    Question pre paid SIM TMOBILE?

    Advertisement



    just a quick question. i just bought a 30.00 pre paid SIM card on ebay, activated with a phone number and i can add minutes to it. bla bla bla just to play with in my extra bb. so the seller emailed me telling me i can just call tmobile and change the number, add minutes. he gave me the phone number, DOB? im guessing (date of birth), PIN number. Ok, so this is my first SIM card purchase being pre paid and all and not really sure how this works. when i change the number and call TmOBILE do i just tell them i bought from ebay? why did he give me the PIN? what is the PIN for? why did he give me the DOB? i guess any info you can give me would be great..

    THANKS

    Lol did it come with minutes? I hope so bc why would you pay 30$ for a $10 prepaid sim ? Anyway if you want to change the number yes you call cust care to change it. They ask you for the pin on the account for verification. Don't need the dob but sometimes they would've used the year as a pin. Also you know prepaid doesn't work w bb data?

    oh I thought you meant you paid $30 for an active sim without having $$ on it..tmo ran a promotion for like 2months where they gave free $30 refills for activating a prepaid...

    You can change the plan from either pay as you go (yours now is 33cents a min) or pay by the day $1/day, 10cents a min, free nights, free tmo to tmo
