No, but you can unlock phones to work on other networks

SIM cards are locked to their providers, so are cell phones, but a cell
phone can be unlocked. A sim card has company specific information- its
one way kids off the street get busted when they come in wanting a deal
without a contract- they were too stupid to remove the card.

Hi, Can you explain (for a novice) "unlocking a phone to work on other
networks"?
Thanks.
