I want to buy a Prepaid Go phone (Nokia 2330) but I want to use AT&T Sim card in my unlock Nokia Xpress Music 5800.
I am wondering if At&T Sim Card will work in my Nokia 5800 phone ? OR Do I have to register the IMEI to At&T first before using it ?
Any idea ?

You don't need to register the 5800 with at&t in order to use it with one of their SIM cards, but unless you are just wanting the 2330 to use as a back up phone, I would recommend just visiting your local corporate at&t store to make arrangements for prepaid service. You can obtain a prepaid SIM/set up your account and just tell them you already have a phone to use with the service. (You may need to fund the prepaid account with $25 while you are in the store to prevent a charge for the SIM card.)
If you purchase a prepaid phone/SIM package, typically the at&t prepaid phone and SIM are now "locked" to one another for a period of six months, and you would have to go through the hassle of trying to get at&t to unlock the SIM for you so you can use it in the 5800 too.
There must be a happy medium somewhere between being totally informed and blissfully unaware.
