Re: Is any GSM phone compatible w/ TracFone/Net10 simply by changing the SIM card, or is it propriet

The MotoRazr2 V9x is a much nicer phone than any that Net10 offers, & they wouldn't support it even though it is a GSM phone (I couldn't get an answer from them until AFTER I purchased this phone, THANK YOU Net10!). I didn't have much choice. Net10 will only support the phones that they offer for sale through their service, & all of them are out-of-date & obsolete technology. This is something to remember when considering Net10 (a division ...

Re: Unlocked Motorola Motorazr2 V9x - compatible pre-paid carriers?

Thank you for responding. Yes, I live in the U.S.A., on the mid-Atlantic coast. All I read online re: compatible GSM carriers gave me 2 results, AT&T & T-Mobile. I couldn't find any pre-paid plans through AT&T so I chose T-Mobile, although the coverage from my home location appears on the fringe (I'll be using this while on the road, so that's not an issue) & general coverage appears spotty (which IS an issue). Since this is a much nicer phone ...

Unlocked Motorola Motorazr2 V9x - compatible pre-paid carriers?

I just bought an unlocked phone & am ISO any pre-paid plans that would be compatible? I don't like any of the monthly contract plans & the availability of choosing another carrier appeals to me. I would appreciate any informative responses. Thank you.

Is any GSM phone compatible w/ TracFone/Net10 simply by changing the SIM card, or is it proprietary?

:? I read one response to a post here that seemed to indicate that TracFone (incl. Net10?) GSM phones weren't compatible/interchangeable with any GSM phone or service simply by switching the SIM card, contrary to what N1 Wireless (a GSM phone, SIM card & supplier & phone unlocker) indicated. I know full-well that TracFone/Net10 has a really bad rep for customer service (experienced it myself many times) but I still have time w/ them & I want a pre-paid ...

To my knowledge in seeking a replacement Net10 (TracFone) cellphone, whether or not they use a GSM or CDMA type depends on where you'll be predominantly using their service, as they use others' towers. They offer both types (CDMA doesn't use SIM cards, GSM does) but what I gather from one post here, their phones still won't work even if their SIM card is switched from one to another, if you haven't purchased the replacement from them too. Didn't ...

/;| OK, this is News. I'm ISO a replacement phone smashed by a jealous X that I originally purchased thru Net10. Went to a site that sells unlocked GSM phones (N1wireless.com); they never responded to my e-mails asking about the transferability of SIM cards & Net10 phones, but after waiting a couple of weeks for any answer, when I did finally phone them asking about the ability to do that with Net10 (a subsidiary of TracFone, as I understand) ...
