You’ve got 2 iPhones, why would you want a Nokia?

  1. Yes you can use your Nokia N97 in Thailand. Just make sure your phone is “unlocked” as you suggested. Buy a sim card (comes with some prepaid credit) and a prepaid top-up card (maximum is 300 baht) which are available everywhere such as 7 Eleven stores. Most popular brand is AIS and another brand (I forgot the name) which both are good for local calls. Check out the cost of phone call rates before you buy a sim card if you want it for international calls.
    Just give the sim card time to “kick in” and follow the instructions which are in English too. You wont have any problems with a AIS Prepaid Sim Card and Top Up Card.

  2. technically yes…..legally no….a foreigner theoretically is not allowed a phone in Thailand…..how weird is that?

  3. as long as the Nokia N97 is unlock then you might have to buy a Thai simcard… it very cheap, you can just buy it from 7eleven…
