My android moto phone is getting old and isn’t updating so I found a prepaid tmo samsung A13 at Walmart. Is this new phone “locked” into having to start a new prepaid plan or can I just simply put my existing postpaid sim card into it and turn it on and i’ll have my same service? Thanks!

If you already have a TMobile plan you can switch out the sim if it fits.
Thanks gramps28. Yes, I have an existing tmo plan, just an old phone (with a micro sim) so as long as the new tmo branded prepaid phone at walmart takes a micro sim, I should be okay. Thanks again. I didn’t know if the phone intended for a prepaid plan was somehow locked into a prepaid plan activation or something.
Yep you should be fine. If it's a 5G phone you may want to get a new sim down the road.
Okay, yes it is a 5G phone so thanks for the recommendation on a new sim card. I’m thinking one might come with the new phone since it’s a TMO branded prepaid phone. Thanks!
On a side question, would a “Metro by TMO” prepaid phone work on my TMO plan? Or would I first have to get it “unlocked”?
Little delayed answer to the metro question. You would first have to get the phone for metro unlocked to use it for T-mobile.
