Why you need an 'unlocked' GSM
- An 'unlocked' cell phone means that it will allow
any SIM card from any service provider to be used to make calls. You
simply change out one SIM card for another.
On the other hand, if you own a 'locked' phone, it is dedicated and programmed to only route your calls through
the service provider (carrier) you signed up with when you got the cell phone originally.
For example, if you're located inside the U.S., you may have a cell phone with AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile
or some other carrier -and it's probably a locked phone. This translates into you having to pay the corresponding
roaming fees and per minute rates associated with your locked
in carrier. You may even need to
pay a special monthly fee to them to be able to use their network while traveling overseas.
- Get a choice of SIM card rates and calling features
First you'll need an 'unlocked' cell phone. Another benefit of having an 'unlocked' GSM mobile phone, aside from
being able to use the Mobile SIM offered here, is that if you decide that you prefer one SIM card over another,
you'll have the freedom to use any you wish. To change rates and features (and your phone number), simply change
your SIM card.
- How do I know if my current cell phone is locked or unlocked?
- Read your cell phone owners manual, or contact your existing service provider's customer service department
and ask them.
Another alternative; ask a friend who has an account with a different mobile service provider to permit you to
try his/her SIM card in your phone. If your cell phone accepts your friends SIM card and your phone assumes it
is the phone with your friends cell phone number, then your phone is unlocked.
Or, if it creates some sort of error message and doesn't work, then your phone is locked.
When you've finished your test, simply remove your friends SIM card and replace it back in his/her cell phone and
put your SIM card back in your cell phone.
- Can you send and receive SMS messages?
Yes, please view the specifications
for the country where you will be using the service from to see 'sending' rates. All that's necessary is to enter
the recipient's phone number in the following format 00 + Country code + City Code + Phone number. Send SMS according
to your phone's manual.
Incoming SMS messages are a free feature with any of the packages.
