    Samsung galaxy s3 Sim Card

    Hi, i recently bought a phone on Ebay, and in the description it says that it does not come with the sim card. Do i buy the Sim card at a local Cricket store? I'm really confused.

    They are talking about the 4g lte card, and you can't buy and program at a local store.

    So will there be a problem activating the phone without it?

    No, it's only for the 4g. Which unless you in there 4g coverage area its useless on the d2cri, on the sgs4 you can use third party 4g , the sgs3 doesn't run on the same third party frequency.

    There was someone here who is cricket dealer and can send a sim card out for a couple bucks. I pm'ed a guy but he never answered. I have a cricket S3 which I'm looking to sell, which has no sim card (i bought it broken and restored it). I checked cricket.com and it won't connect the phone without one, needs some number off it. Does anyone else here have sim card they don't need, or maybe there's another cricket dealer who has access to the new ones? For some reason nobody sells them on ebay

    That won't work how you get a new card is you will have to go into your cricket dealer and if you dont some dumb ass your in luck what he has to do is get one sent from there Samsung supplier i found that out when your phones gets replaced or damage even turned off you get a new Sim card crickets Sims arnt like T-Mobile and others that can be reused crickets are like a prepaid phone card once used ints no good

    Oh will that's the thing who ever bought it would have to get a new card anyway because the sims are linked and activated to the phone before you even receive it and they would have to get a new one anyway that's why you won't find a cricket Galaxy S3 or S4 for sale with a Sim because there is no point really the sim is no good they have to get a new one when they go get it activated

    I'm lost now... I tried to see if it can be activated online, and it asks me to enter "my phone's ICCID number", won't activate without. I called Cricket saying i don't have it and they told me it's on SIM card. Is that incorrect?..
