Prepaid SIM cards must be registered before use. (sim card image by Renato Francia from

T-Mobile typically ships registered SIM cards when you sign up for a subscription plan. However, if you're a prepaid subscriber ordering online or by phone, you're out of luck on the automatic registration. However, it is still possible to register your SIM card for your T-Mobile-purchased phone, or an unlocked phone purchased elsewhere.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Access T-Mobile's SIM card registration website. (See "Resources.")

  2. 2

    Enter the information requested on the website, such as your name, number, SIM card number and prepaid plan.

  3. 3

    Click the "Activate Phone" button to register the SIM card.

  4. 4

    Insert the SIM card into your T-Mobile phone. The slot for the card is usually located in the battery compartment of the phone.
