Hmm I remember researching this awhile back and that you couldn't do it with a IP4 and Tracphone or Virgin etc.
I think it had to do with something like these carriers are rented out cell spectrum's by the big carriers so like Tracphone borrows signals from multiple carriers and it's always changing?
I don't know I forgot but my conclusion was it won't work, but then again there is a way around everything

Hey guys im here to report i'm running my iPhone4 with StraightTalk unlimited plan that was activated on my nokia e71 sim card =)
All I'm missing is MMS, I don't wanna pay $5 right now lol since I'm still under contract with my Blackberry on sprint

I had a Tmobile prepaid at about 10c a minute and I'm sure Tracfone and Net10(same company) have the best rates around at about 6c a minute prepaid.
After looking at Straighttalk's plans I think it was more just me deciding not to go with their plans seeing it would be more expensive for my needs.
I am gonna go with a att $25 a month 2gb data plan( ), tried to find a unlimited plan contract for sale but no luck :/

I understand $25 att data plan is not unlimited(2gb cap) but if I was able to get a hold of a $30 unlimited att data plan guess what?
Not only am I paying $15 less than you a month but I get unlimited everything...
Don't ask me how..

@robnyc Ya know I was looking at Straighttalk prices again and it is actually a pretty dam good deal if you consider the yearly or 6 month plan which are both at about $41.6 dollars a month... NOT BAD.
My method is cheaper but with it so hard to get a $30 unlimited I wonder if 2gb is good enough for me personally a month, if it is not I might go with your route, cheers xD

I been with sprint for 9yrs and this is my first time actually owning and now using this iPhone4 under ST which is basically at&t I am amazed how better it is. People can hear me better, I have faster 3G speeds and constant since last wednesday when I first got it. So signal reliability all depends on your area but for me so far so good better than sprint. I have a blackberry with sprint and am in contract till november.
Now I want to see if this sim card will work on AT&T android phones or AT&T blackberry.

Don't expect 3G if you live in a poor area where ATT coverage is limited.
I believe with ST it uses ATT primary and option to roam on Tmobile if ATT is not available. Which not might be the case since ATT has more coverage than tmo.

This is to confirm my 3G & speeds in my area
