Prepaid balances can really only be used to claim more minutes, data or baseplan, not for hardware purchases. And unless things have changed recently, prepaid SIMS have different programming... an old post-paid SIM will not work on a prepaid plan.

No to using prepaid balance for the cost of a new sim.

Old sim as in having been used somewhere else and then deactivated? I would say No.
If its an old prepaid sim that was never used before then yes I would say you could get that activated.
