Straight Talk How To Activate (iPhone 4/4s/5)

I love using Straight Talk on my AT&T iPhone 4s! Here is an easy tutorial on how you can use your AT&T iPhone 4s with a cheaper Straight Talk plan. This will help you set up your old AT&T iPhone on to Straight Talk wireless' network.

Then remove your old SIM card using the paperclip or a thin wire. Insert the wire into the hole and press until the SIM try pops out. Gently separate the new SIM from the card and place the SIM in the SIM tray and put it back in its slot. The cards are notched and only fit one way. Do Not Turn On Your Phone Yet.
