    My Straight Talk BYOD Sim Kit Walmart Unboxing

    Hello all,
    Would just like to show you my recent purchase from Walmart. That's right, this is a BYOD SIM Kit from Straight Talk. Making its way through Walmart stores nationwide.

    First off,
    The package is $59.98. This includes three (yes, 3 sim cards), and a $45 activation card.
    The package includes:
    1 x AT&T Sim Card
    1 x AT&T Micro Sim Card
    1 x T-Mobile Sim Card
    All have different serial numbers, and can each be activated separately.

    Next, Pictures:

    .

    Interesting. I knew it included more than one sim, but thought that was so it would fit whatever device you had. However, I would have guessed only one of the sims could be used at a time. That is, you couldn't give one to a friend/relative to activate a ST account while you had one of the these SIMs on your account.

    Hmmm... So, really the sims are $5 each (x3) + $45 for first month of service, instead of being the "normal" $15 each.

    I like that they included a T-Mobile sim along with the AT&T sims.

    Probably to prevent idiots from buying the wrong SIM card and demanding a refund when it doesn't work.

    I was kind of shocked when I saw the T-Mobile sim in there. The box said it included a SIM and a Micro Sim, I thought it was only AT&T. I also thought that the SIM had cut outs that turned into a micro-sim, instead of two individual AT&T ones.

    or to be able to give entire kit as gift to friend/relative to get them off post-paid phone addiction.

    "There's a sim in here that WILL work on the GSM phone of your choice, and I've even paid the first month's bill for you!"

    Now, no one has any excuses: "I don't trust ordering from a website without seeing what I'm getting", etc.

    This move has been in the works for a while and is the next step in the BYOP program. A lot of people didn't even know about ST's BYOP because the first few months you could only order from StraightTalkSIM.com. Recently they added ST "AT&T" sim and micro-SIM cards to Walmart.com, and are rolling out these all-in-one kits to actual Wal-Mart stores. A friend of mine saw one of these weeks ago at his store.

    Have you verified that you can actually activate all three independently? IE When you activate one, the other two are somehow blocked in their system for activation?

    If not that can work out quite well, buy one for the iHomer in the family (there's always one) and use the other for Android.. and give the little one who has the unlocked feature phone the TMobile one. LOL
    Go GSM! Switch phones on demand.

    Any way to purchase this kit online? I can't find it at my local stores.
    Not bad for a free unlimited line from Sprint!

    Yep! Also activated the T-Mobile one today(with a new number)! Works without a hitch!

    Plus bare in mind, for those in families with multiple iPhones -- you can trim down the normal size SIMs to micro sim size. Pretty neat.

    You know, that's not too bad of an idea. It would save me the time of trying to find them...probably won't be able to get one until I go back to Minnesota.

    Which makes no sense, because the AT&T SIM works perfectly here, and they're the only ones that would get reliable signal (Verizon has no towers in the area, Sprint has no presence, and T-Mobile's bands are used by i wireless.)

    Went to my Walmart today looking for this. Unfortunately, not there. I ordered the micro sim for my husband's new iphone (4s). Being an Android person, I hadn't realized that (minus some hactivation attempts using 911 which I will not try) you could do NOTHING with the iphone until a sim was inserted. That kit would have been IDEAL! Next step will be to see if the phone will activate without the sim being activated. Probably not. Can't port until October 2.

    More Androids iuse SIMs than iPhones. I'm an Android person and my phone (Galaxy Nexus) uses a SIM card...

    GSM is the world standard, more popular than CDMA. But a couple of months ago I came from an LTE/CDMA carrier with my previous Android, so I had to face a learning curve as well.
