I am a neophyte when it comes to mobile phones so I want to confirm I’m doing the right thing.
I have a 2.0 refund plan with 2 phones for my son and I so have an awesome average bill of around $28/mo. My son has a Moto G 1st Gen so when I saw the Moto G4 Play was on sale I went to order a new one for him. I was very disappointed to see I couldn’t add that phone to my 2.0 plan. A 3.0 plan will cost about $10/mo more so I’m not going there.
From my digging around, it looks like I can buy a new Moto G 3rd Gen for around the same price as the Moto G4 Play. Is there any specific feature I need to look for or will any Moto G 3rd Gen phone work? I found one on Amazon titled “Motorola Moto G (3rd Generation) - Black - 16 GB - Global GSM Unlocked Phone” but I’m not sure what the GSM is or whether it matters. Do I also need to buy a SIM card? I see that Amazon sells RW SIMs as well.
My wife is interested in taking my son’s Moto G and starting a RW 2.0 plan so taking the SIM from his old phone isn’t an option (if it’s even possible).
I’d appreciate it if someone could confirm my understanding and answer the questions I have about buying a new Moto G 3rd Gen.
