    Hello, I was wondering that if I bought an Unlocked Razr V3 off the internet then bought the T-Mobile To Go Starter kit that included a Sim card, if I put that sim card into the back of the razr would the phone allow me to activate it like it would as if I bought the phone from t-mobile.

    Yes, you will be able to activate it. Call the T-Mobile Act. #(877-778-2107) and when it asks for the IMEI just enter the RAZR's. FYI, when the automated system asks for an Agent Code(which since you bought it online you probably don't have) just press the # key.

    I guess you can, but since my store goes through a master dealer we only get credit from the imei's purchased through them so I wouldn't be able to use mine. Kinda stinks.

    So as long as i put the T-Mobile to Go SIM card in the back of the Unlocked Razr the phone will automatically be a T-mobile Prepaid phone when i activate it. Will there be any differences as if i bought the phone and started pack from directly T-Mobile. Besides the warranty.

    So thats it. Other than that the phone should be fully functional? Also is there anything special i need to know when i try to activate the unlocked phone with a brand new T-Mobile prepaid SIM card.

    When you activate your tmobile sim the prepaid account is ready to make calls. Configure the phone with the above link and you will be able to use tzones, text, and pic/sound messages. In order to be able to receive pic/sound messages you must first enable it by sending one pic message from the phone. I don't know why you have to do this but it turns on the MMS receive feature.

    Yes, put in the SIM and start talking. Configure the phone as mentioned if you want to use the rest of the features. If it is already a tmobile phone then it will already be configured.
