Do you have a SIM card?

What Mobile Provider is this SIM from?

Customer Replay

T mobile


The most common way to activate a T-Mobile SIM card is with your phone itself. It’s easy to do, and you’ll have to follow these steps:
Insert your SIM card into your phone while it is powered off.
Turn your phone on.
Follow the on-screen setup prompts.
Call 1-800-T-MOBILE to complete the process.

OK thanks

You may have to provide your phone’s IMEI number and the number printed on the SIM card to the customer service representative for them to complete the process.
