I just got an iphone 5s from a friend, because my android phone broke. i need to move my ACTIVE STRAIGHT TALK NUMBER from the android to the iphone 5s. Both tracfone and straight talk customer service have been ABSOLUTELY USELESS. i tried moving my original unlocked gsm straight talk sim card to my iphone and it wasn’t compatible. so i ordered a new sim card from straight talk but it didn’t work either.
my question is: WHAT SIM CARD is compatible with carrier “TFW 35.0” (listed as the carrier in my about phone settings)?? straight talk has AT&T, Verizon, and t-mobile (which i tried and it didn’t work) available!!!

The only people that can move your service to the new phone is Straight Talk. By not compatible do you mean it does not fit? You can get adapters or cutters to adjust SIM card sizes. But you need to be careful that you don't damage the card doing that or you will need a new card.

Is this iPhone 5s unlocked? And is it a model Straight Talk said can work on their service?
