Get the right SIM for your Apple iPhone / iPad

Straight Talk SIM in an iPhonePlacing a SIM card from another carrier allows you to use the power of your iPhone or iPad without the high monthly cost.  For example, Straight Talk SIM  sells both regular and micro-SIM cards so that you can use your iPhone or iPad with Straight Talk’s $45/month unlimited everything service.

Since some iPhones use regular SIM Cards and some don’t, be sure to order the correct type of SIM card for your iPhone or iPad when you place your order with Straight Talk SIM, Republic Wireless SIM, Net 10 SIM, or one of many other SIM card providers.
