Can I switch a sim card to a different phone?

Question by cooookiemonstah: Can I switch a sim card to a different phone?
My mom is finally getting a cell phone to use this summer and after that she’s giving it to me. She’s getting the free phone which is ugly and I was wondering if I could go on ebay or something and buy a phone and put my sim card in it and it would still work the same. My mom is getting t-mobile so would it have to be a t-moblie phone in order for it to work?

yep, as long as the phone is in the same category then the sim card should fit.

  1. sim card would work in any phone, as long as it is either t-mobile phone
    or an unlocked one.
    unlocked phones are found on ebay under the specification, simlock.
    hope this helps

  2. Yes as long as it’s a T-Mobile phone or an unlocked phone that uses SIM card such as AT&T. However, if you buy a phone that isn’t from T-Mobile but also uses a SIM card, make sure it’s considered “unlocked” or else you won’t be able to access the phone with your SIM card in it.
