As I understand it, if you take a phone from one country to another and try to trade chips, it can only be done if your phone is unlocked. Normally phones are locked, and will not accept other chips, or I have been told. A friend was able to pay a technician to unlock his US purchased iPhone for I think $400 pesos in Guadalajara.
I am not an expert on the subject. So should someone else wish to add to my comments or correct me, please do so.
