Yes, you can use an iPhone 4s, but there are some restrictions if you bought the phone from AT&T. Your phone can't be under contract with AT&T and even after the contract ends they may have to release the phone for use with another company. Check here to see if your phone is eligible.

Yes, you should be able to use an AT&T iPhone 4S at Straight Talk.

You will need a Straight Talk SIM card. Walmart is currently selling the Straight Talk AT&T standard/micro SIM card kit for $3.99 (copy-and-paste):

Straight talk uses the Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile networks. Which network you actually use is determined by which phone you buy and/or which SIM card you buy.

answer 2
Straight Talk uses all four of the major networks in the U.S. (Verizon, AT&T, Spirnt, or T-Mobile). HOWEVER, an individual phone on Straight Talk service will only use ONE of those networks.

The phone models Straight Talk sell are predetermined to use ONE of those networks. Straight Talk makes that decision. It will use that network anywhere you travel in the U.S. for the life of the phone while it is on Straight Talk service.

If you are using BYOP, the same applies. You will use a compatible network which will work with the phone you are bringing to Straight Talk and your phone will then use ONLY THAT NETWORK no matter where you travel in the U.S. and for as long as the phone is on Straight Talk service.

Straight Talk phones will NOT bounce around using different networks in different parts of the country (contrary to popular opinion). Straight Talk phones using Verizon or Sprint will use NATIVE coverage only (which means no roaming ...service will be on Verizon-owned towers ONLY or Sprint-owned towers ONLY depending on which you are using). If using AT&T or T-Mobile on a Straight Talk phone, you may or may not have limited roaming privileges in certain parts of the country on compatible GSM networks.

My understanding from those I've talked to that have used Straight Talk in both Puerto Rico and USVI is that if you are using a Straight Talk phone that uses AT&T or T-Mobile's network (and possibly Sprint but I've not talked to anybody using Straight Talk with Sprint using their phone in USVI) that you will have coverage. Straight Talk phones using Verizon will definitely NOT have coverage as there is no native Verizon coverage on USVI.

If you ask a Straight Talk representative, you will get varied responses as the "canned" response is that "Straight Talk phones can only make and receive calls within the continental United States" ...that statement in itself is wrong as Straight Talk does have some coverage in Hawaii and Alaska. However, some Straight Talk reps that do not read off the script and are in-the-know will tell you that "some phones will be able to make and receive calls in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and USVI depending on the network your Straight Talk phone uses."

I am believing the former response ...that you will have coverage and be able to use your phone in USVI if your Straight Talk phone is using either the AT&T or T-Mobile network. One supporting factor is that if you put a USVI zip code in the coverage locator of any Straight Talk phone that uses AT&T, it will indicate that you have coverage.

My opinion only from what I've heard from others and my research. I do not have any first-hand experience.

Can I keep my cell phone number I have now when I change over to Straight Talk?

I now have Verizon but would like to lower my cost for cell phones. We would need to keep our Verizon number that we have now if we switched. Too many people have our number to change that.

answer 2
Yes, you can definitely keep you number. There is no extra charge associated with "porting" (transferring) your number.

One thing to keep in mind is that active service must be present to "port" a number. It is a requirement. Therefore, be sure not to cancel your Verizon Wireless service before activating with Straight Talk!

Straight Talk will initiate the "port" (or the phone number transfer procedure) at the time you activate service with them. Your Verizon service will automatically be terminated and disabled once the "port" is completed. Porting from Verizon usually will be very quick ...probably under 10-minutes.

Straight Talk will require the following information from you at the time of activation in order to port your phone number:

1. Your contact Information as it is registered with Verizon

2. Your account number at Verizon

3. Your PIN or password to your account at Verizon

This package should work well for you, it's prepaid, no contract and you can pick them up at any Walmart or purchase them by phone or internet. You don't have to get a phone with a sim card, but you can if you would like. You won't need anymore than this, it runs off of the Verizon (and others) network, so you get coverage pretty much anywhere (except in normal no coverage areas that you can't avoid).

