We last updated this article on November 26, 2022 to bring you the latest and greatest information!

Bring your own phone to Straight Talk with Straight Talk SIM and save thousands on your cell phone bill.

Want to get unlimited talk, texting and data on Straight Talk or Net 10 for $45 a month?

You can keep your existing phone and take it to Straight Talk or Net 10 to get great service at a great price. You’ll still use the towers of AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint, but you’ll pay Straight Talk instead of your current carrier (even though you’re still using their towers).

Below we will tell you which phones you can use and which plans you can pick from.

Be sure to read the details, as just being on the list below is not good enough – your phone must also be unlocked or locked to postpaid Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile.

Also, if your phone is not on the list below it may still work if it is unlocked or locked to postpaid Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile. This is not an exhaustive list of all phones that work.

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!

Phones on these carriers will not work unless they are first unlocked:

Check Frequency Check if you have one of these types of phones, to verify that it will work on the network that you wish to use on Straight Talk.

  • what about a t-mobile motorola blur would that work if so does it need to be unlocked. i tried numerous times and nothing thanks

    • Jessica, Yes you should be able to use the AT&T Pantech Burst on Straight Talk SIM – no problem. See the links above for information on how to save on your SIM card purchase

  • I was wondering since my phone from att is still under contract, would I be able to get a straight talk sim card and use the straight talk plan for $45?

  • I have a droid x by motorola that was under contract with verizon. I really want to switch it to straight talk. Is it possible?

    • Terrell,

      I would avoid off-brand Chinese Android phones, as they are buggy and risky to use from a security perspective. However if they are unlocked they should work with Straight Talk SIM.

  • hey i have a att pantech 4 lte it has a sim card 4g will it work with straight talk and i live out in boston out in country . my daught has a straight talk bought from walmart works great but no sim card . my zip is 31626 can u tell me if it will work.

  • i was wanting to know if an htc vivid that isn’t unlocked for at&t needs to be unlocked in order to use it for straight talk? i am thinkin about buying one just wanted to make sure

  • I do not understand why a GSM Blackberry with all the right radio frequencies required here will not work on this network. Anybody know why that is?

  • I have a lg GX2 from tmobile and I would like to know if I get a sim card from straight talk Can i get service from straight talk?

  • Hi, I bought a new LG-E900h windows phone, I can call and text, but no web browsing…called tech support at Straight Talk, they said that there is no way to set the APN…little help please, really love a windows phone..

  • I have a older t-mobile samsung galaxy 2 side slide phone in excellent condition w/3 GB capability and 850/1900 frequency—-will a straight talk sim card work in that kind of phone?? the T-mobile galaxy 3 was on the list that would work and I think the only difference is 3 GB to 4 GB—-I’d like to use the phone, but refuse to go under contract again—-was with T-mobile for about 8 years and went over my minutes by 1 hour and it cost me $45 extra—- the same as ! month of unlimited straight talk—-need I say more, they lost a customer!—- would appreciate an answer to my question on my E-mail–thank you

  • Will the at&t pantech burst p9070 work with straight talk ??? I’ve read at other sites straight talks Sim card doesn’t fit?? Is this correct

    • Kimberly, The Pantech Burst should work fine with Straight Talk SIM. You may need to get a micro-sim if that is what the phone takes; you can find that out by taking out the current SIM, measuring it and looking up the specifications online.

      • I plan on buying this phone with the intentions of switching it to straight talk.I however already have a phone with straight talk and have paid my bill for this.So my question is if I already have a set up plan with straight talk which sim card do i need to buy for the fx stx 2the at&t compatible thats $14.96 or the at&t compatible sim w/$45 airtime card Bundle thats 54.96?

        • Thanks for your question. If you have a Straight Talk phone that you purchased a Straight Talk SIM For, I believe you can transfer the SIM by calling customer support. If you are trying to transfer the SIM from a regular Straight Talk phone, I don’t think that will work.

    • The LG A340 should work fine with Straight Talk SIM, however you might just consider getting a new phone from Straight Talk so you can use the $30 “All you need” plan. You might also want to check out Phone Bill Cut to look at all of your prepaid options.

  • I have been a straight talk customer for one year. I recently purchased an at&t pantech burst with straight talks SIM card program. I added all of the suggested APN settings into my phone, but for some reason now have zero talk reception when I am at home. I had great reception on my old straight talk phone, what could be the issue?

    • Sara, What was your old Straight Talk phone? It could be that your old phone ran on the Verizon network, and your new phone is on AT&T – and their coverage may not be equivalent in your house.

  • Will the kyocera Rise from virgin mobile work with a straight talk sim, I like the service from straight talk but I want the kyocera rise phone.

