    Sim Card Expiration

    Do old sim cards, I suppose with any provider - bus specifically H2O in my case, ever expire?

    I may be considering the H2O $100/year plan for someone. I have some old (OLD!) H2O sim cards, would those still work? Checking through my old emails, I'm guessing the sims were ordered around 2013, 2014, or 2015.

    Just kind of curious if they'd work. Not entirely sure I'll sign this person up for the H2O plan, don't want to shell out $100 to purchase the plan and sim kit and then never use it.

    If they have 27 or higher in the 9th and 10th positions of the SIM ID (aka ICCID) and have never been activated they should still work.

    Suggest buy sim card only from Amazon. Search for "H2O sim card" and $1.99 price with ship by Amazon and sold by PureTalk (the parent company of H2O).

    Shouldn't the $100 plan come with a SIM kit if you order on the H2O website? When I order a 90 day $10 plan SIM kit on the site, it comes with a SIM. I activate it with the ActFast code online.
