Okay, I just bought a Pantech Slate C530 off Ebay. It's an unlocked gsm phone which is compatible for use with Virgin Mobile, T Mobile, Cingular, etc. Virgin Mobile does not have sim cards in the US. However, Virgin Mobile has sim cards in the UK, and I am buying a UK gsm sim card for this phone. I wanted to know if you knew if this gsm sim card will work in the pantech in the US?

The UK sim card might work in your unlocked Pantech phone, if UK Virgin Mobile has a roaming agreement with a US based carrier. The roaming rates would be quite high though. You might find your answer on the Virgin Mobile UK site.

The specs says this is a quad band GSM phone, http://www.phonescoop.com/phon.....php?p=1705 so if it is indeed unlocked, it should work with a UK GSM carriers, and likely most other GSM carriers in the world.
