    Dual Sim

    What is a dual sim? Would this item work in a BYOP GSM phone?

    it's a sim that is both micro & nano size sim.
    you just punch out the sim car size your phone takes.

    You have those TF BYOP SIM Kits, don't you? The cards that say DUAL SIM have a micro SIM nested inside a standard (mini) SIM, you punch out the size you need.

    What being sold by this seller is a GSM DUAL SIM card that has 1200/1200/1200 and 1-yr of service. My guess is that the seller bought a TF bundle when it was on sale for around $50 or less, activated the phone to harvest the bundled units/days, then transfers to a BYOP DUAL SIM and sells it for $65 to make a small profit; probably makes some money selling the phone too.

    Does such a SIM exist? In a TF BYOP SIM Kit, I've only seen the DUAL SIM card that has a micro SIM inside a standard (mini) SIM; the nano SIM is on its own card.

    it's both standard & micro sized sim. the triple sim is what you are describing, it has standard - micro - & nano size - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tracfone-Tr...7V6:rk:27:pf:0

    But your previous post said a dual sim has micro and nano (not standard and micro), that's why I asked if such a thing exists.

    that was goof on my part, although there may be some as i don't see very
    many phones that take the standard size sim anymore.

    It's the same link that was posted in Post #1. A "live" link usually breaks when copied and pasted.

    One is loaded with 1-yr and 1200 in each bucket; the other is just a plain SIM.
