Can I change phones without dealing with T-Mobile?

If I were to buy a pre-paid T-Mobile phone... could I simply take the SIM card out of my current (contract) T-Mobile phone, place it in the pre-paid phone, and use it? Or do I have to call T-Mobile and have them activate the pre-paid phone to work with my SIM card or whatever?

Hope that's a clear enough question.

    You can use whatever phone you want. A lot of people I know buy unlocked phones (such as the Motorola MING) and use those.

    I do that transferring phone to phone. One phone is good for text messaging, one is for when I want to look "flashy".

    You don't need to call them.
