T-Mobile begins selling microSIM cards for $9.99 - targets the iPhone 4 & iPad

T-Mobile begins selling microSIM cards for $9.99 - targets the iPhone 4 & iPad
T-Mobile customers who are gleaming with envy over the iPhone 4 and iPad can rest just a bit more easily now that the carrier is selling microSIM cards that target unlocked versions of the device. Rather than trying to cut existing SIM cards down to that size, these $9.99 microSIM cards absolutely removes the process from the equation.

Obviously, T-Mobile isn’t simply selling them because they want to, but they blatantly mention in the description that they’re ready to be used on unlock iPhones – or any other GSM phone accepting microSIM cards. Thinking about it more, it’s hard to see why anyone would want to pick up the card for free with a 2-year contract when it already boasts an acceptable retail price of $9.99. Well, maybe some plan to stick around with the carrier for 2 years?

Nevertheless, it’s just one less painstaking process for T-Mobile customers who dream of using any of Apple’s products with the carrier’s network – but be warned, you’ll be limited to EDGE speeds only.

"gleaming with envy"?
"on unlock iPhones"?
Need a proofreader?

And I think you need to buy the card if you don't want one of the contract plans. Maybe you need them when traveling for a week or so? I'm not wasting any more time on this. You figure it out.

there are over a million unlocked iphones on Tmobile already. Its a very common practice. It is only serving that segment. Those 3gs customers may want an iphone4 and not know how to cut down the sim properly.

Besides, If they activate that sim in store there is a 95% chance that they will make the sim free anyways.

Nokia N9 takes micro sim, and there is a magenta one and it supports T-Mobile 3G.

I think maybe i'll get one of these when i get my N9.
