Sim card switch

I have a straight talk IPhone 6s that I wanted to put my at&t Sim card into and it's telling me that I need to remove the device from my current at&t account so I can add the Sim card to it. I'm just co fused cause it shouldn't be on an account cause it's just a tracphone from Straight talk brand

TracFone and Straight Talk are two different carriers. If you have not unlocked the phone from your previous service provider it may not work with a new service provider.  Neither TracFone or straight talk has anything to do with AT&T other than those businesses resale AT&T services.

Hi @Annemarie98! Let's address your SIM swap inquiry!


To use your device on another carrier, please make sure it is unlocked and not active on an AT&T account as @formerlyknownas stated. Sign In your account to update your device. Unlock your device for AT&T locked devices and check out our device unlock requirements. 


We hope this helps! Reach back out to us if you have additional questions. Thank you for reaching out to the community!
