    Nope, he's on a different network, and his sim is tied to his phone.

    HOWEVER, if your Storm is UNLOCKED, you can use any sim in it. Storms aren't unlocked by default.

    are you sure?? like i thought sims were the identifiers not the phone?

    Yes the Sim is the identifier, but it's on your buddy's network/phone!

    The ONLY way you can use a different network's SIM card is if your phone is unlocked.

    Go ahead and try it. I can just about guarantee that it won't work. He'd have to add your phone to his plan for it to work "out of the box".

    basically the part that was left out is that VZW/CDMA carriers don't use SIM cards to store programming. its in the device memory. the SIM card is for GSM networks...and the storm is capable of using GSM network while roaming int'l...the "unlock" can override that, and allow domestic use of GSM carrier's SIM cards for service.
