    I work for T-Mobile, but am currently with Cincinnati Bell Wireless for my cell phone plan. I'll be switching to T-Mobile very shortly, but I'm not a big fan of most of our phones, and don't want to pay $250 for the Samsung E715. What I was thinking of doing was just buying another phone from Best Buy or another store like it, and swapping the SIM chip in my T-Mobile phone to the one I bought from Best Buy or whatever. Would this work, or would I have to have the purchased phone "unlocked" or whatever?

    Any information you all have for me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    most places like best buy wont sell a phone w/o an upgrade or a new act but if you get one that is already for t-mobile all you have to do is put your sim card in it

    Doesn't T-Mobile provide employee lines?? Guess you're working for an indirect dealer? But yes, most stores like best buy and circuit city will sell you a phone w/o activation. If you're starting new service with t-mobiel you should be able to get a lot better deal then $250...

    Yep, indirect dealer/franchise type thing. Anyway, my boss is calling his boss and is getting me a better deal (like turbodeuce said), and I'm just getting the Samsung E715 along with a T-mobile plan. Ported my line over today and everything's working great so far. Thanks for the info fellas.
