Help me switch from AT&T to Prepaid using same phones
I've gone through misc threads on here, but I still need help.
We want to be able to use our existing AT&T phones (Samsung i897, etc.) , but since our contract is up with AT&T, we want to switch to a less expensive pre-paid plan (Current bill is $200/mo for 3 phones). We're looking for an all included package. (Heavy on the data allowance, at least 500 min of talk & free texting for under $50/mo.)
Can this be done? Are there SIM cards that we can purchase to use in these phones? The threads that we've found require that you purchase new phones... We need to save the $ by using our existing phones. Thanks!
You can use your phone on T-mobile (once you unlock them) and then go for a pre-paid $50 monthly 4G plan from T-mobile. The big negative could be the 3G and 4G data. ATT and T-mobile have different frequency and thus your ATT phone would only work on Edge on T-mobile
