Seeking Advice - Buying a Prepaid SIM card

Got a Samsung phone from a FOAFOAF that was apparently used in Asia - the numerical dial tones can be spoken in Mandarin Chinese and there's what looks like a Mandarin Chinese text editor built inside.

    • You can get a Blackberry Torch from AT&T, on regular the Torch 9800 will have the Network locked to AT&T. In other words, the Blackberry 9800 Torch from AT&T can be used with their sim cards but if you will use other SIM card on that device it will not get signal - because it s locked to AT&T. Some people want to use the Blackberry Torch 9800 with other GSM carriers such as T-Mobile. Vodafone, Orange, Virgin. O2 and many others To …
