iPhone 4s Straight Talk get Data/MMS to work:

A few reasons to go with AIO over Straight Talk despite the small difference in monthly price:
1) Lots of reported issues with ST and random data throttling
2) Issues using some internet services with ST (like Uber app wouldn't work on ST for a while)
3) ST still has issues with MMS
4) Coverage "may" be better with ATT owned AIO
5) Visual voicemail works on AIO but does not on Straight Talk
6) Porting number to AIO is a lot smoother. Straight talk has issues with porting your number out (currently they can't port to AIO)
7) I am switching from ATT, and moving to AIO should be seamless because again owned by same company
It's about $5-7 more a month over a year on AIO (ST charges tax), and AIO has 3rd month free so it's not a huge difference.
New SIM NOT Required for LTE... but highly recommended http://www.androidpolice.com/2013...h-att-lte/
1.$7 sim with free overnight, plug in, transfer account online, profit!
2.Wait for ST to finally get to updating your sim in their system (they plan to upgrade all of the old BYOD ATT sims, eventually)
3.Call and try to find someone to manually update your sim in their system (not recommended unless you enjoy dealing with customer support)
Straight Talk Users Sue Walmart And TracFone Over Throttling Of Unlimited Data Plans
and also terminate their ‘unlimited’ customers’ data, typically without any notice or warning http://consumerist.com/2013/07/30...ata-plans/ The plaintiffs in the suit detailed how the companies slowed their speed of service or cut it off it altogether and then blamed the subscribers for misusing of the service. The plaintiffs David Hansel, Edward Tooley and Christopher Valdez filed their claims on behalf of others, and allege breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, and violations of Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, California's Unfair Competition Law and California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
In addition, ........ “Defendants terminated customers’ data at the behest of their wireless network partners when a particular cell tower is at or near data capacity, regardless of whether that customer’s data usage has exceeded defendants’ secret data usage limits,” the complaint states.
Free Overnight Shipping for SIM Cards: Select the Sim you want to purchase at checkout select overnight shipping ($14.95) before confirming the purchase it will deduct the Overnight Shipping charge. A word of advice regarding shipping: Their free 1-day shipping is with Fedex, requires someone to be there in person to sign for the package. No signing on the door tag, no leaving it with neighbors, no signing a release for them to leave it, no redirecting it to a Fedex store, you HAVE to be home to accept the package. I spent an hour on the phone with ST customer service and Fedex and did not get anywhere. I had to work from home that day to accept the package but many people don't have the option of working from home.
