sims, locks & Nokia 3100
I have a Nokia 3100 which has a provider and a number based in the UK.
I'm now off to other points in the globe (Argentina, Mexico, Germany, Japan). By the time calls in those countries are either sent or received on this phone, it's costing me a fortune per minute.
Should i be buying a new SIM for my phone as i arrive in each country?
Does that mean i get a new (local) phone number with each new SIM?
Am I buying a prepaid sim? or arranging for new billing each time??
And what does having "locked" or "unlocked" phone mean and how would I know if mine is locked or unlocked?
Thanks in advance,
The easiest way to see if your Nokia 3100 is unlocked is to take a mate's SIM who's wireless carrier is different from yours and place it in your 3100. If you can make/receive phone calls on it after this, the Nokia 3100's more than likely unlocked.
In the event your Nokia 3100 is locked, here's a website I've used to unlock various Nokia handsets.
