If I purchase an iphone 5s (full msrp), can i use it on your $30 prepaid plan (100 minutes/unlimited data)?
So no restrictions/limitations? I can just walk into a t-mobile store with the 5s and ask for the $30 plan and get it? I ask because some carriers have restrictions on what phones can be used on what plans.
No you can do that as you wish. T-Mobile doesn't put restrictions on prepaid like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint does.
Thank you for your questions. I would like to clarify for you. If you purchase the iPhone 5s for full price and unlocked, say from an Apple store, then you can activate the phone with us.
If you would like to have that specific plan there are a few additional steps. That plan is only available online or through Walmart, as it is a promotional plan. You cannot go into a T-Mobile store to get this plan.
So, pick up the SIM card kit at Walmart for $30.
Purchase the iPhone 5s
Activate the $30 kit with Care. Provide them the non activated Nano-SIM card number that came with the iPhone 5s.
Now you have the $30 plan plus an awesome device.
Thank you both tmo_josh_m and tidbits, you have been very helpful!
Thanks for the helpful reply. How might I transfer my existing $30 prepaid plan from my Android micro-SIM over to the iPhone 5S's nano-SIM?
All you need to do is go to www.t-mobile.com/simwww.t-mobile.com/sim or call Customer Care by dialing 1-800-937-8997. Doing it through the website is really easy. I just did updated to a new Nano-SIM yesterday going that route.
Can you get the $30 plan online?
Quick follow up question. So there is absolutely no way to get this plan except from Walmart itself? There is no way to use the SIM I get in an apple store with this plan?
Problem is, coming from overseas on vacation and buying a phone in NYC, there is no Walmart in the city. So I guess the only way would be to order the SIM kit online from Walmart, right? Travelling to a store is not worth the time, I might as well take the 60$ plan...
Btw, is the first month of the plan included in the 30$ kit?