Straight Talk has been a great option for me personally. You are able to buy a sim card if need, at least in my location you can so I'm sure any Walmart location would work. It is $45 for unlimited "everything". I have looked around at different cell phone plans and in my conclusion, prepaid straight talk will be worth it. Besides if you are traveling around the USA most likely you will easily find a Walmart anywhere if you were ever to require assistance. Hopefully this could be of a help. Also, straight talk offers service if anyone were to travel internationally for $60.

mcmatak, I'll give you my opinion on what to check and things to do if you plan to use your own phone with Straight Talk when you are in the U.S.

1. Your phone can't be locked down to a specific carrier (I'm not sure what your country has as protocol for locking cell phones). Make sure it's unlocked or you know for sure it can be unlocked.

2. Check to see if your phone supports the 850 and 1900Mhz GSM bands.

3. Yes, you will need to separately purchase a SIM card kit from Straight Talk. The SIM card is currently selling for $3.99 at Walmart. It is probably best to choose the Straight Talk AT&T SIM card as it generally will have better coverage compared to T-Mobile (AT&T and T-Mobile are the only GSM networks used in the U.S.).

4. Yes, you will also need to purchase this plan/service which will provide 30-days of service. If you need more than 30-days, you will have to spend another $45 as 30-days will be the smallest increment of service available for purchase.

5. If you phone can't be unlocked ...or it isn't capable of using the 850 and 1900Mhz GSM bands, you can always purchase an inexpensive Straight Talk phone using either GSM or CDMA just to use for the month that you're here. A Straight Talk CDMA phone will not need a separate SIM card purchased and if choosing one that uses the Verizon network, will have excellent coverage in the continental U.S. and Hawaii (it will not have coverage in Alaska, however) as Verizon is considered by most to have the best coverage in the U.S. (excluding Alaska).

There is a very inexpensive but feature packed CDMA smartphone using Verizon that Walmart/Straight Talk is currently selling for $29.88 (U.S. dollars). It will not need to have a separate SIM card purchased and can essentially be "thrown away" after you are finished using it because it's so inexpensive. If you purchase this phone, your total cost for the month (30-days) that you are in the U.S. will be $29.88 + $45 = $74.88 plus tax for the 30-days. However, you'd want to have your own camera as this phone only has a 3 MP camera with no auto-focus or LED flash. To see the phone, go here (copy-and-paste):

Where do I get a Straight Talk sim car for an iPhone 4 not connected to a provider like AT&T?

We have AT&T service now and would like to get away from them since their coverage in our area is limited. Thought by using Straight Talk we would have better service.

First you have to unlock your phone and buy the straight talk package that I believe comes with the sim card and includes the first months service card.

Theo, my understanding is that the iPhone 4 does not have a dual chip as the 4S. Therefore, if you unlock your phone to use with a Straight Talk SIM card, you'll still be using the AT&T network. Or, you may be able to use it with a Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM card. You can't use it with a CDMA network (Verizon or Sprint) at Straight Talk.

If you think that T-Mobile coverage may be better than AT&T, then you may want to consider researching using a Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM card. Otherwise, you will still get basically the same coverage that you are now using a Straight Talk AT&T SIM card that you are with going through AT&T directly.

My brother actually just went through this with a phone he bought from a friend, it was a Samsung Galaxy 3 and it was bought from AT&T. My brother had the option to switch over to Straight Talk. If he went that route he had to first unlock the phone and then buy the straight talk package that is for switching over to straight talk, that I believe comes with the SIM card for a first month prepaid card.

If you have a T-Mobile phone: Buy the T-Mobile Kit
If you have a Verizon phone: It's tricky, and prob easier to just buy one of theirs...

Since it's difficult for any of us here to give you a definite yes or no answer (there are many factors that play into the answer), the best thing to do is to go to the Straight Talk BYOP website and go through the process that determines if the phone is compatible to bring to Straight Talk service.
