Rich is right about the SIM based phones...but, there is one problem. I know that with Nextel phones, they have started to track phones by serial number. What that means is that if that unit has been put in the negative file due to non payment, then the SIM and serial number go into the negative file. So, when you purchase that unit and have it activated, they ask you for the serial number. If that serial number is in the negative file, they will not activate it.
