    Go phone sim card?

    Will my at&t go phone sim card work in an unlocked blackberry bold?? My go phone is laying on its death bed and I don't want to get a new number & a contract.

    Yes, it should.  If you purchased your GoPhone within the last year or so, it's possible it's SIM is locked to the phone it was activated with; but if that's the case at&t customer service should unlock it for you so that you can use it with an alternate device.  If not, you can visit a local Corporate at&t store and just ask them for a new SIM that is provisioned with your current account/phone number information.  If you have to go that route you may need to add funds to your account while in the store to keep them from charging you $25 for a replacement SIM.

     

    If you purchased your GoPhone a couple of years ago or more, you shouldn't have any trouble with just moving your SIM to an unlocked phone of your choice - just make certain it has both the 850 and 1900 mhz frequencies that at&t uses.

    That depends on the plan you currently have and if the SIM card will work/fit into the Inspire. 

     

    It should work just fine but without knowing what plan you have now, we can't determine if you'll have to add features.
