    Using Unlocked Phone With New Provider

    Advertisement



    I am new to the site guys, lots of great information here... I have been searching the forums, but can't seem to find an answer to my question. My friend just gave me a Cingular Pearl and I currently have Sprint. I understand how to unlock the phone, but I do not have a Sprint SIM card (currently have a Razor). Do I just call up Sprint and give them the information of the unlocked Pearl to activate it? What do I do since I don't have a SIM card??? Any help to clear up this issue would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Sprint's a CDMA carrier, Cingular (AT&T) is GSM. Kinda like trying to watch a UHF TV channel on a TV that only gets VHF. Can't be done. You would need a CDMA version of a Pearl. Or, you need to switch to AT&T, TMobile, or another local carrier (like Cincinatti Bell) that uses GSM network technology
