I would swap the sim with the device I have now on bring your own device which is a Samsung galaxy s6 edge. The store wants $510 for the essential phone but online it is $460. I want to pay less obviously lol. The online store wants me to add a plan when I go to check out.

Did you log in to your self-serve account and select that you want to get a new phone rather than add a new line?

Hi Justen,
I would go with the store. It is less hassle and you could avoid the trouble of shipping, credit card payment.. You also need to buy a new SIM ($15) with a new line (free on upgrade) online, I believe.

Did you try to go all the way through to the point you have to pay, I know I thought it was making me choose a plan when I just ordered a phone but then got to a point where it gave me an option to keep my current plan.

Doesnt it only give you the option to keep current plan only if that plan is still available to all? I thought thats how it worked anyway.

Nope mine (well my fathers) was an old grandfathered plan from years ago.
