Cheap cell phone with no contract

Recommended Posts

So I can't use my sim card in an un-locked phone that I bought off e-bay or somewhere?

You can if the other company uses the same technology. Cingular can use unlocked T-Mobile phones and vice versa.


Use the phonescoop's search engine to see what might be compatible:



Remember to look at the technology the phone uses, if you have Cingular or T-Mobile, you'll want a phone with GSM850 / GSM1900 at the very least.


Some phones come tri-band, and most Motorolas for Cing or T-Mo are quad-band, but it won't matter, a Cingular or T-Mo customer will only be using the GSM850 / GSM1900 bands anyway. The other bands are for other countries.

If you want me to double-check before you buy something, just drop me a PM with the details. http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/Marcster2005/Smileys/10.gif
