I'm going to need to get a new nano-sim for my new phone, since my current phone is a mini-sim. Is T-mobile going to charge me for this? If so, how much? I'm on a post-paid plan, or whatever the traditional one is called.

Bestbuy has nano sim kits for $5

Even comes with adapters for larger sim trayhs

It's essentially the same price breaking a phone up but it will be over 18 months instead 24 and you can just come in and switch out every 4 months essentially.

Its actually cheaper per month.

So work is going to be getting me a cell phone that I can also use as a personal device.

What is the procedure for me to give back a Jump plan cell phone? Do I owe the remaining balance on the device when I give it back?

You pay off the phone and its yours. You cant turn it in.

"Thank you for reaching out to us. The information provided is absolutely correct, if you were to cancel the unpaid balance of the phones would be due on the final bill."

Seems like my question was just answered above but I'll ask anyways.

I have the regular Galaxy S6 that I got through T-Mo with Jump. Coming off yesterday's new Moto X announcement I'm more interested in ditching the S6 and buying the X in September. Doing so will drop my plan cost ($115 currently to the new price of $79 with Jump + S6 removed). However I was told through T-Mo support that I can't return the S6 at all, so I assume I have to continue paying it off correct? Is there no way to return it even if I'm staying within T-Mobile? I noticed that in that support thread posted above the guy asking was planning on leaving T-Mo.

Worst case I probably will just have to pay off the S6 and then I can sell it once I own it right? I can't go ahead and do that now? I'm just really confused :smith:

You buy the phone when you do jump. You arn't renting it. If you want off jump you have to pay off the phone.

How much is Tmobile's $80 unlimited plan after taxes and fees? I'm currently on a 4gb/mo plan with verizon and paying $89 plus 3-4 $10 overage charges for ages, and even the new verizon 6gb plan will raise my bill to around $100.

It looks like Tmobile has great coverage here in Seattle & Bellevue since it's their hometown, but not sure how well their network is going to work for me while hiking on the coast or in the cascades. It's fairly rare I'm out there but just curious since verizon has been great in rural areas for me.

This will be different everywhere. Id recommend calling a local store. they should be able to tell you.

You have to trade in your 1999 POS verizon or whatever carrier flip phone.

And dont even think about buying a brand new iphone6s on contract and then having Tmobile pay off your ETF as it would be terribly dishonest.

The phone will be unlocked and work on any carrier so you wouldn't have to worry about what Apple wants you to do.

It may have to be activated before you leave the store. Apple probably gets a kickback.

Probably right but you could activate it on your current plan and then immediately jump ship. It's still unlocked and you're not signing a carrier contract.

Yea, but i imagine most people doing this wont already have a current plan unless they were planning on cancelling and jumping to prepaid as soon as the new iphone came out.

Thanks, all very helpful advice. Doesn't T-Mobile automatically roam to AT&T in areas where T-Mo doesn't have service and AT&T does? I thought that at least was the case a while back.

It depends on the area. It does if you are in an area with a roaming agreement.

The problem isn't allowing toggling of Binge On, the problem is having a tier of service where you have to pay more to have non-"optimized" traffic.

Then just pay the full amount and consider the regular price a discount.

Or just go to a different phone company.

The sim being activated or not has nothing to do with the old phone seeing a sim.

The sim with the phone is unactivated. Take the sim out of the old phone and put it in the new phone.

Is there any way to check to see if T-Mobile has good coverage in a specific area? Kind of a goofy question I know but i might be able to be the freebie 4th person on the One plan if not for the doubts of the potential customer that they'll get good reception in their area of upstate New York. I want to recommend the plan to her but i don't want her to get stuck with worse phone service on contract.

Before i switched I bought the cheapest prepaid T-Mobile phone I could and just called 611 a bunch from it without activating it.
