The sim card is a little chip that goes under your battery that identifies you.. You can have any phone that accepts sim cards (and operates under your area's band (there are 3-4 bands.. North America uses its own)as long as its unlocked between different service providers. For ex. ATT will 'lock' their phones so that only ATT sim cards will work on the phone.
Its just like a cd in a computer.. The program wont run without the cd.. The phone wont work unless you have the sim card. And you can store things such as phone numbers and messages on them as well. Of course, not all phones have simcards.. Centennial doesnt use them i know that. But theyre gay. They have big rocks up their ass.. I hate em!
When i was in Europe a couple years ago, I used disposable sim cards.. I had my own phone already and just bought the cards, and once the time was used up, Id throw them away.. It was neat because to check how much time/money I had used, I would just dial *123 and it would show on the screen. They are so far ahead of us though in the tech and gadget world its not even funny.. And then theres Asia. Theyre playing Xbox on their Plasma screen phones by now probably

I gotta give props for my Samsung i500. No camera, but it's also a PDA in a small package, which is more important to me. I've dropped this thing so many times, and it's fallen off the roof of my car at 35mph (doh!). Still works perfect, like the day I bought it. It's almost 3yrs old now, and aside from scratches & scuffmarks, it's built like a brick shithouse.
I'm with Sprint, which is the only provider who has this phone. It's now $150 with a new contract. If you like the form factor, but don't wanna go with Sprint, Verizon has the i600, which is a PocketPC instead of PalmOS. HTH.
I know how much it costs with a 2-year plan. given that I already have a two-year plan, and recently renewed it, there's no way I'm tacking another two years onto that plan to get the phone for $50 less. notice how I said "retail" price, not price with plan.
