    Can I use a ST unlimited sim in a Net10 ZTE Merit ?

    Is it possible activate a Net10 branded ZTE Merit on Straight Talk with a ST BOYP sim? I would rather go with Straight Talk so I can buy the 90 day PINs . - Thanks

    This would be interesting to try. The SIMs used by NET10 BYOP look identical to ST BYOP to me but its possible theres additional programming on them that differentiates between the sub-brands.

    A ST rep has just told me that it cannot be done. I will just activate the phone on Net10 and use the callingmart pins.

    I am pretty sure the rep didn't know what they were talking about (as per usual with these clowns). I have a Straight Talk ZTE Merit and it came with a "P" SIM, meaning the unlocked SIM. I'd be willing to bet it can be done, but I could be wrong...

    Actually, the net10 version is available on Black Friday somewhere for very cheap. This may be the reason for them asking. Can't remember where, maybe dollar general?

    Yeah, now if it would work, $29 for a backup android that could be used on ST, that would be a good deal.

    This is from the Straight Talk website on using your own GSM telephone with the Straight Talk stand alone SIM card:
    No Refunds will be issued for this SIM Card or Service Card purchases. You will need a compatible GSM AT&T or T-Mobile phone. You may also use an Unlocked GSM phone compatible with AT&T or T-Mobile. This program/offering does not work with Straight Talk, TracFone, NET10, SafeLink, BlackBerry and/or CDMA phones. To Activate your service, you will need a Service Card. You may purchase a Service Card with a Debit card or Credit card. APN (Access Point Name) data settings must be updated on your phone. 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 will need to Jailbreak* your iPhone in order to update your MMS settings. *Search “Jailbreak iPhone” on-line for more information.

    Net10 ZTE Merit works with BYOD sim

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the ZTE Merit from Net10 that is on sale today for $29 at Family Dollar does work with BYOD SIM card from Straight Talk. I tried two different sims in it and both worked with no problem. I dont know if it made a difference or not but the first time I powered the phone on I had the BYOD SIM already in the phone. So if you need a cheap backup this would be it. It is Android and has 5 mp camera.
