I have managed to break my mobile phone and have heard that if I purchase a prepaid phone from the same provider that my current sim (on contract) will work without activating the prepaid....has anyine done this successfully? Or have any info on it????Can a contract mobile phone sim card be put into a prepaid phone without extra costs?
Yes, you can do this successfully as long as the Pay as you go Handset is on the same network as your Contract phone. This is due to it being locked on that network. There are no extra charges from your network provider.Can a contract mobile phone sim card be put into a prepaid phone without extra costs?
Yes, lets say you have a plan with vodaphone. If you buy one of there prepaid phones it would be locked to there network for some years. but you have a vodaphone simcard and the prepaid takes any vodaphone sim card so u would not need it unlocked. even if you buy a phone from another provider you can have it up locked if you want to do that but there is normally a fee.Can a contract mobile phone sim card be put into a prepaid phone without extra costs?
you sure can
it shouldnt cost you extra... but you will still be paying of the phone if it is still on a contract. other than that there is no cost in changing the phone you have your sim in. you can swap between as many as you like without a problem
