    lte

    I don't need LTE to work. 3g is fine. It seems the pantech burst uses a micro sim card slot that has an 8 pin grid instead of the usual 6. I had my straight talk sim cut to fit but the phone would not detect it. I was wondering if I order the straight talk actual micro similar card, if it would me compatible with the 8 pin slot

    So with a T-Mobile 3g phone + T-Mobile Straight Talk sim, can you get 3g data? I thought somebody in the Not a Loophole thread said that T-Mobile phones were limited to EDGE.

    You'll get 3G when you're on a TMobile tower. TMobile and AT&T use different frequencies for 3G so, except for the rare phone, one can't get 3G from the other's towers. Nothing to do with the SIMs.
