T-Mobile SIM Kit for Blackberry Z10

Is the T-Mobile SIM Kit available in a Micro SIM format? Blackberry Z10 utilizes a micro SIM slot.

On the back of the package it says, "Got the wrong SIM size? Visit a T-Mobile retail store or call the T-Mobile Information Line at 1-800-TMOBILE (1-800-866-2453) for a replacement." Or, if your Z10 is purchased "for T-Mobile", then it may come with a SIM that will work (it did for my Moto X).

My mistake, they will add $30 of balance to your account, but within 24 hours after your activation. So yes this kit will come with the money to start your first $30/Unlimited plan.

Having purchased this Kit, mine didn't come with the 100 Minutes, only the Activation Code and Micro-Sim.

I'm assuming it was $30 for the Activation fees, and $10 for the included Sim Card.

It includes $30 credit, which you can redeem for your first monthly of the plan you describe or apply it towards another plan.

Today I was successful (after numerous calls, tweets, and emails to T-Mobile Customer Service) with getting my iPhone 5s activated. I'd bought mine from the Apple Store online for T-Mobile, unlocked. What's needed from this kit is the activation number (which in my case, T-Mobile actually activate this plan I was switching to without my telling them this #). The microSim in the kit and its number are *not* needed. I ultimately only got to use my phone as a phone when a T-Mobile tech support person got me to get the nanoSIM out of my phone and read off to her (with help from a strong magnifying glass!) *its* number. The actually porting of my old number (from another T-Mobile "dumb" phone only took 2 hrs. Two different T-Mobile customer service reps had both asked me *only* for the kit's microSIM # and that's what had been activated 6 hrs. before I talked to their troubleshooting rep. That's when I found out they needed my (very, very tiny) nanoSIM that came from Apple with the phone. Once I told the rep that #, she had my phone working in seconds(!) Note: the standard phone number to reach T-Mobile voicemail system has *no* choice for customer service or easily reaching a person. I'd been a very happy T-Mobile customer for 8+ years and only this procedure for this phone and plan was full of hoops to jump through until success.

I just got an iPhone 5s a few days ago, unlocked, for T-Mobile, direct from Apple. I'd researched and found that for my needs (having WiFi at home and work most of my day, needing data more than phone minutes) this would be the best plan (and quite a bit cheaper than other plans incl. directly from T-Mobile). Right now as of 10/13/13, the most recent review, dated 6/9/13 is asking about using this with an iPhone 5s. That reviewer lists how to make this work despite the fact that the microSIM included won't fit an iPhone 5s. (Note the fine print from the Walmart page here, a pop-up, that they only list iPhone 4 or 4s. :-( I had called T-Mobile's Customer Service days before my iPhone arrived, asked them if it would be possible for me to use this plan with my iPhone , porting my 9 yrs. long cell number with T-Mobile and was told yes, possible and easy to do. Not true. I spent 2.5 hrs. last Friday at my T-Mobile store and a rep. He called T-Mobile 2x, I called them 2x and we got conflicting answers as to whether this could work (and how). So my iPhone 5s is still not activated. :-( So I'm glad for the hope I got today reading the most recent review I mentioned. I couldn't buy this kit in my town, but tomorrow I drive 3+ hrs. roundtrip to the next nearest Walmart store since our local one is sold out of this kit, won't get them for another 2 wks.(!) :-( The card in this kit is a microSIM, not the nanoSIM my iPhone 5s came with from Apple, but the recent review said the card from this kit isn't needed, but the # of it *is* needed...

According to Apple, Any GSM iPhone 5 model A1428 will support T-Mobile's LTE network and HSPA+ speeds of up to 21 Mbps. To experience DC-HSDPA up to 42 Mbps on T-Mobile, you need an iPhone 5 GSM model that supports T-Mobile's AWS band (1700/2100). Google search HT5720 to read more.

If you bought your Nexus 5 from Google, then it should be unlocked. This would work fine for you. Nexus 5 uses micro-SIM, which is the only size this Kit comes with.

The SIM Kit will give you a new SIM card that identifies your phone as yours and allows you to use the phone month to month without a contract. You go online to Tmobile and set it up. If your phone doesn't take the micro size SIM, they sell adapters to make it work.

Lance, while my phone is a Samsung, the Nokia 710 should take the same SIM and work fine. However, you need to have the phone department at the Walmart where you purchase/pickup the card activate the SIM card with a code inside the kit (next to the SIM) as well as enter the activation code for the program.
