You need it unlocked if you are running any SIM aside from a TMO one, If stright talk uses the same bands as ATT then you should just be able to place the Straight Talk APN and get your signal working

I'm using TMo S5 on AT&T. I'm getting LTE. Getting ~30 Mbps, lower than ~45 Mbps I used of get on AT&T S5, but no complaints here.

This is an old thread but I can tell you, YES YOU CAN! I just did it last week. You will still get the LTE and everything just like it's an AT&T phone.

I couldn't root the at&t s5 so had to get the tmobile one so I can root it and put a custom recovery on it
