    Not possible. Sorry, America Movil companies do not work this way, even considering CDMA-like or GSM-like phone swaps, both types being used by all AM companies. Wrong notion.

    Officially, it's not possible. StraightTalk SIMs won't work in any phone other than a StraightTalk branded phone.

    Having said that, there was a report that the "ID" that identifies it as a Tracfone device is common to many of their devices.

    You'll need a StraightTalk SIM, but if you install it in a Net10 GSM device, there is at least a chance of it working, according to what has been said on this forum. You might have to unlock the phone, but that's not usually very complicated.

    I would assume the main problem would be the airtime tank. Although, some straight talk phones have a vestigial airtime tank.

    Maybe you could have just bought the phone online?? They probably sell on the net10 website..

    There is no byod on any Tracfone network with the exception of the Exx Nokia series sim in a unlocked gsm trick (which costs two hundred bucks).

    The closest thing to byod here is to just put the Net10 phone on a Net10 unlimited plan.

    If you're using the 1000 minute plan, get a Verizon phone, port out to Page Plus. For the same price, you get 1200 minutes/2000 texts and 100 megs. A way better deal.

    The Net10 unlimited deal costs 5 dollars more but it also allows you to switch to paygo. ST does not have a paygo option.

    Wrong.

    I've used 2 AT&T phones, one iPhone and one Android HTC, on Straight Talk. Iphone merely required a simple jailbreak to reset the APN settings. With the Android phone, the APN setting change was very easy, and required zero tweaking. Afterward, removed the AT&T SIM and dropped in the Straight Talk SIM.....no issues. Of course, the Straight Talk SIM is is really an AT&T network SIM, licensed or private labeled to Straight Talk
