    Default Did Strait Talk drop att?

    After looking around at the Strait Talk it looks like you can no longer order an att SIM card from Strait Talk? Only Tmo. Did they drop them from their service list?

    It wouldn't surprise me. MVNOs like Straight talk lease from the networks and maybe ATT become to expensive to be able to add new subscribers while keep costs to the consumer the same.

    I just purchased a ST at&t sim card, standard size, from the walmart.com website for $15.00. I should receive the card this Friday.

    I also just ordered a ST at&t micro-sim from a seller on ebay for $30.00. (Some people are selling the micro card as high as $250.00, which is rediculous! )

    I am going to switch to ST when my at&t contract ends in September. Tmo has terrible service where I sometimes travel so an at&t sim is a requirement for me.

    I also need to buy a new phone so I want to make sure I have both sizes of at&t sim cards to fit any phone.

    I'd move fast if u want to find a ST at&t sim.
    Good luck,

    Just because you have the SIM cards in your possession doesn't mean straight talk will activate them.

    Mike is correct. They will have a cut off date if they did in fact drop att.

    OK, thanks, good to know.
    I guess I should start looking for a new phone. I may need to have 2 cells for a while.
    Better get one of the sims activated ASAP.
    Thanks again,

    I was wondering the same thing today when I tried to order an ATT microsim from ST. I was not able to do so through ST's site, but ended up ordering one from Wal-Mart online. Here is my conversation with ST folks via Facebook.

    It's kinda sad, because ST was really the only way to get AT&T service for cheap. T-Mo is great when you live in a metro and don't travel much (Monthly4G has been working for me just fine), but not so great otherwise.

    I purchased a ST, ATT standard sim from WM.com last Friday and I received it this past Thursday. I wanted to order a micro-sim too, but they were out online.

    I checked WM.com again last night and the ATT micro-sim is back in stock. I should get the micro-sim by next Friday.

    Dear Scott,

    Thank you for your interest in Straight Talk Wireless. We are responding

    Straight Talk Wireless is not selling SIM cards that are compatible with
    AT&T devices at this time. We will bring them back as soon as we can.
    For updates on this issue, please refer to our website at
    .

    For any further questions or comments, please contact one of our

    Seems that email was picked from a list of auto-generated ones to me. The scary part is "as soon as we can". This is like saying "maybe" in retail. As soon as we can could be tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or never, depending on when "they can". No straight answers from Straight Talk.

    Lol nice play on works my friend! I hope they continue to carry them. If not then ST may lose a good chunck of customers. Here in VT Tmo is just not an option. Unless you want EDGE only. I guess time will tell.

    Also here is a link to the att micro sim card for ST. In case anyone wants one.

    Tmobile ST has only 2g where I live so I needed an AT&T compatible micro sim. I had one hell of a time ordering from Walmart. I tried ordering the micro sim/$45 aritime kit 4 times with 2 different credit cards and a giftcard, all were declined due to "problem processing credit" even though I could see that they preauthorized on my bank account.

    I then finally ordered as a "guest user", ordering only the sim card with the WM gift card. That worked. Don't know what the issue was, but my sim is in the mail. Can't wait to fire up the Nexus.

    Damn it that sucks! Let us know how it goes. I'm guessing Tmo signed an agreement with ST to ONLY carrier their SIMs on their web site for a short amount of time. So ST will gain att SIMs again soon I'm guessing.

    Net10 and Straight Talk are both owned and operated by Tracfone. If one has dropped AT&T then the other most likely has also.

    If Straight Talk drops AT&T then I am screwed. Tmobile works fine in my area except I can't pick up a signal in the building where I work.

    Also good to know. I wonder if they are in fact dropping att as whole. Sucks IMO because I have no Tmo is my area. I was thinking about ST after my contract ends.

    The one hell about Tmo! Coverage! But if your forced to to with Tmo they have an internet plan that's $30 a month for 100 minutes, Unlimited text & 5gigs of data! Check it out and save even more if your forced into using Tmo.

    FWIW, I saw a Net10 AT&T sim package available at my local Wal-Mart today. It included the first month of service for $65.

    The ST AT&T Sim I got from Walmart works great so far. About 5m/1.5m speeds leaving the proxy settings blank. Last I checked they still had them, just don't order the package, get the Sim only so order will go through

    This is exactly what I did - just bought the SIM online from Wal-Mart. It was delivered in two days.

    When I tried to order the SIM with the first months service they cancelled my order.
