Phones that will work with Straight Talk SIM / Bring Your Own Phone

Below is a list of some of the most popular phones on the market that will work with Straight Talk SIM.  Before we get to that, here’s the basic criteria for a phone to work on Straight Talk SIM Bring Your Own Phone:

  • (1) Phone must be a GSM or CDMA phone with one of the major carriers.
    • If your phone was under a regular contract with AT&T, Cingular, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint it should work.
    • If your phone was originally purchased for a prepaid plan on carrier that is not AT&T, Cingular, T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint – there is a chance it may work, if the phone is unlocked.  However, it may not work. Consider purchasing a low-cost phone from Straight Talk if you are in this situation.

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!

      • stef says:

        I currently have a straighttalk phone and already have a straight talk plan. I went to best buy and picked out an LG stylo by boost mobile after the salesman told me it was compatible with straight talk. After reading a lot on the internet about this phone possibly not being compatible i am confused. If i buy a straight talk sim card wil i b able to transfer my straight talk number to this phone on the byob program?

        • Unless the phone is unlocked, I do not believe that it works. But, maybe I am wrong, as things change. How about calling Straight Talk and asking them, and then report back what they say here. That would be very helpful for others!

    Hey there, I apologize if this seems terribly obvious as I’m a bit behind on the technology front. . .
    My existing phone has completely died. I’m about to purchase an unlocked Xperia Z via your link, and I intend to join straight talk through their byop sim option. Here’s my ignorance. Can I transfer my phone number from my past phone (which no longer even turns on)? I don’t have anything backed up, I’m sure I’ll lose my contacts and all. but as far as my number goes? Or would registering the phone provide the number?
