    I plan on swtching wireless carries but I need to find out if I need to purchase a new phone.

    I have a Samsung Cell Phone that has AT & T logo on the outside. Can this phone be
    used on a T-Moble wireless cell sevice or will I need to get a new phone if I switch to T-moble
    wireless service.

    Thank you,

    If it's got an AT&T logo then it's *probably* locked to AT&T. Not certainly, but my experience has been that unlocked phones aren't branded with a carrier. (At least those that are purchased as unlocked. I understand that there are authorized unlocking procedures for some phones, but there aren't for all phones so your best bet would be to check with both AT&T and your new carrier about your specific phone.)

    What Samsung is it? If it is locked then it can be unlocked.
