Straight Talk Question for my Nexus 5
I've been a Verizon user for almost ten years, and I'm almost ready to make the jump to do something else. Even though this is probably an easy question, here it is: Is what carrier Straight Talk uses based on the SIM that you buy? For example, I assume if I buy an AT&T Straight Talk micro-SIM card, then I will be running of AT&Ts towers, right? T-Mobile is horrible in my area and I just wanted to make sure I get to pick which towers I'm running off of.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Straight Talk Question for my Nexus 5GoPhone customers ( since june 2013) are treated on par with postpaid at&t customers - they use the same apn settings. I specifically asked at&t tech support and was told that go phone customers are now on the same n/w as postpaid. This means that they should in theory have same access to roaming ( as long as the phone also supports roaming partner frequencies).Yeah, Aio customers have to go through a proxy. There's a youtube video where a guy does a speedtest with an AT&T sim (i don't remember if it was gophone or contract sim), and has a ping in the 60's. He pops in Aio sim, and ping goes into the 200s.GoPhone doesn't throttle your data speeds. 8mb/s is about the average HSPA+ speeds for AT&T in some areas. Their LTE is much faster, maybe more than twice or three times that.
