Can you recommend a SIM card for Linux-based Motorola Ming?

Looking for a service that includes voice and data through a SIM card. Any suggestions? The phone is unlocked. Also, wondering if it is true that this phone can’t be “spied” on (with that cellspy program) because it runs on Linux? Pros/Cons of running Linux?

    While the term "Linux" is often used to refer to any and all OSes based on the Linux kernel, it's really not helpful in certain cases (mostly non-PC platforms). Whatever OS that was hand-coded for that device may utilize the Linux kernel at it's core, but that really means nothing in determining the platform you want to run, as it likely will share little to no similarities with other handsets running other Linux-based software.

    Hi gmarie808
    If you are in the US, you should be able to use any sim card from ATT wireless or T-mobile since the phone is unlocked. As for Linux, it's a great OS. Any phone can be spied on, it's a matter of circumstances. cellspy works with Bluetooth, so keep it off unless you are using it and it should be fine.

      Great info, makes sense. Found a wireless service called SIMple Mobile that offers a $60 unlimited everything plan, which is cheaper than ATT and others here in Hawaii. Thanks for the Bluetooth advice as I often overlook it being on.
