Straight talk comes with 4G network SIMs for use with the Verizon compatible phone, with the Verizon SIM cards you´ll be able to get 4G LTE, and the data speeds can be faster than 5 megabits per second.
Do you have an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6 and want to sign up for Straight Talk wireless, don't understand how it works or knows how to sign up? In this post, I'm going to tell you what you need to know and show you how if you haven't already done.
So I recommend you take a look at my article on smartphone matters.com, that article has all the links and additional information you'll need to sign up and use your iPhone with straight talk, you'll find a link to that article on the screen now, and in the description below the post now I have the iPhone 6 here, but all the information and steps in this post will also work for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s plus, and iPhone 6, and going forward I'll just say iPhone to refer to one of those four models.
When you sign up for straight talk. you have the choice to buy your iPhone directly from straight talk or use the iPhone you already have, if you want to use your own iPhone, you'll sign up for straight talks, bring your own phone plan or BYOP plan for short.
The first thing you should do when you sign up for Straight Talk wireless is pick the network you want to use. straight talk didn't build their own cellular network, instead, they use the AT&T Verizon Sprint and t-mobile networks, when you sign up your straight talks customer, but your iPhone will use one of those networks, pick the network that has the best coverage in your area, if you're currently an AT&T Verizon Sprint or t-mobile customer and are satisfied with the network coverage, then choose the same network when you sign up for Straight Talk.
Note, I don't have experience using straight talk sprint network, and I have little feedback from smartphone matters, readers, about using the Sprint network as well, so consider the information here about the Sprint network to be a guideline, and if you want to sign up for straight talk and use the Sprint network, I'd like to hear from you, when I ask straight talk, they told me if you want to use your iPhone with their Sprint network, your iPhone must be eligible and still have your Sprint SIM card in it, you'll need that SIM card to get 4G LTE service, straight talk does not sell Sprint compatible SIM cards, we'll talk about that a little bit more later.
Note that straight talk may not offer service on each of these four networks in all areas, but if you are currently using AT&T Verizon Sprint or t-mobile, then straight talk should offer service on that network in your area, you'll check if the network you want is available before you order your SIM card online at straighttalk.com.
