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

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.

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.

Will SIM card work with non-branded but also non-US phone?

Is it possible to use the SIM card with a pre-paid plan with my HTC phone from Germany? The frequencies are ok, but I read here that the SIM card only works in branded phones, mine is not branded.

Sim card Activation

I want to buy a perpay SIM card and have it shipped to me outside the US. Once I receive it I want to activate the SImj card online before I arrive in the US so that I will have a working phone when the plane lands. Is this possible?

T-Mobile can not ship outside the USA. What would be advisable is to have it sent to a friend/family member within the US. They can activate it for you, so that it is ready when you get into the US.
