Thread: UnlimitedSIM?!?

  1. #1
    Default UnlimitedSIM?!?
    So I've seen this site posted on a website getsim.net

    Supposedly it says that you get UNLIMITED EVERYTHING for $45, it expires every month, and you re-buy it if you want it again...

    Is this legit? Has anyone tried it yet?

    go on ebay, they sell these big time. they all work. you can even keep the same number every month but still need a new sim EVERy month for a tad extra. something like unlimited for 50 or 55 a month. heavy talkers could take advantage of this
    1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

    When I was looking it up on Ebay it said that if you want to keep the same number it's $45/month +$22 for the sim So you would have to spend $67/month

    That's better than any other plans out there, and there is no contract....

    It's a scam. Even though someone's paying $50-55 bucks every time to buy a SIM and service, T-Mobile's not seeing a dime of it. It's the same as using a postpaid SIM as much as possible but not paying the bill... essentially cell phone service theft and fraud.

    There's a sticky in the T-Mobile section of HoFo: [ame=http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1464288]READ THIS: Flex Pay and Unlimited Services[/ame]. It's specifically talking about this 'unlimited for $50' pile of... junk.

    OP:
    I hope you didn't give the seller any actual ID info, because they could put that info in to T-Mobile's billing systems to use you as a scapegoat (ruining your credit, get blacklisted from getting or retaining T-Mobile service, get sued for fraud, or such), or even sell your ID info to others... either way, you'd lose.

    If it was legit, then why doesn't T-Mobile offer it in-store or as a "request only," "retentions only" or "employees only" plan? It would kill Boost's new unlimited plans in so many ways... *common sense FTW*
    If it's too good to be true, then...

    There's several mentions that these accounts are eventually flagged and disconnected (at times even before the '30 day' period is up). Others posts such as this one: [ame=http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1338664]Is This Legit???[/ame] mention that these website and eBay dealers are using 'hijacked' rep/agent codes, and those reps/agents receive 'chargebacks' (reversal of credits/funds/charges gained from the activation) for the actions. That's theiving the rep or agent.

    Would you want somebody to take your paycheck because of someone's else actions (especially if that someone isn't anyone you know)? NO.

    It is a scam because these 'sellers' are doing this at a cost to someone at T-Mobile without their consent or knowledge.
