Really good questions and I appreciate you posting.
You can get a SIM card, but in order to be able to use it, you'll need to activate it on one of our plans. Going to the store when you actually get here might be the best option so you can get help face to face. You'll want to reach out to the store you're looking to buy the service from if you're looking to make the trip and not buy over the phone. I've heard of some instances where credit card purchase is the only option. The SIM card won't be activated until it's set up on the account so you can insert the SIM into the phone without the service starting automatically. The Tourist Plan Tourist Plan has unlimited data with 2 GB of 4G LTE data. We don't have an option to increase that 4G LTE limit so we'd encourage using Wi-Fi in you need faster speeds when you're not in transit.
Thanks Mike for your reply. Is it possible to activate it, without going to the store? (if i follow the instructions clearly that is) Or must need to activate via phone/in person? https://prepaid.t-mobile.com/prepaid/plans/plan-details?familyId=tourist-plan I am only in each city for a few days and would like to maximise my time there instead of going to find a store... :D Thanks again for your help.

I totally understand maximizing your time. I'm seeing there is an online cart option when going through the plan purchase. You'll need to set up an account and fill out all the information you see. Going to the store is another option if you need more help, but I'm sure our folks there can get you set up as quickly as possible.
