Straight Talk Nano SIM

No more scary scissors or expensive cutters required to use a Moto X on Straight Talk

Prepaid phone MVNO Straight Talk is opening up its SIM card options today by offering the smallest of the bunch, Nano SIMs, for anyone bringing their own phone to the network. More and more popular devices — such as the Moto X, new Droids and recent iPhones — are taking advantage of the smaller SIM form factor, previously forcing folks to purchase Micro SIMs and cut them down to size manually.

Nano SIMs are available online for just $6.99 — the same price as the other SIM sizes — and can be selected whether you're planning on using T-Mobile or AT&T bands on the carrier. Hit the source link below to order yours.

Probably mostly for iPhone folks. But good to have options if needed.

hmm. I bought the BYOP bundle and it came with several nano sims (tmo, verizon, att), I guess this is new because it can be sold separately?

It will work. Tell vz u r going out of the country. U need ur phone unlock for international calls. They will give the unlock code now u jump ship to other carriers.

It would work, but you most likely won't get LTE. All Verizon LTE phones are sold unlocked. However, Verizon LTE bands are different than what AT&T and T-Mobile use.

I don't think so. While ST does sell phones that run off Verizon, I'm fairly certain that SIMs sold for BYOD are either ATT or TMob only. In fact if you look in the pic on the article it says sims are for unlocked GSM phones, which Verizon are not.

Currently, AT&T operates its network on 4 different bands, if you're looking at the 3G / 4G frequencies. AT&T's 3G uses the 850 and 1900MHz bands (aka bands 5 and 2, respectively), while its 4G LTE service uses bands 4 and 17. Verizon Moto X has access to bands 700 (band 13), 850 (band 5), 1700/2100 (band 4), 1900 (band 2) MHz for LTE. long story short, yes, yes you can...if you live in a Band 4 area.

As dusoccer said, it would work because all Verizon LTE phones are unlocked, and the Moto X has GSM hardware compatible with AT&T, but you won't get LTE. You'll only get HSPA+.
