    Thanks in advance.
    I wanted to lodge a complaint about T-Mobile non-contract service in the Atlanta Suburbs. I bought an unlocked nokia 1208 T-Mobile phone on February 2, 2009. For the longest time I couldn't access the number of minutes I had left. On April 25th, I was preparing to journey back north where I live during the summer and fall. I stopped at T Mobile on Chastain Road in Kennesaw. How do I find my minutes, I asked? Dial #999# then hit the green phone. He demonstrated, it worked. I tried a couple of times before driving out of town. It worked. But when I tried it again at the five star gas station in Paducah, Kentucky, I could not actuate those minutes. In fact, though I kept T-mobile service the entire way back to Sparta, Wisconsin where I live, getting two to five bars SIGNAL, I've never been able to find the minutes I have left on my unlocked T-Mobile phone AGAIN. Wednesday night (5-13) I went to the T-Mobile shop on Chastain Road in Kennesaw again. The tech there couldn't get it to work. He called Network, they had no answer. Finally, he put my sim in a locked store phone from the shelf. It worked. He suggested I complain to Nokia. I did. The Nokia tech said the T-mobile tech's test was not a fair one. He put my sim into a locked off the shelf T-mobile store phone which has the whole network programmed into it, unlike my unlocked phone. He was right. If you leave the host area where you bought the unlocked nokia 1208, you won't get minutes information from the cell again. T-MOBILE OF ATLANTA HAS PROGRAMMED UNLOCKED NOKIA 1208 NON-CONTRACTS TO DENY ONE THAT CRITICAL INFORMATION IF ONE LEAVES THE AREA OF PURCHASE!

    Revol doesnt use sim cards but you can use most verizon or sprint phones. I just did it with a sprint phone. Only downfall is you cant get internet or picture messages. Everything else is good. $40 to activate it but is cheaper than a new phone.

    It depends whether they run on GSM or CDMA technology.

    no you can not switch if it is gsm, as they only providers in the usa for gsm are att and T-Mobile, however att and T-Mobile are switching to a new technology called lte in 2010. Also Verizon and T-Mobile will also use the LTE technology while Sprint will stay with CDMA and Wimax for its technology.... Also a gsm phone from europe or asia will not work on att or T-Mobile as the gsm frequency overseas use a different frequency then in the usa.

    Is better to get a unlock phone or one that is already ready to go. I mean I know when a phone is unlock you can use it on any service. But does it change the phone any from when it wasn't unlock??
