    Default Unlocked Phone?

    If I buy an unlocked phone, will it still work on AT&T? Thanks guys.

    It really depends on what phone. AT&T uses SIM cards. So if the other carrier you use has the same size and shape SIM card, then yes. An iPhone for example would be a little bit different. Since all iPhone's later than the 3G model don't take SIM, it would be a Lil more tricky. You'd have to take the phone to your carrier, then they would transfer all your contacts and shit. Unlocking phones is illegal though. All and any phones. (Before you start an off topic debate, use google)

    They take sims, they are just micro sims. So what you are telling me, is that the phone would work 100% perfect even though its unlocked?

    It's basically a phone without the carrier lock on it.

    You can still get a unlocked phone straight from the manufacturer.

    Josh, what the guy posted earlier is wrong. But unlocking your phone is only illegal without your carrier's permission. If your buying a Unlocked phone online make sure the seller is trusted and will accept re-funds. Some of the time people will say the phone is unlocked to up the value. When a phone is unlocked it means either the phone was made specifically made without a carrier, or the phone was white-listed by its carrier. When a phone is unlocked you can use it with any carrier as long as the phone as a sim card slot and the carrier your switching to has a sim card. But if your buying a unlocked phone that was locked on Sprint or Verizon then you can only use it outside of the U.S. Also what happened to me was i went to get service through Sprint and I already had an unlocked phone but they will make you take a 2-year contract.

    For example, I had a Blackberry 9580. This is the Blackberry Curve. I unlocked it myself by finding the MEP and MEP2 codes. I had (just switched to Verizon) Cincinnati Bell. Cincinnati Bell has the exact same SIM card size and shape as AT&T SIM. I was able to plug my friends AT&T SIM card in and make the phone still run perfectly fine. What kind of phone are you trying to unlock if I might ask?
