    Switching sims in straight talk phones?

    Is it possible to take a sim card out of a ST that works in my area and put it in one that didn't? Would it work in my area?

    Should work, may need APN configured, as noted on their website.

    Just FYI you CANNOT swap sims from the cheap phones at all. Only the E5, E71, and Nokia 6790 can be swapped to other phones.

    if the phone is one that straight talk sells then no, the sim is locked to that phone. you would need to buy the byod sim.
    the only phones that have sims that can be moved to different phones are the three nokia smartphones
    nokia e71, nokia 6790, and nokia e5.

    Why did you just repeat what I said earlier?
