    Hi all,

    I don't call much. I just like the features and the applications, so I am going to buy a new iPhone4 or iPhone4S ( without contract ) but I am not sure that does it works well on prepaid card?

    I saw this video clip on YouTube about "Cut Sim Card to Micro Sim Card" to use Go Phone ( Pay As You Go ) AT&T:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j3YmDNekVs

    If yes, so do I use the refill card T-Mobile which I am using right now on my Nokia6070 for iPhone4 ( if I cut my Sim card )

    Another question is:
    If I use that plan by refill card, can I use iPhone4 for watching movie or surf internet on wireless and download apps / games ?

    Thank you guys for reading and answering!​

    Yes it will work fine, but don't expect 3G since the iPhone 4 has different 3G frequency. So you will be stuck with EDGE!

    T-Mobile offers micro sim cards as well. You can go to the store and ask for one. I think they are $10. Just in case you mess that one up, like I've done. :D

    Why don't they show it on website for people to check out?:eek:

    Actually, I really don't call much. I just text or call 3-5 times/ days and each time is about 3-5 minutes. Sometime, I have no calls on a week, so it wastes money to make any contracts.

    I am just interested in iPhone 4 about their apps. Some of them are very helpful for me.

    In addition, I have another question about using some cards.:)

    I see this AT&T prepaid card on Walmart:
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/AT-T-150-Minutes-US-International-Rechargeable-Pre-Paid-Phone-Card/5634373

    If I buy an unlocked iPhone 4 then use this AT&T SIM card:
    http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-ph...rd&q_sku=sku981990#fbid=qlzGQXYgH9A?tabModule

    and cut it into Micro Sim Card like many guide videos on YouTube, so do they work well together?:apple:


    Same things above, I also have 2 options for that:
    1. Refill cards: http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-refill-cards
    2. Sim Card of T-Mobile: http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-phone/T-Mobile-Prepaid-SIM-Activation-Kit

    I am not sure which services between AT&T or T-Mobile should I chose. Does anyone use that way before? I feel I am illegal to use that way.:(

    I have a friend, who used to use cutting sim of T-Mobile, have more troubles about signal. He said there is no signal when he use that way. :( But I don't know what plan he took. Maybe he took the contract plan. Unlike me, I am going to take prepaid card plan ( if it works ) :D
