You can get a prepaid SIM card from any cell phone provider of your choice.
The only problem is that if your cell phone is locked to your current cell phone provider, you need to get a restriction code from that phone provider to unlock your phone so you can use any SIM card.
To test is your cell phone to see if it is unlocked, insert a SIM card from a different cell phone provider to see if the cell phone works and can dial out.
If not contact your cell phone provider and advise them you are going overseas and you wisk to use a prepaid SIM card in another country and would like the restriction code to unlock your cell phone.
If your cell phone provider will not provide any assistance, then please get back to me for further assistance.

    I can only offer these suggestions -

    Contact your phone provider to see if you can change the phone plan to a prepaid one.

    It may cost you to terminate your existing contract.


    Contact a different phone provider to see if they offer a prepaid phone plan.

    Make sure your HTC will work on their network.

Htc incredible keeps saying droid and loop[ing from white htc screen to "droid" screen

Try to update to the latest android version. Your carrier might help you with this because it is so new. However if you dropped it (etc.) and your carrier doesn't replace it for you, You can get the part at Droid Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at Droid Repair Guide.

Unlock Eris from Verizon so that I can use it with Straight Talk Unlimited

You cannot do this. Straight Talk only allows phones with specific MEIDs on their network. You could use your Eris with PagePlus, another prepaid provider that uses the Verizon network. They have a 1200 minute/2000 text/100MB plan for $29.95/month.

How to unlock my htc droid encredible for use with any carrier

Well, first of all, there’s the whole “stick it to the man” appeal of freeing your handset from being locked to a single GSM carrier (AT&T in the US). Secondly, you can use an unlocked iPhone 4 darn near anywhere in the world by popping in a local carrier’s SIM card and booting up the handset. That’s the kind of freedom this country was built upon, but has unfortunately been reeled in by the likes of Apple and AT&T. Even if you’re not a globe-trotter, it’s just nice to know that you have to option to unlock the iPhour and use it in any way you see fit.Now, before you can unlock your iPhone 4, you’ll have to jailbreak the device. To do that, simply go to on your phone, as we describe here.
Then, you’ll fire up Cydia (it’s automatically installed by and search for “ultrasn0w” – keep in mind that ultrasn0w is spelled with the number zero. Install the ultrasn0w app and let it do it’s thing. In less than two shakes of a Jobs’ tail, you will have a carrier unlocked iPhone 4 that’s free to connect to any GSM wireless network in the world. Have fun!
Now, before you go to jailbreak your little Apple phone, keep in mind that anytime you muck around with low-level code, you run the risk of turning your expensive glass-and-steel handset into an expensive glass-and-steel brick. We’ll take no responsibility for any mishaps, no matter how much you whine about it. That said, good luck. Happy jailbreak and unlock day!

How to insert sim in htc droid eris

droid eris does not have a sim holder as it is exclusively locked to verizon and because verizon is not a GSM provider, you cant use droid eris with sim.
