    Default Can I Get My AT&T S4 to Work on AT&T Straight Talk Network

    Hey everybody.

    A few months ago I tried T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint & AT&T at my property. None worked aside from AT&T and I have great coverage with them.

    What I don't like is how expensive my S4 is each month. I can't stand that I have to pay over $100 monthly. I know that straight talk uses AT&T network sometimes. I am wondering if I can take my AT&T s4, and get it to work on the straight talk network via at&t ? Or can I downgrade my S4 to the straight talk S3 and force it to work on the AT&T network?

    My biggest issue is that I will buy a phone, or sign up for something, get it home and it either won't work at all, or it will be on one of the networks where I have no service at my property.

    Thanks for the help!

    I am presently using an At&T S4 on Straight Talk At&t. I can also get refills a lot of the time on Ebay for $105-$110 for 90 days which comes out to about $36.00 a month. A no brainier

    Go about what? If you have an At&t S4 and put a Straight Talk At&t sim card in all you have to do is enter the St apn settings. And away you go. If you want to but a phone off contract check out . I have bought and sold 6 or 7 phones from people there. Cheaper and more trustworthy then ebay imho

    wow! I wish I knew that before getting stuck into the contract! Fortunately, I bought the line of service from Amazon and they have an amazing return policy, and are going to let me return it, and then cancel my contract.

    Guy above, I know you recommended the Nexus. .. How is it comparable to the S4? I really want something with all the features, good camera, and speech to text. Can it do that?

    Nobody really knows how good or bad or how it will compare to the camera on the S4. I also ordered the Nexus 5 today and my opinion is that it might not be better than the S4 camera but it might be just as good and it comes with OIS which the S4 doesn't have

    My son is running my spare rooted S4 on Straight Talk right now, just went to their site, bought a SIM card for like $7.00, took the phone to Wal-Mart when it got here (three days, free shipping). They set it up in about 10 minutes, all done. Runs about as fast as my AT&T lines, youtube plays with no skips on the network, loads almost as fast as wi-fi.

    MMS requires an Internet connection.

    Are you APN settings setup properly?

    All you have to do is get it carrier unlocked pop in the straight talk gsm sim card but to get released from your contract your going to have to pay an etf early termination fee which can be upwards of 500 dollars just hope your prepaired for that

    How can you get an At&t Galaxy S4 unlocked to switch the carrier to straight talk?
