Was wonding if anyone could help me out. My girlfriends phone died and to replace it with even the cheapest phone she has is redicously expensive. Anyone have any old cell phones that just need a sim card to work that they would be willing to let go of for free or a minimal price?

Cingular, but I don't think it matters....I'd be willing to try at least.

It does matter, AFAIK a SIM will only work on phones set-up for their networks. When my cingular phone got smashed, the card wouldn't work in my friends Nextel.

That's what I was thinking, I was going to try it next, figured I'd try DeVal first.

It depends on the service. If it's an "unlocked" phone, any SIM will work.

The Nextel phone wouldn't work because it's an iDen network vs. the GSM network that Cingular uses. If it's an unlocked phone, it could be a Cingular or T-Mobile phone. Sprint and Verizon won't work because they run a CDMA network.
