No, you cannot. T-Mobile SIM cards only with T-Mobile phones. The same goes for an AT&T or Nextel SIM card, they only work for AT&T or Nextel phones, respectively.

Can you take the sim card out of your existing cingular go phone and put it in another cell phone and have it work?

Yes: As long as you have another Cingular cellular phone, that uses the GSM technology, there is no problem* (the Apple iPhone is an exception to the rule).Your SIM card is your "phone", the single object that provides celluar service service to you. The physical phone is simply a device. Without the SIM card, it's useless.Cingular, now the New AT&T, uses the most common network in the world, called GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), which is used in approximately 70% of the world. Therefore, essentially, you can put a Cingular SIM card into any GSM phone.** There are some stipulations that can alter this answer.

Can you take your tmobile sim card and put it in a prepaid tmobile phone and it work on your plan?

Yes. if it is a tmobile sim card and a tmobile phone then this will definitely work. you will also be able to carry on with the same price plan and number you used before. If you currently have a Tmobile phone on a contract plan that is complete you can also just change your plan to a pre paid plan and keep on using the phone that you have. UPDATE: As of April 2012, TMobile prepaid phones may only connect to T Mobile towers, limiting your signal (since they also use ATT towers) and giving you varied signal strength depending on your location. So, it's best to unlock any prepaid phone. Ask T Mobile to send you the unlock code or pay someone to unlock your phone.

What if your daughter lost her tmobile phone Can you buy a new sim card and put it in an old tmobile phone but still keep her number for the lost phone?

You can do this as long as the old phone works with the tMobile network (or is unlocked to work on both AT&T and tMobile). But you need to call tMobile to have them active the new SIM chip. Basically, they need to connect your daughter as a customer to the new SIM. You should be able to take your old phone into any tMobile store and they should do this for you. Cannot say if they will charge you a small activation fee but it should not require another 2 year contract. They may try to push a new phone on you for free or small price so they can lock you into a new 2 year plan.

Can you take the sim card out of your cingular phone and use it in a nextel phone?

No you cannot, but you can use it in an UNLOCKED T-Mobile phone. Cingular and T-Mobile work off the same network which is GSM and this allows you to switch phones. I have T-mobile but the phone I am using right now is an unlocked cingulart phone. Nextel/Sprint and Verizon work off of the CDMA network and this is why you cannot use it.

How do you transfer phone numbers from a Verizon cell phone sim card to a Cingular phone sim card?

AnswerVerizon phones do not have SIM cards.First off, Verizon Wireless Global Phones do have sim cards. Anyways, take the two phones to any decent size cell phone location and they should have a machine that transfers contacts and pictures (i.e. CelleBrite machine). There is usually a minimal charge of like $10 if you did not buy the new phone from that location.

The GPS tracker is in the phone, not the card. But when you use that sim card in another phone the identity of the sim card will give away the location of the new phone - which then can be tracked by its GPS.

No it will not reset the phone. However, should you take the SIM card with it still in the phone you will not be able to access any of your photos, music or apps that are saved to the SIM card.
