According to Reddit T-Mobile is often insisting on charging a $25 fee regardless of whether a T-Mobile SIM card is in the device or not. It's a SIM fee but it really functions as an activation fee.

  This is 100% correct. T-Mobile will charge you a "SIM Starter Kit" fee of $25 right now even if you bring your own SIM card so this really isn't a deal at all.

That means is not worth to get it?

Two Thoughts:

1. Did you get this from a Rep at TForce or 611?  Many people are reporting using their own un-activated SIM without issue and without $25 fee during the Free Line Promo yesterday.  Nice to have your own SIM on hand so there's no wait to activate/use it.  There is a common issue with mis-information/overcharging when you go to a physical store.

2. Ask for a Bill Credit to cover the $25 Fee.  Many are reporting they can't get it waived, but success in getting a $25 bill credit.
