Re: T-Mobile Monthly4G Plans

TD would I be able to do this with my Verizon ipad mini, only problem I have is tmobile will not give me a nano sim without signing up for phone plan.

But I want to sign up for the ($30 web special plan 4g monthly), also that plan is trying to sell me a phone first and I can't seem to bypass that.

Seems in Roselle, nj we get the 4g network.

Any help!

Thanks, Ken

You can either cut the micro SIM card down to nano SIM size manually using a cutting guide (I used this »www.airportal.de/nanosim/ template), or you can get a SIM cutting tool like: »www.ebay.com/itm/390514709602

I cut my iPad 2's AT&T SIM to nano using the template for my iPad mini and it works fine (didn't need to use sandpaper as some people suggest).

For the T-Mobile SIM, I'm waiting on my SIM cutting tool to arrive later this week, as I wanted to make sure I could use an adapter to get it back to MicroSIM size.

Here is the best cutter I found for sim cards
»www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009AU···_s00_i00

it does cuts to micro and nanno sim. I just bought once since I only had a micro cutter. I would get something like this and avoid trying to do it with scissors and a guide. These cutters pay for themselves pretty quickly.

I would also recommend these -
»www.amazon.com/iCoolkit-iPhone-S···im_cps_2

if you are trying to go back up from the nanno sim into micro or full size devices.

I'm in the same boat. I'm looking to grab the nano sim but for the $30 deal they want you to buy a phone. If you just pick up the SIM and come back to activate, is the $30 plan available?

Yep, just make sure you order the Monthly4G SIM card. The $30 plan was available when I punched in the activation code to start service after receiving the SIM.

edit: I purchased this one specifically: »prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prep···tion-Kit

Cool, that is the one I ordered and will receive tomorrow. Saving another $15 over straight talk will be welcome for this spare phone.

Thanks TD, that was about the only way it seems, now how did you go about signing up for the tmobile $30 web plan I see no way to get passed it trying to sell you a 4g phone first, what am I missing.

Again thanks for your help much appreciated, Ken

Just get the correct "activation kit" for $0.99, regular or micro sim. After you have it in your phone and start online activation, you can choose the $30 deal from the plan list. Basically you don't buy a pre-activated SIM. You only do that if it is coming with a phone.
