    Default Sprint Tour 9630 Sim

    I have sprint. I want to take the tour's sim out and put it in a bold 9700 that was originally from at&t. is this possible? Please tell me only if you are 100% positive. I dont see why it cant work.

    If it's possible, please tell me how to do it. (If i need to unlock anything)

    No. It cannot be done. The SIM card in the Tour is for international roaming. You can use your Tour on Sprint's network even with no SIM card at all, since Sprint is CDMA and does not use SIM cards.

    The 9700 is a GSM device, so it will not work on any CDMA carrier's network. It could be unlocked and used on T-Mobile (with only 2G due to different frequency for 3G), but it cannot be used on Sprint, VZW, or any other CDMA carrier.

    No. No. No. Can't be done. No. Absolutely not. No way. Can't happen.
