Straight Talk Verizon SIM Card

To sign up for the Straight Talk Verizon network check if your phone will work with the Straight Talk Verizon Network and order a CDMA LTE Activation Kit. Review the steps below and you can then complete them on the Straight Talk Web site.

1. Verify Your Phone Works With The Program
To check if you can use Straight Talk’s Verizon network enter your Zip Code and your phone’s MEI/MEID/ESN into the web site. Straight Talk uses the Zip code to make sure they have Verizon service in that area so use the Zip Code for the area you use your phone most. Straight Talk checks your phone’s IMEI/MEID/ESN to make sure Verizon will let them register your phone on the network if Verizon service is available in your area. IMEI/MEID/ESN is just fancy technical talk for your phone’s serial number. Dial *#06* and your phone’s IMEI should appear on the screen. Not all phone’s can be registered on the network and you need to know the exact IMEI from your specific phone. Your phone’s IMEI is a long number make sure you entered it carefully into the website. If the website tells you your phone is not compatible or returns an error, check again. Sometimes the website has problems. If your phone is compatible, stop at this point. Rather than follow the rest of the steps on the Straight Talk website right now. I recommend you order your Kit from the web site and then sign up after it arrives.

2. Order CDMA LTE Activation Kit
Use the link below to order a CDMA LTE Activation Kit. The kit contains all three size SIM cards so you’ll have the right size one for your phone. It also contains a Network Access Code that is used to register your phone on Straight Talk’s network.

3. Choose the Kit Only or the Kit with a Monthly Plan
If you are a new Straight Talk customer you can order the CDMA LTE Activation Kit only or order the CDMA LTE Activation Kit with a Monthly Plan. If you are a new Straight Talk customer, you’ll need a Monthly plan when you sign up so buy the Kit with either the $45, $55, or $60 Monthly plan. Most people choose the $45 plan.

    I have a unlocked samsumg galaxy s8 and bought a straight talk sim card kit. How do i pick between the 3 (at&t, tmobile, and verizon) sim cards?

    • Bob Thompson | | Reply

      Chilly,
      sorry I missed this. Choose the network that works best in your area. I prefer AT&T, many prefer Verizon. If your choice is T-Mobile or Verizon also check out Total Wireless and Simple Mobile to see if the plans better fit your needs. All three are owned by Tracfone.

    I have straight talk for the last 2 years, and my SIM card started saying that it was not readable and to contact my service provider. So, I was trying to figure out why, or how I could get a new one. I went to this website and it is saying my phone number doesn’t exist. Please, help me.

    I bout a straight talk phone from a friend and I need a straight talk Sims I went and bought the kit but it keep telling me no Sims so they said I need a straight talk one I called straight talk and order one but it has not got here and it’s been over a week

    • Bob Thompson | | Reply

      I am not sure there is a question there, but if you ordered a SIM you should have a confirmation number or email. You can always order another one directly online for $1.

    That was very helpful but my phone still does not work

      If you elaborate, I may be able to suggest something that will help with the problem.

    I have a Verizon iPhone 5c that is fully paid for and not locked into a contract (currently coasting on an expired contract grandfathered for unlimited data). I checked eligibility on ST’s website, it said all good. I ordered the sim and it never came. Called ST, they said they fixed it, it never came. Called again, they said they fixed it again, it never came. Called again, they said I need to call Verizon to make sure my iPhone can actually be used because their system says something is wrong. I just ordered another sim card (didn’t pay this time, registered instead). Any insight into this mess?

    I am already a straight talk customer my question is a friend gave me their iphone 6s and they are with t-mobile. The iphone is unlocked so can I put an AT&T SIM card in the iphone? I get good service off the AT&T network where I live

    I spoke to an Apple Genius yesterday and they agreed that it’s best to buy “factory unlocked” from Apple and then use Straighttalk. The other unlocks are never truly right. The internet supports this view also. I want to use it in traveling and this is the better way to go. Also one can switch carriers. I was thinking I was having problems with my old iPhone 4 due to Straightalk but it just my iPhone wearing out after 51/2 years. I changed my sTaightalk to a cheap $19.95 cell phone until I can get delivery of my new iPhone SE.

    You should see if STaightalk would link to your site. They don’t have anyway of emailing them with questions. Thanks once again for the great information.

      You are welcome. Thank for the kind words. I picked up a new iPhone SE on Thursday at the store. Will have some videos soon.
      Buying an iPhone from Straight Talk does have some advantages for some people, but I do prefer to buy mine SIM free from Apple too.

      I was told a while ago that some ST support people were sending people to smartphonematters.com for help in the past. They have phone support, online chat, and do support on facebook as well.

      Did you get Rose Gold 🙂

    I am going to get the new iPhone SE and Apple says the nana sims will work. I’ll let you know. Verizon has a better tower rating in this area so that is why I was selecting Verizon. I have Straight Talk now on my iPhone 4 and have had no problems with service for three years. Your site was very helpful!

    • Bob Thompson | | Reply

      Hi Carolyn,
      It should work. Order the SIM free phone. I was going to do an article on the SE. i think the iPhone SE is going to be a winner for Straight Talk and other prepaid wireless plans because for $400 you can get a brand new iPhone from Apple that supports most of the same features of the iPhone 6s. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I am glad the article was helpful and let me know how it goes for you.

    When you get a new iPhone from Apple do you buy unlocked or Verizon?

    • Bob Thompson | | Reply

      If you want to use the Straight Talk Verizon network and you want an iPhone 6s I’d say go with the SIM free model. That is what they called the unlocked phone. I haven’t registered one myself on the Verizon network, but readers have been saying it works. They are the same phone really. I did check the IMEI of my SIM free iPhone 6 which I bought from the Apple Store and it is compatible. I didn’t register it though.

      If ATT has decent service in your area using the ST ATT network is a better choice because data speeds are not limited to 5mb like they are on ST’s Verizon network
