At any T-Mobile store or T-Mobile.com for $10 (somwtimes they have 99 cent or free sim specials). I got mine free from Apple when I bought my mini retina there.

I'm scared going to a store they will try to convince me to get other stuff. It's a nano sim right?

Yes, nano sim. Just order it from their website if you don't want to go in to the store.

the terms and wording says i can be charged for mb used and also a fee and that it may take 2 to 4 day to port my number. Are we sure this is the correct place to order a sim card. I just want a sim so i can get the 200mb no other fees or charges. just the free 200mb.
Yes, that is the correct link. The T-Mobile SIM cards work in the smart phones and tablets so the fine print covers all the possible uses.

Oh man. Now it's 10 bucks again
Just wait until it becomes free again.. I am also in the same boat.
Wow, the two of you are amazing. :rolleyes: I paid $10 for my T-Mo sim. I get 200MB free for life which is MORE than worth $10 and it's very possible as time goes by that the 200MB free won't be available for future customers.
Sheesh, give people the sun for free and they will still expect you to include the moon. :rolleyes:

I believe you can order three per customer. When you get you're SIM, put it in your iPad, power up turn off Wi-Fi, go to settings, cellular data, view account. Enter your data and you are set.

Now you can have 400mb free.

The steps listed above are correct. I did this on two Verizon iPads a few months ago.

Ugh they sending me three. What should I do with the other ones? And what steps.
Save the others for new iPads you don't have to activate them for several years.

The steps are: put the SIM in your iPad, power up turn off Wi-Fi, go to settings, cellular data, view account. Enter your data and you are set.

I bought 3 of the $ 0.99 sims. I'm activating all of them. If anyone wants the free for life 200MB the they should activate all their sims ASAP. T-mobile can cut that deal anytime so if you wait to activate it may not be a good idea.

Does T-Mobile not restrict each person (SSN) to one SIM? Or are you signing up each card in a different family members name?
