    Straight Talk SIM card in Alltel phone?

    I was wondering if anyone has tried to use a SIM card from a Straight Talk phone with an Alltel phone? I have the Banter from Alltel and The Samsung equivalent from ST. Just wondering if it would work that way so that i could just buy the Straight Talk cards. I haven't had a plan with Alltel since last year.

    Alltel phones work on a CDMA network and will not accept SIM cards. Only one BlackBerry phone offered by Alltel has GSM bands for international roaming. The phone you mentioned, the Banter, is a CDMA only phone.

    ST has CDMA phones running on Verizon, but there is no way to activate a ST CDMA phone and switch the service over to your Altell CDMA phone.
