Hi Brandy. A new program will be releasing tomorrow (February 2nd) which will allow customers to bring an AT&T, T-Mobile GSM phone or an unlocked domestic GSM phone to Straight Talk or NET10 by simply buying a SIM card from us. In order to activate the service, you will need an Unlimited Airtime PIN or a credit card. This program will NOT work with Blackberry and branded Straight Talk, SafeLink, TracFone and NET10 phones. This will NOT work with CDMA phones as well. Thank you.https://www.facebook.com/StraightTal...50546495612569StraightTalk Jude Hi Brandy.

That's so cool, I can't even believe it! Thanks for the update silentjudge.
This is indeed good news, a page out of T-Mobile's prepaid book. No more Nokia E71 SIM swap trick

So with your own unlocked gsm phone, can you use any of the Net10 or Straight plans or just the unlimited ones? Also, will byod users be charged the same price per month or will there be some surcharge?
Is this for real? No way! America Movil going byod? Somebody pinch me!!
I thought Christmas was in December!
BYOD in the US prepaid arena just got turned upside down!
Holy crap. Hell has finally frozen over. Never thought I would see an American Movil company offer BYOD.
T-Mobile’s new marketing campaign for Vermont and Western New Hampshire:
“Try T-Mobile’s blazingly fast GPRS data network. We’re faster than iDEN and TDMA combined!”
Question is, though, which carrier's coverage do you get with this program? If it's t-mobiles, i'd rather stick with the sim swap method..

Unbelieveable. Hopefully coverage stays the same and no data throttling.

I woke up just to post this. Unbelievable.
Also if you read what the person said carefully, It would suggest you can be on AT&T or tmoble depending on your device. That is assuming they meant exactly what they typed.
Wow. All I can say is.. Wow. Interesting that they say you can use either an AT&T *or* T-Mobile phone, sounds like their SIM card will work in either despite being locked?
I haven't kept up with ST, but at what point do they consider unlimited, NOT unlimited? 1GB? 2GB? I used 2.2 GB last month on T-Mobile.
VERY interesting turn of events in the prepaid market though.
Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.
Primary: iPhone 6 64GB, Galaxy Note 3, Lumia 635: 5 lines, 3x $5 Android web, 1x $2.99 T-Zones, corp discount + $10/mo loyalty discount = $93/mo tax inclusive
Secondary: iPhone 4S & LG Ultimate 2: TracFone (Verizon)
Mobile Broadband: HP Stream 13 w/ T-Mobile 4G & iPad Mini Retina w/ T-Mobile 4G LTE ($10/mo for 5GB with hotspot)
Silentjudge states around 2gb with a safe limit of around 100 mb a day. However, considering that they are $10-15 less then an Att mvno w/2gb plans (Red Pocket/Jolt), it's a good deal. CS though of course sucks.
