    Reusing SIM Card

    A few weeks ago, I sold two unactivated Virgin Mobile iPhone 5s’s that I intended to use on ringplus, but then realized it would be difficult, if not impossible, use them there.

    It's a long story, but I ended up with extra SIM cards - the two Sim cards that shipped with the iPhones initially, as well as two more cards that were issued as replacements when I realized that I had left my buyers without the SIMs. I immediately requested replacement SIMs from VM, but then so did my buyers. I later found the original SIMs tucked under a flap in the original shipping box.

    Those phones now have been activated by the buyers. But I am left with four Sim cards that are of no use to me.

    So my question is, can these Sim cards be used in other phones without messing up the activation of the two phones for which they were intended? In other words, should I give these cards to someone who can use them, or just toss them in the trash?

    Thanks!

    Give them away ; no faul, no harm. The America Movil folks sometimes associate SIM cards with specific devices.

    I can probably find use for one. Would you like me to send a stamped envelope? PM me and I'll gladly do it!
