Test SIM card

I’m trying to bring my mother into the modern age but she lives in a place with terrible signal and I’m trying to get SIMs from the various networks to test out before committing to anything, some other providers offer SIMs that can be activated afterwards but I can’t see any option for that here, is this something ID Mobile offers?

Hey @GeorgeFish, our SIMs are activated the moment they leave the warehouse, so what you’re asking isn’t possible unfortunately. 

You can use our coverage checker here to get an idea, but I appreciate the actual results may differ.

If you cancel within the first 30 days, you’ll just pay for the days the SIM was connected rather than the whole month, so if you buy the cheapest SIM plan and test it on the first day and then cancel, you won’t be paying much at all. You can change the plan to a higher one after that if you need to.

Hope this helps!


Thank you,
