    Your phone with Sprint/VM is CDMA (no SIM card). Only a smart phone with SIM card will work using the SIM from the ST E-71.

    If you're interested in the LG Optimus series phones and would like to use one on Straight Talk's network (AT&T) you could get an Optimus One. The following phones CAN NOT be used on Straight Talk.

    The first on the list is Verizon's Optimus (called the Vortex on their network, CDMA), Optimus S (Sprint, CDMA), Optimus V (Virgin Mobile, Sprint, CDMA), Optimus M (MetroPCS, CDMA), Optimus U (U.S. Cellular, CDMA).

    The Optimus One is on AT&T's GSM network. From what I've been able to gather it is also possible to use a T-Mobile Optimus T on the Straight Talk plan as well.

    well it can be done in my area. Here they use verizion and there CDMA. basicly you would have to flash some network id numbers to the android and call to register the phone that you got the numbers from you will also have to dial##VIRGIN# to get the programing menu to add the MDN and MSID. its not easy

    This is basically the same phone at the optimus v http://www.walmart.com/ip/AT-T-Prepa...ilver/16914036 and it would work on straight talk

    also you could probably get bestbuy to match that price and then use http://howardforums.com/NFMcH coupon and get it for $140 brand new
