How come most of you want this ATT/ST sim card? Is ATT the only service in your area? I am just wondering because i know many people who complain about ATT's reliability. There are others like Simple Mobile MVNO of Tmobile, Boost Mobile of Sprint, and Page Plus of Verizon. So how come a lot of you want these sims? I just want to understand
AT&T is the only service that works at home - I live in what seems to be about a 3-4 square block dead zone for Sprint (without their booster) and T-Mobile. Straight Talk is the best deal for my needs (more than 100/300 voice minutes and > 1GB - not slow-ass Sprint 3G - data), particularly w/the ATT network.
If this is a permanent change, then that really erodes at Straight Talk's value for those who can't rely on T-Mobile's network, TMO's LTE networking coming online later notwithstanding.
agreed, T-Mobiles LTE network will be great but prob is T-Mobile themselves don't cover all of the USA.. AT&T and Verizon do easy, T-Mobile's LTE is only suppose to be done in urban areas first with a few rural but that's to be determined by their people..
after the reframing process on T-Mobiles network maybe some people will move to their service.. others wont because of the hit of coverage..
good thing is LTE(possibly) and HSPA+ on T-Mobiles beats the crap out of AT&T's but again its limited to the areas that get it.. here im hopeing for something better than GPRS, which a rep told me that most if not all GPRS locations will be reframed, and that they are prob just waiting on the merger to finish (since Metro-Pcs is in my town) to push 3G to my phone and what not..
At the same time this is good for T-Mobile lol! they need that extra money to build out their network anyways and hopefully ill get Edge or 3G/4G after the reframing is done.. cause to tell you the truth GPRS is just horrible
Wow you must be in the boondocks, just 2G with TMobile?
I've tried both company's SIM cards with Straight Talk and while TMobile had 5 bars 100% HSPA+ signal in my house I had to go with ATT. I've found that the ATT SIM will allow the phone to roam differently and I'm able to get better data service when I'm in some rural areas that I hunt out of. The TMobile SIM on the other hand would roam, but didn't allow me to have any data access except on the TMobile network. So.. if I'm forced over to the TMobile SIM I'll probably stick it out until I'm sick of my Galaxy Nexus but eventually have to get on with another carrier.
Are people getting backups for if their phone is lost / stolen, or do these sims sometimes go bad?
Thats what I was wondering. I cant imagine ever needing a new SIM, but I guess some people have situations where it may be warranted.
Kyle: Dude! I almost thought those Afghani kids talked you into not liking America. Stan: No, dude. America may have some problems, but it's our home. Our team. And if you don't wanna root for your team, then you should get the hell out of the stadium. Kyle: Yeah. Stan: <salutes the American flag> Go America. Kyle: <salutes> Go America... Stan: Go Broncos Kyle: Yeah go Broncos. Cartman: Yeah...
I am VERY surprised this has taken this long, I think it is due to their commercials. Once you see one of those the question is right there, why would they be able to use everybody elses services for less? Even though it is less, it is very cool to have your phone ROAM into anothers service and to much like right. I have very much enjoyed the getting along of services but this was only an obvious changa comin'. Good things ALWAYS end, unfortunately....
For those of you considering Net10 as opposed to StraightTalk, SIM cards in all three sizes are available on eBay for $0.99
I am biding my time until my Sprint contract is up, and I just ordered $10 worth of SIM cards in various sizes on net10.
I am sick and tired of Sprint promising me 4G is coming, and then selling me a WiMax phone, and then telling me that they changed their plans, and theye going with LTE, but I should keep paying a $10/month 'premium data charge' for 1G speeds which they have the audacity to call 3G
