Question about Cell Phones
Try it and see what happens.
If the handset refuses to accept the SIM card, then you will need to get the handset "unlocked". How this is done depends on what brand (ie. Nokia, Sony-Ericcson, etc) the phone is.
For the simpler phones (most Nokia models), you can buy unlocking codes on the net (see any of the advertisements lurking on the edge of your screen as you read this!).
Some models need special cables and software. If in doubt, pop into an independent mobile phone repair shop, and they will probably do the job for a small fee while you wait. The other advantage of doing it this way is that if it all goes wrong, it's up to them (not you) to sort out the mess.
