February 25, 2016



The Wireless Butler found you a great deal on service from T-Mobile, and you’re ready to make the switch. Here’s how:

You’ll need to have several pieces of information to make the switch:

Your bill, which will answer most of T-Mobile’s questions.Your pin or account password for your current carrier.Your device(s).Your Social Security Number (even the Uncarrier runs credit checks for new customers)

To activate new service online, click here.

To activate new service over the phone, contact T-Mobile at 1-877-413-5903.

If headed to a T-Mobile store:

Also bring: a Photo ID, a Credit Card in your name, and your device(s). T-Mobile might buy devices from you, and you’ll need them to keep your number.

Make sure you back up your devices before you go to the store.

Once you’ve switched:

Don’t forget to cancel or you can become a zombie line and your carrier will continue to bill you!
