    All of Straight Talk phones even Android ones are locked to Straight Talk, but I have seen people rebrand them to use them on another Tracfone company tho. So I am not sure where you that Straight Talk Android phones was unlocked.

    Greed & necessity.
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.
