Question by JMan: What cell phones can I use with the old AT&T Wireless network?
I have a great AT&T Charter GSM plan ($ 99 unlimited calls, free long distance, free roaming) which I don’t want to lose but I don’t like my phone. I’m currently using a Siemens S46 and have bought replacement phones over the years but would like to switch. What other phones can I use that would be compatible with the old, pre-Cingular- AT&T Wireless GSM network? Can I just buy a new phone, and if so for which network? I see people posting questions about “unlocking” phones – is that necessary if I buy a new phone and if so how do I go about doing that? Are there any licensing issues with AT&T using one of these phones? Thanks in advance for your help.

A Cingular phone should work since Cingular and AT&T are the same network.
