Straight Talk and Net 10 have removed both regular and micro SIM cards and reference to AT&T in its BYOD SIM program in general. The AT&T-based LG Optimus Logic and Extreme are also gone from Straight talk’s handset lineup. So, this is definitely not a case of getting out of stock of certain products. More likely, it appears that America Movil and its brands are no longer under network agreement with the AT&T.
In locations where AT&T is the only carrier, where users have no other options, Straight Talk and Net 10 handsets that use AT&T network are still available. That certainly gives us a hope that customers will be thought of in this situation. Hopefully, current Straight Talk and Net 10 AT&T-based users will be allowed to keep using the service indefinitely.
Even though AT&T SIMs are removed from Straight Talk and Net 10 websites, AT&T SIM cards can still be found online at Walmart, Amazon, BestBuy and ShopCellDeals.
None of the parties involved has confirmed or even commented on this matter at the time of this writing and probably won’t be in the near future, given that how hard it is to get facts from TracFone’s representatives. However, since large number of customers is affected with this new situation, some statement will have to be provided from those concerned.
