Re: Question.

you would still have to unlock it.  at this time att has purchased but the sale is not final yet.  i dont think.  anyway, whether it is or it isnt, you would still have to unlock the phone.  it was originally a t mobile phone so it doesnt matter whether att took tmobile or not it wasnt made to work on the att network.

Correct. An AT&T SIM card will not work in a T-Mobile phone without unlocking the phone first. Although AT&T and T-Mobile are alike in quite a few ways, they both have their differences in SIM card technology and such.
