    Will a "dumb" phone sim card work on a locked Palm Pixi Plus?

    Okay, what I meant is whether or not a sim card that came from a "dumb" phone like LG Shine 2 will work on a smartphone. See my dad has an LG shine right that he hates due to too much scratches on screen. So he bought a used locked smartphone called Palm Pixi Plus by At&t that has wifi from eBay. He has no data plan or text messaging plan on the Shine so it's all simply a phone for voice calling. He plans on transferring the Shine's sim card to the Pixi. Will the network recognize this? Will At&T be able to detect that a "dumb" phone user is using a smartphone now? What happens if he accidentally goes to the internet (browser, facebook, youtube...) w/o connecting to wifi first (as in 3G is used instead)? Will wifi be free by the way? Can he turn off the 3G so that he doesn't get charged if possible?

    To swap networks in a locked phone, you need to unlock it. I suggest you can approach Unlocking4u.com and specify the country,locked network of Palm Pixi Plus.Based on the availability you can get the permanent unlock service along with free instructions. Once unlocked you can insert the sim that was used in LG Shine 2 and start using it. If your sim does not have a dataplan then without WiFi internet will not work.
