    Default Re: T mobile charge for Micro- Sim Card.

    The only time I got a sim card included was with my Nexus 7. That is because even though the Nexus 7 is unlocked, you still choose the carrier (just like an iPad) so that when you get the device, you can activate it with the carrier as soon as you get it.

    They could easily do that with the Nexus 4 but they don't.

    I had to pay for the 2gb add on $10/mo., CA sales tax, and $11.99 overnight shipping. Just got my snail mail bill today and no sim card charges. FWIW. I'm surprised that the prices and policies are not consistent in their corporate stores though.

    I wasn't charged anything at the at&t store for my SIM. I just asked the rep for one and he went to the back and got one, activated it, and sent me on my way. One of the best experiences I have ever had at a phone store.

    I so agree if it wasn't for the price and cell service is run,man you can talk to 2 online,2 on the phone and 2 in the store and you'll get 6 complete diff stories it happens every time

    Most dealers have one of these. I brought a SIM to a T-Mo store and the guy happily pulled out his tool and cut mine down to size. No charge

    You can find them on Amazon and lots of other places. Just search for 'sim cutter'.

    Anyone else that runs into this "problem" - check ebay for t mobile sims. Usually you can find them for even cheaper than the $10 t-mo charges for them online. To the OP - if you are a postpaid customer, I'm surprised the guy in the store tried to charge you for a sim card. That's pretty crappy. Even if you're prepaid, I'm surprised he didn't just stick it in a sim cutter for you. That's bad customer service.

    I am already on the prepaid $30/month 100 voice/unl. data "Walmart" plans. But I currently have an Iphone with a standard sim. If I order one of these starter sim kits from tmobile with a micro sim for my Nexus 4, and then bring it to a tmobile store, will they then transfer my number to the micro sim at no cost?

    Yes, but you have to choose that option during activation.

    After I receive the new micro SIM from TMO in the mail, do I NEED to go to a TMO store to get the number moved over from my old standard size SIM to the micro SIM, or can I call TMO to do it?

    You can try it online (or call). Just gave my nexus4 to my son who had his galaxy nexus on T-Mobile $30./100 talk plan. Instead of sending my card cutter, I'd purchased the micro sim when they we're $1. Unfortunately, he hit a snag but went to online chat and had it working almost immediately. He's getting 25dl/5ul--same as his cable internet.

    I use this tool, I didn't have to sand it down any further, this tool worked perfectly. The adapters also worked with my Gnex, just have to be careful install and removing it from the Gnex.
