    T-Mobile Roaming on Straight Talk to AT&T

    Can anyone clarify if this works? I'm interested in acquiring the new G2X and using it on AT&T's edge network. I was wondering if they let you fall back and if there are any stipulations.

    Straight Talk does not roam in markets where they have GSM service. Depending upon the phone and SIM card, you will be restricted to whatever carrier Straight Talk uses for that phone. If you go to an area where Straight Talk has no GSM service, you may be able to roam on whatever GSM carrier is present in that area.

    Service on the GSM Network. If your Straight Talk Service is on the GSM network, your Straight Talk Wireless phone may roam when you are outside of the Straight Talk GSM network coverage area. When your Straight Talk GSM phone is roaming, Voice and SMS messaging will continue to be available to you at no additional charge. Mobile Web Services access will not be available while you are roaming outside of the Straight Talk GSM Network coverage area. When your GSM Straight Talk Phone is roaming, an indicator light on your handset may display the word "Roam" or "RM" on the screen while the phone is not in use.

    Awesome, do they charge for excessive roaming?

    Roaming minutes cost Trac more than primary provider minutes. If you are roaming most of the time you will hear from ST, for a change of provider/phone or termination of service.
