T-Mobile SIM Starter Kit Now Priced at $25

t-mobile-sim-starter-kit
Earlier today, it was reported that the price of a T-Mobile SIM Starter Kit has gone up. The price increase applies to both the prepaid and postpaid SIM Starter Kits, which now cost $25 each. An increase of $5 has been added from the previous $20 price tag. The last time T-Mobile increased the price of the SIM Starter Kit was a year ago.

For postpaid customers, the T-Mobile SIM Starter Kit comes in a 3-in-1 package complete with a Nano SIM card with a Micro and Standard SIM adapter. It can be used directly with an unlocked and compatible GSM device since no SIM card activation is required. The same 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit is available for T-Mobile prepaid customers. However, customers will still need to activate the SIM once they receive it in their mail.

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a $15 instant discount on the prepaid SIM Starter Kit. This price doesn't include tax and applicable shipping charges yet.

As it stands, today is also the first day of the free line promo T-Mobile had previously announced. The promo states that customers with at least two lines of voice service may add an extra line for free after bill credits. This line can be added as an extra voice line, tablet, smartwatch, or SyncUp Drive; depending on the customer's preference. To know more about this free line promo, check this article.

    2. I think Legere's blood runs only one color, magenta. That might be the only thing he has in common with Klingons.

      Well, that and the attitude.

  4. What is going on that they are raising the kit prices? How will that be competative? Is every carrier to raise their kit prices?

    1. This is how the world works. These companies have to make money to pay for their massive network investments; they are not charities. If they lower plan prices, they try to raise revenue elsewhere.
      Why does Cricket have 8 junk fees? They help pay for low plan prices.

      Tell that to all the hipsters in Mom's basement who whine that cell service should be free.

      "Why does Cricket have 8 junk fees? They help pay for low plan prices."

      You have to be a junk person to pay these. I've been with Cricket for a couple of years and have never paid one of them.

  7. T-Mobile is overpriced everything. They are expensive than Verizon with poor coverage.

    1. It sounds like you should switch to Verizon.

    2. Fact that I dont use Tmobile.

    3. Obviously. You are spreading the old myth of "poor coverage." You haven't kept up. T-Mobile plans include free voice and text roaming. Plus, plans $40 and up include some data roaming.

      Delete
    4. The poor coverage is still a reality: T-Mobile is way behind AT&T and Verizon is this most important aspect. The difference between T-Mobile and Sprint is that T-Mobile IS improving, and hopefully will no longer have poor coverage in a few years.

      "T-Mobile plans include free voice and text roaming"

      Which is great if it is 2005. But this is the data era, sorry.

      "Plus, plans $40 and up include some data roaming."

      But the amount included is very very little, as to hardly count.

      Delete
    5. "The poor coverage is still a reality" That's just your opinion. I think the improved coverage is good now, twice the Sprint LTE coverage. But you should still update your bot attack post - it is out of date and misleading.

      Delete
    6. An opinion, but an informed one that matches the experience of a vast majority of Americans.

      The coverage is a lot better than it was with T-Mobile, but even their proposed end of 2017 map a leaves a huge amount of large and tiny holes from coast to coast.... most of which Verizon and AT&T do not have since they filled them years ago.

      "I think the improved coverage is good now, twice the Sprint LTE coverage."

      T-Mobile is much better than Sprint now, but to refer to LTE only is misleading: compare native coverage. period.

      "But you should still update your bot attack post - it is out of date and misleading."

      It's a fact post, not attack post. And it is quite up to date, as you can see. However, I am sticking to the reality of T-Mobile's "now better, but still poor" coverage, and refuse to pretend it is better than it is.

      I hope it is truly good in a couple of years.

      Delete
    7. "I think the improved coverage is good now, twice the Sprint LTE coverage."

      And that's an opinion as well.

      But when you're arguing you're twice as better than the worst, does that really make you good?

      Delete
    8. "An opinion, but an informed one that matches the experience of a vast majority of Americans."
      What a load. All you have done, apparently is view coverage maps and assume the "vast majority of Americans" go EVERYWHERE in the US. Bizarre.
      As for "poor coverage," 314M people are within T-Mobile's new coverage where they live, work and play. As compared to "only" 308M for AT&T prepaid service.

      Everybody can read coverage maps for themselves, and pick what they need; they don't need other people to lecture that certain coverage is "poor."

  8. Can you not purchase a sim on tmo like one of the following and activate your account there?

    1. The first one appears to be a SIM without the activation code needed for activating on prepaid.

      The second listing is for T-Mobile Prepaid SIMs preloaded with a month of service. Those could be used to start T-Mobile prepaid service.

      Delete
    2. So we can just use the second posting to start an account, get one month free.
      Its as if we are getting a free sim card and a discount on the first month.

      Why not?

  9. Just got free data (200mb/mo) for life on my tablet. Glad I got it done and avoided the $5 extra fee. Can't imagine why people go for TMo's lousy coverage and prices just as expensive as ATT/Cricket/H2O.

    1. Where did you get free for life 200 MB data?

      Freedompop?

      Delete
    2. This is confusing T-Mobile is the only major carrier to offer 200mb o ffree data "for life" on a tablet. There is and never was a $5 fee, unless you are equating the price of a SIM card with a fee. Needless to say, if you "can't imagine why people go for TMo's lousy coverage and prices" why did you sign up for their free data?

      What's more, T-Mobile still offers the $10 for 5gb of data for 150 days (or until used) for tablets. There's no way AT&T/Cricket/H2O is doing that.

      Delete
    3. Anthony, can you tell us how to get this $10 5GB MI plan? If you're talking about "Data Match" it is 1) now grandathered, if it even exists and, 2) requires an active postpaid phone line.

      Delete
    4. I'm curious about that plan too. All I found was a HoFo post from Jan 2016. I cannot switch to this or buy a data pass for this in MyT-Mobile account.

      Delete
  10. Now that T-Mobile haa raised prices, are there any other prepaid services that allow you to port in without funding the account?

    ReplyDelete
  11. https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-9700

    Things to keep in mind:
    Free Data for Life can only be used on that specific tablet.
    If your tablet can be used to make voice calls, the Free Data for Life program isn't available for your device.

    But all tablets can make calls via google voice or whats app.

    Also, if that tablet is able to accept a sim card for the FDFL, free data for life, then how is it a ta let that cannot make calls?

    1. T-Mobile means that tablets with regular circuit switched cellular voice capacity are not eligible for FDFL.

      VoIP apps like WhatsApp or Hangouts only require a data connection and do not use cellular voice

      Delete
  12. GoPhone will do a "direct port," in-store, and not fund it for about 21 days. Calling it during this period just results in a "The number you are calling is not reachable" message.

    1. If you plan on using these preloaded sims for porting, then first see in the description if that is allowed.
