    Borrow an AT&T sim card and put it in your phone. That will tell you. However, it also needs to be a Quad band phone that has the correct frequencies.

    Is it a phone for purchase or is it one you already have?

    Phones listed for sale usually will say if they are unlocked or not. If it is a phone you have you have to get a non-nextel SIM card and pop it in to see if it will work. Unless someone else knows a better way.

    I bought a cheap T-Mobil starter SIM card for $7.00 tp make sure my old cell phone was unlocked, it came with 10 minutes air time.

    Nope, I did not buy it. It is my husband's old phone. I figured I'd go that route before buying one. I actually have a few people checking for their old phones too.

    Most everyone I know has Verizon (no SIM cards). I just checked Amazon.com and found a "Mobal GSM World SIM Card" for $10. I'll look around for a cheaper one. Thank you all, this is great info!!!!! </SPAN>
