Any 2G/3G SIM from any of the mobile phone companies should work in your phone - I had a Nokia 3310 in my '99 E38 which worked just fine on the 3G network. However it is possible if your phone is older than '98 or whenever the GSM network was established you may have an analogue or TDMA phone, in which case you are out of luck.
