    I've got a Nokia N95 on a monthly contract with Orange in the UK. Would I
    be able to use the SIM in an unlocked Motorola, or will it be locked to
    Orange?

    (Sorry if stupid question, I haven't much knowledge of these things)

    Thanks.

    You'll be able to use the SIM on most available handsets with virtually no
    problem, as far as voice and text calls. However the N95 will be locked to
    Orange and it'll cost you about £15 to £20 to get it unlocked by them if you
    want to use a different carrier's SIM in it.

    Where you will have a problem with the Motorola is getting the settings
    right to be able to send pictures/MMS messages, though it shouldn't take you
    too long to find the settings and tap them in.

    Thanks for that. Texts should be easy enough though, on the Motorola,
    shouldn't they? I'm hoping to use it when I go into town at night, then I
    don't risk losing the N95 or getting it nicked :-)
    Can I just say, about the Nokia, I can't believe this all-singing,
    all-dancing phone doesn't have a text message reminder beep... unlike the
    new Samsung & Motorola models.

    Cheers

    What is "text message reminder beep"? Never heard of such.

    If you're sent a text but don't hear the initial alert, some phones - like
    the Motorola V600 I used to have - will 'beep' every few minutes to remind
    you that you've got an unread text.

    Now I thought there was only me that was that paranoid about having my best
    'phone swiped Pop your sim in the Moto, remembering of course that the
    Moto isn't as swish as the N95, and try a call and text.

    The beep you mention is the missed call reminder and it's been on Motos for
    many years, I've had Motos for many years There are plenty of
    downloadable call reminder applications for the N95 but I would have
    expected such a high spec. 'phone to have a simple, audible reminder built
    in.

    Now to your intended use. Why don't you get a PAYG sim from Tesco (value
    sim), put say £20 credit on it and *permanently* put that in the Moto for
    when you visit "dodgy" town nights? When you go on the razzle you can
    divert all calls to the tesco sim, divert all to voicemail or leave the
    Orange mobile off. Anyone who then wants to get hold of you can call your
    alternate number. This limits the damage any scumbag can cause on your pay
    monthly Orange account and leaves your N95 in a more secure location -
    possibly.
