I just tried this over the Thanksgiving holiday and it did not work. I picked up an LG CU420G which came with its own SIM and $30 airtime. Just to experiment, I tried the included SIM in my rooted/unlocked Samsung Infuse and my old unlocked LG CU500, and neither phone would recognize the SIM. The new Straight Talk SIMs would likewise not work in the LG CU420G, nor any other SIMs I tried aside from the one it came with. It's a phone for my Mom but annoyingly I'll have to buy another SIM card when she inherits my Infuse whenever Google gets more Nexus 4 stock .
Other SDers have been reporting successes, but maybe Straight Talk changed something about the SIMs included in their free phones to prevent people from doing this...
it has always been like that.. except for sims that come with 2 phones.. nokia e71 and nokia 69xx something.. now they started selling separate sims which you can put in your own phone..
