    Hey,

    I was wondering if there was anything a buyer could use my old 64K Boost SIM for..........if so i think i'll sell it............out of curiosity........can SIMs from different companies be used on another company.........can someone use my Boost SIM as a Cingular or T-Mobile SIM.............cuz i think Boost's policy is that they will not reactivate terminated SIMs onto a new account..........the account associated with that SIM has been closed and the number has been officially disconnected............but even still.........Boost doesnt activate expired SIMs on new accounts.........so can Cingular customers use this SIM or T-Mobile???

    Probably not. I'm sure there is something every SIM card carrier does to protect their SIMs from such a thing, but then again, you can buy SIMs online, so who knows. Try e-Bay to see if people are hawking SIMs, this might give you a good direction to go.

    No, the carriers lock their sim cards to protect the data that is on them. Even if that wasnt the case, you wouldnt be able to switch from Boost Mobile to Cingular, the technologies are different, and the sim cards are made to support the carriers technology.
