    Ask the guy you are buying it from if it's unlocked.

    I think there is a thread on here about unlocking the 8830 - but I'm not sure if its for use w any carrier in the us or to use any gsm carrier outside the country.

    Don't buy the phone. It won't work on Cingular.

    While it can support a SIM chips, it won't support US GSM cellular frequencies, only Europe or abroad.
