T-Mobile Increases Price for SIM Starter Kit, Offers Promo Codes

t-mobile-sim-starter-kit
If you've been planning to buy a SIM card from T-Mobile, you might be surprised to find that they have raised the prices for both the prepaid and postpaid 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kits.

T-Mobile has managed to raise the price of their SIM Starter Kits in a stealthy manner and without any press releases. With the new changes, you can now get the SIM Starter Kit for $20 instead of the old price, $15.

It's been a while since T-Mobile raised the price of their SIM Starter Kit. The last time they increased the price was back in late 2014.

Although a $5 increase doesn't seem so bad, it still is a $5 extra from the old price. The good news though is that T-Mobile often offers its SIM Starter Kits on sale. Right now, they are running a good deal that will land you either a postpaid or prepaid SIM Starter Kit for free or a discounted price. Here are the promo codes that you can use:

  • SIMSALE - Free T-Mobile 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit with Simple Choice Plan (Postpaid)
  • SIMDEAL - Only $4.99 for a T-Mobile Prepaid 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit

There's no mention of until when these promo codes will be available. T-Mobile simply says that they are available for a limited time period so make sure you check on their website before you make your 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit purchase to verify if the promotion is still available.

    3. You can get a sim card for many carriers for less than $5 shipped. Often $1 or less especially online.

      T-mobile really is the *un* carrier. LOL!

    4. "T-mobile really is the *un* carrier. LOL!"

      Truth in advertising, for once, from a company that typically advertises twice as much coverage as it actually has (to try to fool people into thinking it runs with AT&T and Verizon, instead of with its twin Sprint).

  3. What,A 25% increased "doesn't seen so bad" on an already insanely overpriced SIM Kit! Really? Wait till Dennis hears about this and see what he thinks about it.

    2. $5 increase since 2014. would you prefer it increased every year?

      Delete
  4. Because it can. Consider it a form of activation fee.

  5. This is the kind of crap that shows the true colors of a Service Provider. These are simple SIMs that should purchased with no immediate requirement to activate a device. This is where GSM was significantly better than CDMA and T-Mobile has just thrown that benefit out the window with these pre-activated SIMs.
    If I were to switch to the T-Mobile Network, T-Mobile Post or Pre-paid would be my last choice.

    1. The SIMs do cost money to produce, register, distribute, and manage. They aren't free so people don't hoard them (because you know you would.) And we are a capitalist society where companies have to make money to pay their employees, survive, and grow.

    2. When I purchased mine a while back I was limited to 3 SIMs, hardly frigging hoarding and they have a drop dead date printed on them.
      Unscrupulous to pre-activate, you should at least have the "choice" and it seems T-Mobile decided to pre-activate without even telling the buyer they a had done so.
      T-Mobile not giving you the choice is monopolistic unto themselves, certainly capitalist, but far from anything resembling a free market approach on their part, but I will exercise mine as I said, they will be the last resort.

    1. Get a T-Mobile Kyocera Rally phone at Best Buy for $4. Comes with a micro SIM.

      Delete
    2. Can't you just setup a Google voice number and port that number over to Boost or any other service provider to get the promo?

      Delete
    3. Can you use sim cards from New T-Mobile prepaid phones completely separate from the phone? (specifically referring to the ones that come with activation codes)

      Delete
    4. Where is the tribute being offered for free?

      Delete
    5. I need service also (pay as you go is preferred so that I dont need to pay for 1 month service)..

      Google voice port out, I guess, I need to pay $15-$20..

      Delete
  7. I've had Tmobile reps tell me in-store that they are a defacto "activation fee."

  8. I stocked up on tmo sims simply to export to cricket for $50 port in fees.

    1. Age you are precisely why T-Mobile is raising prices and crippling these things. Being cheap might come back to bite you some day.

      Delete
  9. It probably costs more to ship then, stop whining and go market your own sim cards.

    ReplyDelete
  10. They are pre activated which is useless. I bought 3 of them last month and all was pre activated. I end up throw them away. I would only buy them if they came unactivated.

  11. Aren't they still free for the asking at the Apple Store?

    1. What is still free? This is about Tmobile sim card not anything free in the apple store.

  14. Miiwireless $19.99 unlimited t&t and 2 gigs of data with latest smartphone included, what's the catch?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No catch if you want what they offer but "latest" doesn't mean latest flagship. For all we know, it could be like RingPlus or FreedomPop but $20/month instead of free. Paying $10/GB isn't bad but it's nothing to write home about either, especially on Sprint.
