A SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is a removable memory chip that stores information unique to the cell phone user.
Cell phones need a SIM card in order to connect to a phone network in order to make calls.

The position of the access cover varies by phone but it’s usually on the side of the device. Place the new SIM card into the SIM card tray and slide the tray into your phone.
There are 3 SIM card sizes: standard, micro and nano SIM. All phones released since 2014 (Apple iOS and Android) now support the nano SIM card. Older phones will require either the standard or micro SIM card but most MVNOs will send out a SIM card that can be adapted to all 3 sizes.
The cost of the Spectrum Mobile SIM card varies between carriers. Typically, the cost is $4-5 but some carriers offer free SIM cards with their prepaid cell phone plans.
You can purchase a Spectrum Mobile SIM card online or in a cell phone or electronics store.
Activating your new Spectrum Mobile SIM card is straight forward. When you receive your SIM card, contact the carrier and they will talk you through the activation process.

Last Wednesday & Thursday 14 & 15th, a sales associate name Jesse was "assisting" me with purchasing a phone plan. I gave him my credit card account number because it's required for auto payment withdrawals. There were multiple withdrawals from my account in the amount of $1.01, 7 transactions. I informed him and he said it was for verification reasons and that it shouldn't post to my account. He was having a lot of difficulties on his end that he had to reschedule for the next day. The next day, his system was running smoothly. I told him that I needed the sim card to be sent to where I am located, due to I'm traveling for work. He said he was having trouble changing the address and that I could intersect the delivery process by logging on the FedEx website and redirect it to me, I'm in Hawaii. He also told me that I wouldn't be charged until I activated my account. Later on that evening, I get a notification that my account was charged $45 and in addition several more charges of $1.01 charges from spectrum. I am livid at this point. I call billing and he said that Jesse lied to me. The sim card can not be redirect because it has to be sent directly to the address on file for security purposes. I told the guy in billing to cancel and he did. He told me that the $45 will be refunded and that the smalls fee's shouldn't post. I got a bill today from my credit card company with the fee's posted from spectrum and a percentage charged from my credit card company.
The reason why I am so angry right now is because I was lied to. How are you expected to keep customers if the sales associates will say and do anything just to get customers to sign up. You have to honor your customers! If Jesse would have told me "Oh, I'm sorry the sim card can only be sent to your home address." I would have said okay thank you, I will sign up for mobile when I get back home in December. Because I travel for work as I'm an essential healthcare worker. This is a headache and a disappointment I do not need.
Do not recommend.
It was very easy to sign up. When I called they did not tell me That I would be automatically charged for extra data used even though I am always at home and always connected to Wi-Fi. I should not have any additional charges for Internet use because of that. When I called to try to resolve the issue they had 0 interest in finding a solution. I just recently remembered they did not offer insurance for the device so I called to day to try and obtain that where they told me I should have got it when I signed up. But it wasn't offered so how could I get it. I was on the phone with the lady for about 15 maybe 20 minutes. She seemed to be in a very big hurry to get me off the phone. So not only was I lied to about the data My phone was consistently connected to my home Wi-Fi so there's no way that I went over the limit with my service to be charged an additional $70. And they don't like to solve problems they only say sorry we can't help you. They tell you immediately that a supervisor cannot help you. I didn't even ask for one.
