Default Nokia 6340i SIM card in Samsung S307? Will it work?

Forgive me if this is a common question, but I have a Nokia 6340i
phone and want to swap to the Samsung S307. Can I just purchase the
S307 off of the internet and pop in my SIM card or is there more to it
than that. This is all very new to me, so forgive the ignorance. Any
background information on this issue or pointers to a good internet
source where I can learn is greatly appreciated.

If the phone is unlocked (make sure that it is), swapping the SIM should
work, in GSM only, of course.

Do you know if you have GSM coverage in your area yet? If they are
offering this phone for sale, in your area Cingular stores, that would tell
me that the answer is yes, to my prior question.

A place to learn a few things, especially using the Glossary on this
site is Phone Scoop, which can be found at:

Have a good one,

GSM coverage is new in my area. They just started testing it this
past weekend and the S307 phone will go on sale August 1st. I was
hoping to learn a bit more about this using the field test mode that I
also asked about before swapping to the new phone. My thinking was
that I could tell if my 6340 was using GSM or TDMA before buying a
phone that may or may not work in this area yet.

Thanks again for all of your help. I'll be sure to check out the
phonescoop site you mentioned as soon as I have a chance.

if your 6340 says something about forwarding calls before dialing out it is
in GSM

Off topic but my Nokia 3595 GSM phone gives the forwarding message every
time it dials out. Why is that message presented?

HI no you can't use your old sim card in your new samsung S307 mobile if it is locked with some other network provider ..To fix this you have to unlock your phone first ...You can easily unlock your samsung s307 mobile from network lock using sites like WickedUnlock.com here they are rendering unlock code for all mobile models at reliable cost ..After unlocking your phone you can freely use it with any GSM sim ...
