Straight Talk, the prepaid cell phone service owned by TracFone and sold by Walmart offers a new way to take advantage of their services: Bring Your Own Phone. Now, you can purchase a Straight Talk SIM card for $14.95 and use it on any compatible or unlocked GSM phone. GSM phones are those used by AT&T and T-Mobile. (Verizon Wireless and Sprint phones will not work with this program since they do not utilize SIM cards.)
The SIM card costs $14.99 and includes free shipping. Both regular and micro SIM cards are available. Your monthly cost is $45.00 for 30 days of unlimited talk, text, and data. This is the same price as an unlimited plan with a phone purchased from Straight Talk. Keep your phone and your phone number while saving money every month!
The Straight Talk SIM card will only work with an AT&T or T-Mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone. To activate your service, you will need a Straight Talk Unlimited 30-day Service Plan card or credit card. Some data services may not be available with all wireless devices. BlackBerrys and branded TracFone, SafeLink, NET10 or Straight Talk phones will not work with this program. In order for your phone’s data services to work, you must update your APN data settings, also called the Access Point Name. SIM card and Service Plan are not refundable.
If you have a phone you like, this is a great deal. Bring your own phone, get a SIM card for $14.99, and enjoy unlimited talk, text, and web from Straight Talk for only $45 per month!
