Requires a credit card to order.

In for two, I have two old TMO phones that no longer have plans. Better to have 10 minutes, than none.

Why...?

I get that T-Mobile's trying to attract new customers, but it would've made more sense for them to charge something for each kit.

chris83190 11-26-2012 02:08 AM

why does it always ask me questions on when i was born, how long i lived here for, and stuff like that?

Tries to match you with public records. If they can't find you, probably your order won't go through or will be cancelled later.

checkout 11-26-2012 02:22 AM

Tried 5 times. This is what i get:

Damnit! I paid $1 a week ago, should have waited.. Don't even have my nexus 4 yet so i was in no rush.

chris83190 11-26-2012 02:27 AM

can I use these sim cards to switch to an iphone5 or lumia 900 when im currently on a no contract family plan?
or are these for if u want to use the phones as go phones only?

After 5 try's, getting a "generic error" message on the TM site, I finally got a confirmation. In for 2. Been thinking about jumping the Virgin Mobile ship for a while now. I'll hold on to these til I figure out which phone to use. I don't know if these expire or not, but FREE dismisses my concerns. Keep trying everyone.

I'd recently lost my phone.Luckily I had one of these laying around and was able to buy a phone off craigslist and was up and running the same day.The T-mobile stores don't like to help the prepaid customers cause there's no commission in it for them. I just ordered one so I have another back up.

fishyflush 11-26-2012 04:37 AM

Mine just went through just fine

lagvoid 11-26-2012 04:59 AM

worked for me as well. received confirmation email.

THANKS!

gergev 11-26-2012 05:35 AM

I put in wrong expiry date, hit submit and card did not go through. The payment webpage would not allow me to put in the number again. Solution is to hit the back button, or "change" email address, etc to take you back a page. You don't actually have to change anything. When you click the submit button, then the payment page will accept your credit card number again.
I can't believe they still overnight a sim cards for free. That's just a stupid waste.

spinj 11-26-2012 05:45 AM

Somehow did not work with my amex card, even though I see a pending charge there. However visa cc worked just fine. May be they blacklist my amex cc as I having using it for SIM cards several times in the past. SD effect !!

Zanthexter 11-26-2012 07:09 AM

Sigh, I wasn't able to purchase a hotspot the other day. I was able to purchase to regular SIMs. Now it won't let me buy two Micro ones. (I'm not sure which I need since I haven't settled on phones yet.)

VERY frustrating. Stupid survey thing popped up. Maybe my complaining to it will get them to fix their web site...but probably not.

I hope TMO clears their online blacklist once in awhile. I haven't ordered online from them in a couple of years, because of it. Even though I have pumped $$$ of business through them. Talk about paranoid, lol

Doesn't always give me errors, but this morning it sure is. Tried a couple of different cards with no go - one of them a card I used the last time for free SIMs with no problem. Maybe it's just that time of the month for T-mo.com.

MrHalliday 11-26-2012 09:06 AM

It always acts this way. :)

Maybe every month this $0 offer pops up,
it never works for me, later today the price will change
to 99 cents, and maybe it will work.

In a past life I did get a few for 99 cents,
and they come with $3+ of credit if you can use it...

For those of you getting errors: If you have ordered these in the past year, you will need a new address/phone number/email address. As soon as I shipped to my work, the order went through on the first try.

ordered 2, don't know what I am going to do with them!

First time got the same error that order cannot be processed. And then tried to use firefox with exact same information except different email address ( the email used previous is the same as in current T-mobile account). Now the order went through smoothly.

Hope that helps.

I have called the customer support and placed my order on a different name and different address with the rep on phone for three microsim kits.

If you want, you can call the customer support and place an order for upto 3 microsims even they are OOS online or having trouble in checkout

not sure if i understood your question. are you asking if both cards are unlocked? if only one of the cards is unlocked? or if only the micro can be used for any plan?

