No, I don't need to reprogram my phone. Besides, I think technology has changed a bit
The sim card in my Motorola can be installed in almost any other brand to emulate it if my phone ever breaks. It keeps my contacts and all other information and makes another phone act like mine.
I'm simply trying to download my pics without having to email them FROM the phone to my email, and possibly synch the calendar on the phone with my Outlook calendar at work.
