    Lightbulb Straight Talk/Tracfone on Galaxy Nexus

    My brother just inherited my Galaxy Nexus. We're trying to find out what pay-per-month carrier he can use with this phone. We were planning on talking the sim card out and putting it in the Galaxy Nexus (Unlock/Root if needed). Specifically we were looking at using Straight Talk or Tracfone. Anyone have any experience with this? Or suggestions on making this work?

    Thanks.

    I believe the only prepaid you can go with is Verizon. Since it is CDMA version you are pretty restricted.

    From what I have been reading, straighttalk uses AT&T towers and will not work. Others suggest PagePlus

    Right, don't believe Straight Talk has BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for Verizon. It does offer its own phones on Verizon, but all the BYOD stuff is AT&T/T-Mobile.
