I'm on tmobile prepaid and been waiting for the unlock, I'm thinking about switching to ATNT to avoid having to deal with unlocks.
However, I don't want to pay slot for a plan. I was reviewing the prepaid plans ATNT has and I'm only interested in the Simple Rate plan @ 10cents a minute and 20 for the texting (I only use texting)
So how do I switch?
I know to buy a microsim for ATNT but can I buy one of eBay? What does it have to say cuz I seen some that say "inactive" or something like that
Secondly, will it even work with iPhone 4? I don't wanna waste money trying.
Thanks and please respond

I am unsure myself how to get pre-paid accounts working so hope someone will chime in on that for ya. If I have time later I will look it up. But as for sim you could always just cut one down. Not that hard and best to have a test one to make sure.

yea itll work just make sure if you get a sim its not the orange front sim but the blue as the orange ones are locked to the phone it was purchased with for 6 months so just go to the att store and ask for a sim theyll give you one for free(at least they do where im from)

Some do but other times they charge you. Depends on if it is a corp store or retail. Also on the mood of the people too.

So buy one of these? This one doesn't work anymore due to inactivity

All I see on eBay are the orange colored ones. Those won't work?

The one sim card I have came with the iPhone 4 when I bought if off someone. I tried activating it but I think it doesnt work since it hasn't been used in a while and I think the person had canceled their account for that sim. Is there anything I can do to use it?

It'd be best if you go grab a SIM from an at&t store, IMHO. At least then you'll know it hasn't been used before
Like the above posters said, don't get an orange-colored SIM and find a way to get a MicroSIM or means to cut down a 'regular' SIM.Member of the hackint0sh forums.
