Yes, that is correct.

That's actually the whole point of the SIM card - it identifies you to the network, and any phone you put it in becomes "your phone". The only thing to watch is that a phone bought from a network will almost certainly only accept that network's SIMs. So a T-Mobile or unlocked model should be fine (check 3g/4g frequencies on the unlocked model match T-Mobile).

I last bought a handset through a contract in the 90s. Since then I've just bought offline phones and transferred the SIM.
