    That phone is for Verizon. There is no work around to get a Verizon phone on to ST. What you may have read about is using an AT&T GSM phone with the unlocked SIM removed from one of the two ST Nokia Smartphones (that you have purchased for $170).

    Yes it is possible, but not legit. If caught ST would probably wait till right after he had added airtime to termimate his service.

    My friend was stupid and flashed his Thunderbolt over to ST, because the AT&T/T-Mobile option "was not good enough". Within 1 hour of use (downloading some apps, a speed test, a search on a webpage, and syncing around 5 Social/Google/Mail accounts), he got a call.

    Straight Talk is paying up the *** to use Verizon's network, just like every other MVNO that uses Verizon's network. You can probably imagine why he got flagged almost immediately.
    You can either eat the two peanuts I gave to you, or crush them..

    - I'm bout to show a city slicker how to kick it in the sticks -

    That is exactly why ST is now attempting to make it harder to acquire their CDMA phones/service unless CDMA is the ONLY option for service. They are not eliminating CDMA they are just rationing it. Tracfone and Net 10 have always operated this way, now ST can do the same since they took on GSM. Amazing it has taken them so long.

    What about using GPS over ST? Is that too much data coming in? Other than that I wouldn't be doing anything but calling and texting.

    Oh well I guess I'll just flash my phone back since I can't get voice working anyways.

    You will be fine with GPS. If you are talking about the Google Nav, then that only takes 200KB's per 30 miles. That is what I mainly use my phone for as well.

    Unless they are to watch everyone constantly they have to look at short term useage and project it out for the whole 30 days. Short term Pandora would probably project too high.

    Totally Possible

    Yes it is possible to do this. Also, with straight talk releasing an android phone in the next couple of weeks I doubt data usage is going to be monitored all that closely.

    Nokia GPS are using 1-2 MB on 6.5 miles trip and 3-4 on 14 miles. GPS navigation using "yards" instead of "feet" even with US voice navigation.

    A yard is simply three feet. Both are imperial measurements. Metric would be meters.
