T-Mobile raises SIM starter kit price to $20; coupon code brings price down as low as $0
T-Mobile raised the price of its 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit for both postpaid and pre-paid accounts. Formerly $15, the kit is now priced at $20. For that price, you receive a nano SIM card with adapters for Micro and Standard SIM sizes. When you get your unlocked handset in the mail from T-Mobile, insert the SIM card into the compatible handset (making sure to use the appropriate adapters if required). Call T-Mobile and have the SIM card activated.

We can tell you that the nation's third largest carrier does have a couple of deals available that will take the price of the starter SIM card kit down to $0 for those with a postpaid account. If you are using a Simple Choice plan, enter the coupon code SIMSALE at check out, and the card is free. If you have a T-Mobile pre-paid account, enter coupon code SIMDEAL and you will be charged only $4.99.

The SIM cards work with unlocked GSM handsets that are compatible with Band II (1900 MHz) or IV (1700/2100 MHz). Phones that meet these qualifications will work on the T-Mobile network. In addition, the SIM cards will work with all T-Mobile branded phones. These 3-in-1, or TrioSIM cards, first rolled out last June.

We don't know how long the two coupon codes will be good for. Therefore, if you need to order the 3-in-1 SIM Starter Kit for your unlocked GSM or T-Mobile branded handset, it is in your best interest to do so now!

Most of you won't be knowing that in India we can buy SIM card for any carrier at just $0.50(about 30 INR.). And sometimes if you are lucky then you can get it for free.

In my country they offer it for free. Hell, even my 25GB LTE plan which I pay about $11 got upgraded to 50GB this month for free.

When you get your unlocked handset in the mail from T-Mobile, Alan Frank, please correct this, even though yes t mobile does sell unlocked phones (BlackBerry Classic comes to mind) this isn't what you meant to say, or is it?

Paying for a SIM card??? That's nuts! SIM cards in Portugal cost 5€. But they always come with a 5€ balance.

In U.K I haven't paid for a sim card since the 90s. Now you either get them free delivered to your door or maybe 50p in some stores.

I think this is based on the way tmobile operates. They encourage customers to bring their own phones so they make the sim cards free when you do. considering theyve been giving them away for free for so long now though i think they raised the prices just to break even.

They don't even charge you for them honestly has long as you are on a plan. I have walked into TM 3 times for a sim card and they flat out just handed it to me

Pretty much. Starter packs are more about new lines. This is good to make money from tourists and those that inexplicably need new phone numbers all the time. The phone numbers are more valuable than the sims.
