He gave you the correct answer. If you have an ATT phone, all you have to
do is insert the old sim in the new phone if the new phone is not locked
into another system. Also depending on how you saved your phone numbers,
they may also be saved in the sim and you will not need to put them in
tehnew phone. Some phones give you the option of storing numbers in the sim
or phone memory, or a combination of both.
Over the years I have had several 'free' ATT phones. Sometims when I get a
new phone, I find I like the old one beter and just switch the sim card
The rice idea is a good one also. Sometimes the water is not a problem when
it drys out.
I'm going to give it a few days in rice, then go to ebay. Seems I can get
one for about 1/3 what they want at CellPhonesRUs.
Just wanted to ask before buying something that might be another migraine.
No phone call needed to ATT. I did this not long ago, not with a
prepaid but with a friends old phone. I went online and it knows what
phone I am using.
My old phone died due to absence from anger management.
Whenever I get a new phone I keep the older one. That way if
the new one were to die, I always have one. With Verizon you
can get a pretty decent phone for either free or $50 every 2
years. So, I figure if one gets lost or quits, I could just go
back to the previous phone until I'm elligible for the upgrade
I have Verizon cell phone service.
My original phone, a Motorola Razr3 bought from Verizon with the plan,
got dropped and damaged. The phone still worked, but the display panel
Fortunately, my daughter had previously had the same Razr3 before she
bought a new upgraded phone and plan, and her old, now unused Razr was
still in the house.
I just went to the Verizon site and changed my service from my broken
phone to her old Razr. No problems changing it, no charge, kept my same
phone number, and the change was instantaneous.
