    I would chose a nexus 4 "IF" you don't need a micro sd card. I'm a huge picture person so I had to throw in a 32gb card into my i747. That phone is unlocked at 350$, and it's a nice phone.

    Re: [LIST] Good smartphones to get with Straight Talk sim

    I'd say the the only major downfall of the N4 is no microsd card slot, but if you can deal with that its the most affordable unlocked phone running the latest android software with this year's specs.

    Question Where Do I get a Micro SIM card for Google Nexus 4?

    OK, I purchased the 16gb Google Nexus 4 from Google Play for $349 ($380 with tax), but when I went to Walmart to get a SIM card they told me that I had to order it online from Straight Talk. I went to the Straight Talk SIM Card program section and was given three choices:

    Please choose the type of phone you have:

    1) Phone is a CDMA (i.e. Verizon, Sprint, Metro PCS), TracFone, SafeLink, NET10, Straight Talk, Telcel America or BlackBerry

    2) Unlocked GSM Phone (Phone must operate in 850 and 1900 MHz bands)

    3) T-Mobile Compatible Phone

    Option One said this when clicked: "This program is not available with CDMA (i.e. Verizon, Sprint, Metro PCS), TracFone, SafeLink, NET10, Straight Talk or BlackBerry phones."

    Option Two asked for my zip then had a page that said this:

    "To Activate your service, you will need a Service PIN. You may purchase a Service PIN with a Debit card or Credit card.

    You will need a compatible GSM T-Mobile phone. You may also use an Unlocked GSM phone compatible with T-Mobile.

    This program/offering does not work with Straight Talk, TracFone, NET10, SafeLink, Telcel America, BlackBerry and/or CDMA phones (i.e. Sprint, Metro PCS).

    No Refunds will be issued for this SIM Card or Airtime PIN purchases.

    In order for your phone's INTERNET and MULTIMEDIA/PICTURE MESSAGING to work, you will need to update your phone’s APN (Access Point Name) settings by following a few simple steps. These settings can be found on our website at apn.straighttalksim.com.

    Updating your APN settings does not guarantee MMS (Multimedia/Picture Messaging) will work. MMS is dependent upon your phone model’s limitations.

    If you have an iPhone and you would like to use MMS, you may need to make further changes to your iPhone in order to update your MMS settings. You may search online for more information."

    and then on the next page said this:

    "Straight talk SIM Card will only work with an AT&T or T-mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone. To activate your service, you will need a Straight Talk Unlimited 30-day Service Plan Card for activation. Some data services may not be available with all wireless devices. Blackberrys and branded TracFone, SafeLink, NET10 or Straight Talk phones will not work with this program. In order for your phone‘s data services to work, you must update your APN data settings, also called the Access Point Name. SIM Card and Service Plan are not refundable.

    Free Ground Shipping when you buy a SIM or SIM bundle (SIM + airtime card) $14.99 or greater. This offer is only available with the purchase of any SIM and/or SIM & airtime card bundle through March 31, 2013.

    All offers are subject to change or discontinuance by STRAIGHT TALK Wireless, Inc. at any time without further notice. Straight Talk Wireless, Inc. reserves the right to limit quantities and to reject or cancel orders in its sole discretion. Product is not for resale or distribution.

    Signature is required for FedEx 3 day Ground & Overnight delivery method."


    Option Three asked for my zip code, then repeated the same information that option two had and then had this on the next page:

    T-Mobile Compatible SIM Card $14.99

    Use your own compatible or unlocked GSM phone on America's best nationwide networks. Select a SIM or SIM bundle to get Unlimited Data, Talk & Text. It's that easy.

    DETAILS

    The final page, which was the ONLY OPTION that would allow me to order anything gave three options:

    1) T-Mobile Compatible SIM Card

    "SIM Only I will like to purchase a SIM Card without an Unlimited* Service Plan Card. I am an existing customer and already have an Unlimited* Service Plan or I am enrolled in Auto-Refill. An Unlimited* Service Plan card is required for activation."

    2) T-Mobile Compatible SIM + Unlimited* Plan $59.99

    Long story longer, I purchased option one, the SIM card only, but when it arrived it was NOT a micro SIM card which is what the Google Nexus 4 requires. Where do I get the correct micro SIM card to allow me to use my GN 4 with Straight Talk, as has been indicated multiple times on this thread to be possible? Thanking you in advance.

    Straight Talk doesn't offer micro sims for T-Mobile. Take your sim card to a T-Mobile store and have them cut it for you.

    How so? My first smartphone was a Samsung Galaxy Precedent in September 2011 and I loved it for nearly a year before I realized it was grossly under-powered in the memory department. I live in a basement apartment, but reception is fine if I stand near the patio window. We have a cell phone tower right across the street. I enjoy paying only $45 for unlimited everything, while my friends dish out $120 to $200 for Verizon and ATT and do nothing but whine about them. I think Straight Talk will be fine for as long as I can convince myself it's good enough and I have feeling it's about to get a lot better with the GN 4. ;-)

    Just cut it down yourself but be careful not to cut the gold plate on the card. If your phone has a sim tray like the iPhone where it HAS to fit perfectly then do this at your own discretion but if it's the classic "slide in tray" then go ahead and cut it down little by little till it fits then slide it in carefully trying to align it with the connecters on the phone. Done this a million times with Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, and Huawei branded phones. Even do this a lot for iPhones.

    It was easier and quicker for me to take it to the T-Mobile store and have them use their sim cutter. Free.

    I already know the answer myself, but went just to take a look at the link. Got this:

    What's that all about? I figure this is FAQ type info that everybody needs to see or you wouldn't have put it out there....
