    Your T-mobile supplied Nokia 6101 phone is unlocked, if it will operate with a non-T-mobile SIM in it. Just borrow a Cingular SIM from an aquaintance for a few minutes. If it fails this test, you can ask T-Mobile's customer service for the "subsidy unlock code" after you've been with them for three months.

    You have been roaming on Cingular. In areas where both T-Mobile and Cingular have networks, you don't need roaming, and it's not possible. You may be able to roam on Cingular where there is no T-Mobile network, and there is a roaming agreement in force between T-Mobile and Cingular.

    If you see "Emergency Only" on your phone's display, you've found a GSM network that doesn't have a roaming agreement with T-Mobile. You will be only able to call 911.

    You can roam only where your phone has permission to roam. There must be a roaming agreement in place. If you are in an area with poor service poor service is not enough or a reason to be able to roam if your home carrier services the area.
