    Basically, I wound up buying two iPad mini retinas (one wifi, one 4g unlocked, both 32GB) locally in the last week, so one is going to be sold. I settled on the wifi to keep as I really don't need the cellular capabilities of the other unit (that's what mah phone is for) and the 4g has higher resale value.

    Anyway, when I bought the 4g unit, the seller was also including his T-mobile SIM card activated with the 200mb of data free deal as he said he didn't plan on buying another cellular tablet and so it would be an added bonus. I tested it and indeed the cellular connection is working. My question to you all: I plan on selling this on eBay, would it be alright to include this activated SIM as part of the package or just remove it and hang onto it/destroy it? Is there a possibility that selling the SIM with it could blow back on me for any reason? Thanks.

    The SIM card is in the sellers name unless he transferred it into your name. Without that users login information, the SIM card will only be able to be used for the free 200MB a month and the new buyer will not be able to add any new data plan etc. (possibly may be able to transfer by talking to T-Mobile Customer Support). Since you can purchase a new SIM from T-Mobile Online for free it is easier just to sell it without a SIM.

    Yes, and currently the SIMs are free with FREESIM promo code.

    SIMs are only free with the purchase of a data plan. If you want just the SIM with the free data, you can use the promo code 'SIMDEAL' to get the SIM for $0.01.
