    What do you do with an unlocked cell phone?

    Well I know that it is a phone that is not bound to one particular service provider, but what do you do to get service on it? How do i go about getting some sort of wireless provider to use the phone with? Can someone just explain to my how these phones work?

    Yes You are absolutely correct . If a phones is said to be an unlocked, it can be compatible with any other GSM carriers internationally .

    How do i go about getting some sort of wireless provider to use the phone with?
    Unlocked phone works with all GSM carriers world-wide .But, it doesn't works with CDMA carriers .

    Can someone just explain to my how these phones work?

    A phone which can be compatible with all other GSM sim cards are said to be an unlocked phone .

    Unlocked phone :
    If your phone is unlocked, you can insert another network sim card with it and use it without any interruption . For example : If your phone is tied with AT&T, you cant use T-mobile with it . Whether your phone gets unlocked from AT&T or from any of the online vendors like ClassicUnlocking.com , your phone works with T-mobile and other GSM sim cards ....
