  1. Has anyone successfully ordered penny sim cards from T-Mobile more than once? I was able to order penny sim cards over a year ago but every time since then, including just now, T-mobile won't allow my order to go through.

    1. probably doesn't matter, but have you activated the previous sim cards? maybe it's now just a one-time only per customer and not for the repeat-sim-card-buying customer like not for dealers?

    2. The same thing happened to me. I ordered once and everytime I try again it doesn't go thru.

    3. Has anyone tried ordering with another credit card?

    4. I've ordered multiple times. However they do have some limits. There's a 3 SIM per order limit and there's a limit of 5 within a certain time period (a month I think, but I'm not sure about this). I don't know if they tie the limit to the address or credit card number (or both?).

      The worst thing is that when you go over the 5 SIM limit you get an error message that doesn't indicate anything about a 5 SIM limit - I think you get an error that sounds more like your card was declined or something.

      Anyway, if you bought some SIMs in the last 1¢ sale, then you might still be covered by the limitation time period since that was just last month.

    5. I ordered 3 sims in July and was just able to order again today (even though there were two sales since then that I tried to get in on).

  2. Same here. I was able to order about 3 times. Since then, over a year ago, I have not been able to order - even at the $10 price !!!

  3. So you can't activate on Post-Paid T-Mobile with this SIM?

    1. Actually you can. No activation code is required for postpaid and you can use any unactivated T-Mobile SIM. The prepaid SIMs are not Isis compatible if that matters to you.

    2. thanks. already have one of these sim cards that got because your notices here. put it in my iphone which just got unlocked and saw it can get tmobile LTE. big difference from a year ago when only 2G or the ocassional 3G. thanks again for your articles on these sim cards.

  6. I am the original anonymous poster. I was finally able to order with the help of online chat. The error message I was receiving stated there was a problem with my credit card which wasn't true. I tried changing my phone number, credit card and email address in the shopping cart which did not help. Clearing cookies did not help either. Online chat would never tell me what the problem was but I suspect I was blocked because I misplaced my .01 SIM cards from a year ago before I could activate them.

    I don't understand why SIM cards are cheap on Ebay for most carriers but not TMO nor MetroPCS? Thanks for your input.

    1. I suspect T-Mobile SIMs cost more on eBay because you need a new SIM to activate T-Mobile's 5GB $30 plan. I think MetroPCS SIMs are in demand because the service is only available in a few markets and MetroPCS won't ship phones or SIMs to addresses outside of the markets they serve.

    2. so you suspect it's really because you didn't activate your previous penny tmo sim cards because you lost them. sounds about right. you had them. you didn't activate them. no more tmo sim cards for you! lol

      but good thing you got online customer service to sell them to you.

      yeah, maybe next time buy them on amazon or ebay.

  7. I also tried to buy one and it won't go through. I tried different credit cards, phone numbers, my husband's name but it must be linked with the address. I did buy two activation kits/sims well over a year ago. I have since used one but haven't used the other. I will be porting my daughter to the $30 plan and need an activation kit.
