When getting Accessories for the phone MAKE SURE it is for the T-MOBILE VERSION. Because there is TWO version of this phone the T-Mobile and the International version. The T-mobile version have a slightly smaller screen and is sized physically smaller so if you got the International version accessories (case,screen protector) it will not fit properly.
USA version is P769. If you search for accessories with that you will find what you need.
Q: If I already am on a post-paid T-Mobile plan (i.e., Classic or Value), can I buy this phone and use it on my post-paid service?
A: Yes. You can do this over the phone and they can assist transferring your old SIM card to the included microSIM card. Once that is done, you can pop the microSIM into your phone and start using it. You can also go into any T-Mobile retail store, and they will do the transfer for you for free.
You can also login to your tmo account online and do a change of SIM. Just keep your new SIM number (printed on the SIM) handy.
Galaxy SII also now comes with a $50 pre-paid card.
