    I have an att nokia phone and have not been converted over to cingular
    yet.
    I want to purchase an unlocked motorola v551 and hook it up to cingular
    service but I have heard that my att sim card may not function properly
    in the new phone. Anyone know anything about this?

    Re: switching sim cards - att to cingular

    Zeebster,
    You don't "get converted" (at least not in the GSM sense) "to Cingular". ATT
    and Cingular are now covering different areas, so if you went out of your
    area under which you normally see "ATT WIRELESS" on your phone into an area
    that Cingular covers, you'll see "Cingular Wireless" on your phone. When
    your phone boots up, you'll probably see an ATT screen, but the phone will
    jump to whatever tower has the stronger signal (either Cingular or ATT).
    You can purchase an unlocked Motorola GSM phone and put your SIM chip from
    your ATT phone in it and it should work perfectly well.
    Hope this helps,
    Steve
