    Not easy to activate

    I got this pay as you go sim to be used for a couple of days as backup thinking that this would be a quick and easy alternative... but no... it was a complete bad experience... H2O is not accepting credit cards for new line's activation being the only option to use one air time pin which is really hard to get cause it's out of stock everywhere... not even available at Best Buy. After spend 2 days the only way I found to get the air pin was by using an online website. With air pin on hands I was able to activate the new line by phone call cause website was failing all the time with different errors. About service, after initial issues, service works ok, but I need to mention that it is very expensive, I only recommended pay as you go for minimal usage or emergencies, otherwise go for a monthly plan.

    I bought this as a replacement for my phone line since I figured I would spend much less paying per minute than any contract. The process was pretty simple. I bought the card and inserted it into my iPhone. I even used the free Wi-Fi at the store to set an H2O account and started with a $10 plan. After the purchase, the phone worked instantly! Every time I use it, it notifies me exactly how much was spent on either the call or text while also displaying how much funds I have left. Recharging is also simple by just logging into my H2O account and paying for minutes again.

    H2O - 3-in-1 Universal SIM Card - Yellow

    Recently upgraded from a standard pay as you go cell phone to a smart phone, switching over was easy. H2O even unlocked my new smart phone pay as go service from At&t service over to H2O automatically, had to pay a little more 5 cents to 50 cent a minute for talk & text but that was okay because of the smart phone upgrade. Got this micro, nano and standard SIM card at Best Buy. Very satisfied and would highly recommend this product to anyone who does not want to be bound to a contract and wants to save their money on cell phone usage.

    Works as it should

    The SIM card works just as it should. The only issue I had was with H20 Wireless itself. I tried to transfer my cell phone number from a different carrier. Long story short I ended up having to buy a new SIM card due to TERRIBLE HORRIBLE customer service from H20 wireless. Unfortunately AT&T and Verizon are the only decent carriers in my area and H20 wireless is the cheapest out of the two low cost providers on the ATT network. So I'm stuck with them.

    only pro going for H2O is you get free international calling to selected countries. call quality is not so good. international call quality is horrible. but it gets job done. it basically uses ATT celluar network for signal so if your area has good att coverage and in need of international calling in H2O call list then H2O 30$ a month is for you

    I have one of these to set up phones that don't have SIM cards. I got friends who come over all the time around the globe and want to purchase an iPhone, so we usually buy these cards to set the phone up, so they can use while they're in the US. Straight forward and easy to purchase minutes/data. I believe the cheapest price is $10.00 for data.

    Easy Activation

    I bought this SIM card from Bestbuy and activated it with h2o wireless, the process was easy. Though, I was not aware that I need to first perform number transfer process and activated a SIM card. Once activated, you can't transfer number and have to buy a new SIM card if you love your number. In my case, I was okay to get new number. So keep that in mind.

    H2O, provides great service coverage, I have their service activated on a spare cell phone. That my wife carries with her to ensure she has coverage in the event of an emergency. You can add $10 or $20 worth of minutes and the do not expire for 90 days. Small price to pay for peace of mind.

    I got this h2o wireless sim card so I could experiment with a older iphone on wifi. It was great to be able to go pick it up at a Best Buy. You need a sim card even unactivated to start using a iphone. Plus I plan to activate it later on a phone, we love their pay as you go plan.

    Not recommended for travellers to US. Webste does no support international credit card for purhcase of airtime. Have to get one-time airtime card in order to top up. Customer Service hotline puts you on perpetual hold.

    Ready to Use nano-SIMM

    Ordered online, followed by In-Store pickup. All went smoothly and efficiently. The SIMM (H2O) was for a new unlocked phone. Install and transfer of existing number was a breeze. Everything operates as expected

    This is the cheapest service with no monthly commitment. For people who just need a backup phone when they go for walks and stuff, this is great. I get this everytime for my in laws who visit us from outside the country. This service piggy backs on the AT&T networks and has great coverage.

    This is a good company that uses AT&T network. They don't give you he gizmo's like visual voice, MMS for iPhone and some other At&t features. It has a better network same as AT&T but definitely better 4G LTE for almost less than half with the regular AT&T.

    Bought this to put in an older unlock phone for my middle school son for occasional use. No issue. Put the sim in, set up and activate account, add $ and good to go. Wish it comes with some dollars to try out the service in case it doesn't work out.

    There were some initial problems with getting this card to work with an older phone for all of voice, text, and data. But once the card was set, it works like a charm. H2O can be a good choice of provider for those who don't have strong T-Mobile signal.

    When i broke the screen on my phone and needed a really quick fix, i bought this product to be able to use my sim card in an older phone. This product is not a permanent solution, but it worked well to hold me over til my phone was replaced

    I purchased this SIM card from stores. I bought mine for $0.99 each. Works with my iPhone 5S. I have the $30 plan with unlimited talk, text, and 500 mb/month data. I got onto the auto-pay option and received the 10% discount ($27 per month).

    This prepaid sim is great value for those that dont talk much or are on wifi most of their day. The monthly rates are decently priced. The cost of the sim is more than what i would have liked to pay for it but it all works out in the end.

    I have used H2O wireless for years. I am a low volume user and pay 5 cents per minute to talk and 5 cents per text on the ATT network. Great service, easy to set up. You can save a bundle with this service.
