    my GF's old sony phone is dying. she doesn't want any fancy phone, very basic, no camera or anything.

    our carrier is cingular, can i just buy her a pay-as-you go phone from cingular and pop in her gsm card to get it working? or is there some sort of "locked for pay-as-you go only thing".

    i figured i can pick her up a nokia 3120 for $29.99, and was wondering if this would work.

    thanks for all advices

    is that 50 shipped? and also what condition? I'll have to ask since she was very particular on "those old nokias, that work after u drop them in the toilet"

    It worked when I did it with Tmobile. I bought a prepaid and put my sim card in it and it worked fine.
