With GSM phones (if not locked), you would be contractually allowed to use any compatible (i.e., proper band for the country at issue) GSM phone with the SIM chip from your carrier.

I do agree that repeaters above 100 mw need a license which you don't > have if you're not a cell carrier.

I'd have to look at the Part 15 regs to be be certain what the limits are in the cellular, PCS, and SMR bands, but that sounds like the right ballpark.
