Activating a Straight Talk iPhone on Tracfone

A reader, Alison, asks…

Hi Bob,
WalMart currently has Straight Talk branded iPhone 6 (32MB) for $199. Tracfone has no more iPhones available. Can I use those phones to replace my BYOP iPhone 4 & 4s? I seem to remember that when we bought our daughter the 6 last fall (from Tracfone’s website) it had a Straight Talk packaging.

Will I need to replace the Straight Talk SIM with a new Tracfone SIM?

My gut says buy one and try it, and then get the second. But I was hoping for better advice. The comments from the WM site are mostly that it can be done, but some say no. Thanks so much!
