I lost my phone, but still have a tab to pay off. If I buy a new phone, and a new sim card, can I continue paying off my bill with the new phone? Or do I have to pay off the entire tab and start again?

You can buy out the new phone full retail price and continue to pay off your current tab. Or you can bill yourself out on self serve for your current tab. Your tab will be at zero and you can redeem the tab towards another phone again if you'd like. Keep in mind the tab has to be billed or payed over the counter prior to upgrading or getting a replacement.

You don't actually start over again really. You may have a few dollars left on your tab and thast you have to payoff at the time of the new phone. But you will also have access to a bigger tab so you pay less for the new phone upfront. Yo umay actually be ahead of the game .
