carrier unlocked like my GP Nexus 5 or will I need to have it unlocked?

all nexus 5 are unlocked, no matter what sprint employees tell you. and with a sim card, they will also work on tmobiles and atts network,. so yea, pop in the right sim and itll work on straight talk.

I received my Nexus 5 before leaving to work and on my lunch brake I took my full size AT&T Sim card out of my S2 and trimmed it to fit,popped it in and works great.I did need to activate the IMEI the next day and have had strong LTE
