    Thats stupid. They come with a phone number already assigned??
    They would be guessing at what area code you want (*if* you want a new number)

    How would you do a number port via the website, like you can do now? If the sim already has a phone number attached......
    Maybe its a way to phase out the Walmart $30/month 5GB data, 100min voice plan - without the backlash of just making it go away on the website.

    Tmobile is just losing it ,with their nutty CEO

    This is not a good move on T-Mobile's part - and it does sound like they're just adding a hurdle to that $30/5GB plan. I don't think I'll have much choice but to leave T-Mobile if that plan goes away. :(

    Further reading (since I hate that this is apparently only reported by a single news source):


    In the meantime, purchasing a SIM from a third party like Amazon might be a better move.

    @MrLaserman thanks for making us aware!

    I'd buy from Walmart. While it is $30, it also comes with a $30 credit.
