    I bought a group of tmobile prepaid activation kits. that were all supposed to come with $3.34 prepaid credit on it. Well only some did and most didn't. I only paid $6 per kit but now the cards with $0 balance looks like I will have to buy $10 credit to get any minutes on them. I only need a couple dollars for the text message to credit the pva when ever i need. Do you guys know any workaround to only purchase a couple dollars instead of having to pay $10 for each of these that I only paid $6 for the whole kit?

    Hey buddy,

    You can try to get some SIM Cards from your local ebay or from some classified sites, because they will cost you less than new ones.

    Sometimes you can find their also some top up voucher (dont know how its called in english). Some people buy them for the false mobile carrier and they dont need it and sell it for half the price. A $10 voucher for $5 or less.

    you are using wrong activations method to get promotional talktime.

    must have used same email/phone/online account for bulk activation.

    this is what happens normally with H2o cards too. they gives zero balance if we use same online account for more than 3 activations.

    I have 1 phone. Bought multiple SIM cards for the same phone. Only using them to create pvas. It costs $6 for a tmobile SIM card with $3 on the card as an activation kit. I bought them on amazon. The problem is that he sent some cards without the $3 credit which means those cards are pretty much usually since it costs $10 to buy minimum minutes or $6 for a whole new kit. I'm upset that I wasted money on a seller that didn't send what his listing says. But if I can find a way to add minutes to that phone for less that $6 then that would be better. That's my question. Any methods to add like $2 worth of minutes

    $T2eC16R,!)cE9s4PtHz-BQuPzrNHOw~~60_35.JPG 51GGTNAjXiL._SX300_.jpg Maybe this will explain better. You see these two images? One kit comes with $3.34 credit. 1 doesn't. Ordered a bunch of the ones that comes with the $3.34 credit but they ended up sending some with the credit and some without.

    The biggest issue is that I only need the card to receive 1 maybe 2 text messages total. To create a Phone Verified Account for a classified site.

    So now the cards that didn't come with the $3 credit I am stuck with the only option of added $10 to them to use them. I hate spend $10 for 1 text message. But I also hate that I wasted $6 on the ones that didn't come with the credit like it was supposed to.

    So I was wondering if any one new of a way to add a little bit of credit instead of $10 so I can still use those.

    As far as activation, that is not the issue. The all activate just fine. Just need a small amount of credit to receive a text to verify an account

    Ok got your problem now. You can still contact the seller from ebay and tell him you got some SIM cards without credit and contact ebay if he dont responds.

    I dont know why you cant use the SIM cards for craiglist or youtube because the phone verification dont cost anything. You dont need any credit for this.

    Yes, I have but haven't heard back yet :(
    The thought behind the sims were so I could reverify if I needed too. Buy your username I am guessing you supply pvas. Pm your details and sales pitch, I might try that route instead
