    I have no phone nor existing contract at this time. I want the T-Mo/Walmart $30/month prepaid plan, but with the Samsung S3, rather than with only the phones T-Mo offers with those prepaid plans.

    So, do I go to T-Mo, purchase an unlocked SgS3, go to T-Mo online to get the MicroSim, and then get the prepaid card online from Walmart?

    Sorry for the 'noob' question...

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi there, welcome to WA, your "noob" question appears to have us stumped.

    I don't have an answer for you but hope someone will soon. :)

    I couldn't edit my OP... guess it's because I'm brand-new to the site. In my post, I didn't mean 'unlocked', but 'non-contract' phone price, ie, the full-retail, non-subsidized phone price.

    That's what I figured what you meant although unlocked would work as well. I think you are on the right track, and don't see a reason why it shouldn't work.

    However you may want to call TM and Walmart both to verify.

    Good luck .

    I think you don't have to ask, these are the right steps, to get your desired "contract" :=

    Get a non contract phone for tmobile i guess around 500-600$ which they will unlock after sometime (3-4 months). Goto tmobile store and ask for the 30$ unlimited data plan with 100 mins talking. You can get that directly at tmobile dont have to go to wallmart for that.
