Sim card


I currently have an iPhone 8 Plus on the next plan. If I buy an iPhone X that is AT&T unlocked, can I switch the SIM cards? And does that mean I have to pay the rate of the iPhone X or do I keep making payments on my iPhone 8 Plus until it is paid off? Thanks.

Hello @Cliley,

Thanks for reaching out! If you do purchase an iPhone X outright, we encourage you to use a different SIM card with it. You can visit one of our stores, and have them set up the device for you. You will be able to acquire a SIM card in-store, and they can help you set the device up. As for the iPhone 8 Plus, you will need to continuing paying the device off. Let us know if you need anything else!
