    Straight Talk New Coverage Map Is Same As AT&T

    Like the title says the new map that is on www.straighttalk.com/coverage is the same as AT&T. Compare 'em. The top map is straighttalk and the bottom map is AT&T.

    Well I looked at them again and they match up except some out west. I wonder if that is AT&T roaming out west. I just posted the map that was on AT&T's website.

    There are still some unanswered questions: Will any of these new GSM phones come with T-Mobile SIM cards (can it be identified the same way as with Tracfone/Net10, because they are the same cards)? Will there be roaming on other GSM networks, like with Tracfone and Net10?

    Only time will tell.

    Probably just AT&T wanting part of the action. Tracfone/Net10 have always offered both GSM and CDMA.

    The MAP not only looks like AT&T's, but it seems to include roaming, whereas Verizon didn't roam. Nebraska is shown solid, but AT&T has very little native coverage, there.

    Interestingly, it lists both your old phone model and the new one. I wonder why that would be?

    TracFone sucks?

    Sorry, couldn't help it.

    Maybe somehow he has both phones listed on his account?

    I just left Walmart after picking up a refill card. The girl there told me that All Straight talk phones will be switched to the AT&T network. None will be left on Verizon. I know my R451C does not have a sim card.
    So I am wondering how they are going to switch it. Is a sim card not required?

    The clerk may be incorrect. If they drop Verizon/CDMA then the CDMA phones become useless. Hold on to your receipts till this is cleared up.

    Surely that would not happen. The Verizon phones should be grandfathered in and not be turned off. I wonder what happen between ST and Verizon? Maybe AT&T gave ST a better deal. Im glad its not TMobile. LOL
