Unlocked are similar to sim free cell phones in that they come with no Sim card, and so you can choose your network provider by putting in whatever card you like. This site explains the difference between “Unlocked”, “Sim Free” and “Unblocked” phones.

  1. Basically, an unlocked cell phone recognizes a SIM card from any carrier. The Just5 cell phone is one good example of an unlocked cell phone. When you buy this phone, you can still keep your existing AT&T or T-Mobile calling plan by simply putting your sim card in it.
