    I'm getting this new phone in a few days, on ebay it states it is Unlocked
    without any branded labels, etc...

    Does anyone know what needs to be done to set it up to work with Cingular?

    Can I use my insurance I have with Cingular and put this phone under the
    plan?

    Thanks in advance!
    Kevin

    Just plug your sim in and you're ready to go. i understand Cingular is
    selling the phone now, so maybe they'll insure it.

    If its in a cingular Box and they recognize the imei number as one of
    theres, than you should be fine, if NOT

    Than NO to all your questions.

    Not true on the first. If the phone is unlocked, it will work just
    peachy on Cingular. I have bought several unlocked phones on eBay and
    simply dropped my existing sim into them. Examples of phones I have
    used from eBay: An ericsson T39, and R380W and right now a Treo 600. I
    don't know what networks the T39 and r380 came from, but for sure the
    Treo did not come from Cingular.

    Both of my daughters have pay as you go (Go Phone) sims that are running
    with phones that I bought second hand from eBay. They are a cost
    effective solution for teenagers who can lose or destroy the phone.
    Since it's pay as you go, and it never has more than 20 bucks on it, the
    consequences of the phone getting lost at a coffee shop are very
    limited. I bought the phones for around 30 bucks each.

    I agree, I have an unlocked V3I from ebay that works great on Cingular.

    So, there is no settings necessary, I just drop the sim card, and everything
    will be cingular functional? I'll try it - I haven't received it yet, but
    hopefully it'll work! thanks!
