Hello dudes,

I don't know if I need to get a new SIM card to activate my iPhone by this method. If I need to get a new one from any AT&T store, I need to pay for that?. Please, if someone can say me, step by step is it possible, how can I get this plan, would be great. thanks for be there....

If you have already activated your phone then you will need a new sim. If you have not activated your sim that came with the phone you will be ok. To get a sim you need to go to the ATT store. I think they will make you pay and I think it's around $35 or so. If you haven't ever activated your iPhone just sync it to iTunes and put in all 9's for the ssn and the go phone plan will appear when it fails the credit check.

Just put your address or some place that you can get mail in case they have to send you anything. You need a valid credit or debit card so make sure the address matches the address where your statements come...billing address.

I signed up for GoPhone last week and I got the SIM card for free at the store. Even on the site it says that the plan activation is free, so they shouldn't charge you.

Hey htech or anyone who can help me....

....I did every step during the activation to get the fails credit check with the famous 9's for the ssn and right now appear a screen what say :

Your activation requires additional time to complete and you will receive an email bla, bla, bla...

What can I do now?. I was thinking that the screen to activate by gophone was the next one, but...

If someone can help me, great!. Thanks for all....

I've heard of some people getting that message. An email will probably arrive asking you to come into a store and activate. If you do go in, be prepared to get the hard sell. Just be firm and say you're credit sucks and you'd better just GoPhone it. ;)

Interesting. Did you ever get an email? I didn't have a problem it just worked when I finished out the wizard. I wonder if they randomly do some spot checking now.
