Straight Talk AT&T SIM Cards are Back!



Straight Talk Wireless is once again offering AT&T compatible SIM cards.  Straight Talk stopped selling AT&T SIMS in January, possibly because of a contract dispute with AT&T.

As of today, AT&T SIMs are available directly from Straight talk at straighttalkbyop.com for $14.99 with free shipping. Both regular and micro SIMs are offered and they seem to be available in all zip codes.

Staright Talk offers unlimited talk, messaging and data for $45 per month plus taxes.  Although data is advertised as unlimited, Straight Talk, doesn't allow tethering or "continuous" video streaming and reportedly throttles or shuts off service to users who use more than about 1.5 GB per month or 50 MB in a day.

  1. "Both regular and regular SIMs are available..." I think that's a typo.

  2. Now that Straight Talk/Tracfone/AT&T have jaded the customer even further.

  3. I don't think there was ever a contract dispute, more likely there was a certain number of BYOP lines Straight talk was allowed to sell.

  4. This gives me further reason to distrust America Movil and companies.

  5. Is there any LTE services from any of the ATT MVNO providers ?
    Are they all HSDPA service or do any of them have LTE now?
    I never see much of this mentioned in these articles, sorry if I missed it. Thanks

  7. They really just wanted to move as many people as possible to T-Mobile since it cots them less for data but they have had lots of people have problems since they have att phones. They will get a hard limit soon enough just like net10 does.

  9. Tracfone is all about cost. They first cut a deal with a major big four. Net10 was started at first just on Att because they got the best deal there. Straight Talk was started on Verizon first . Then they add the other big three as options and work them against each other to vie for the best rates possible. Then they sacrifice money on CS by outsourcing it with minimally trained, ESL rejects . Then they watch the dough roll in. And with that money is enough legal eagles and other ways to fight, pay off , sue anyone who gets in their way. Notice straight Talk has the best priced unlimited deal in the country but they don't allow small time dealers to sell it , only Walmart.

    Like I said, Tracfone is only about the money. Period.

    1. Most business is all about the money but the ones that show excellent customer care tend to stay around longer.

  10. Thanks Dennis
    Wed night and Thursday morning I spoke to AirVoice support. Two different support people.
    1. I was told my $40 plan would now be getting 1 GB of data (from 500MB). They will be updating their web sites to reflect that soon.
    2. I specifically asked if the data would slow down as I approached a certain amount or that 1 GB and I was told there is no speed reduction.
    3. I also asked “is there any LTE data for AirVoice on the horizon” and was also told that AirVoice cannot guarantee that all areas will have LTE but to be on the lookout for the LTE indicator on my phone as I travel around. I have a Moto MB886 Atrix HD phone on AirVoice.

    Just sharing what I got on their support phone line on Aug 7 and Aug 8 2013

  11. Dennis, I just saw a TV commercial announcing the Samsung S4 running on the Verizon network. Is this new? I cannot find any other info on the net.

  12. since when has straight talk advertised what network a phone runs on?

    1. I wouldn't call it advertising but Straight Talk have always indicated which network the BYOP SIMs sold on their site use. Buyers need to know so they get a SIM that's compatible with their locked phones.

  13. Is there any place where Straight Talk $45 refills can be bought online - to avoid paying the taxes that have to be paid if paying directly to Straight Talk?

    1. Walmart.com is the only other authorized vendor. They only charge sales tax.

      There are also a number of eBay sellers but I don't recommend them. I'm sure many are legitimate but others aren't. I've seen a number of reports of customers being ripped off.
