    Anyway, the SIM in my E4: 8901 4104 xxxx yyyy
    890141 = AT&T. If your Moto E4 is Verizon Prepaid, there's no way that SIM came with the phone.

    Ok, so you have a TF/AT&T SIM. What do you want to do now? Might be best to take the 60 minute card route to push out the service time until deciding.

    Being the SIM has no tie to the E4, you can swap it to another GSM phone. There are currently no GSM TracFones, so a service transfer would be needed to use one of the CDMA bundle phones. Might loose TMFL.

    Um, came WITH the E4, not IN the E4. Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm confused now. The SIM came WITH the E4, not IN the E4? Did that 890141 SIM come in the E4's box, or bought separately?

    I would assume the SIM was bought at the same time as the E4 at Walmart. My local Walmarts only show the $9.88 3 carrier kit stocked in the stores. The single $0.99 kits have to be ordered. May vary by location.

    Apologies again. I have a stash of SIM cards. Now that I've looked at the stash, I realize that my SIM card in the E4 (as well as my wife's) came from TF itself - not with the E4 phones that I bought at Walmart.

    So again, what do you want to do with the activated TF/AT&T SIM? Upgrade the E4 maybe? It's still a pretty good phone.

    Just trying to find the best/most economical way to extend my end date (which happens in early October). I use my phone seldom.

    I like the E4 fine. (Of course, if a smashing bundle appeared . . .)
