I am sorry if this has been posted elsewhere in this forum; I have searched and could not find what I wanted. My issue is this--I have a dumbphone with TMobile. I have about 10 minutes on my prepaid plan left. I want to switch to a very reasonably priced smartphone. I've deternined that the $30 prepaid plan with TMobile is a reasonable plan. A saleswoman at Walmart told me that I must purchase the $50 prepaid plan if I have a smartphone--is that true? I am not working now, and $50 is out of the question for me right now.
Also, I would like a smartphone with at least a 2 mp camera and a full screen, no keyboard taking up room on the phone. Could anyone please suggest a phone, and from where I would get it for the best price--Amazon, Ebay, Walmart, other? I would like a very basic phone for $50 - $75 if that's possible.
Thank you for any help you can give me. I've spent hours researching this and become more confused after reading post after post.
Ok, thank you very much. One more question then, I have a prepaid simple phone right now with TMobile. and want to keep the number. If I purchased a new phone, would that qualify as a new activation--would I be able to keep my number?
I think you would have to port your number out to some other prepaid carrier first. Then you could port it back in on the new $30 plan. I don't think they will let you port it directly to the $30 plan.
