If you change the sim card from your old phone into the new one you probably should.

i think cell phones are going to be the cause for the fall of Western society.

Phones have to be unlocked in order to be used across different carriers. If your friends have Sprint then its fine, but if they have something like AT&T or T-Mobile, then you'd have to call the carrier to get them unlocked, which costs money, but I don't think its an outrageous amount.
*Edit*: It'd be nice for me to actually read the thread...I think you can take phones to the carrier and get a SIM card. Although, I'm not sure since your friends do have Cingular. But, again, if you get the phone unlocked and have a SIM card for your service then I think it'd work.
