Att sim card in tmoble phone

In reply to: HOW CAN I PUT A SIM CARD IN AN OLDER PHONE

If the phone you have is a old att phone, the answer is no. Normally you can call the cell phone company to get the unlock code for the phone but since cingular bought att, cingular will not give out att unlock codes, Sorry hope this helps.

You could pay someone to unlock the Samsung phone and it should work.

to use that older phone..you have to unlock the phone. go unlock it online or go to your nearest cell retail dealer. dont go to the actual stores. just go to a unofficial place. dont let them keep your phone, they can send you the code through email
