Where is a sim slot for lg as740


It is a CDMA technology phone that doesn't work with GSM carriers, such as Airtel, MTN and Zamtel. Basically, I don't know how it could work for you. Even with a GSM SIM I think it's still CDMA technology.

Unlock my samsung fascinate


Im pretty sure Telus is CDMA and therefore can't really be used on other networks except for other CDMA networks, and even so if you do want to use it on other CDMA networks it is near impossible as Carriers are very stringent on letting people use other devices on their networks. Its like trying to use the EVO 4G on Verizon, although CDMA its near impossible. Hope this answer helps smile.gif
I have heard no because the phone has hardware that is fine tuned to Verizon and/or Telus' networks and frequencies. Cell phones in the US operate much differently than other parts of the world where all you need is a SIM card and your good to go on another network.
Verizon has a CDMA network and AT&T has a GSM. They are incompatible. Even if you have say a T-Mobile GSM phone, it's not going to work on AT&T's GSM network, nor is it going to work on Vodaphone's GSM network in the UK, because in the US the carriers hard code the phones to their networks, and the FCC has regulated different "bands" of GSM here than what is in use in Europe and the rest of the world.

I do think Verizon and Sprint, since they both use the same CDMA data frequencies, do share data networks in many places, but the voice CDMA2000 part of your phone is still hard locked to your respective network.

If you get an unlocked GSM phone in the UK, you CAN use that phone with other carriers in the UK, because they don't make them locked down to specific networks there

Just don't know where to place my sim card for my HTC ERIS


Hey, I am sorry but the HTC DROID ERIS is a CDMA phone and not a GSM phone which means that it will not work on any GSM network worldwide. GSM networks use SIM cards whereas CDMA networks do not use sim cards. This phone is a CDMA phone means it works without a sim card and will not have a slot for you sim card. a list of specifications for theHTC DROID ERIS is available here

I bought This Phone From India and I Try To Use in USA But Everytime i put my sim card but its saw me No Serivce, Can u Halp me ?


India networks use either the GSM900 and GSM1800 protocols. . Delhi itself and much of Northern India is on the GSM900 standard.


Cellphone users in the USA subscribe to carriers that use one of two technology standards. : GSM (global system for mobile communications) or
CDMA (code division multiple access).


GSM is used by T-Mobile and Cingular.
CDMA is used by Verizon and Sprint.

You will have to get the correct SIM card/phone to call in the USA.

The FCC has set stringent parameters for cell phone emissions Standards. Only cell phones manufactured to these Standards are sold in the USA. Make sure your phone is not doing more damage to your health.

Telus Blackberry 8830 World Edition with Rogers SIM?


Unfortunately, you can't use the current Storm model on Rogers. The Telus network is CDMA (Rogers is GSM), which means Telus' wireless products do not use SIM cards :-(
If it's any consolation, there is supposed to be a Blackberry Storm released soon that will use SIM cards and could be used on Rogers.

Verizon?


Hello,

The carriers who use non sim phones for their network are most likely to use a CDMA 450Mhz Network. Most phones with a sim slot will work on GSM 900-1800-1900 Mhz bands, with their subdivisions (like 850-950 domain, 1800-1850). A phone with a sim card uses a RF module tuned on a specific range of frequencies. The major ones are GSM, CDMA and UMTS (HSDPA included). There are phones with support for GSM + UMTS - most 3g phones available on marked. In your case, a GSM HTC touch Dual will work on gsm networks. For verizon or other cdma networks, HTC produces a CDMA version of the Touch Dual. If you have the gsm version (the one that needs a sim) you should use it on gsm carriers.

Hope this helps.
