I also have straight talk... its not the sim card its self that wont work with the 30 dollar plan.... it depends on the type of phone that you have. There's alot of data useage when it comes to the smartphones so the prefer that you purchase the unlimited plan that way your phone would work properly....

SOURCE: my lg vu does not recognize the sim card.

When a SIM works in other phones and no other SIMs work in the particular phone, there is a phone issue. Somehow it has become corrupted and it will need replaced promptly. If purchased new from AT&T less than one day ago, it is under warranty as long as there is not liquid or physical damage. If purchased refurbished from AT&T less than 90 days ago, it is under warranty as long as there is not liquid or physical damage. If neither of these apply and you have insurance, use it and there will be a $50 deductible applied to your next bill. If not purchased from AT&T, seek replacement from ebay, craigslist, or a gophone (put your sim in the phone... it will have your phone number, contacts, and information and you won't have prepaid service).

You might need to bring it in to your service provider and maybe it will be a simple fix. It might just be as simple as switching service towers or something

I have an indigi 40 with 2sim cards. I am supposed to be able to use it on both phone connections but Straight Talk says they cannot connect it to their service. Why is this?

The SIM card helps identify the individual device as well as the service it receives. When you activate the phone, you have to give them all kinds of information- phone MEID, SIM number, etc. If you have a faulty SIM, they will send a new one and you have to give them the numbers for the new card to activate it. The problem appears that you're trying to register two SIMs to a single phone. I would talk to Straight Talk customer service to be sure, but I'm betting you can only activate that phone on a single SIM and you won't be able to get service switching back and forth between them.

I’m waiting on a SIM card from straight talk . My cellular data does not work away from WiFi. They said I would get it in about a week. Can I get a SIM card from Walmart from which I got my straight talk...

No because the SIM Card has to be registered with that particular phone using its unique IMEI number. If you try to put an other SM in it, Straight Talk will SIM Lock the phone so you can't use it. They discount the price of the phone and get their money back on call service.

I want to transfer my Straight Talk phone to my old Straight Talk iPhone and says my SIM card number does not match why

They are different SIM cards. If you contact Straight Talk they should be able to provide you a SIM card that will work on the frequencies the old iPhone runs on.

My Straight Talk Huawei says it has no service but was working last night and now just wont send messages what is going on

1. Did you pay the bill? Check with them, maybe your service got cut off.
2. If it isn't #1, Take the SIM card out and put it back again, maybe the SIM card is faulty.
3. If possible, go to settings, mobile network, and choose to search for your wireless carrier, once it pop up, tap it to register.
4. You also must make sure your APN is in order. And have the correct APN check for Straight Talk.

What would cause an unlocked, fully charged iphone 4 to turn its self off when using a straight talk sim

I had a common problem with my iPhone 4. Using it with maps, it drained the battery within an hour or so. I thought I destroyed the battery. I went to the Apple store, and they offered me a free of charge (3 years old phone) diagnose on the genius bar.
I had to unlock the phone and the genius started an app (I could not see what app) and then put it next to a iPad. The iPad had a program running and within minutes there was the report. The battery was almost as new, but there were a couple of apps, fighting for the first place and draining my battery. It was a known problem, caused by an old firmware (NOT THE OS). They offered me to update the firmware, and half an hour later i was outside with a great working iPhone 4. It still works perfect and I do have a battery life of 3 days (I don't make many calls)
So if you have time to visit the Apple store ask them the same. If he store is not close to you, I would make an appointment using the net. Before you leave to the store, make sure you have a backup, because they will wipe the whole phone.

I want to convert my motorola blur from at&t to straight talk

It will take a straight talk SIM card in your Motorola. Since Straight Talk runs on the AT&T network, AT&T and Straight Talk SIM cards will work, easy as that.

Good luck!!
