On some t-mobile phones you can use your cingular/at&t sims card,but on some phones after putting a t-mobile sims card in a cingular phone may cause the phone to lock up.....BUT u can unlock your phone by calling your network from another phone or logging on to your account on the internet(I PERFER CALLING YOUR NETWORK).You can also unlock it but putting another cingular sims card back in a cingluar phone then your phone should work correctly if still locked call your service provider but your t-mobile phone shouldn't get locked if u put a cingular sims card in it your phone should work perfectly fine but if not call u service provider.

Can you take your tmobile sim card and put it in a prepaid tmobile phone and it work on your plan?

Yes. if it is a tmobile sim card and a tmobile phone then this will definitely work. you will also be able to carry on with the same price plan and number you used before. If you currently have a Tmobile phone on a contract plan that is complete you can also just change your plan to a pre paid plan and keep on using the phone that you have. UPDATE: As of April 2012, TMobile prepaid phones may only connect to T Mobile towers, limiting your signal (since they also use ATT towers) and giving you varied signal strength depending on your location. So, it's best to unlock any prepaid phone. Ask T Mobile to send you the unlock code or pay someone to unlock your phone.
