    There's no free slow international roaming with T-Mobile Prepaid plans, only postpaid.
    Compare prepaid plans from all operators at PrepaidCompare.net.

    I just read elsewhere that Tmobile won't activate a phone with this sim.

    You probably have to ask a rep about if you can retain your phone number.

    But why not create a new plan/account for the data plan and port your existing number to Google voice or some other free service?
    I'm seeing it works in a phone and seeing it doesn't work in a phone. It's come up in this general prepaid thread. Maybe you can weigh with more detail? I want to put it on a phone that I am mainly on wifi with but get a couple of GB for use off wifi and use GV beta or Hangouts.

    I used my $10 2GB plan in a Metro Moto E5 plus with no problems.

    Thanks. I'm convinced the couple of people saying it doesn't are an aberration.

    Signed up for this on Dec 31. They said the sim would ship that day. I received an order confirmation number. I was charged instantly. They gave me a phone number that would be associated with the account. I set up a pin number. The system instantly recognized both the phone number and pin number.

    Status - no sim received.

    I call and ask where the sim is? Looking for a tracking number.

    They keep asking me for a phone number so they can activate the sim. No one there appears to speak/understand English. I am not their target customer.

    Tmobile reps after 1 hour on the phone now say ordered was canceled. Yet they billed me. No email telling me the order was placed or canceled.

    Now I remember why I stopped dealing with Tmobile.

    Yeah, sadly there's a night and day difference between the T-Mo's (excellent) postpaid and (utter crap) prepaid customer service departments. I've been with T-Mo almost two decades now (since the "Voicestream" days) so whenever I get crappy CS on the prepaid side, I can call postpaid CS and tell them to find someone to light a fire under someone's a** on the prepaid side for me and get my issue fixed.

    They told me in broken English that the order was placed through an 'old system' or a 'new system'. So I ask them to redo the order and set it up for me correctly and the response was that I should go to a store. I could barely understand a word they were saying.

    Chat support would at least allow me to see what they believe they are saying and to document it at my end.
