    Is this a locked Straight Talk phone? Who gave you the unlock code?

    What is the purpose of the unlock code? The unlocking policy is uniform with all the Tracfone companies. Requires 12 months of continuous service to qualify. No idea why they would give you a code at Walmart. I would go back to Walmart and get some clarification.

    I'll take a shot. I think the OP is saying they bought a Straight Talk phone at Walmart. The OP contacted Straight Talk and they gave him the unlock code. OP has 3 weeks left on StraighTalk plan and is looking around for another carrier. Assume the 12 months was hit or they wouldn't give a code (?)
    If that's correct OP will first need a SIM from whomever they want to change to. Here's a link https://www.wikihow.com/Unlock-Andro...ght-Talk-Phone
    That's just my guess on what's being asked. OP can confirm or provide more info. I never unlocked anything so other then the link instructions maybe there's another way. I thought it was phone mfg. dependent too.

    The model of the phone may just change what the display shows. But if you read through it you'll need the SIM of another carrier first. Keeping your number will happen when you change carriers and "tell" them what you want to do.

    Like I said; unlocking is something I have no personal experience or knowledge in. Just found that link and thought it would help.

    Now knowing more clearly what you want to do someone that knows about unlocking should reply.

    Yes, the unlock process should come up when you install a "foreign" SIM.
    What carrier are you on now with Straight Talk?
    What model iPhone?

    You just have the wrong SIM card. A mistake when you bought the phone at Walmart. The carrier is always determined by the SIM. You can look at the SIM, or it's number is also listed in the iPhone in Settings > General > About > ICCID.

    Check the SIM ID printed on the SIM. The first six numbers of the ID determine the carrier:
    890126 = T-Mobile, 890141 = AT&T, 891480 = Verizon.
