Will someone be able to active my S4 if I'm still paying for it through T-Mobile, but have my Moto X active on the account?

I don't think so. I wondered the same with my S3. But T-Mobile rep said the phone will not be able to be activated on another number if it is not paid off on my number. So i paid it off.

Do you mean to make a new account? Because as long as they just swap sim cards and you keep paying it, there should be no problem

IMEIs are saved per account. When they swap SIM cards, the will know the phone is no longer under the same account. Honestly OP, best bet would be to call up and ask.

Does this mean that people will not be able to sell their payment plan phones If it's not paid off? Because that's good news, no more scams where ppl sell the phone and stop paying the bill

No one can stop a scammer except an inform consumer.

I was going to sell my phone on Swappa but thought about this before I listed it because I didn't want to screw anyone over. If that's the case then I may have to return my Moto X :-/ Either that or dig myself even deeper into debt and pay off the remaining balance on the S4, sell it on Swappa and hopefully recoup my losses....

I just had to call up customer service and tell them that a friend was going to be using the phone while I was paying it off.
