    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

    That's awesome, now that I think about it more maybe it was Tracfone and Net10 that wasn't working with IP4.
    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 :/

    Well ST $45 unlimited everything makes sense for me, funny I even made a few international phone calls today. The only way to get an iphone working is with ST unlimited plan which if you think about it its cheaper than AT&T's monthly plan, of course you first have to buy the nokia e71 phone I got it for $160 on ebay.

    Well if you really, really think about it, it's not cheaper.
    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..

    Did you have to cut the sim card or does the E71 come with the micro sim? I'm thinking of this for an iPhone4.

    @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

    Well yea if you don't want to be stuck with an extra 3 months that ebay option is good lol.

    I wonder who's spectrums ST uses... how's the signal reliability? do they offer only 3G?

    It seems from my understanding according to facebook discussions all their phones that end with a C will run under Verizon tower and all their phones that end with a G will run under AT&T tower.

    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.

    So you confirm you have 3G on that nokia sim? I'm not sure if it was related to this but I remember reading something about using Nokia sim cards only being it used EDGE, so the company would only allow unlimited EDGE not 3G.
    Might have been another carrier o.O

    Correct I do have 3G, also Nokia e71 phone shows 3G service active. The edge or 3g issue is all depending on the person's location.
    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.
