    Is it possible to switch plans on prepaid? On unlocked iphone 5. Like from straight talk to tmobile prepaid? And how?( just change the SIM card)?

    If unsubsidized phone u can do anything u want.

    If subsidized then you can only do post-paid.

    OP states that the device is unlocked. The subsidy and the lock are two different things. They're typically related but not the same.

    Exactly, so I ignored the irrelevant information and gave him what matters.

    The subsidy is irrelevant; I have a subsidised unlocked iPhone and I can still put a different prepaid SIM in there.

    OP, that's all you need to do; swap SIMs.
