    Does straight talk have roaming?

    Does straight talk allow roaming with there phones? Say if I get an ATT straight talk phone will it also be able to use Tmobile coverage if there is no att signal there?

    There's roaming but it doesn't work like that. You can only roam in certain areas where Straight Talk has allowed it.

    And there aren't that many areas whe AT&T doesn't have coverage but tmobile does. Now, the other way around, yes, but AT&T's coverage is so much more extensive than tmobile's.

    where are you going to roam with an ATT SIM? There is zero reason to get a T-mo SIM. And if you need T-Mo coverage I would suggest going with T-mo plan directly.

    Many areas actually. Compare the AT&T GoPhone coverage with Straight Talk GSM-A coverage. There are gaping holes on GoPhone coverage due to it being native coverage only.

    They have an AT&T and a T-Mobile SIM, which uses one of the networks for majority of its coverage. Tracfone (ST/Net10) has contracts with about a dozen GSM providers in the US, which is how they provide 'roaming'.

    There is a spot by me where ATT loses coverage and doesn't roam with ATT, but Tmobile works 4 bars with 2g

    Tmobile only gets 2g coverage by me for about 40 minutes in every direction and only roaming partners in a UW college town 20 minutes away. They're not an option even with spotty ATT coverage where roaming doesn't appear to work in some places.

    Because there's roaming and most places people travel to are covered. I have seen uncovered areas, such as while driving to Yosemite national park.
