Thread: T-Mobile Prepaid(card) sim on iPhone? HELP PLEASE!

    Exclamation T-Mobile Prepaid(card) sim on iPhone? HELP PLEASE!
    Hello there everyone,

    I am a newbie to this wonderful online community. I am hoping someone could help me in the following issue:
    CAN I USE T-MOBILE PRE-PAID SIM ON AN UNLOCKED iPhone? I am talking about the pre-paid that you have to refill with cards not the prepaid plans.
    the reason being that i have to be satisfied with the performance of my unlocked iPhone before i go in for some kind of a monthly plan.

    Thanks All!

    T-MOBILE PRE-PAID SIM works fine on my unlocked iPhone, I just need to find out how to put T-Zone on.

    It should work with any SIM you just cant get data plans or data service on prepaid (refill ones). Only works on wifi for web.

    Yes, you won't be able to get cellular data, only wifi. You can still talk and text (they may charge for texts, depends on your plan).
    If I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->
