Only the SIM cards that were sold as prepaid activation kits that include time have activation codes that I am aware of. You can either stop by a store to activate it on a new prepaid account or purchase a SIM card activation kit for prepaid which will have instructions on activating online and a relevant code to activate it. A bare unused SIM card for post paid accounts will not have that information.

If you have an unused SIM and want to activate it, you should be able to do so at a retail location or by calling sales. You should not need an activation code per se. TMO just needs to activate the SIM.

Hey @gregd101‌, the fellas here have the right idea. Either calling in or heading to a retail store to activate your service would be the best bet. If you do need to call in, you can let the representative know you're wanting to activate a new prepaid plan and they can get this taken care of for you.
