Let me be clear... I will never use this phone. My "business" is that I am a self-publisher (my own work only) and only need a phone number to assoc with my DBA for paperwork, but no one will ever call me and I will not call out on this phone. I do all business over email from my laptop. I won't even have the phone turned on.
That said, I don't want to use my personal phone as the DBA phone. So am only getting the $3/mo plan for the 'biz' phone.
My question is, when I sign up, I want the registered name on the phone to be my DBA name, even though I will personally be paying for the pre-paid plan with a personal Credit Card. But I don't want someone to do a reverse lookup online and get my personal name... it has to be the DBA name (otherwise it's pointless to have a sep phone). Or when they call the number, I want the DBA name to show on their phone. (And yes, my DBA is filed, official and legal.)
So when signing up do I have to do anything special? B/c it looks like T-Mobile automatically makes whoever pays for the plan the 'owner' and uses that name without allowing you to choose another.
So long as you sign up for the account with your DBA name, it won't matter what name is on the card paying. You won't have any issue with those names not matching and the name on the account will remain as what was signed up with.
Thank you Lauren, appreciate it.
