I don't know.  My candy bar phone, which is not a flip phone but in terms of performance and abilities is equivalent, uses T Mobile.  But it is capable of working on the AT&T network.  But T Mobile only allows it to make emergency calls on that network if necessary.  I very much like this phone and if I were going to switch networks, I would inquire if it is compatible and can be switched.  I know it can't work with Verizon because that is an incompatible network.  But I wouldn't assume that it couldn't  be switched to AT&T.

I believe all flip phones are tied to one specific carrier and not portable to other services.

My carrier is Verizon and I did put my hands on both the Kyocera  and the SE.  I do not know if it can be unlocked or if it is carried by other companies.

Ann,

 

In considering replacement phones, if I had gone with another flip, I was considering the following, which I will let you have the pleasure of investigating, if you so desire.  In handling  this phone, it seemed very sturdy and had buttons, very nice, noticeable buttons.  :)

 

The DuraXV+ by Kyocera is a tough, dependable basic phone. Designed to meet military standards for durability, this rugged flip phone can handle water, dust, drops, extreme temps and generally harsh environments. You can easily view the screen in sunlight, use the keypad with gloves on and with Smart Sonic Receiver, you can hear calls clearly when things around you get noisy.

 

Regards,

Nancy
