Re: how much do a sim card cost

The cost of a SIM card differs from place to place, but is usually between $15-$25.  You will also need to purchase airtime ($40 or $50 for a 30-day plan).  Once you have that, then you can activate your phone.  Most dealers will charge you to activate & program your device.  You can also do it yourself online pretty easily for free.  


You don't need an ID - no contracts, no ID, nothing to sign up for.

On ebay I purshased my Simple Mobile micro sim card for $0.99 with free shipping, sent by First Class Mail.

Sim cards cost the same.

Plan pin number are also available on eBay. Simple Mobile plans with a free sim or micro sim card are on eBay also.  

You can purchase together or apart, the sim cards and the plans. is great also.
