    You can if the ST SIM has never been in a phone and that phone powered up with the SIM inside. Is there some reason you cannot wait for a free replacement SIM to be sent to you for the Net10 phone? The two nokia`s have an unlocked SIM that is unique to ST. The locked SIM`s are common to all the Trac companies, so they are interchangeable between brands. It does not make sense for you to be talking about the unlocked type SIM..

    NOTE: If you attempt to activate a phone and the S/N of the SIM`s in the phone and in Trac`s computer do not match, the activation fails and the SIM is ruined.

    Well here is what I would like to do. Walmart.com has the LG900g Net Bundle for $29.88. Since Straight Talk does not seem to have the LG900 for sale any longer, I wanted to buy the cheapest ST GSM phone and put that SIM in the new NET10 phone and activate it. Could this work since they are both Tracfone devices?

    Won`t work. You cannot activate a Net10 phone with ST service. The activation process initially looks at the Phones IMEI number to varify it is a ST phone.

    The 900 is available in these two ST market areas (which you could order from) but you would have to varify that T-Mobile service is satisfactory in your area, because both markets are for T-Mobile SIM`s/service. The 900 is more expensive thru ST. What is your reason for choosing the ST 30 day plans over the Net10 30 day plans?
