Cell phones for dummies

Jump to last reply

I give up. I have tried a zillion places, but it's all Greek to me. Can anyone bear with a poor ludite and answer a few stupid questions?

I understand that I need an unlocked phone. So how do I tell if my phone is locked please? Since it's ATT I presume it is. Do I ask them to unlock it, or does that raise a red flag? Do these online websites or people on Craigslist that claim to unlock your phone actually work? Can I get in contractual trouble with ATT for unlocking it?

When I buy a Sim card does that activate everything in my Iphone? Including data? Has anyone used data in Morocco? What if I don't want to use the data plan, but just wifi? Can I buy a sim card for that? (The only reason I'm thinking of bringing it is for the GPS.)

I'm also going to be in France and Italy. Is there a sim card that will work for all of these? Or am I better off buying separately in each country? (Only a few days in the other countries so I'm not sure it's worth it...)

I'm landing in Nice so I will not have the resources of CDG at hand. Then, in Morocco, I land in Fes, and quite late at night..

Lastly, and with great shame, I admit that I'm leaving in 11 days, so don't have the two weeks to send for a card.

Sorry to be such a dummy. Greatly appreciate all replies! (nice ones! ;-) )
