    Straight Talk Bring Your Own GSM Phone Program (Not a Loophole)

    StraightTalk Jhonally
    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.

    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?

    Holy crap. Hell has finally frozen over. Never thought I would see an American Movil company offer BYOD.

    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.

    Why be picky? Just be happy it happened. Period. This is like the fall of Qadaffi. But better.

    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.

    Secondary: iPhone 4 & Optimus Dynamic II: TracFone (Verizon); Galaxy Epic: RingPlus (Sprint)

    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.
