BACKGROUND: I had a Moto E phone that was damaged. I switched out the SIM card into a Moto G. Was working fine. I dropped it into the pool and it became sluggish, with occasional difficulty with some functions. It stopped working entirely (refuses to charge.). Thus I need a new phone.
I am wondering if I could purchase, locally, one of the approved ‘bring your own phones’ and put the SIM card in for immediate access to phone service or if I will need to purchase a new SIM card package to be delivered in a few days.
