Here is my recent experience. I had the same question as you so
tried an experiment.
I got the Motorola C139 with Cingular prepaid last week. I am in
the U.S. I have a prepaid plan with T-mobile and a Nokia 6010 which
I was able to unlock. I put the Cingular Sim into the now unlocked
Nokia and was able to get on the Cingular network. So now I have a
phone that takes either SIM...(I am now trying to find the unlock
codes for the C139 so that I can use the T-mobile SIM with the
Cingular C139.) I asked at the Cingular store and the T-Mobile
store... that if I brought in my own "unlocked" phone, could I get a
SIM card without buying their phone... they said "yes". I asked if
that applied to the prepaid plans and they said "yes".
So now I have a prepaid SIM from Cingular and T-Mobile waiting to go
into the Neo. I bet it will work great.
Hope this info helps!
P.S. I like the flashlight feature on the C139...hope one of the
developers can add this feature to the Neo...great for finding
dropped items in the theater or under car seat ;-))
