    An elephant sat on my T-Mobile GSM phone, and I need to replace it.
    T-Mo will let me upgrade to a Nokia 6101 for only $170 (cough, cough) if
    I sign a 1-year contract extension.

    I've seen the same phone for sale around town and on Amazon for use with
    T-Mobile's prepaid "To Go" product, for $145-$150. If I buy a T-Mo
    prepaid Nokia 6101, can I put my own (contract) T-Mo SIM in it? Or are
    the prepaid Nokia's modified in some way at the factory to prevent such
    use (or perhaps are they recognizable as prepaid-only to the T-Mo
    network, regardless of the SIM inside)?

    Thanks for any tips!

    I believe the the T-Mo ToGo phones are SIM-locked differently than the T-Mo
    contract phones. Better not take any chances and just buy an unlocked Nokia
    6101 on eBay. E.g.:
