    This only applies to iPads you already own. This has nothing to do with a financed iPad purchased from TMobile via their EIP.

    If you have an iPad that you want to get the free 200 MB/month here's where you can order a FREE SIM CARD from TMobile. You will have to enter in credit card information, even though the SIM card is free.

    All SIM cards are the same, regardless of what it's listed under (prepaid, postpaid, mobile internet, etc.) The activation process is what ties the SIM to a particular service.

    I ordered a free nano SIM from the link below a few weeks ago (just to have) and put it into my iPad Air (purchased from Apple) and activated the 200 MB/month free plan.

    FREE NANO SIM (iPad Air, iPad mini)
    FREE MICRO SIM (iPad 2, iPad 3rd gen, iPad 4th gen)

    Looks like they raised the prices to $10 per SIM now.

    :(

    it periodically goes back on sale from $0.00 to $0.99 from its original price of $10.

    I had been intending to order one since Friday when I decided to get my Air pre-configured with a different carrier. Your post reminded me and now it looks like you saved me $10. Thx :)

    Any idea how often the prices of the card changes?

    Varies, but seems like at least once every month or so they're available for cheap.

    Slickdeals.net is a good site to watch for such things.

    You can also ask your local Apple store for a SIM card. I got another tmobile SIM card that way.
