Please be advised, if you are ordering this and
1. porting a number from T Mobile and or
2. bringing your own device
you may not be able to active the SIM and or any plan online or even on the phone. You have to go into a corporate store (not a franchise store).

Its a pain in the behind. Their sim activation system is messed up beyond reason.

Huh? I've purchased these three times in the past year (to access AT&T OTA updates) and each time it arrived activated with provided phone number.

That said, this isn't a deal as much it is a loophole. GoPhone SIMs have always been available at this price when choosing the $.25 plan at checkout.

Definitely comes activated. I got one of these a few weeks ago just to upgrade my ZTE ZMax 2 firmware to Android 6.1. It came 2 day delivery.

I have a GoPhone which was successfully unlocked from a previous deal. I now use this on FreeedomPop's LTE service but would like to gain the latest OTA updates. If I buy this sim do I use the real IMEI info? (ie is there a risk that I could lose my unlock?) Do I need to add a balance to the sim for the 25c plan? Thank you.

Nice deal, great service.

No throttling or deprioritization to speak of, and AT&T's native network is incredibly reliable.

As someone who BOGO'd without problems, I can confirm this is bullcrap.

Not bad if you want to unlock your GoPhone.
Buy the SIM, buy $0.25 plan. Wait for 6 months. Request unlock code.

Do need for that if you put unlock request in as non-at&t customer!

From AT&T Go Phone website, chat rep said if sim is not user with 30 days, it'll be deactivated. Dunno if it's true or not. Wanted to buy a sim without paying almost nothing to park a number.

Can I use this in my unlocked AT&T Go Phone but using prepaid T-Mobile calling? or is the phone# tied to AT&T?

I have one of those SIM cards with $45 loaded in it from a previous deal. How do we pick the 25 cent deal? I saw the paper it came with and I think it said $45 and 60 a month plan.

Thanks
