Default Are Tmobile phones locked?

Can I stick prepaid sim card in there or all phones locked? Can they be
"unlocked" if they're in fact locked? TIA

They are locked. T-Mobile will unlock it if you have an active post-paid (I
assume prepaid doesn't qualify) account. If not, you have to pay someone to
give you the unlock code, like a web page or local shop that offers
unlocking service.

T-Mobile USA is very good about unlocking phones. If you have been a
customer for a couple of months or so, send an email to

Provide your name, account number, mobile number, and the IMEI of the
phone. I told them I wanted to use local SIMS in Europe, but that may
not be necessary. The phone has to be a dual or tri-band to use
outside of US and Canada.

Read and follow the directions very carefully when they respond.

I've unlocked more than a couple 3390's (which are single band GSM1900) with
no problem. I've unlocked my S105 (tri-band) and R225m (dual-band) with no
problem too. All I do is say "I would like to unlock my _____" and I
provide my information. I've done it that way ever since I signed up with
T-Mobile and they always give me the unlock code.

If there so good as to unlock them why do they bother to lock them in the
first place?

I have a
locked Nokia 3390 if I go to the trouble of having it unlocked, what other
carriers would I be able to choose.


Right now the GSM national carriers here in the states are T-Mobile, AT&T WS,
and Cingular. You would be able to use that phone with any of these carriers.

Do I have to change the sim card each
time I want to connect to a different carrier?


The SIM card is what makes the phone a phone on a carriers network. Yes, you
have to change the SIM card, one for each network.
