Default No more AT&t sim option?

Anyone know what straight talk no longer offers at&t sims on thier main site?

Also, I was planning on porting back to straight talk in April. Will I be able to reactivate my previous at&t sim.

Thanks

This issue began on Friday last week, and there's been no official statement from Straight Talk on this. There's a lengthy thread on this over at Howard Forums, but it's mostly speculation about what's going on - a lot of which leans toward Straight Talk being in negotiations with AT&T, and ceasing sales of AT&T SIMS as a negotiating tactic.

Short answer, no. Never heard of anyone getting their old SIM reactivated, but sometimes you can get them to send you a new SIM for free. Of course this assumes that they will start selling AT&T SIMs again.

Tmobile option in my area kills ATT so no complaints from me. If your already using the ATT or if you can find one someone before they are sold out they will still honor them.

You can still get them from walmart.com when they are not sold out. They often are "out of stock" regularly but then back in stock just as frequent.
They will still activate the AT&T sims even though they don't currently have them for sale. I just did one last night (after a ridiculously long wait time to talk to a rep more than 30 minutes means 4hrs I guess) it took about 5mins once I actually got through to a rep and I had service on my knew phone almost immediately.

In a PM sent to me by SaraST she said the straight talk website is undergoing revision so you don't see this option as of yet.

Yes but I could buy sim from Walmart today, then find out two months from now that straight talk no longer lets at&t branded devices on the network. Ok $20 bucks is no big loss if that happened. But I'd just like to know if straight talk will continue to allow at&t phones for the foreseeable future. Or will they end up changing policy concerning at&t branded phones

There's no t-mobile in my area so I guess if I can't use my at&t sim in the future, I'll go to at&t's prepaid.
