"The SIM card is a tiny, rectangular card found in all GSM cell phones (think T-Mobile and Cingular) that acts as an ID card for your handset. Usually located behind the battery, a SIM card stores your phone number and is needed to activate a mobile for use. If the card is taken out of the handset, it stops working, and it is no longer associated with your phone number.

Usually located behind the battery, a SIM card stores your phone number and is needed to activate a mobile for use. If the card is taken out of the handset, it stops working, and it is no longer associated with your phone number. The advantage of a SIM card is multifold (sorry, Verizon and Sprint folks). Most importantly, you can switch your phone number from one mobile to another simply by swapping out your SIM card. As long as both phones are for the same carrier, the switch is fast and painless. And on a related note, if your handset is unlocked (meaning it’s not locked to one carrier only) you can buy prepaid SIM cards when traveling so that your mobile will always have a local number for your destination. And finally, SIM cards can store up to 250 contacts, which makes for easy transfers of your phone book."

CDMA Mobile Handsets of Reliance and Tata Indicom accept only their SIM cards and not others. GSM SIM cards cannot be used in CDMA handsets but CDMA as well as GSM SIM cards can both be used in certain dual SIM handsets. In general, GSM SIM cards can be used in maximum no. of handsets

No all mobiles dont accept all types of SIM cards. It depends on your phone. If you are using a CDMA set then CDMA sim card will be accepted by it. If you have a GSM supporting mobile phone then you can use any GSM service provider sim.

no its depend on mobile means if mobile supports CDMA services then only CDMA service provider sim will accepted by that phone is mobile suupports GSM service then sim from GSM service provider will accept by this phone..there is lots of difference between these two services.

Identity of Sprint phones is based on an electronic serial number and the association of this with a subscriber ID inside a database. Nextel phones use SIM cards, but then Sprint bought them and now Nextel is just a fading brand name.

There are two kinds of Boost Mobile phones. The walkie talkie (iden) type which has a sim card and the non walkie talkie cdma type (Motorola c290, W385, Krzr K1M) which does not have a sim. Iden and Cdma Boost mobile phones run on two different incompatibile networks and you cannot use one to run on the other's network, in other words, no Krzr K1M on the iden/walkie talkie side and vice versa. The Boost iden sims can be used with other non Boost iden phones. If you put a Boost sim in a Nextel Motorola it will usually work with some variations (No Off Networkwalkie talkie, texting might be different). Nextel sims will not work in Boost phones without unlocking. Boost sims also work in Southern Linc (in the South)and Telus Mike (Canada) Motorola iden phones as long as they are unlocked . Boost (or for that matter any iden ) sims will NOT work in unlocked gsm phones . Gsm is the different sim technology used by companies like Att and Tmobile. The sims from both iden and gsm look the same and can fit in each other's phones but are incompatible and willnot work. So , no iphone or G1 for Boost. Source(s): Have owned and messed with many types of iden, gsm and cdma phones. Iwish they were all compatible but they aren't.

Mobile Phones works under two technologies. GSM and CDMA. GSM-Global system for mobile communication. This type of phones works with all type of simcards. CDMA-Code Division Multiple Access. This type of phone is built by the network provider itself which is meant to be operated with their own network only and doesn't accept simcards.
