Is my phone already unlocked and capable of moving to straight talk? Do I just need to buy the straight talk sim? Or can I just move my phone over by buying a month's service and changing my settings as the earlier posts in this thread? I'd appreciate some help. This is my first time rooting a phone on my own as well, so if anyone knows where some mods are for it, I'd like to know. I haven't found any that are conformed yet.
Your AT&T phone is ready out of the box for Straight talk, no need to root or unlock, because Straight talk is a AT&T MVNO, it uses the same towers. Just make sure you purchase the AT&T sim card from Straight talk (NOT THE TMOBILE, they sell both)
Just pop the new straight card sim in,and just adjust the APN setting and manually enter in the posted info for the APN setting and everything work, phone data, mms, data all at 4G LTE speeds.
its the best alternative for an AT&T phone, other MVNO, caps data speeds to 8mbps ( cricket ) but Straight talk doesn't cap data speed, but ping times are longer than direct AT&T service, it takes a couple of seconds before data connects, not really noticeable, but for $47 bucks a months total, It cant be beat.