I think both types of cards can be used for their monthly prepaid plans. i've also heard that you could pop one of them in and activate it and transfer your number over (if you're an existing postpaid and want to go to prepaid). that's about all i know, hope someone with more expertise can help you out here.

um... these are t-mobile prepaid sim cards.

you can only use the sim cards your carrier gives you.
if you need a nano/micro one then you'll just have to cut your own.

right, like the others have said, the sim card is carrier specific.
the difference between the sizes of the sim cards only pertains to the phones that hold them, some will only allow micro sized while others allow for regular sized or the nano sized.

I cut one with a scissor using a template I found on the net. It came out okay, but is probably not for everyone.

As it turns out, the local TMobile corporate store has a sim cutter. The store manager bought one on his own, lol. Now that is a different kind of corporate employee. Rare among most companies these days, unfortunately.

tenwinecans 11-26-2012 07:53 PM

does T-Mobile have a limite of 2 prepaid SIM cards per person/address or not?

I ordered two this morning. An hour later, I tried to order two more, but it wouldn't let me order it.

Just tried again with the exact same name/address/phone# a few minutes ago(930pm)
and another went through just fine... :)

I gave up on this. Tried a bunch of times to order on site with IE, Chrome, Opera, and Firefox. Spent probably 30 minutes while browsing some other posts. Finally got to the point where it told me there was a problem with my order and to call. I called and got put on hold for 32 minutes. Was told I needed to talk to sales and got transfered to another queue. Hung up.

Me too. I tried to order another 2, but it didn't work. I guess it's only 2 per address.

Why is there such high demand for these? There is more interest then people just wanting to take their iphones on the prepaid plans?????

jzaman 11-26-2012 09:32 PM

When I try to add to cart on a windows pc, it won't so I did it on an IOS device and worked flawlessly.

it's free stuff. people go looney tunes for free stuff that many of us don't need. I guess it's the joy of partaking in a SD...

Iceboie 11-26-2012 09:34 PM

We're sorry. We can't process your order online.

Looks like dead.

myvoip07 11-26-2012 09:39 PM

Thanks. Tried refreshing at least 4 times this morning but no luck. Finally got 1 now :)

dealhunter9 11-26-2012 09:39 PM

Thanks OP!! Got one of each. Been waiting for this to test my iPhone 3GS eBay unlock. I messed up The last one I received as I threw away the activation code.

fritz7 11-26-2012 10:04 PM

On the phone with order verification. It's 3 SIMs max per household per 90 days.

Idiots, instead of coding the web site to say so, everyone is just getting the generic "we are having trouble with the CC/ debit card you entered...".

nottrollin 11-27-2012 02:40 AM

Anybody know how T-mobile ships if it's overnight? I got a confirmation that my order was shipped today with overnight shipping.I'm thinking FedEx will be here by 10:30 am and I have to be around to sign.Anyone know? Edit- Update if anyone cares; T-Mo did ship it overnight thru UPS.Got it this evening. Overnighting hundreds(?) of free SIM cards can't be cheap.

ZeroChaos 11-27-2012 01:54 PM

Where is the "Free" part?

I only see $6.99 - $6.00 = $0.99 + Free SH

Micro is also $0.99

xNico 11-27-2012 03:03 PM

Made my order yesterday..already got it today. Probably had a store close to my house :)

I've been a long time TMobile customer, really like the customer service and product.

As for its "Order Verification" department, they suck. At least you got a concrete reason for order rejection, as weak and lame as it is. Most people can't even get the time of day from those weasels. It's a nebulous department run from an offshore location. If an order runs afoul of their unwritten rules, it is totally dead.

BTW, you might be on their blacklist now. You really never want to be in a position to have talk to them. They're like the Agents in the Matrix :eek:

tenwinecans 11-27-2012 04:28 PM

2 of the 4 SIM cards that I ordered were delivered this afternoon... talking about fast free overnight shipping! :)

Is it normal that they have such short "shelf life" ??? both SIM cards say "Activate by 09/01/2015"

JuMpMaN6235 11-27-2012 04:32 PM

Dead.. Now its .99

BraVe_HeArT 11-27-2012 09:19 PM

Can I check to see if my phone is unlocked with this sim?

