    I have a ST ATT regular sim older than 2 years. I cut it to a micro sim card size so it will fit into my OPO. But I am only getting H+ speed with different APN settings. Do I need to buy a new micro sim from ST to get 4G/LTE?

    Switched to ST 2 weeks ago when I got the One. No complaints and took 15-20mins for my phone to start receiving signal. Very fast sim delivery and easy setup. Not sure if there's 4G in my area but 3G is quicker than I had on Vzn with an iPhone 4.

    I switched from Verizon (Galaxy S3) to Straight Talk ATT with my OPO today. Phone worked as soon as I restarted it. Used the preset APN and all is working great (voice, text and 4G).

    Yes. Your SIM is too old. I was in the same boat. I ordered a new micro from ST/Net10, then go on their website and transfer from old SIM to new SIM. It only took about 5 min. Then, rebooted the phone and I have 4G.

    This is a little older thread but after you switched over does your plan continue or do you have to set it up again? I have the auto billing thing and didn't know if i would have to set it up again?

    I can't receive text. I've called ST and they said it's the other person's phone. Really?

    I currently have ST verizon do you know if the One works on that. I have been seeing it said to work on ST ATT but no mention of the verizon straight talk. Are they the same thing just different areas because to my little understanding of straight talk they just use the towers verizon and at&t have in the area. So would I have to switch from vrizon ST to ATT ST to have this phone and if so would my bills or anything else change? Also to activate the One on straight talk do you have to buy the BYOP kit?

    I compared bandwidths for the OPO and Straight Talk in our area first to make sure they would work. If you email them they provide it rather quickly. They are also very helpful in setting up data as well.

    Getting LTE on my OPO with ATT straight talk was pretty easy. I installed my sim card that I had in my Motorola G which was only getting HSPA+.

    In the "About phone" option, it said I had HSPA+ service and showed my phone number, but my OPO was not getting any signal. Couldn't text, receive or place calls. No surfing.

    I kept playing with the settings. Made sure I clicked on the ATT Straight talk option. Make sure you click on the "radial" next to it and it is highlighted.

    Then I went onto straight talk website. Since I have an account, I log onto my account using my desktop and under the "My Account Summary" you should see the option that says "Add Device to my Account".

    I typed in my IMEI serial number on phone and then typed in my phone number attached to my Straight Talk sim card. Saved it. Since I was sleepy when I did this, I just turned my phone off and when I got up and turned phone on, I noticed I got a msg from Straight Talk saying I had 7 days remaining before account was due. So I knew I now got service. But phone was still connected to my wifi and didnt see anything stating I was on LTE. So turned off wifi. Viola! LTE icon on top of phone screen. Not 4g but LTE. Not sure what speeds I am getting since I haven't ran a speed test but was happy to see that I have LTE on my OPO.

    I received my one yesterday afternoon and quickly had it up and running on StraightTalk. Since I had the wrong size sim from my previous phone, I've been with ST for 2 years and it was not LTE either, I ordered a new AT&T LTE micro sim from straight talk and transferred my old number over to the new phone and sim. I had everything working great and then as other apps installed, the phone updated, suddenly I was unable to send or receive texts. I spent some time on the phone with ST support and they concluded I needed to contact OnePlus to figure out how to set the "message sender number".

    I have heard about customer service nightmares at OnePlus so I spent some time on the blogs and found my problem. I had enabled Voice+ after the software upgrade and restart. This enabled all apps to send SMS messages through Google Voice. This does not work with ST. Once disabled everything is working great again.

    If T-Mobile is good in your area. I would recommend going to MetroPCS. I used to have straight talk which, after taxes, was $48.

    I pay $60(flat) on Metro and get truly unlimited data. So far I've used 15gigs this month - I don't have internet in my new condo yet.
    Also the ping is MUCH lower on metro, so internet feels so much more responsive.

    Martyong,

    I've had my oneplus on StraighTalk since Nov 1 last year. My previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy Nexus so I had to purchase a different micro sim online from WalMart. I inserted the sim, called StraighTalk and was switched over to the oneplus within about 5 minutes.

    Everything worked great for a few hours till I set up Google voice. At that point sms stopped working altogether. After checking on this forum I realized that I had to disable Voice+. I had called StraighTalk customer service prior to looking here and they told me the phone was defective. (Not the best customer service but ST is cheap...) Since then everything has been great!

    Where I live I usually have a strong lte signal and the phone has exceeded my expectations. I had two people as about it just at dinner last night! It works great, looks like a million bucks, and is much cheaper than the Nexus 6 I thought I wanted before it came out and I saw the size/price. For the price and quality of the phone you'd have to be a moron to get anything else. Especially given that they have no invite needed days!

    I say go for it! You won't be disappointed as long as you have decent AT&T signal strength in your area!

    Heres my settings...

    If you have any questions just ask. I'm no expert. Just a happy opo ST user!
