T-Mobile prepaid mobile question
Posted by: silvarios
Date: February 20, 2006 06:05PM
If I pick up a T-Mobile prepaid mobile phone, can I swap in the SIM from my current T-Mobile phone. My current Nokia is falling apart and I don't want to sign a new contract in order to receive a cheap new phone. I don't actually want to use the prepaid starter SIM, just my current SIM card.

Does this course of action make sense? Thanks.

Yes.

Just because it has two clutches, shifts faster, uses a torque converter or has near-infinite gear ratios, requires less driver intervention and is more efficient doesn't make it better in my opinion.

The Nokia flip phone 6101 T-Mobile pre-paid that they have on sale at Target for $88 this week is a very nice phone. My daughter has it and likes it.

I saw that 6101 deal, but I was not sure if I need anything terribly fancy. The model Nokia I have is about 40 months old, at least, only has monochrome screen and is limited to AOL IM (you can use Yahoo via text messaging, but there is no integrated client). Overall, very basic came free with the plan.

Is that prepaid T-Mobile candy bar style mobile (6010 maybe) a respectable basic choice?

Ritz camera has free T-Mobile phones (after rebate) with purchase of $25 prepaid card. Sell the card on ebay and you have a more or less free phone.

. . .careful how "basic" a phone you get. . .one of my older nokia phone doesn't have the GPRS (is that what it is called?)

You can't access the account balance from the phone. . .which is one of the nice features. . .

The 6010 is very good.

Very basic.
