There are a couple of ways to know whether your phone uses a SIM card. 1. If you know who the service provider is for your phone, and it happens to be either AT&T, or T-Mobiles, then your phone does have a SIM card. 2. You could open the back of your phone and look carefully to see if you see a SIM card. If you do not see a SIM card, then gently remove the battery from it's compartment and look under the battery. If you see a SIM card, then your phone does use a SIM card.

T-Mobile is a unique company because all of the phones that are available for their network use SIM cards. A SIM card is similar to the size of memory card for your camera and essentially holds the memory for your phone. The SIM card is transferrable from one phone to another and holds all of your favorites, like phone numbers and email addresses. The great thing about a SIM card is that it can be taken out of one phone and will immediately load your information into another. Most cell phone companies do not offer this special option.

A phones sim card is a small card that holds information such as contact, programs and games that have been imputed into a phone. The sim card is not what connects the phone to the internet.

Try swapping the sim card. It works for me :)
