    Once you get the device you can use the compatibility checker here - https://get.straighttalk.com/keep-your-own-phone/

    The device MAY be locked to T-Mobile. If that is the case, you will need to have it unlocked so it needs to meet their requirements for unlocking - https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-1588

    It's not the SIM that needs to be compatible, the SIM is provided by the carrier and is specific to your account.

    Tmobile is on GSM, so it should work, but you may need to buy their sim card pack.

    You might need a new subscriber card that goes into a tray in your phone. They come in different sizes as well as compatabilities.
    Best buy or your new provider will sell you one.
