Can you put a Tracfone sim in a Cingular phone?

I have a Tracfone sim and a Cingular phone.

Unfortunately Cingular (ATT) phones come locked which means you can't use another company's sim in their phones. The only way to use a Tracfone sim in the phone would be to get it unlocked which usually costs $30.

Yes, you can but you will have to unlock it first. you can unlock it by a code or get in unlocked by your carrier.

Potentially. Cingular and TracFone both use GSM technology, but your Cingular phone is most likely locked. Put the SIM card in the Cingular phone and if it works, you are good to go. If you get an error message, you will need to have the phone "unlocked". You can find many unlocking providers on the web.

` No, unfortunatley, Trac fone sim cards can only be used in Trac fone phones. They do this for security purposes. Trac fone phones can be picked up for low prices at many electronic stores, and other various retailers. Any questions you have can be answered in a simple phone call to Trac fone representatives.

No you cannot. Tracfone sim cards only work in Tracfone phones. Unlocked phones work with other carrier sim cards but Tracfone sim cards require you to input a code.

And I mean will it work, I know I can put it in the phone, I want to know if I will be able to make calls and text messages.

Unfortunately you can not put the tracfone sim into the other phone. The reason why is because at&t/Cingular have made it where you are only capable of switching sim cards between at&t/Cingular phones only.
