Since the Infuse is not a CDMA phone, tell us again how this works...?
Also, from the straighttalk.com TOS:
"If you are using your own unlocked phone with a Straight Talk SIM card, it must be compatible, and not interfere with, our service, and must comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations. Devices capable only of using data service are strictly prohibited and Your use of any such device is grounds for immediate deactivation and termination of your service without a refund. You are responsible for ensuring that any unlocked wireless phone that you use is compatible with the Straight Talk wireless service and that your phone meets all Federal laws and standards. You are further responsible for the purchase and maintenance of any additional hardware, software and/or internet access required in order to use the Straight Talk service. Straight Talk service will only work with wireless devices that are compatible with our network. Not all services are available with all wireless devices or on all networks. We may remotely change your wireless phone’s software, applications or programming without notice. This could affect your stored data, your phone’s programming and how you are able to use your wireless phone.
It seems pretty clear that they want Android devices limited to their CDMA network, which makes you in violation of the Terms of Service you agreed to when you signed up. Good luck with that.
SIM card will only work with an AT&T or T-mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone. To activate your service, you will need a Straight Talk Unlimited 30-day Service Plan card or credit card. Some data services may not be available with all wireless devices. BlackBerrys and branded TracFone, SafeLink, NET10 or Straight Talk phones will not work with this program. In order for your phone’s data services to work, you must update your APN data settings, also called the Access Point Name. SIM card and Service Plan are not refundable.
