    Hi,

    I shall be glad if someone could advise me correctly on this one:

    I wanted to replace a cell phone (on T-Mobile Prepaid) with another model.

    Can any unlocked tri-/quad-band GSM phone be used? Is transferring the SIM
    card all one has to do? The user (in the family) uses the phone only for
    phone calls - no messaging, Internet or anything else.

    Any other relevant information would be very useful and welcome.

    Thanks and regards.

    Shiva

    So far I've switched my tMobile prepaid SIM between three phones with no
    problems: 2 different Nokias and a Motorola. I don't think any of them are tri
    or quad-band... just 1900 as far as I know.

    One thing you probably do want to do is to save your names/phone numbers to SIM
    if you're currently keeping them in the phone's memory.

    Re: Basic SIM Card transfer question

    Hi,

    Thanks for the responses! The info is reassuring. I am sure the transfer
    will go fine now. The stored numbers (actually just a handful) have already
    been written down!

    Regards.

    I know that the OP doesn't use sms but a relative from europe wanted to use
    my t-mobile sim on a visit here, when they put it in their Sony Ericsson
    phone all of the saved sms messages were deleted. The phone did work ok but
    the sms were lost, even when the other sim was replaced.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the all responses. No, the user does not do SMS or anything at
    all except use the phone for the occasional phone call. The original phone
    is being replaced actually with a simpler one that does not have all the
    bells and whistles not used at all and which may be confusing actually!

    Regards.
