    Can I purchase a G-1 from someone else, put in my SIM card from AT&T and then use the G-1 on AT&T?

    My contract is up, and I can switch carriers, but T-Mobile doesn't have a store in Omaha, and their coverage is supposedly pretty rotten here.

    I would much rather have a G-1 (and if you're looking to sell one, you can contact me via PM) but I may just end up buying an iPhone.

    You can use the G1 on AT&T. You will need a data plan on AT&T but you will not get G3 speed, only Edge.

    Thanks for the response. I found someone locally who wants to sell me their G-1 (precisely because we don't have decent T-Mobile coverage in Nebraska) but I'm still a little unsure about the process to get it working on AT&T. When my wife's phone died, she just bought a use phone on EBay, swapped the SIM card, and it just worked.

    A Google search however about the G-1 and AT&T pointed me to someone saying I would need to purchase an unlock code from a website. Is this the case?

    Yes. You will need to purchase an unlock code unless the person who you buy it from has previously unlocked it.
