So I recently bought a Samsung mega 6.3 for us cellular, however now my parents want to jump ship to the Straight Talk $45 Unlimited plan.. Is it possible to just buy the activation sim card for the straight talk service and put it in the mega and be good to go..? or is that just too easy?
anyway to flash the phone to the gsm network. or would my best bet be to sell the us cellular phone and then buy an unlocked tmobile/att samsung mega on gsm network..?
http://www.isu.edu (Idaho State University)
the area is western wisconsin. does anyone know if if straight talk uses cdma in that area?
when i enter my meid from my us cellular on http://stbyop.com/straighttalk/ it says its compatible, however it also says some phones still may not work.. can anyone help?
Mod note: Again, your best bet would be to visit the Stright Talk forum here on HoFo, which can be found at http://www.howardforums.com/forumdis...-Straight-Talk. In light of that, I'm moving this thread there, and leaving an expiring redirect here, so you can still find your thread.
you can flash it to straight talk, i know a guy that did my us cellular note 2, its only 3g though :/
