BYOPhone: A Guide to Switching to Straight Talk in 3 Simple Steps

Breaking up with your current carrier doesn't have to be a hassle - even if you don't want to give up your phone. We’re bringing you a three-step guide to our Keep Your Own Phone program, so you can see how simple it is to switch to Straight Talk and save.

Step 1:

See if your phone is compatible with Straight Talk.

Step 2:

Buy an Activation Kit and Service Plan.

The Activation Kit allows your phone to work on our service with either a SIM card or a network access code. The Service Plan lets you choose how much talk, text and data you’ll need each month.

Step 3:

Activate your phone on Straight Talk.

With an Activation Kit in hand and a Service Plan set up, you can follow the simple directions on our activation page to activate your phone. You’ll even get to choose to keep your old number or a pick a new one if you prefer.

That’s it! If you need more help purchasing your Activation Kit or Service Plan or setting things up, you can find assistance at your local Walmart store, contact us via phone or chat, or send us a message on our social media channels.
