Straight Talk users...Had to order a new phone since mine is teaking out.

I currently have straight talk and my phone is tweaking out. I was wondering since straight talk is through trac phone if I could just buy a trac phone and put my straight talk sim card in it. Are trac phone/ straight talk phone sim cards the same?

Thanks, I have to get a new phone now = (

Stupid phone froze on me. I could not even turn it off so I removed the battery. Once I put the battery back in and turned it back on it did the same thing. So I took the battery out again. Now its really tweaking out. The screen is all messed up and backwards on top of being frozen.

Do you have straight talk?

Or do you have a trac fone?

Straight talk is through trac fone but trac fones are not suppose to have sim cards. My straight talk phone has one too but unfortialtey I cant use my current card in my new phone so im losing out on aournd 400minutes. Its dumb.

I used to have the one you just ordered..... careful with the screen. It breaks REALLY easily. Like.... waaaay easily. I had 2 of them in a 2 month span.Then I got my iPhone.

Thanks, thats good to know. The one I currently have I have had for about six months and it started tweaking on me today. I like that the new one is not a flip phone. It reminds me of a blackberry. I will just be carefull with it, I will have to get a protective case for it or something.
