T-Mobile Retail Stores Receiving Shipments of MicroSIM Cards, Unlocked iPhone 4 Owners Take Note

Once again T-Mobile retail stores are receiving small shipments of MicroSIM cards to be used for non-T-Mobile devices, likely the iPhone 4. Each retail location will receive ten MicroSIM cards and they are $9.99 as a replacement SIM or free if activated with a new purchase. Of course you can always purchase the MicroSIM through T-Mobile.com just in case your local retail store sells out. iPhone 4 users should of course take note that 3G is not available through T-Mobile due to the different frequencies between AT&T and T-Mobile. In any case, MicroSIM’s are available at your local retail stores, so now you know.

    good news MicroSim+iphone4 = edge speed…. lol

  • None

    I believe that UK phones use micro as well in many cases.  So if you choose a feature phone (or data phone on turtle speeds), you would likely need a micro.

    iPhone 5 on T-Mobile?  Please?  Pretty please.

    • Chatter

      That would rock! The Verizon version has all U.S. bands so all we need is for a similar chipset to be used in iP5.

      Too bad that will never happen….

        It might be more likely than you think. If they can squeeze the radio into it to handle our bands, Apple would be silly not to offer it. Now that the exclusivity with AT&T is over, they’re free to branch out into the T-Mobile market.

        • Mopar6464

          Also if Apple released the i5 with TMO bands just think how many people would sign up a new two year contract to get the iphone.
          That would help retain a lot of TMO customers for AT&T’s acquisition.

    Will be grabbing me one to slap into my Greatastic Nokia N9. :D

    • Fred Flintstone

      Get me one to babe while your out

      I read that the N9 will not be sold in the US. Hope it doesn’t cost you too much $$$ to buy it online.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        The US wasn’t on the list of countries that would be getting it unfortunately (Thank Balmer, Pole/Elop and crew at Nokrisoft for that).  I’ll have to import it.  Thanks, I hope not as well.  I mean I really like Meego but I’m not paying ridiculous prices for it.  I’ll just get a Hercules or Optimus 3D (BTW, would an unlocked Optimus 3D work on Tmobile’s HSPA+ frequencies?  I see it has the 1700mhz band which I believe is Tmo’s 3G band.  But would it work on HSPA+?) and get a custom Rom of Meego on it.  If it’s not one already, I’ll make it myself.  I’m a programmer after all. :D

        • Chatter

          Good questions but I am *guessing* that if the 3G bands are present, you are ok. Also try to find a korean friend. There are some korean sites like xda with nokia roms. You can get english versions but all instructions are in korean.

      I won’t be grabbing one for the iPhone 5 since i’m going leave t-mobile. lol

      • Wilma Flintstone

        I’m on the fence right now.  I’ve been out of contract for a long time and am waiting to see what happens with this merger before I decide.

          Yeah my svc is getting worse as well. losing signal every 20 minutes.  Who’d you decide to go with and how much is their unlimited everything plan? I’m paying $100/mo now on Tmobile

        • Anonymous

          Where are you located? I’m in the Bay Area, and before the AT&T deal, Svc was well (been with t-mo since 2007), but now I barely get 3g at home (before I used to – i live in the suburbs) and when commuting to work, I now experience 3G/E/G oppose to before I get 3G & E at times… so it’s getting worse for me.

          My main pick is Verizon but it’s going cost me 180 a month for 3 lines (iphone) for 700mins/2gb data, Sprint would cost me the same but with 1400mins and unlimited everything (but Sprint doesn’t seem to hold well here… my boss has sprint and when I talked to him on the phone, he sounds like he’s talking thru a tin can lol) or AT&T which I don’t think I want to be with them.

          I only need around 700mins since now I have with t-mobile: 700mins myfave family w/ 3 lines and unlimited data/text on one line which cost 120 after tax.

          I don’t know where I’m going to head to but Verizon seems to have coverage everywhere which is pretty important to me especially when traveling.

          I just switched from T-Mobile to Sprint. I’m happy with Sprint! It’s cheap, and they have good customer service! Only complaint is that there 3G is slower than T-Mobile’s, but 4G is really fast.

          Lol , that’s the same experience i get from my Nascar racing buddies at the track who uses Sprint also.
          Sounds like their talking through a soup can or as you say “Tin Can”.
          Sprints call quality is the main reason i will not join Sprint no matter how cheap their plans are.
          What good is a cheap rate plan if the call always quality blows chunks.

          Verizon is SOOOO much more expensive!  And I don’t see an unlimited talk, text and data plan.  (Does anyone have a link to that?)

          We were AT&T, before T-Mobile.  I switched to T-Mobile 5 years or so ago cuz of the sucky connection problems, but my hubby wanted to hang on.  Eventually, he said “Never again with AT&T” after his third important work-related call got dropped.  He got his iPhone cracked and switched to T-Mobile with me – and he has been happy ever since.  Now that the potential AT&T merger is possible, he says we have to switch…  But Verizon is SOOOO much more costly.

          I had the same issue.  Call customer support and explain to them you don’t have one of the new 4G sim cards.  They will comp you a free sim card that you can pickup at a local store.  Fixed problems on the 3 phones we have.

          We don’t have 4g phones tho. Thanks for your advice tho, but I already plan to leave t-mobile so it’s cool.

    I left T-Mobile 3 months ago to Verizon. Was using a 3G and then a 3GS on T-Mobile for a year. worked fine just the Edge got REAL annoying after a while. It wasn’t worth it if you needed to use maps, youtube or search for something fast. Now T-Mobile can get the iPhone 5 or 4 and make it their 3G/4G freq, but I think the merger will happen. It’s supposed to happen this coming March. People would go with T-Mobile is they did get an iPhone just for their network but the merg would have to stop somehow. AT&T is trying really hard not for that to happen. Now I’m stuck with Verizon for the next 10 or 20 years because I don’t want to lose my ‘unlimited data’. I use about 8GB a month lol
