THis is on sale every month for 0.99 or free. Not hot.

I took my $.99 Starter Kit to a T-Mobile phone store.  An attendant was able to upgrade an older-model SIM card so my prepaid plan now includes free WiFi calling.  There was no charge for the service.  In fact, the attendant told me I did the right thing by buying it online because the T-Mobile store price was $19.99. That was about a year ago.  You may be right about it going on sale every month,  but I've only noticed the $.99 sale price once since then.

These work just fine on postpaid lines as well, and yes, lots of stores will charge $20 for a SIM card on a new phone. Last month the store we go to wanted $20 each for SIMs on new phones, they have never charged us for SIM cards before.

I have used the prepaid kit SIM cards on several phones on prepaid service, I do the activation on the internet, and they work just fine.

If I were looking for more SIMs for T-Mo, I would certainly jump on this. The last two batches I ordered from T-Mo directly were pre-registered to me even though they weren't activated. That caused problems when I have a SIM to a family member for their iPad. So I no longer keep more than one or two around since the ones from T-Mo direct aren't completely clear to activate on any account.


So these from WorstBuy presumably not linked to anyone's account.

$3.99 at T-Mobile 

also the cheapest way to convert your landline to google voice.

I bought this. The SIM they shipped me was "cold"; not scanned in their system. So T-Mobile says they can't activate it and I have to talk to Best Buy. Best Buy says they can't fix it over the phone and I have to take the SIM into the store. Hassle.

Well, I do need a reminder every 5 years or so why I should never do business with Best Buy.
 

Does any know if this SIM could be activated for a post-paid line? I don't want it for pre-paid.
Thanks .

  I have used T-Mobile prepaid SIM cards on post-paid lines several times. You can do the SIM swap yourself via the website.

I believe that WalMart sells them for $5 as their regular price, so if you don't want to wait and have a lower chance of getting one that hasn't been scanned at the warehouse that might be an option.

  They are all pre-registered now.  I just take them into a T-Mobile store, they realize this then pull another one out of their drawer.  Have done it 3 times and not been charged.
