    Can I unlock my Droid Maxx and use it on Straight Talk

    I have used both a Straight Talk AT&T and T-Mobile sim in my MAXX, and both work fine. You will have to make a few changes in your settings, which are listed on the Straight Talk site. Data speeds should be faster with the T-Mobile SIM, since the MAXX can handle T-Mobile 4G, but I get decent speeds with HSPA+ AT&T, and AT&T coverage is much better where I live.

    You need a nano sim. You either need to sit your sim card down or get a new one from straight talk.

    Hey guys want to thank everyone for all the help that you provided in getting my Droid Maxx on straight talk but I promise this is the last question.In a earlier post someone said that the Maxx works better on T-Mobile frequeinces so I order a nano card from straight talk and all they have is the one's from at&t is this correct or did I miss something again

    Are the APN settings Straight Talk? I see three choices in my APNs: Straight Talk, Verizon CDMA HRDP and Verizon Internet. Am I supposed to change the Network Mode to GSM / UMTS and insert the new SIM? Will it offer me the AT&T APN choice then?
    Somebody please reply.

    I have a consumer droid maxx from vzw the boot loader isn't unlocked I haven't tried to activate it yet I would like to put it on aio its decent in my area but I can't get the unlock code vzw is holding it hostage can I still put it on a different carrier I don't know is its sim unlocked and country unlock I don't understand what a unlocked Sim means when the phone is still locked I also realize because of it being a world phone all network it can be put on different carriers but is it possible that vzw locked it from being used in the United States

    Is this the 2013 droid Maxx? If so it's gsm unlocked per the FCC regulation of Verizons purchase of the 700mhz spectrum it should work on AIO just fine.

    I put a straight talk Sim in my droid maxx and so far everything works but data is very slow. It bounces between edge, h and h+ and from one bar occasionally jumping to 5. I used the APN settings that it said to. I know at&t signal is very good here too. So any ideas why it is so slow?

    My signal suddenly improved a lot and for the most part im well pleased with straight talk on my maxx. It out performs my Verizon lte in a lot of areas. My battery life has taken a big hit though. With little use I'm down to 50% where I'd normally be in the 80s. Does gsm use more battery than CDMA/LTE on the maxx?

    I talked to Verizon global services yesterday. My Razr Maxx is fine out of the U.S. with a foreign SIM (but check the FAQ for exceptions). They do block usage on any other network inside the U.S.
