    Move Sim to different phone?

    Is it possible to take the ST ATT sim out of one phone and put it into another GSM phone and work? Does anything have to be done with ST to do this? Just curious.

    As long as it is an ATT phone you should be good to go.
    Just set up the APN again on the new phone.
    No need to contact ST.

    you can, if the sim is from one of the three nokia smartphones (E71,E5.and 6790) the rest of the phones that straight talk sells, the sim is locked to the phone and won't work in any other phone.

    That is exactly what it is - an ATT compatible ST BYOD sim purchased from ST.

    Someone on here said they liked to swap phones often, like almost daily, amongst a handful of cell phones they own. SIM went into different phones. They received a call from Straight Talk asking WHY they were switching so much, just making sure there was no fraud attempt going on or something.

    But yeah, you can do it without changing anything.

    The call from ST was because the person was rotating the SIM among several phones. Even then, the person was able to do it with no problem. Straight Talk just wanted to know why, as they considered that strange behavior.

    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.
