T-Mobile Prepaid SIM Card

T-Mobile’s prepaid SIM card costs $49.99 and gives you unlimited high-speed data, calls, and text messages on T-Mobile’s network. The SIM card is meant for cell phones only, which means it won’t work on Mobile WiFi Hotspot (Pocket WiFi). Because the SIM card has three pre-cut sizes, it’s compatible with all modern smartphones. Just keep in mind that it may take T-Mobile up to 24 hours to activate it, so don’t buy it at the very last minute.
