99¢ T-Mobile Prepaid SIMs Are Back

T-Mobile has put Prepaid SIMs on sale for 99¢ with free shipping on the T-Mobile Website The regular price is $10. The 99¢ price is good through Thursday 2/6.

There are two types of 99¢ prepaid SIMs.

Prepaid SIM Activation Kits which are for phones only. They contain a SIM and an activation code and can be used to activate a phone on any T-Mobile prepaid plan. SIM Activation Kits are available in mini(aka regular), micro and nano sizes.

Prepaid Mobile Broadband SIMs work in tablets and mobile broadband devices only. They are also available in minimicro and nano sizes. These can be used to activate a supported tablet on any plan including T-Mobile's 200 MB/month free plan.

I like to keep a spare T-Mobile SIM or two on hand to activate on the $30 100 minutes, 5 GB plan when I need lots of data while traveling. That plan is only available to new activations using a new SIM.

  1. Tmobile will let you use a tablet SIM with a phone plan, and vice-versa. Just call Customer Service and they will move the SIM serial number to the correct database.

    1. You can definitely activate the phone SIMs on mobile broadband plans but I don't think it works the other way around. Mobile broadband SIMs don't come with the prepaid activation codes that are required to activate a prepaid phone plan.

    2. You are right, you still need an activation code, but you can use any unused code. The mobile broadband SIM can be used on a phone plan if you call CS to activate it and provide an active code.

    can I activate that plan with one of the .99 cent sim cards?
