Contract Phone with GoPhone SIM card! Help!!!

by charles32533 / November 4, 2009 7:16 AM PST

A couple yeras ago I bought a Motorola V3 off of Ebay, when it was just a contract phone, and I put my GoPhone SIM card in the phone and it worked perfectly. Now I need a new phone, and I dont have a contact and Im not going to get one, and I was wondering if I could get a Pantech Matrix off of Ebay and use my SIM card in the phone? Would the phone still work with the GoPhone SIM card? Please help!!!

Thank you!

The phone will work just fine w/ your current SIM card on PrePaid.

Is that with every AT&T phone? Could I get like the Sony Ericsson C905a and still use my SIM card?

It doesn't matter which At&t phone, in fact most unlocked GSM phones w/ the correct frequencies will work fine. Just swap your SIM into the new/replacement phone and your mobile # will automatically follow w/ the SIM card. Most of the time there is no need to even call At&t after you do it. There is nothing special about an At&t SIM card for prepaid or postpaid service as they are basically the same.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
