It seems a bit premature to be shopping for service this early. That
said, the two GSM carriers in New York are T-mobile and Cingular, and
either should be fine in terms of compatibility. (Cingular is about to
be re-branded AT&T again.) I don't personally know which is going to
give higher quality service -- I've heard complaints about both -- but
with either it should be a simple matter of popping your SIM out of
the old phone and into the Neo1973.
