TracFone, Net 10 and Straight Talk remove AT&T SIMs and other related products from their websites

TracFone, Net 10 and Straight Talk remove AT&T SIMs and other related products from their websitesFew days ago, PhoneNews reported that AT&T SIM cards and other AT&T related products are no longer available for purchase from TracFone, Net 10 and Straight Talk’s website.

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.

    I wonder if AT&T will kill all of their MVNO’s, and sell prepaid themselves, increasing their profit margins.

  • Mike says:

    I doubt it. They already had GoPhone when they entered into all the MVNO contracts. You have to wonder if ST’s horrible customer service had something to do with it.

  • Plan Delaware says:

    Well, the talking heads @ ST’s customer (dis)service deny there is a problem and, while the website’s phone ;isting has removed the Extreme and Logic the phones remain on their tutorial page. ST’s new $249 “Showtime” is strangely similar to a $200 unit being offered by Boost. If enough buyers compare the two they may be reducing the price of loosing sales…

    My optimus extreme worked great until the end of january.
    I only used it to watch about 20 mins of youtube each day.

    The last month has been hell, it takes 20 mins to watch a 10 min video. Constant buffering, while my friends watch videis no prob on straight talk in the same room. I tried factory reset, calling customer service, nothing helps. I wonder if it is related to them pulling the phone
