    Can you port from straight Talk to net 10?

    I have found I can get net 10 service cards cheaper than straight Talk...
    Go GSM! Switch phones on demand.

    Yes you could port your phone number very quickly, but not the remaining service. If you are using a BYOD SIM, and want to be the first to try, ask if you can use the ST SIM with Net10 airtime. The SIM`s are identical but the S/N discrepencies would probably make it impossible for them to get around.

    Thanks. I figured you'd need to do it on a month end and get a new SIM. Wish I had done the math before. A Straight Talk monthly plan (with no fake order address) is a little over $49 for me. While Net10 would actually be a little under $47 because they are often 7% off at CallingMart and you simply don't pay sales tax there (though I know you are supposed to submit use tax I guess after the fact). So the recoup cost on a $15 SIM is 8 months, not worth the hassle.

    I am planning to switch another line, but this time I think I'll go straight to Net 10. I'm assuming their $45 discounted auto-refill plan is taxed, which makes them exactly the same as Straight Talk in worst case, and better if I can get discounts off face value from anywhere else.

    Try here. Ask if he runs out very often.