    • Sheila, Boost phones cannot be used on Straight Talk. However, she could sell her Boost phone on Craigslist / eBay and get another from Straight Talk; they have phones starting at a very low price (sometimes free)

  • This is a great site!! Much more informative than some of the others I have been to lately! I have been seaching for some answers to a few questions I have before making the ST change.
    I am looking to buy the Samsung Galaxy S2 (i777 vs t989). I have read on some sites that the Galaxy S2 that ST sell has had some of the functions or setting changed thus it isn’t the same as a GS2 I can buy from ebay. What is your info. on this?
    One of the advantages of buying outright would be I could get updates and I believe you don’t from ST. Am I correct on this?
    Would getting updates even do me any good?
    Does it matter if I get a locked AT&T or T-Mobile phone if I plan on using a AT&T SIM?
    Lastly, the i777 vs t989? Can I get 3G on either one?

    • Deanna,

      Thanks for your comment & kind words.

      The Straight Talk Galaxy S2 may or may not ever have an update. Unless there are software bugs, this is probably OK, and you won’t ever need an update. In reality, it is unlikely that the AT&T / T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II phones will see much of an update, they are probably end of life as carriers are focusing on newer/better phones.

      If you buy a AT&T or T-Mobile version of the S2, it does not matter if the phone is unlocked or not. I believe you will be able to get 3G on either one without a problem.

      Let us know what you decide and how it works out!

  • I have a question about a blackberry torch. I have been looking for a smartphone to put onto the straight talk network. This girl has one and told me that she got at SIM card and put it into the blackberry torch and it worked on the straight talk network. This list says that NO blackberrys will work on the network. Is this true or is she just trying to get rid of the phone? I also asked her a question about if the phone came with the SIM card if i bought it and she said no she transfer the card into her new phone. I also thought you could not transfer SIM cards from one phone to another?

    Also had someone else try to sell me a verizon lg spectrum. It is unlocked and he said they got a verizon phone to work with straight talk network as well so he told me if I bought a SIM card it should work. I thought Verizon phones did not work with straight talk and i told him that and he did not believe me.

    Please help!!!!! im in desperate need!!! i really want the verizon lg spectrum to work….love the phone but not going to take a chance of it not working.

    • Ashley, The official Straight Talk position is that BlackBerry phones do not work with their network. However, many people do use GSM BlackBerry phones on the Straight Talk network; they just don’t have access to the BlackBerry features – it just works as a phone with texting & data, no BlackBerry mail, etc. That being said, you probably won’t get any support from Straight Talk if you run into problems since they say “No” to BlackBerry.

      The Verizon phone definitely will not work on Straight Talk.

      Straight Talk has very inexpensive phones, starting at FREE, so just get a new phone from them OR buy one of the phones on the above list by following the link to amazon.com

    • Caleb,

      It appears that Yes, it should work with the Motorola Flipout as it is a GSM phone that supports the 850 & 1900 Mhz bands. You’ll need the phone unlocked unless it is an AT&T or T-Mobile issued phone.

  • Hi I just purchased a brand new phone with intentions to go to straight talk. My question is on the site I bought it from it says at@t amd teen mobile compatible so I was wondering should I buy an at@t micro sim or teen mobile or unlocked sim from your website. I want AT&T coverage but just not sure which micro sim to buy thanks

    • Betty,

      No, the Verizon Pantech 4g will likely not work with Straight Talk. You might want to check out another prepaid carrier called Page Plus, who allows the use of Verizon phones on their network.

  • Hi,

    Just want to know Panteach model #ADR8995VW with Verizon is the GSM phone? Can I use it as the Straight Talk SIM? Can I insert a different SIM card if I out of country?


    • Joseph, The Motorola ATRIX HD MB886 does have GSM capabilities, and should work with Straight Talk SIM. You may need to have it unlocked, unless the phone is locked to AT&T or T-Mobile. The Samsung Captivate slide is a GSM phone from AT&T that should also work with Straight Talk SIM.

    • Debi,

      I would suggest contacting Straight Talk Customer Support on this one. They can advise what is possible with this phone. As you already know, talk & data should work fine.

    • Frank, Yes you can use the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G on Straight Talk without unlocking. Keep in mind that it won’t work on 4G though. However there are other prepaid carriers that do support 4G, see Phone Bill Cut for more information on this.

  • I have a Motorola EX124G tracfone that if I can, would like to use for Straighttalk. It’s GSM and specs say operates on the same 850 & 1900 Mhz bands.

    Just wondering..any help appreciated.

  • Ok…so I recently got a HTC Merge which has a spot for a SIM card..but I have no idea where to go from here. I don’t know if it’s unlocked and if it isn’t how to go about unlocking it…as well as what size SIM to get and activating it for Straight Talk use. Please help!

