    Can ST Activation Kit SIMs be used to activate multiple phones?

    Hi! I have a ST Activation Kit that I used to activate my iPhone (using the smaller ATT SIM). Can the remaining ATT SIM, the two TMobile SIMs, and the Verizon card be used to activate other phones by other people?

    I think I heard that some of these cards are hard to come by and/or people could save some money buying from me rather than ST, but I certainly don't want to sell anyone a product that won't work.

    Yes they can. As long as they have a $45 service pin. I know i have handed out my extra sims to friends and family for activation. Worked just fine.

    I vote yes.

    A friend got one of these kits for the AT&T sim. He passed the TMO one to me and I was able to activate it just fine. This was about a year ago, FWIW.

    I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use the remaining SIM's except for maybe the 2 remaining AT&T SIM's. Do the remaining AT&T SIM's have a different SIM card number or are they the same number as the SIM you are using in your Iphone?

    Yes you are able to use the remaining spares. When you activate a sim, you are using the SIM card number (and a $45 pin card/some form of payment) to start the service.

    The other SIM cards are not affected since you only activated the one SIM card number.

    Exclamation Official word from StraightTalk

    Official word from StraightTalk is that all of the additional SIMs will work on other unlocked phones.
