    I already have an existing prepaid account with Tmobile and is using an old phone with it. I'm thinking of buying a new phone but many new phones use micro sim or nano sim nowadays and this is a problem for me because I don't have one.

    So If I buy a new phone with a micro sim card and walk into a Tmobile store, is it likely that a sales rep will have me buy a new micro or nano sim? The thing is I just bought more minutes for basic call service with the regular sim card and I want to keep my phone number if I can.
    I mean do I just bring in the new phone, pay the $10 for the new micro/nano sim and get a new phone number?
    or can I transfer those recently bought minutes onto this new micro/nano sim card since it's gonna be charged to the same prepaid account right?

    You can keep your number and transfer the minutes.

    Thank you, this helps!
     
  4. I upgraded from an HTC Sensation 4G to a Motorola Moto G LTE... a month-and-a-half ago? They take different SIMs. Got the SIM for the new phone taken care of at the store. Took mere minutes.

    did you have to pay for your sim?
     
  6. No. But that was because I was upgrading at T-Mobile's tech support's suggestion. I'd been using an HTC Sensation 4G, and it and the tower near our home didn't like one another.

    It's only $10, in any event.
