    A SIM card on the Red Pocket site costs around $10 but there are sellers out there who are selling them for as little as 17 cents with free shipping! And this is on the Amazon website. How can they do it? Should I be suspicious of something being wrong with them, like built in tracking or web ads to my phone?

    I have never used a device with a SIM card and don't know much about the manufacturing part of it. But considering the cards hold a lot of information I would suggest purchasing from a reputable retailer.

    Like any other sales, SIM resellers earn commissions and small residuals as long as you remain a customer. Consider it a loss-leader to build a stable base of residuals.

    I tried most of the GSM prepaid providers before settling on RedPocket. They provide good service, a good website and quick customer service by phone if necessary - that is huge when you are activating and reloading your sim. Had some bad experiences with others.

    Also be sure you are getting a SIM card in retail package (preferably sealed).

    The Actual COST to manufacture the SIM CARD is between $.07 and $1.... So The other $9 is profit and to pay for the DEVICE they use to PROGRAM Said Sim Card.... But mostly Profit!! Which is why VERIZON Did not CHARGE me when i upgraded from a normal Simcard to an ENHANCED Sim Card to use ISIS Mobile Wallet.. they Even Paid Shipping
