Straight Talk service on an iPhone 5s

Hi Everyone!

I just got straight talk active on my iPhone 5S! It works the same as my iPhone 4S!

Here's the combo I used:

Apple iPhone 5s 16GB (Space Gray) - Unlocked

and

Straight Talk iPhone 5 Nano SIM Card for AT&T


Check out the links below to help work through common issues:

Oh... Youll need to modify the SIM card a smudge if you buy the normal size SIM

Good Luck!

How to Activate Straight Talk

How to Activate Straight Talk:


This tutorial will help you get your old ATT iPhone on to Straight Talk wireless' network.

First were going to need a few things:




So lets first look at what comes in the Bring Your Own Phone Startup Kit:

  • SIM Cards (ATT, ATT Micro, TMobile)

Next, eject your old SIM card using the paperclip. Insert it into the hole and press until the SIM try pops out. Gently separate the new SIM from the card its arrived on and install in the SIM tray and place it back in its slot. The cards are notched and only fit one way. Do Not Turn On Your Phone Yet.

Straight Talk iPhone iMessage Activation

Looking to activate your iPhone on Straight Talk?

So you're stuck on your Straight Talk iPhone iMessage activation? Well you are not alone, read on:

The first thing I tried was rebooting my Straight Talk iPhone; hold the power button until the red slider button appears and then slide it across to power down. Once its shut off, power it back up and check! Some people have said that this fixed the issue right away.

The next thing to try would be connecting it to wifi and seeing if that helps the verification any. This is what fixed mine. For good measure I went back over to StraightTalkSim and reinstalled their APN for my iPhone.

Others have exclaimed that this STILL didnt fix their phones! As a last ditch effort, try this: Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings. This will remove all of your wifi and cellular saved data and clear up your iMessage issue once and for all!

Please note that clearing your Network Settings will remove all saved WiFi passcodes.

Share this page so all of your friends can save on iPhone service!

Let me know in the comments if you are still having issues!
