    i read something interesting today. somebody said he bought free flip-open phone on straighttalk.com with 45$ plan bundle. and he just took out the sim card from the phone and use with his smart phone. it is like he got the sim card for free!
    i checked i still can buy this phone now, but i am wondering if that sim card is available with nexus 4 and hspa+

    I bought a straight talk phone at Walmart A few weeks ago and activated it. I thought it would be possible to use the sim in an unlocked phone and so I tried. Didn't work. looks like the sim is locked to the phone. My phone shows no service.

    That's the way I understand it works; if you buy a Straight Talk GSM phone, the SIM card is locked to the phone.

    I believe the SIM card being activated has to be registered to a credit card account in order for them to pull the monies. Other wise how would they activate it for free.

    Well I had the $45 per month plan but never really bought a phone with it. I ordered my SIM directly from ST.

    I need to correct my own post! I thought of it later that I did the very thing the OP mentioned (although I most certainly did not get the SIM card for free!). I bought a prepaid T-Mobile Galaxy Exhibit II 4G and used it for a couple months. Then I bought a Galaxy Nexus, took the SIM card out of the Exhibit, put it in the Nexus, and it worked fine. The SIM card was definitely not locked to the phone.

    you need to buy the straight talk micro or compatible sim card only..... retail price about $15.00....you can normally purchase it online if not in a Walmart store..