The free deal is over. It's still a good deal @ 99 cents for a back-up.

What 3 years isn't enough time to get your phone activated? Are holding out for the 2016 Galaxy S Five ?:lmao:

imjustme 11-27-2012 09:46 PM

Thanks OP. Now both at .99 cents yet still good if an extra is needed.

I got one of these last time they were free and use it to check unlocks I do on friends iPhones.

2016? I'm sure the Galaxy S Five will be out 2014. :) My Galaxy S3 already feels
somewhat outdated and boring... :(

ASU_FAN 11-27-2012 10:59 PM

I already have tmobile for my iphone. If I buy this will I be able to switch from my old sim even though this is a prepaid sim? I would hate for them to try and bump ip my tzones that is 5.99 to some new plan. They try and do that everytime I call in for something because they know I have the iphone!

Anyone have any luck switching out their old sim with tmobile?

Im in Phoenix and they just reafirmed here so 3g is live. Have some connectivity issues with the iphone data on the new 3G but I think it might be the sim.

SoulSniper 11-27-2012 11:07 PM

I never got a confirmation number or an email but I was charged for these micro sim cards? The screen did say "we are having trouble with the CC/ debit card you entered...". This is so weird. Is anyone facing similar problems. What is going on? I am getting charged for something thats free without even getting any confirmation or order #? HELP

Have you had, or do you have an acct. with T-mobile? I was reading on the thread for the T-mo hotspot,that they block current customers from buying "prepaid" products. They just don't tell you that outright, they give you error messages when trying to pay. Or ask bizarre security questions and deny you that way. fwiw

haydeno 11-27-2012 11:57 PM

add\remove you middle initial or mispell your name by a letter and use another cc if have error. usually works for me

wildta 11-28-2012 12:04 AM

In the UK the big 3 (O2, Orange and Vodafone) give these away for free. What a joke the US cellular companies are.

Thanks much for that tidbit.

I had (accidentally, didn't notice) ordered 2 regular size SIMs a couple weeks ago for my new Nexus 4 and I had just tried to order 2 of the (correct size) micro SIMs now.

It gave me the BS CC error message so I removed one of them from the cart after seeing your post and the order (for just 1 SIM, so 3 total for me in past 90 days) went right through.

shyam09 11-28-2012 11:41 AM

lol my cards were supposed to come in today, i check the order status and it's been shifted to monday :P
can't argue with free sim cards + free one - day shipping though

gkwong 11-28-2012 06:04 PM

where do you check order status?

mcb247 11-28-2012 08:25 PM

Activation card says an initial $3.34 value. I've got an unlocked phone- any thoughts as to whether it'd work travelling internationally? I'm sure the credit would be eaten up very quickly, but still...

http://wac.04c7.edgecastcdn.net/0...gRates.pdf
Seems only texts/MMS, not web acess would be allowed?

KoolMom 11-28-2012 08:38 PM

can't believe it, ordered 2 days ago, and it arrived yesterday! :D

It worked for text and voice in Germany.

dimagwala 12-06-2012 12:15 PM

It sucks. My address is not verified by tmobo, I ordered multiple items before from them. I called and she could not help it!!

megakimcheelove 12-09-2012 08:48 PM

I've read through this thread, but does anyone have definitive answer to the fake error message: "Sorry—we're having some trouble with the debit/credit card you provided."?

I have NOT ordered TMobile SIM cards in the past, so the 3 card limit wouldn't apply here. Very frustrating - anyone have a confirmed workaround to this?

phillie5o3 12-30-2012 08:34 AM

sorry if this is a stupid question,

but does this come with an activation code too? or is it just the sim card alone?

ultratumba 12-30-2012 02:15 PM

Anyone know what the best deal for an unlocked iphone4 is right now on prepaids? Im looking at forking over major dough of 99 cents for a microSIM, but want to know what other carriers have that might be of interest.
