Asked in Sim Cards
Is it possible for two SIM cards to share the same telephone number?
Some companies do offer this service. Answer yup, if u ask for a replacement card as well when u purchase Answer No, actually. Sim cards were created for SECURITY. Remember back when people were "cloning" (duplicating IMEI signatures to make calls on other peoples phones)? Can't do that now. If a replacement SIM is activated, the old sim is automatically DEactivated. No two cards can be simultaneously active with the same number. Furthermore, once deactivated, it can't be re-activated. At least not without some inevitable device is created for "wiping" or "resetting" a SIM.
Can sim cards be transferred to an iPhone from a non-iPhone?
The original 2G iphone was IMSI locked therefore you could only use one sim with the phone. Newer Iphones 3G and 3GS are usually just carrier locked so you can swap around SIMs including MVNO SIMs that operate thru the same provider. All Iphones from Belgium/Italy or New Zealand are completely unlocked. Some carriers will unlock your IMEI so that when you update the phone on ITunes the phone will be unlocked expect to incur a charge or to be out of contract to get this! Answer No. A SIM activated in a non-iPhone will not work in an iPhone. The iPhone must be used with the built-in SIM card that was activated in it initially (or the activated SIM from an identical model iPhone), although that SIM can be moved to another SIM-based phone if necessary.

How do you change SIM cards?
Usually you open up the back of your phone and your sim card is being held in a holder, sometimes you may have to remove the battery if it's in the way. You take that sim card out and put in your new one. Sometimes phones take a minute or two to load with the new sim card. If you do that, it should load the sim cards information and regular phone number, unless it is a sim card from a different service provider, which in that case it may not work and show errors. Answer If your phone has one, turn off the power, remove the battery and typically the sim card is behind the battery. Often a clip or slide holds the sim card in place so you may need to examine it to figure out how to remove the sim card. YOU TAKE IT OUT AND PUT A DIFFERENT ONE IN!
Asked in Mobile Phones, eBay, Sim Cards
Can you buy a Motorola V180 phone off eBay and switch SIM cards or do you have to go through your provider to get everything changed?
The answer is Yes and No, as stupid as it sounds. Each phone is built for a specific SIM Card. Some phones are multi-Sim meaning they use any Sim Card. If the Motorola your'e buying was a previous Contract Phone, make sure the company it was used was the same Sim Card manufacturer as yours. If you buy the phone and it doesn't accept your Sim Card, go to a local mobile phone shop, or supplier and seek assistance, this usually comes for a small charge.
