    Hey all,

    So my 5S was recently blacklisted, etc, etc - that thread got detailed a bit BUT it's been sold and I have the trusty iPhone 4 to carry me until the iPhone 6 or whatever is announced. But the 5S has nano SIMs, compared to Micro in the 4 - besides buying a SIM converter, what can be done? Can I just walk into my T-Mobile store and ask for the right size?

    I do have a SIM activator kid, complete with micro SIM, from T-Mobile. Can I just use that SIM? Or is that only for new lines, etc?

    Thanks!

    T-Mo should give you a new SIM and activate it with no problems.

    Sorry for your loss.

    You should be able to activate the SIM in that kit. A SIM is a SIM. I'd highly recommend using the right size SIM instead of using an adapter.

    T-Mobile will charge $9.99 for a new SIM.

    if you have the micro sim kit, just log into your tmo account online and you can activate it online without leaving the store.

    works within mins. your nano will become inactive and your micro sim becomes active with your number

    Neither does Verizon. T-Mobile is selling their service so cheap and attracting a lot of BYOP customers... so I guess they feel justified in charging for SIM cards.
