Once you have found the phone that suits you, head over to Straight Talk and buy your Straight Talk SIM!

Buying a New or Used Phone for Straight Talk SIM Bring Your Own Phone

If you are looking to get a phone for use with Straight Talk’s Bring Your Own Phone program, here’s what I would recommend:

Your best bet is going to be to look for a true unlocked phone, one that was unlocked from the beginning.  Use any of the links above to find unlocked versions of those phones.

However – you may also be able to save some money by buying a used, locked phone from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint.  Only buy a locked phone on these carriers, any other locked phone will not work!

    So i have a straight talk iphine cellphone , can i take my tmobile sig card and put it in the phone? Wilk it work regularly or will i have to call tmobile?

  2. Benjamin says:

    I was wondering if a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 SM-P607T 32GB, Wi-Fi + 4G (T-Mobile) would work? It is a smartphone tablet (phablet) so I am not sure…

  3. Ken says:

    I currently have straight talks unlimited prepaid plan with a zte locked phone that runs on at&t towers I think or maybe Verizon towers. Can I take my sim card out of it and put it in an unlocked compatible phone and will it surf off other towers where I currently can not.

    • I belive the SIM is pinned to a specific network or set of networks, so it should work the same in another phone, unless that phone has additional bands that the SIM & carrier can take advantage of.

  4. Shay says:

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge plus through Sprint. The Straight Talk website said it won’t work (not compatible). Although I see u have the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge listed, will the plus work too? Or what do I have to do? I’m thinking about just buying the sprint CDMA kit, it does take a nano SIM. Please answer asap, thanks!

  5. Nicole says:

    I have a Samsung Grand Prime cellphone. I bought it originally already unlocked brand new. I’m currently with Viaero wireless but wanting to switch to straight talk. Will my phone work just fine if I switch over since it was already an unlocked phone?
