    I am pretty clueless about sim cards, so I have a few questions. My actual phone is a Sprint iPhone 6, so I know they require nano sim cards.

    Where do people buy their nano sim cards?
    How much should I expect to pay for a lot of 25 or 50 nano sim cards?
    Would it be cheaper to buy a shitty phone and 25 or 50 normal sim cards?
    Do I need to buy them preloaded with phone plans or anything?

    Thanks in advance for any tips!!

    If you are looking to phone verify accounts it may be cheaper to use the Burner app on the appstore. It's like $2 for 3 numbers and its easier to manage.

    Keep in mind that if you are using sprint, these phones are slightly different than normal iphones. You can ONLY use sprint sim cards with them and the phones cannot properly be unlocked. There is options around this, like for example R-sim, however these solutions do not work very well and are expensive.

    You can find sprint sim cards for like $11 on ebay, but i'm not sure what prepaid options they offer. Perhaps a better solution would be to purchase a new, cheap unlocked android phone.

    Most those burner apps, the numbers are blocked. You can't use those numbers to verify facebook, ig, snapchat, ect. All those big companies signed a deal with telesign. Where they can determine what numbers are virtual and real aka sim card attached.

    How long do you keep the number for? I'm asking in case I need to re-verify a Facebook account again...
