T-Mobile gives away free SIM-card kits for compatible unlocked phones
If you want to migrate to T-Mobile, now you can do it for free, without the necessity to pay activation fees. Their prepaid SIM card kits usually sell for $10, but if you enter “NOVSIM” as a coupon code at the checkout stage, a person can get up to two SIM card kits for free. All you have to do is head to the T-Mobile site (use the source link at the bottom of the article), choose your preferred type of SIM-card, and voila - you're done.

Once it arrives via mail, you are ready to choose a plan and activate the SIM card. By the way shipping is free, too. There is a chance that you will experience the following error while trying to checkout: 

“Sorry. We're having some problems with your order. It looks like our Payment Processor couldn't be reached or might be down. Please try again or contact us so we may assist you with this order.“ 

If this happens to you, it is recommended to either try checking out again or call the provided phone number.

Yea, I tried 2 different CC & all I get is:
Sorry—we're having some trouble with the debit/credit card you provided. Please check to make sure you've correctly filled in all the required fields.

That sucks. Was able to successfully purchase my SIM on the first attempt. Though the order took a bit longer to process.

Proof: goo.gl/v5sXRI

I got that error message the first time, but I then clicked on Place Order again and it's successful. I used Google Chrome when I placed the order.

Their service is horrible at my work and at home. I found that my verizon iPhone 5s was unlocked and I decided to try out the service. From dropped calls to no internet connection it was a nightmare. Even my battery life took a hit and I had to put it in airplane mode. My slow as hell Droid X from 2010 on Verizon 3G was more reliable. I use my internet at home or at work so basically t-mobile is at the bottom of my list. That $30 play looked so good.

Deerfield IL for work and Round Lake IL for Home. Their coverage says that I should have decent service. It was so bad I think that if I had to call 911 I would have been dead already.

I added 2 to cart, and entered the promo code, but I don't see the option to choose what type of SIM card you want. Am I just missing it?

Yes but they charge a $35 activation fee for each line you activate.

Think of it as $35 for activation fee or $10 for sim-card. Think smart. haha
