Yes, any GSM outfit claims it can hook up with anyone else- so what? If they don't have an agreement with the GSM provider in that area than either no hook up occurs or you pay up the hilt.

In the past T-Mobile has been generous about unlocking their cell phones, for their customers. AT&T has never been that user friendly. So you can, technically speaking, put the competitor's sim chip in your phone and it will work. There are two things to be aware of. If the phone is not compatible with a competitors' products they won't bother. (Which is kind of silly as only batteries really tend to be different.) If the sales rep you are talking to is more concerned about a commission than a customer than that person will refuse to work with you.
