The answer is yes! You can bring a used cell phone to a plan quite easily. If it's a GSM phone like T-Mobile or Cingular you simply pop in an appropriate Chip (SIM Card) and assuming the phone is not LOCKED to another network - you will have no problem. If it's CDMA you will need to register the new phone with the network and ask them for a phone number for it.

AnswerBe careful doing this though...whether the company provides the phone or not, it WILL add a contract when the new number is created. AnswerIt is not recommended but can be done. If you want to add an additional line, the best thing to do is get a new phone. It is your only opportunity get get a free phone when your 2 year contract starts. If you don't take advantage of this, you will be out of luck. Also, you can get a nice phone free on any cell phone plan, especially an unlimited cell phone plan.

After extensive research regarding the benefits of Sprint cell phone plans over other phone companies has shown that they are the only company that offers truly unlimited data. Other companies have a cap on the amount of data that can be used on a plan before additional charges will be added.

Yes you can. This phone type can be used by various cell phone providers. A few are At&t, verizon, and sprint. You may find them under any of the three cell phone website.

What might be considered the best cell phone plan totally depends upon what the usage of the phone will be. Someone who texts a lot will want a different plan from someone who calls a lot or uses the internet a lot. It is best to work out what the phone will be used for and then find the best permutation.

The cell phone known as the LG enV touch can only be used with the Verizon Wireless cell phone service. Verizon is the only service that can be used with the LG enV touch because Verizon bought the phone from LG and LG signed a contract with Verizon stating that this phone will not be used on any other services.

Walmart has a cell phone plan. I have used AT&T for as long as I've had a phone and had no complaints. First thing you want to do is see which company has good service in your area and then make sure to get a family plan that allows you to call and/or text each other for free.

Cell phone reviews are positive and/or negative comments that users make regarding particular cell phones they have used. These reviews are very valuable in researching cell phone and plan purchases as cell phone companies have become more competitive and tricky.

Cheap prepaid phone plans can be bought at nearly every electronic or cell phone store. Prepaid cell phone plans allow you to buy a certain amount of minutes within a month for a low price. Some cheap prepaid cell phone plans can be bought at a fraction of what it cost for a contract plan. Many cell phone providers allow you to keep your current number when starting a plan and provide great deals on cell phone that can be used for prepaid plans.

New cell phone, no committments: Vonage. Used cell phone, no committments: ebay Also Tracphone is a good option, you prepay with your credit card and use it up - I think you buy phone cards to insert? or enter on the phone? Something like that.

The SIM card identifies the phone to the cell tower and is used to associate the phone and your account. It is not used to control WiFi functionality.

No; the networks used by Cingular (now AT&T) and Verizon Wireless are incompatible.

Texting does not use any minutes from your cell phone plan. Texting is a totally separate activity from talking on your cell phone. TALKING/LISTENING on your cell phone is the only way you use anytime minutes.
