Unlocked iPhone 3 and existing Pay as You go account?

I just upgraded my Bell iPhone for work, and thus have as spare iPhone 3G. My husband has a very old Nokia on a Pay-as-you Go account with a credit of over $350 on it. If I get the iPhone unlocked from Bell, can he use it for his existing Pay-as-you-go account? He doesn't need cellular data, just phone and text. If this works, what do I have to do?

 

Many thanks!

Hello reszes

As long as the Bell iPhone is unlocked and you get a Rogers sim card, everything will be fine. It will work without any issues. Get him to unlock the phone and register a pay as you go Rogers sim. Then add the sim into the phone. You are set:)

Thanks for the quick reply - just to confirm, he should be able to continue with the same Pay-as-you go number and keep his $350 balance for the iPhone?

Hello reszes

You are welcome!.

Yes that is correct. Nothing wil change. You are only adding a new phone in which Rogers will not or do anything.
