Whitluvj, yes you can use any sim on any network when you have an unlocked phone. locked phones restrict you to a particular network, while unlocked phones gives you access to all available networks.

kn0we11, take your phone to a service center and they will unlock it for you

Is the phone carrier branded or unlocked? Is this phone 3G compatable?
If you've purchased your phone through a carrier, you need to contact them and have them send OTA settings to your phone to make it work.
If you've got an unlocked phone, it may not be 3G compatable but the internet may still be accessed by entering in your internet settings manually.
Carrier internet settings may be found here:

Wont connect to internet says failed it was a vodafone lgku990i i need it to go on tesco internet


As far as I can tell, Your phone is from vodafone and you are trying to connect it to a different carrier's internet. If this phone is unlocked, you need to input the correct WAP/Mobile internet settings for your current carrier.
If this phone is not unlocked and cannot access the internet of your current carrier, Phone your provider and ask them to push OTA settings to your phone.

Hi friend,
I am afraid that if you want to use the cellular phones you should get it unlocked in the UK.
A locked phone will only recognize a SIM card from aparticular carrier. When you use a locked phone with a SIM from other carriers,you may not call or receive a call, may not receive or send msgs.
So I think you can try an unlocked cellular phone, you can visit our website to get an unlocked cell phones,we are the professional seller for Drop shipping unlocked China cell phone.
Good luck!

I have a LG scoop from alltel and i want to put my number on a verizon LG model VX8550A, how do i do that?


if youre trying to program your alltel phone number on a verizon phone yet keep your alltel service its not going to work. the phones are locked to the carriers and cannot be unlocked. depending on where your cellphone number is based out of your serivce will most likely turn into verizon anyway. but as far as i know right now you cannot use the verizon phones.
i could be wrong, i live in an area that is going to become AT&T not verizon.
