Also remember if you are On Account and move from CDMA to XT then you shouldn't have to pay for your SIM card. SIM cards are only charged on Prepay.

I got mine for free from Telecom because I went on a post pay One Rate plan, no contract but they were nice and gave me a SIM for free because I was going to be spending $150 a month with them.

If you buy a new phone from the telecom website and click the "upgrade mobile" link and enter your number you get the sim free.

I don't really know what you're saying there - but I bought a mobile & sim from the warehouse and was able to port my old vodafone number onto that sim without trouble.  I did it that way because the warehouse was offering half price sims at the time.
