I have read (maybe on here but can't remember) that if you are stuck with a cell phone that is a piece of crap, you can buy one of the Cingular go-phones (pre-paid) and use those with your existing SIM card.

Can anyone verify this? Thanks

I can't verify it but generally most cell phone network providers lock the phones they sell to their network. Basically this means unless you have a SIM card from that network provider it won't work in their phone.
Most phones can be unlocked though, then you can use them with any SIM card.

Thanks Kevin, I am asking for my wife who already has a regular Cingluar phone but the contract is not up yet and she would like something different w/o having to upgrade and sign another contract when hers is expired.

Your best bet would be to find somebody that has one and try her SIM card in it. Or maybe find a store that has a demo phone you can turn on and try it with her SIM card?

There was a post here just a few week ago from a guy that said he had done this. Maybe a search will turn it up.
