You can try calling straight talk and telling them that the service from them in your area is too weak and that you need to know what if anything you can do to transfer the phone to the WAL-MART Plan's cell provider. You MIGHT get lucky (sometimes pleading technology illiterate and being really nice can get you slightly further) but from past experience I'd say I'm sorry but unless you want to buy another phone that's on that network you are probably stuck with Straight Talk. GOOD LUCK!!
You can try contacting Wal-Mart's Main Head Office and explain to them that when you bought the phone that you specifically and plainly asked the associate if the iphone 6 was able to be activated using an AT&T sim card. In response to your question the associate assured you that YES, that the iPhone 6 even though sold as a STRAIGHT TALK phone was UNLOCKED and as such would work with in this case AT&T Prepaid (as that was your only reason you purchased the phone).
I bought a iphone 7 from Best Buy unlocked. I used NET10/Straight talk and it is now locked with Straight talk. After 12 months of service, I wanted to switch to AT&T but couldn't because they would not unlock my phone. I filed a claim with FCC and they had a Straight talk corporate office person call me and they DID unlock my phone!
Does anyone know if AT&T will work on a Straight talk sold iPhone 5S Straight talk is a MVNO of AT&T and I can put a AT&T sim in it without the phone rejecting it but any other SIMS and it will say it isn't supported under the activation policy. I don't use AT&T so I don't have an active AT&T sim to test cellular. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried it and it worked
I bought a new Samsung Galaxy A10E from someone but they lost the aim that came with the phone. Its never been activated thru any carrier an I would like to use at&T, I bought the straight talk keep your own phone kit an I don't know what or how to activate it to at &T can someone tell me what I need to do
I can help but I need to know what carrier it came from. Is it a straight talk or another carrier. If you don't know look in your apps menu and you should see some apps that come preloaded such as a Straight talk account app or a at&t app. Should be something there to tell you what carrier it came from.
If you buy the iPhone 5S from Walmart it will be locked to Straight Talk. There is a reason that they were offering those phones at a discounted price, at least at that time. You get them cheaper because you can only use them on Straight Talk. This phone would have to be unlocked before it could be used on another network. No matter what the person commenting before stated, not all phones can be unlocked. Look at it this way. You can go from AT&T or Verizon to Straight Talk. But if you have a straight talk phone you can't go the other direction.
You won't see any Sim card on a CDMA network before 4G speed's were offered. After Verizon (Altell), and Sprint started offering 4G speed's all phones that they sold come with a Sim card port. That's why Verizon and AT&T were able to use the same phone starting with the iphone 5.
It will not work as it is locked to straght talk . But if the phone has been in service on straight talk for one full year you can call them to unlock it for you then it will work. You must meet the one year in service requirement for Straight talk to unlock any of their phones this includes NET10 Wireless, Total Wireless, Safelink Wireless, Straight Talk, Telcel América, SIMPLE Mobile, Page Plus Cellular, GoSmart Mobile, and Walmart Family Mobile.
Of course, the biggest question is not whether a SIM card will fit into my phone. The real question is whether the service is worth the money. To setup the service, you will need a GSM (AT&T) iPhone, and it does not even need to be unlocked. To be sure, we talked to Straight Talk. It provided the following statement:
Both Straight Talk Wireless and Tracfone offer affordable, no-contract phone plans. If savings are your top priority, Tracfone has a range of plans between $20-30 that include talk, text, and 1-3 GB of data. 59ce067264
