No, Straight Talk SIM cards will not work in any phone except the one it was sold with.
So you cannot use your phone on Straight Talk.
So, I was able to swap a regular T-Mobile SIM for a monthly subscriber into this TP2 and it worked just fine (since I used the SIM unlocker to free the "overseas" GSM SIM feature). Can I do the same with a Straight Talk SIM?
If so, do I need to buy the cheapest ST phone from Wally World, a $45 card, activate the phone, and load it before I swap?
Doesn't this seem too simple?
Won't work but there Are plenty of gsm mvnos that
Will work with it.
trying to come up with better signature.......
Don't listen to the above posters. Lot's of people have done just what you describe. A quick search will reveal as much. Go for it
Nobody has been able to put a single unlocked phone on the ST network yet as far as we know. It is more likely to be able to unlock an ST phone to use on another gsm network then to use another non ST gsm phone with ST.
This has been proven to be the case with cdma ST phones which can be used on other Verizon mvnos like Page Plus (but other Verizon mvno/prepaid phones cannot be used on ST).

Not doubting you but can't really see what is in the display with ST sim card in your Nokia.
beand1p: can you send me the lg620g phone since you don't need it? Thanks.
I'd love to know how you did this...I tried the same thing with a ST-ATT SIM in an unlocked Cingular HTC phone, and it was unable to lock into the network. Perfect signal with the ST phone, and with the HTC phone (on my ATT account) but not when the ST SIM was installed in the HTC.
@stompoutloud - Sorry, I use my 620G. That Nokia 1208 is ancient.
@chuckknight - I didn't have to do anything at all. It just works.
