    If you have a cell phone, and you buy another cell phone from Best Buy or a place like that, would you be able to use your new phone if you just put in your SIM and memory card into the new phone?

    Not sure but just don't drop it in the toilet bowl like that other dude.

    Mimi454,  I think the best thing is, to ask in phone shop, as I live in Ireland, and rules might be different. Dont want to spoil your trip. No need to be sorry, I like to help, when I can, but some times more than others.

    That's a good idea, and thanks

    You would still have to pay the same, nothing in life is free. Sorry.

    I mean to activate the new phone (sorry about all of this, I just want to make sure before I get one before I leave for my trip, so thank you for your patience)

    I cant see any reason why you could not use them in new phone.So, yes you can.

    Like, would you be able to call and everything without having to call your phone company and/or paying money?

    Are you sure your phone has a sim card (many don't)? If so, the answer is yes. See:
