    Old prepaid SIM activation kit

    Just posting a question here. Why do the older SIM cards have expiration dates? I had an old kit lying around and wanted/needed to start a new line and it is no go. Do the current ones also expire?

    I have a few old ones laying around, too, from when they were on sale for $1. So you're saying that it did expire?

    In my experience, they have the expiration date printed on the package somewhere in fine print and also on the larger portion of the card which holds the SIM card.
    As for why they expire, technology changes plus they want you to use them and/or they want to sell you a new one.
