Using TracFone SIM in another phone?

by ronmicha    Apr 13, 2006, 4:06 AM

I just bought a TracFone Motorola V170 online but really wanted to use the SIM in another unlocked phone. Reason I bought the V170 because someone on one forum said it was impossible to use another manufacturer's unlocked SIM in a TracFone. Now tonight I read a message on the Cingular side where a person broke his Cingular, bought a TracFone at WalMart (I think) put it in the TracFone and it worked. There wasn’t any other detailed info like calling customer service, etc. Is there a TracFone expert on here that can tell me what’s the real deal? I’ll probably be happy with the V170 (it’s backordered) but really want to use a Cingular Razr that someone is giving me that doesn’t have a SIM card.
Thanks for any kind of heads-up information I can use.
