    Default service for my new Nexus 4?

    Plan to buy a nexus 4 as soon as my VZW contract is up, what are my service options??

    My area is only really covered by VZW (incompatible) and ATT.

    Sounds like straight talk was the best option, but they may have dumped ATT, sprint and tmo are garbage in my area,

    am I screwed??

    lol, thx

    I have this same problem. I'm on sprint, tmo is only 2G/Edge in my area, and like rhcreed said, ST may have dropped ATT SIMS...

    Yeah, just looking on their site, it appears that ST has dropped the AT&T SIM option. :P

    Just use AT+T then. Their prepaid isn't as cheap as the others, but if that's the only service you get you don't have much choice.

    The cheapest for prepaid direct from AT&T on a smartphone is $65/month, which is unlimited talk/text and 1GB of data. But just like on postpaid, they don't throttle. They charge $0.05/MB thereafter.

    Straight Talk did not drop AT&T haha. These wild speculations are absurd.

    I have an AT&T micro sim in my phone now. It works well so I decided to buy one for my wife.
    When I went through the options online, I got to a page where I couldn't go any further and purchase the sim.
    I then called and the person told me that they are not offering the sim now and he couldn't tell me if they would be in the future.
    Absurd, I think not!
    Walmart is offering an AT&T micro sim through NET10 ($50 month). I don't know about them though but I bought a sim.

    So they're out of stock, big deal. Do you not think it would be news if AT&T terminated its contract with Straight Talk?

    Let's be logical here.

    They only have standard size sims in stock for AT&T though, not the micro sims that the Nexus 4 needs.

    Just a follow up for those interested. There are quite a few Straight Talk AT&T unlocked GSM activation kits on Ebay.

    Here's another interesting fact. If all you can find are standard size sims but you need a micro sim, no problem! Make your own from a standard size!
