I just purchased 2 apple 12 phones and put my previous sim card from apple xr in them, they are working fine but now TMobile sent me a text to upgrade sim card. I’m not opposed to upgrading the sim card but not quite sure why I should have to pay an activation charge just to upgrade the sim card…….what is being activated?

Hello fuphyJ,

It sounds like you may have some older SIM cards and we’re wanting to get you access to our newer 5g technology.  You shouldn’t need to pay for a new sim as your phone is eSIM capable.  Here’s a good link that will help you get setup and running quicker than before
