it does not have to be the same phone your sim card will fit in any phone that you can get through your provider. Becasue when you get a new one through them all they do is take out the sim and put it in the new phone. I use to have nextell and my phone broke but I had to wait for the upgrade to so I just used one of my huby's old nextell phones and I took it to them and they switched the sim card for me for free. I could have done it myslef but i did not know if all the contacts would transfer if I did that.

You have two options. A SIM card will work in any phone that is set up for your carrier (cell phone company) so as long as it's the same you're good. I'd recommend going onto eBay and getting a "unlocked" phone. This means it can take any SIM card and isn't locked into just one phone company. You can get a variety of phones at pretty cheap prices on eBay and they're brand new.
