    I don't think Tracfone is GSM. It will need to be GSM in order to be used with T-Mobile.

    Tracfone uses CDMA. Not GSM.

    No. Tracfone uses special frimware that only allows tracfone SIMs to be used in tracfone phones. Non-tracfone SIMs wont work in a tracfone phone. And tracfone SIMs wont work in a non-tracfone phone. This is in the firmware and cannot be unlocked. All you can do is reflash a tracfone phone. But the tracfone SIM would still be useless without a tracfone phone.

    In other words, no, a tmobile SIM wont work in a tracfone.

    BTW. Tracfone is GSM, CDMA, and even in the past TDMA. It all depends on the area you sign up in, and what type of phone you buy. If you get a GSM tracfone it will roam for free. If you get a CDMA tracfone then roaming outside of the local coverage area will roam at 2x the local rate.

    Re: tracfone

    I thought that if a phone has a sim card, it is not cdma.

    Anyhow, I have a tracfone and an unlocked razr v3. The tracfone sim does not work in the razr--it will not acquire a network and only allows emergency calls.

    I guess thats the firmware discussed above. Is there any way to hack the firmware?

    Thanks!
