As the Subject line says can I use a walmart family samsung galaxy sii with t-mobile sim card? I am looking for a replacement phone for what I currently have and want to know if this will work. It's a t-mobile branded phone so I don't see why it wouldn't but thought I would ask before dropping $300+
think you might need to get it unlocked andcheck with family mobiles policy on that.
but not sure
You actually don't need to unlock any of the prepaid t-mobile phones available at walmart, but if the "walmart family" phones are supposed to be tied to their plan it may not work that way. I've got a "prepaid" GS2 and a couple of the cheaper phones on my family plan through tmobile and i was easily able to just drop my sim cards in there instead of the one in the box. (great way to upgrade phones for the kids cheaply) . A Tmo employee was the one who actually suggested it to me when I came in looking for a cheap temporary/emergency phone to replace a broken phone.
