    That is something only Straight Talk can do. It's their SIM (literally), they can disconnect it from the service and account. Surely they have procedures to identify a customer? Ask to speak to a supervisor if first line customer service can't help.

    However, you've not said whether this is a contract or pre-pay - I can imagine the latter being trickier (and don't know how much info they have about pre-pay customers). And if it's prepay the credit may be spent by the time you sort this.

    Did you report the theft to the police? I don't know Straight Talk's procedures, but for some things having a police reference helps. Straight Talk should be able to tell you whether that's the case here.

    1st, report it stolen and get a copy of the police report 2nd, Call straight talk and tell them it's been reported as stolen and you have a police report, and you want that Sim deactivated and new one to replace it.
