Can I move my cell phone service just by moving my SIM to a new phone?

When you move your SIM, you keep the same cell phone service. SIM cards make it easy for you to have multiple phones so you can switch between them whenever you like. These phones have to be either provided by your cell phone provider or they have to be unlocked phones.  With unlocked phones, you can always switch your phone service between different phones as easily as popping out the SIM card and moving it.  You can also use different phone service plans in a single unlocked phone, say one for work and one for personal, by switching the SIMs.  The opposite of an unlocked phone is a locked phone.  In contrast, only SIM cards from a specific cell phone company will work in its locked phones. These phones were locked to protect subsidies, i.e. the amount that your cell phone operator subsidized to have you sign a contract with early termination fees.

Hello, I tried calling you several times today, and I'm not getting through for some reason. If your website does not have many Facebook Likes, why would someone visit your Facebook Fanpage? People Like you when other people like you. The more poeple that FB LIKE your website and fanpage, the credibility you will have with new visitors. It works the same for Twitter, when people visit your website and see you have alot of Twitter Followers, they now want to follow you too. They too now what to know what all the hype is and why all those people are following you. Please visit my site, I could help you out a lot. I have a small office out here in silicon Valley and I'm just trying to make a name for myself. http://social-valley.com/likesmarket.html Sincerely, Cohen Nathan Socal-Valley 1472 Murpy Ave, Ste 213 San Jose, CA 95121