  • Can I use my t mobile Samsung sidekick 4g with a straight talk SIM card?

    And if the answer is yes, will I have the same service coverage as my friend who has a different phone with a straight talk sim? Basically I like the phone but t mobile service does not work at my house or work. But my friends straight talk does. Thanks in advance for any help!

    • Yes, you can use your T-Mobile sidekick.

      Your friends phone could have different coverage. If he has an AT&T SIM, his phone will prefer/use the AT&T network. IF he has a T-Mobile SIM, then his phone will use/prefer the T-Mobile network. You might want to get your phone unlocked and choose the AT&T SIM if T-Mobile does not work at your residence.

  • i want to buy a samsung doubletime 1857 and a t-mobile sharp 2009, will they both work om the straight talk sims card????? please help me on this!!!

    • The Samsung doubletime 1857 will work with Straight Talk SIM. IT will need to be unlocked if it is not with AT&T or T-Mobile.

      The T-Mobile Sharp 2009 will work with Straight Talk SIM.

  • I have a iPhone 4 from AT&T that is under contract and was wondering do I have to get my contract terminated to get service with straight talk. Please give me step by step on what I should do when I get the SIM card and the $45 plan card. Thanks

    • 1) Order your SIM from Straight Talk using the links above.
      2) Request Straight Talk to port your number from AT&T
      3) Your AT&T contract will terminate at the number port request
      4) Pay your last AT&T bill and start saving big money on Straight Talk!

  • Hi! I’m looking into Straight Talk since US Cellular is getting out of control with their prices…. Can you tell me if any of these 3 phones from US Cellular will work with Straight Talk??

    HTC Desire
    HTC Touch Pro2
    Blackberry Curve 9330

    Thank you!

    • Pretty much any US Cellular phone will work with Straight Talk SIM if it is unlocked first. The Blackberry phone won’t work as Straight Talk does not allow them on their network.

  • I have a Samsung Captivate Glide, I was wanting to know what all do I have to do to make my Samsung Captivate Glide work on Straight Talk? I was wanting to switch to the Straight Talk $45 unlimited plan. That includes talk,text,and data. Thanks!

    • All you need to do is purchase a SIM using the links above – it will walk you through the process. Then you simply need to install the SIM in your phone with the provided instructions and you’re up and going with Straight Talk!

  • well it says that you canot use a blckberry bu it says that if the phone has gsm 850 and 1900 then i am all set and i looked up the blackberry on your google phone research link at the top of this page and all the blackberies have the gsm 850 and gsm 1900

    • Brandon, You may be able to make the phone feature on a Blackberry work on the Straight Talk network – however most of the other features including the Blackberry e-mail features won’t work. Furthermore, Straight Talk does not allow BlackBerry devices in their terms of service – so it is a true statement that they won’t work.

  • Pantech Breakout according to PCMagazine is a dual band phone that operates in the 850 and 1900 bands. I noticed you’ve told several people that since it’s a Verizon phone, it will not work with Straight Talk. Is this true and why? Thanks.

    • The Pantech Breakout will not work with Straight Talk SIM. The reason for this is that it uses a CDMA radio. Straight Talk SIM only works with phones that have a GSM radio and accept a SIM Card. This is because Straight Talk SIM uses the AT&T and T-Mobile networks, and both of those networks are GSM networks.

  • correction to my question S5 Unlocked 4.0 inch HVGA Touch Screen Cell Phone With Quad Band Dual SIM Dual Cameras will this work with straighttalk PLAN?

  • I have a basic Straight talk phone and it is Verizon network, I love Verizon service and Straight talk. I would like to keep the same phone number and get a touch screen phone from Straight talk and give the old phone to family member with a new number. Can I keep on the verizon network with a new Staight Talk service and touch screen phone and keep my old number on my new phone and get a new number with my old phone and stay with Straight talk?
    Whew that was long!

    • Sally, You can continue to use Verizon with Straight Talk if you purchase a phone that runs on the CDMA network. I recommend that you check out the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim, as it is a very nice Android touch-screen smartphone that runs on the Verizon network through Straight Talk. Then you can give your old phone to a family member and they can activate it with their own Straight Talk service plan.

  • I want to buy a Unlocked Titanium HTC G2 4G GSM Google Android QWERTY Smartphone for my daughter for christmas and she currently uses straight talk plan. Do you know if this phone will work?

  • I have a Verizon iphone 4 and i was wondering if it was possible to unlock it and use it with straight talk? instead of buying a used AT&T iphone 4

  • If I buy a refurbished iphone 3 from gamestop do I have to jailbreak or unlock to use with straightalk sim card the gamestop guy said it is a at&t phone!
