    straight talk: any phone?

    i'm an IT lover.... never owned a cell phone

    when i called straight talk and talked to them, they basically told me that any phone that you can put a sim card in will work with straight talk... is this the case?

    i'm looking to either buy the nokia lumia 928 unlocked or the samsung galaxy s4 unlocked and then put straight talk on it... just want to know are there any issues i should be aware of? am i able to pretty much acquire any phone and then get straight talk on it?

    ty for all the advice on this site

    not any phone will work they dont sell att sims. youtube push email and social tools like facebook will get you in trouble. read some posts before buying your first phone.

    I'm using a Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy Fascinate SCH I500. This is a CDMA phone and uses Verizon towers, which means you need no sim card. My Son flashed it to straight talk and this phone works great. Don't know about any others.

    Switched two ATT HTC One's over to ST. You can still get the sim cards off ebay/amazon. I got one from each site.

    hate to burst your bubble, but once straight talk finds out that you are using a flashed on their network they will shut it off.

    you can bring your own verizon phone as long as it doesn't have LTE, 3G and older phones only, and no cdma iphones are allowed.
