    Hi samsoniteman,

    We're going to need more info than what you've given us. The phone model and carrier you want to activate with would be a good start.

    It depends on the phone and the carrier.

    Who is your carrier?

    If you have a CDMA carrier, you cannot use a phone that is not branded to your carrier. So, in other words, if you have Sprint, you cannot use a Verizon phone (and vice versa).

    If you have a GSM carrier, you can use any phone that is GSM as long as it is unlocked. However, depending on the phone/carrier, you might not be able to get 3G. For instance, if you have AT&T as your carrier, T-Mobile branded phones will only get EDGE on AT&T, since AT&T and T-Mobile use different 3G frequency bands.
