Default Moto G bought from Straight Talk Question

So the Moto G bought from straight talk uses TMobile's network.

Question is if I purchase a Straight Talk AT&T sim for use in this phone will it work?

This is the 4G LTE model. Easier on the wallet at $169 than $219 if doable.

I think the one from ST is not the same as the one motorola is selling for $219. From youtube videos I have seen it doesnt have an SD card slot so I am guessing its the older GSM version of the moto g

According to a few posts on the ST forum, it is indeed the 4G LTE Moto G with the Micro SD slot.

I bought a G from ST.

This phone is sim locked and is not the LTE. They won't unlock and the phone won't run any sim that isn't the tracfone T-Mobile compatible, same issue for APN settings.

This phone will only run off T-Mobile if you buy it from Straight talk.

Save yourself the hassle, buy the GPe or regular unlocked version and then get a micro sim for AT&T from ST after. Don't buy it from ST or you are wasting time and money.
Probably sent from one of my current toys...

Motorola Moto G GPe

(or a multitude of legacy devices that should be stuffed in a drawer somewhere...)
