    Default Straight Talk

    Ok. I have read thread after thread on this subject. And I am just getting more confused. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 through AT&T. When I called straight talk they said this phone was compatible with the program. So I bought the ATT compatible straight talk sim through walmart. It was a normal sim card. So I couldn't use it. I need a micro sim. When I called straight talk today, they told me my phone wasn't compatible because it went through ATT. Big question, is it compatible, and if so what do I do to set this stuff up? Any help would be awesome. And dumb it down...I can be dense

    I know that you can buy a Sim card cutter (on eBay < $10 or elsewhere online) that can cut a regular sized SIM card into a micro sized. Some people have cut it by hand. Don't know if the phone will work or not on ST. As far as I understand, as the phone is a GSM phone and should work. I don't believe it needs to be unlocked either (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    You can get an ST mirco sim card from walmart.com

    Straight Talk AT&T Compatible Micro SIM w/ $45 AirTime Card ($5 Savings): Cell Phones : Walmart.com

    Or buy it a lone if you already have a month's worth of service. You can also use ANY att phone with this sim. Including the S3 right out of the box.
