Buy the phone and order a SIM Card Activation Kit from T-Mobile's website
for $0.99. Once you have the SIM, you need to activate it online to get the $30 Walmart plan -- and be sure to select the right $30 plan, as there is another $30 plan that is Voice and text only. If you have any problem activating online, it will show a phone number where you can activate the SIM and, again, make sure they know you are wanting the $30 Walmart plan.
Note: the SIM card kit is free today (10/29), so if you think you might have any interest in moving to T-Mobile order it today. The Kit is good for at least 3 years. Though this is only for the Standard size SIM, the Micro SIM is still 99 cents. Though a standard SIM can be cut down to Micro SIM size.
