T-Mobile Penny SIM Sale

In a continued effort to keep their position as the No. 1 prepaid carrier, T-Mobile is offering SIM cards for a penny from today through this weekend (8/24/14). Normally, SIM cards are around $10, so if you are looking to jump to T-Mobile or to simply try out their prepaid service, this would be a good chance. You can purchase a SIM on their website, using the promo code SIMDEAL to get the low price as well as free shipping. There is currently a limit of 3 SIMS per order and 5 SIMS in 30 days.

They have several different sizes of SIM cards including nano (for iPhone 5) and standard as well as some packages which include a ‘starter kit’ and others that are ‘SIM only.’ If you are wanting to use the SIM in a prepaid phone, be sure you get the ‘starter kit’ which will include an activation code necessary for prepaid phones. For broadband, I believe the ‘SIM only’ will work just fine.

I probably don’t need to say it, but be sure that your phone is GSM compatible and that it actually has a SIM card slot so you can use it. This page has a form you can use to decide what kind of SIM card you need and to confirm that your phone is able to work on T-Mobile’s network. If you used your phone on another carrier, be sure it’s unlocked. This article will help you figure out what to do if it’s a postpaid phone that you are using.
