This article was really helpful to me. Figured I’d share it with you but save you sometime. Basically, its not a piece of cake to bring a phone from a different carrier too straight talk.

They found that data speeds were comparable to the higher priced carriers. 15Mbs down.
This looks like a great alternative to these ridiculously priced mobile plans. While you do get unlimited talk text and web it should be noted that they don’t know at what point they will get throttled speeds
