I was just given a old Blackberry that is unlocked. I want to change my current plan to work on this phone. I have an old sim card that was previously active on this account, but is not currently being used. Can I just add my old card into this 'new to me' phone??

It was active about 3 months ago, then switched to a non sim card phone. Now was wondering if we can go back?

Oh that's tough to say because it's after 90 days it becomes inactive (the sim) and you need to buy a new one. Go on self-serve and try and make the change. If it doesn't accept it, you most likely need a new sim card.

Thanks so much for the help! Guess I will just have to try it and see if it works and if not will have to get new card.

Hey Heather, if you do need a new sim card, the cost of a new one(postpaid) is $10 + tax :).
