Question SIM Card

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased two T-Mobile 6710's on Ebay and need SIM cards for them. How do I know what I need to get? I see different types and just don't know.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure I understand your question... But it seems like you're looking at serveral types of SIM cards? If that is the case, there is only one kind of SIM card T-Mobile offers. I have used the same SIM card in a Motorola V600, Samsung 715 and BlackBerry 7100t.

You answered my question and didn't even know it. I just wanted to make sure if I bought a card on Ebay that it would work locally.
I don't think you would want to with the pre-paid cards, since they have a number attached to them.(I think)

I just want to buy a card and go down and turn on service to my 6710 without any problems.

You're right. Prepaid cards are from a totally different department in T-Mobile. So don't bother buying one.

You also cannot use e-mail or pin features on a pre-paid card. Just SMS and Phone, maybe limited WAP, but the browser would need to be enabled.
