Default Straight talk service

People with straight talk I have some questions about signing up for straight talk. Today when I went through the menus to get a Sim card and plan card to the point where you enter you're zip code. When I do only at&t sim comes up. Does that mean that in my area I can only use at&t? I don't want at&t I want T-Mobile.

I had the same problem what i realized was that straight talk don't make micro sd card for t-mobile they only make it for att. So when you pick micro it only lets you order it for att. I have to say i ordered the att one and it's amazing! you won't be disappointed, great coverage!

With straight talk can you get a prepaid plan that is for talking only and not for data?

I ask because I use wifi (I carry a hot spot with me) for calls and data but if I find I am in an area that my wifi does not work and I need to make a call I want a sim and service plan to make that call.
