Question

What does it mean when my phone says, "SIM card invalid?"

I'm new to straight talk so I don't really know what I'm doing yet. Do I have to activate the card and the phone? Will that make the SIM card valid?

Assuming that you've just taken the phone out of the box and haven't yet activated it, yes, I'm thinking that's the reason why you are getting that message.

Inside the box there should be what's called an "activation card." It's a card that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to activate the phone along with the numbers needed to give Straight Talk at the time of activation ...MEID or serial number, etc.

If you do not have a "service card" (the $45 card the provides service), don't worry about it as you can purchase the first month of service at the time of activation by giving a credit or debit card number.

At activation, you will be asked if you want a new number for the phone or if you want to port your current number ...or one that you are currently using with an old cell phone.

If you want to "port" your old number, you should be prepared to give Straight Talk your:

1. Your contact Information as it is registered with your current service provider including the ZIP Code.

2. Your account number with your current provider.

3. The PIN or password to your account at your current provider.

Make sure you do not cancel your current service before activating with Straight Talk as having current service is a requirement for porting.

You can activate either online or by calling a Straight Talk rep. Most find it easier just to call a rep since they have dedicated reps that do nothing but phone activations so they know exactly what to do in what order. It's just that they're sometimes difficult to understand as they are at an overseas call center.

I had trouble receiving picture txts from my wife's iphone 5s. Enabling cellular data on the iphone fixed the problem. I've read about people having to call customer service a couple times to get someone that knows how to get it working if it is a problem with how your Straight Talk account is set up.

Tracphone? Technically yes since Tracphone just uses ATT's towers. But you CAN NOT connect this with Tracphone. Maybe through crazy software hacking but that isn't really a safe option.

I have searched through my phone and did not see an option. There should be apps within the Windows Store that allow you to block people.

It shouldn't even have to be unlocked. This phone has ATT bands included already. If you buy this phone and use Straight Talk it WILL be connected to ATT since Straight Talk just leases their towers. So you shouldn't have a problem taking this phone straight to ATT and getting it hooked up.
