    Has a human being living in the United States put a Straight Talk nano SIM card into an unlocked Blackberry Passport? If so, did it work for you? Did data work? Straight Talk support assured me that NO Blackberry will work on their network.
    Please do not just link me to somewhere else on this site, I've read plenty of information regarding frequencies.
    I just want to know if someone can actually verify personally that it works or it doesn't.

    GOOGLE what bands the PP supports then GOOGLE what bands are on Straight Talk service. It's not that difficult.

    So there's 250,000 passports sold in the world and no one is using it on straight talk? that's awesome. You didn't answer if data worked on Straight talk. It's not that difficult.

    I can tell you that the Z30 and Q10 work on straight talk. So the whole no blackberry thing is a lazy lie.

    Maybe someone out there exists and hasn't posted in the thread? Maybe people other than you are wondering the answer and are waiting for a response from the thread?

    Have you considered doing the research yourself?

    Is it a GSM or CDMA carrier? Because the passport doesn't support CDMA.

    What bands do they use? Have you tried looking those up?

    Clearly no one has the answer you're looking for, so do the damn research yourself and let us know the answer.

    Maybe someone else will come along with the same question and you will have helped them out.

    Or ya know... don't. Whatever floats your boat.

    That probably referred to old BlackBerry devices that required BIS subscription from their carriers.

    Looks like straight talk offers both gsm and cdma access, with gsm being done through AT&T and T Mobile. As long as you get GSM data, it should work fine with the Passport. Only way to find out is for someone here to take one for the team and actually try it out.

    My understanding is Straight Talk is GSM Based and uses AT&T's network bands, so in theory it should work.
    Now, I'm not sure about the BlackBerry Services if they would work.

    I know for a fact a friend of mine had a BlackBerry on Straight Talk, so whoever you spoke with already has a mark against them.

    Someone just answered that the Z30 and Q10 work. Just find out what models they are and whether the passport supports those bands (spoiler alert, it does)

    There's your answer.

    If anyone does actually try this out, make sure to come back to post about your experience and whether you are getting LTE.

    Interesting tidbit here about how to determine which network Straight Talk is signing you up for:

    http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2011...aight.html?m=1

    "To tell if a GSM phone is homed on T-Mobile or AT&T:

    If you are buying the phone in a store look for the product number on the box under the barcode. If it ends in P4, R4 or P4P, like TFLG800GTMP4P it's AT&T. If it ends in P5, R5 or P5P like TFLG800GTMP5 ;it's T-Mobile.

    Most Tracfone, NET10 and Straight Talk phones also have a network code on the box. It's usually in the lower left corner on the front of the box. These codes are: CDMA-S = Sprint, CDMA-V = Verizon, GSM-A = AT&T; GSM-T = T-Mobile.

    If you already have the phone, find the SIM ID in the Prepaid menu. The first six numbers of the ID determine the carrier:890126 = T-Mobile,890141 = AT&T

    Or look at the SIM itself. AT&T Tracfone SIMs have a code on them ending in C4, like TF64SIMC4. If the SIM has a code ending in T5, like TFSIMT5, it's for T-Mobile."

    You don't have to be rude when asking for help on an issue. It is no one's fault that the service is not used by people that are trying to provide assistance. Buy it, try it, and find out.

    People gave you a place to look so you could look it up yourself. Does you mother still hand feed you to?

    Edit: also straight talk uses several different networks including Verizon.
