    ok so i havent had a phone in about 6 months and its killing me.
    i want to get a higher end phone but not pay $500. ive herd that you can get a sims card from straght talk if you pay them  like $15. my question is, can that sims card be put in an at&t phone and everything work like normal? also not shore if this would matter but i would root the phone and put a different rom on it

    Yes that is exactly what the straight talk sim cards are made for. Root and from if you like, it doesn't affect it.

    perfect. now what network would it work on cus ive read that if you do use a sims card from ST that is would work on a sprint network and well sprint in my area is poop so i dont want that. at&t and verizon would be the best in my area.

    also any suggestions on the type of phone to get. i only wanna pay about $250 but it has to have atleast. 1.0 dual-core cpu, front camera, and a flash?

      I LOVE TO ARGUE
    Iits gonna be at&t or tmobile. Sprint doesn't use sims its a cdma network and only verizon world phones are gsm. If you get a straight talk sim its going to be at&t or tmobile. I think you get an option.

    Yes, if its unlocked get att compatable or tmobile compatable. If its locked get the one that matches ur branded phone.

    You may need to manualy enter apn codes.

    But yor gsm frequencys match to both carriers. So ur good since straight talk uses these two carriers towers.

    Data may be an issue, but your gonna haft to cross that bridge when you get there most likley for now, talk n sms 99% sure will work.

      Let me know. I appreciate help.
    Basically, to figure out what carrier is 'best' for your phone for 3g and higher data speeds:

    Look at the specs for the phone (Google it).

    See what frequencies are listed for UTMS:

    AT&T uses 850. Use the AT&T sim
    T-Mobile uses 1700. Use the T-Mobile sim.

    Check the T-Mobile website for coverage.

    Basically, if you're NOT in a actual city, you're NOT getting anything more than GPRS with T-Mobile (slower than dialup).

    AT&T has much wider coverage for at least EDGE (AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all have 3G and above here). T-Mobile doesn't even have EDGE for 50 miles.

    That's the major reason I'm dropping T-Mobile, sold my G1, and went with a AT&T phone to use with ST.

    Straightalj websight lets u choose between att n tmobile, go att, u can get a micro or full sim.

    If it dosent show up use a diffrent zip n then change it to real one at checkout

    I agree totally.

    The tech support doesn't matter to me as much as coverage.

    ST/AT&T would satisfy my need for price/coverage.

    I'm currently still on the pre-paid T-Mobile w/unl data and text ($30/mo), but having unl data at GPRS just is silly...lol..

    ST for $45 makes more sense. At least I'll have 3G

      Deeper down the rabbit hole!!!!
    Yeah go ATT sim... my stepdaughter bought a nokia lumia 900 win phone (blegh, bad taste in mouth) for $50 from our neighbor who took an upgrade on ATT and she gets 4G with the ATT microsim through ST... I'm sure there are Android options with similar hardware specs as the lumia 900 and nokia has a network setup app(I would assume they would have the same for android) that makes apn changes so simple its ridiculous.
