    Putting A sim card in a Rogers phone

    You can easily put the card in but make sure you have a data plan or your bill will go through the roof. When I bought my iPhone , The sim out of my old phone slipped right in. Once again just confirm you have a data plan as the charges through Rogers will be very expensive.

    it will work as long as it is unlocked, just make sure you do not restore or update, otherwise you will have to unlock it again.

    Read the stickies and the guides on these forums for all the info and software you need.

    Just to shorten your research:
    1. If your phone is on firmware 2.2.1 your only option is to buy a piggy-back SIM, or wait a few months
    2. If it's on 2.2.0 or earlier then follow the guides to unlock it with YellowSn0w
