I'm needing help from .....

I have a cellphone I hate, my friend gave me one she found on the beach. Can I put my sim card from mine in this other one and keep all of my memory and contacts and just go to the phone store and have it activated or what? How does this work??

  • I'm not sure, but if I were you I would take that phone over to the nearest police department by that beach. That person may be looking for it.

  • If it is AT & T, there is a glitch in prepaid phones, your SIM card will work on a pay as you go phone. But ONLY with AT & T . So, if you find an AT & T go phone from Walmart for 14.99, it will work just the same as any other AT & T phone. It's a great glitch!!

  • The found cel is on a plan, it has been turnd off. and I have at&t pay as you go. And I doubt the owner would want to have the police see everything she has on it. My friend said when she found it, every text was talking about weed and getting weed. It belonged to some young girl.

  • Im no thief, people lose cellphones every day, the girl shouldn't have been high and she probably wouldn't have. Besides the place where it was found is 35miles from my home and it;s not my responsibility.. I just asked a frickin question about a cellphone given to me by someone else. Not sure what Im going to do with it anyway, damn who are you Carol Brady? If the cell was lost at a restuarant or something I would return it, this is different. Chill out lady!
