There is indeed an "activation" code in the kit. For my case, the activation code is not valid. It does not work.

Yes, it comes with the activation code and the SIM number. All you need is the IMEI number in the battery compartment of your phone.

Actually, the Micro-SIM card offered at http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/phones/Cell-Phone-Detail.aspx?cell-phone=T-Mobile-Micro-SIM-Card does NOT work with prepaid/no-contract plans.

If you DO want prepaid/no-contract, get this product and - as I've been advised in a chat with customer service on 22 June 2012 - use scissors(!) to cut this regular (Mini-) SIM down to Micro size.

If anyone at T-Mobile is reading this: PLEASE include this information in the product description.

answer 6
I was an AT&T customer when I switched from a iPhone 3GS, which uses a normal SIM card, to an iPhone 4, which uses a micro SIM. I went into the store to get a new SIM and they just took my regular SIM out of my 3GS, put it into a little press that they had at the counter which cut my regular SIM down to the size of a micro SIM, and put it into my 4. My iPhone 4 works just fine with a cut-up regular SIM.

Short form: Yes. However, some services (such as blackberry web) are not currently available on pay as you go. Feel free to contact customer care (611) to ask about what services you may want on prepaid before switching.

When you order the SIM card, it's not activated. As long as your account is still active (or suspended for lost/stolen) by T-Mobile, just give customer care (611) a call with the new SIM card number and ask them to update it on your account. This way you keep your old number.

Yes,. If you don't cancel your current service or it will you won't be able to use number portability. If you didn't cancel your service don't once the number portability is complete T-mobile will notify your former service provider to cancel it.
