Advertised on ebay as free internet for the year, even with no top up. Must be too good to be true.

Would i be correct ?

Isn't that why you join a forum, to ask advice/opinions ?

Most of the times when someone joins this forum it is indeed to gain advice and opinions. But mostly when they are new they tend to ask about the services which are available on here rather than post something and say its free for a year when in fact its 19.99.
You may be a genuine new member here and I welcome you onto this forum and hope you enjoy your stay here, but it just seemed a bit strange to me that a few mins after joining you would post about something which is on ebay and not something on this forum.

Just found a recent thread that you started concerning tmobile sims, i presume that this is where they have been sourced from. It could even be you that is selling them.

So.....thanks for the welcome, you could have pointed me in that direction.

I'm going to try my hand and buy one, and then get my free internet for the year.

So how many did you obtain from tmobile and is it working well ?

I don't think so mate as the one I posted about was a contract with minutes and texts and booster and it was a glitch on t mobile website, so these sim cards are NOT the same.
About how many I obtained from T mobile then I think you need to read my original post carefully.
I'm not the one who is selling them as I only found out from you.
I don't need to point you in any direction, I was only welcoming you onto this forum.
Go ahead and buy one and pay the 19.99 for the year, I don't know where you are getting  " free internet for the year" from.

Maybe you are one of the unlucky people who missed out on the T mobile deal which I posted. Wink

In all honesty, if the seller is legit, then I think its very good value, 1.66 per month for 500mb internet per month, you won't find better deal for internet as far as I'm aware.

It's worth mentioning T-Mobile blocks VOIP providers, ie Skype won't work...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/T-MOBILE-MICRO-SIM-CARD-PAYG-3G-IPAD-IPHONE-4-1-YEARS-FREE-INTERNET-/260883050538?pt=UK_Mobile_Home_Phones_Sim_Cards_CV&hash=item3cbdd7702a#ht_604wt_922

I don't know whether these are a scam or not, but one factor that you might like to weigh is that T-Mobile sell a package called "6 month's internet" for 20: I have never heard of them selling one year package, let alone them selling it for a penny less than the 6 month's one !        Roll Eyes

If you have placed an order I wish you good luck, but I am inclined to me very slightly sceptical myself.       Wink

Note: there is an offer of free internet for a year ( after a 10 topup ) from T-Mobile: see here
*BUT* that is only for the iPhone 4s or iPhone 4, and involved a micro SIM (although the Nokia N9 and the Lumia 800 should also be compatible, as well as the iPad 2).        Wink
This deal is available *exclusively from T-Mobile online.*        Wink

Just a catch up. Got the sim today.

Stuck it in the ipad and got a message saying your 12 months free internet is ready to use so am quite happy with it !  Smiley
