    Re: Using Straight Talk with iPhone?

    Can You guys help me? I want to go to straight talk, after being abused my AT&T. I want to use my old iphone 3g with it but I read that i have to have the Nokia e71 model because the sim card is unlocked. Is there any other way i can get around this? Like using ziphone to change the IMEI number on my iphone to the one on the phone i get from straight talk? will that work in activating the phone? and then going in cydia and changing the settings to enable mms?

    Basically, am I absolutely stuck with having to get that nokia e71 sim?

    please email me!! thank you!

    Nope you are stuck with the iPhone and AT&T, Straight Talk no longer sells the Nokia E71, Straight Talk for their GSM phones used AT&T's network and when people found out they could use the E71's sim card in their iPhone, people bought them like candy bars and started to cancel their iPhone accounts with AT&T, so AT&T presuaded Straight Talk not to sell the E71,so it is no longer available, do not try to buy one on E-Bay because it is useless with out the SIM card...sorry but that is coporate money working against us....

    I really don't know, but you might go to WalMArt in your area and see if they have any Nokia E71's left in stock, I know some stores still have them but if you check online with Straigh Talk their website does not show any GSM/ SIM card Smart Phones at all.

    The Walmart where I live had 4 Nokia E71's last night, they were all gone this afternoon, the guy working there said 3 of the people who bought them were going to use the SIM card for their iPhones, but did not know if they worked or not, he said he did not know if the new E71 SIM cards were now branded or not, but these were the first ones they had received from Straight Talk in a couple of months.

    I got it working on the 4s by: starting with the st sim card in and the phone on, go to settings and open up the menu, remove st sim insert t mobile (only until new menu opens- then take it out immediately) reinsert the st sim card go to the bottom of the menu and hit reset- the att settings will come up- if they don’t hit reset again.
    once they are up use the st setting by typeing over the one that are there. if you just fill in blanks it will never work you need to see the old setting before you proceed.

    Hello everyone,

    I am new here and this may have been mentioned in another thread, but Straight Talk now sells just the sim card. You can bring your own phone as long as it is AT&T, T-Mobile or unlocked. I bought a used iPhone on eBay and ordered the sim card from Straight Talk. You can even keep your same phone number.
