I want to switch from AT&T to T-Mobile and I just bought an unlocked phone from Nokiausa.com, a N97 mini. Will I be able to use the same phone, and not have a contract as a post paid customer? Thanks for any info.

well if you do the no contract evenmore plus plan you can have it on postpaid you just have to quailify for post paid...there is still a credit check.

ok. I have never had to have a CC with ATT. Does that carry any merit? And have you known of any custmers who paid a zero deposit? Also I have seen people asking about roaming and international data service. Will I still have all of that or is there an extra charge? Thanks!

It depends upon how much data you're going to use, and how you want to pay your bill. Prepaid is not flexible with paying for it, postpaid offers more flexibility and the ability to sign a contract down the road when you want a new phone. Also, the n97 mini won't work at 3G speeds unfortunately.

How can I tell when a phone wont work at 3G speeds? What did you look at to determine that the N97 mini wont work at 3g speed?

To work on T-Mobile's 3G network it must have the 1700MHz or AWS bandwidth. This is the frequency that T-Mobile's 3G operates on.
