I have a AT&T sim card phone number is 702-465-2898

Activated 1st May 2013 with $25 250min/Unlimited txt/Unlimited Int txt + $25 data

I was told that it would still be active for at least a month with no activity.

You can add international calling to this card for $10 so you can call landlines back in NZ.

Sim card alone cost me $40 USD + tax.

Wanting $20 NZ including courier in NZ.

Will also have a T-mobile data only sim card at the end of May when it returns with my other Ipad.

The will last for 9 months with no activity. This card seemed to work pretty much everywhere from Las Vegas thru Los Angeles, San Diego (limited in Tijuana) and Waikiki Beach area.

Wanting $20 for this one as well same deal as the above - Note not available until the end of May/ Early June.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Did you buy the SIMs in the US or online before you want?

Did you get 3G on the T-Mobile SIM? I've heard mixed reports

ajobbins: Did you buy the SIMs in the US or online before you want?

I got them in the US the AT&T was from an authorised AT&T dealer.

The T-mobile was from a T-Mobile branded store.

I had "4G" from T-Mobile most placed, on the odd occasion it dropped to Edge but not often.

The speeds I was getting on 4G were around 5MB/S down and 2MB/S up, which was substantually better than the Iphone was getting and also the wired and wireless at all our hotels.

The only disclaimer for 4G on T-Mobile is that it only shows as 3G as Apple have not updated the carrier settings for T-mobile. But comparing the speeds it was 4G compared to dissallowing 4G and being on 3G.

4G is confusing in the US, it's what we call 3G (personally I call it 3.5G)

Our 4G is their LTE

populism, the most important and misunderstood movement of our time
