There are supposedly some VOIP options that work to allow phone calls with this phone and won't exceed this phone's 100 minutes a month plan.

Just turn on the wifi option of the phone, connect through your home internet connection and use VOIP.

One app that come to mind.
GrooveIP

Also, I have heard you can use voip via a personal google account and your google assigned phone number; though I have not researched it.

You do have unlimited text on this plan, and you don't even have to type. The phone has a voice to text feature so you just speak your message & it types it & sends it.
Another option to consider getting is a free app for "magic jack". You just download it to your phone and you can make all your calls without using any minutes---and its totally free!!

If you take the brand new phone to a T-Mobile store or mall kiosk they will usually activate it for free if you sign up for auto-refill.

I got this phone for the wi-fi calling... because there is NO service in my area.
the answer is - it depends on the plan you have.... I have the pay as you go plan & minutes ARE deducted from my account!
Here's a quick work around... download an app for wifi calling and use google voice .. for free! I've tried this & it works... try teletalk app.

good luck!

Yes. It is possible to purchase this phone and use it on a postpaid plan. When you receive the phone, do not use the SIM card that ships with the phone, instead simply insert your current phone's SIM card into the handset.

Yes. It's like the world's greatest iPod Touch, even without a calling plan. And you can still make and receive calls with Google Voice and GrooveIP and your WiFi!

The wifi feature on an Android phone is not affected by the minutes or data available on your plan. You can always use wifi if there is an access point within range, regardless of the phone service available to you.

Yes, just put the sim card in the new phone and nothing will change, same plan, new phone.

Also note- it is not sim(s), it is sim, even plural it is sim without the (s). Sims is a video game, not a chip.

No you dont have to purchase a plan. In fact this phone will let you use applications like Skype, GMail, GTalk, games, etc without having a SIM card inserted. You will need a WiFi connection however. You can use the phone as if it were a non phone Android device. You can also make emergency calls on this phone if you dont have a SIM inserted. This phone is locked to the T-Mobile network but you should be able to use a compatible T-Mobile SIM card if you already have one.
