I have an older Nokia phone that I use with Tmobile on a prepaid basis. I use the phone mostly for emergency use. ;)I haveGold Rewards minutes that don't expire for about a year (not even then if I buy $10 more). I want to get a newer prepaid phone from Tmobile or Ebay. Can I move my SIM card from the old one to the new one and continue as I was befrore with minutes, same number etc.?

Don't fully get the relation between SIMS and phones.

Thanks,
Rbuck

FORGOT TO ADD THAT tMOBILE SUPPORT IS WORTHLESS AS FAR AS QUESTION ANSWERING GOES. ON LINE CHAT REPS NEVER SHOW UP!

I forgot to say that the phone number is attached to the SIM card and not to the phone.

I just posted a reply which seems to have disappeared. Here in the UK you can put the SIM into another phone provided that the phone is not locked to another network. If it is locked you can often find the unlock codes on the web and here at least you can easily find small shops which will do it for you. Just make sure that the phone you buy has a removable SIm card . I bought an inexpensive Virgin phone on my last visit to the US and found htee was no visible SIM it seemed to be integral part of the phone. Most American I spoke to didn't seem to know what a Sim card was.
Good luck.
