Hi All,

Apple sent me an email saying i may have a defective SIM card. Received the package today.

No problems with my phone though and I used what came with my 6 Plus. although i did do a cross upgrade, but AT&T was able to activate it with no problems.

Anyone else here notified?

Apple sent you one..?
Wouldn't your carrier normally be the one taking care of that?

Really weird. Not sure what to do now....

If it actually shows up in the Apple order status page (go there manually; don't click the link in the email), I would assume it's not a phishing email.

I did that and it's there.

Anyway, just talked to AT&T and they said Apple might have had problems with a "batch" and was being proactive about it. Rep told me my current SIM is working properly and no need to switch, but hold on to the replacement just in case....

Go back through macrumors.com headlines.

This was reported on back in September.

Legit.
