    Default Looking for a trial prepaid plan/phone. Confused about choices

    My apologies if that's been asked before. Couldn't find any relevant threads.

    I'm currently with AT&T. I'd like to give T-Mobile a test trial with a prepaid phone to see if I get better connection in one of the rural areas we go to sometimes. AT&T connection there is pretty bad and drops off entirely at times. Friends claim that they had seen T-Mobile work a lot better down there.

    So, my questions are: 1 - whether Samsung T-199, which supposedly comes with a SIM card is all I need to give it a try? And 2 - does it come with some low number of minutes?

    Phone I'm considering:
    T mobile samsung prepaid cell phone, T199 - Walmart.com

    Thanks so much.

    If you just want to test out the network, do their 7 day Test Drive. They send you an iPhone 5s to use for free for 7 days on their network. You just have to return it to one of their stores by the end of the week. Easy! My wife did it. T-Mobile Test Drive | Try our 4G LTE Network for Free

    Great. Wasn't even aware of that option. Thanks so much for pointing it out.

    A follow up question please. Says they'd ship it 2nd day. Do they typically stick to 2-day shipping? I visit that rural area ever 3-4 weeks so I may need to time trial phone delivery just right, hence my question. Thanks again.

    When my wife did it, I believe it came in 2 days. It's probably 2 business days, so keep that in mind if you place the order on a Thursday or Friday.
