So wanting to leave Virgin Mobile, but the cost of buying a new phone is very steep. I want to get the $40/per month Simply Prepaid plan, and I want to buy an unlocked phone off of eBay. Just wanted to see if anyone else has done this and if T-Mobile allows it? If so, does the phone need to be unlocked or specific to T-Mobile, or either one? Thank for any help!
It needs to be unlocked and compatible. Not all iPhones work across all carriers. Which iPhone (5,6,7) are you wanting? The SE and 6 can cross-carrier work, but the 7/+ is specific as the T-Mobile and AT&T do not use CDMA and cannot cross to Sprint or Verizon and others from Sprint/Verizon CAN work on T-Mobile and AT&T.
