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!
