    I wanted to put my experience out there on the internet in case someone else is contemplating switching service to Straight Talk with their Exhibit 4G

    I called up and got my unlock code from T-Mobile in less than one day.
    I ordered my AT&T SIM card from Straight Talk for unlocked phones.
    Swapped out the SIM card.

    I now have full 3G speeds and stable service EVERYWHERE. (T-Mobile service is lacking in Arkansas.)

    $45 for and Android unlimited everything that WORKS! (No thank you, Boost)

    Hello I saw your post and wanted to ask a question. I have the same exact setup as you do, however im only getting edge speeds, and not 3g as reported by most users. I set my apn settings per instructions thst came with the att Sim card activation kit. Did you do any other special settings to get the 3g speeds? If so can you share? Thank you in advance. Much peace & kindness!

    Not sure where in Arkansas you're referring to... but up in the NW corner around Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, and Fayetteville... T-Mobile service is great. Strong 4G service all around that area.

    Near Ft. Smith we're in a T-mobile dead zone. We have only a couple of towers outside of town and the service doesn't roam well on AT&T towers. Thus, in this area, we get 3g if you're lucky.

    I want to change my phone from t-mobile to straight Talk can some one help me out? If I can't get the unlock codes from t-mobile do I need to root it to unlock it for straight Talk? Thanks.

    I went and bought the Samsung Exhibit and got the straight talk sim card for Tmobile phone; ATT service is bad in my area I have great 4g works great for a cost of total with tax $46 unlimited everything with 6 months paid in advance. What else could you want.

    Hi, can anyone advise the quickest way to switch from T Mobile's prepaid to Straight Talk? I have different things some saying that it is not possible, and other's say that it is. I called Straight Talk, and they advised me that I needed to know the type of SIM card on my Samsung S2. I have no clue, and thought that they would know this info. Any help would be appreciated.
