Question for cell phone enthsiasts [View all]

I need to replace my cell phone and found one I want to buy, but it turns out (surprise surprise) that it's cheaper online than at the T-Mobile store.

So, if I get it online, is it just a matter of switching the little card (with the phone info) to the new phone, or do I need to take it to a store so they can do whatever? I'm not worried about the apps or contact list, just about getting the phone to work. Any good links to info on this would be welcome.
