No they sent me a sim that did not work with my Galaxy S9+ SM-G965U. They are currently going to send me a pre activated sim for my phone according to customer support. I'm just waiting for that. I will keep you all updated. I did not choose to port my old number.

tim661taft, if you still have the first SIM FreeMii sent, could you look at the ICCID (SIM card #), and report the first 6 digits here? (The first 6 digits should provide some information about the network provider, but nothing about the individual SIM card identity.) And perhaps if there is any logo or name on the SIM itself other than FreeMii?
I'm curious about it being the 'wrong SIM' for your s9+. As a general rule, I didn't think Verizon discriminated at all for the SIM card type used in different phones. The first digits would show if FreeMi simply sent you a SIM for the wrong network.
The "1X or 1xRTT" that tim661taft mentioned showed up on the status bar of his phone would seem to indicate it was a Verizon Sim, but it must have been defective in some way or was somehow borked in the activation process.

Nope, still not activated. Was told the port was tricky and required hand holding and was told it should go through last weekend, but hasn't yet. Last time I contacted customer service I was told that they had a lot of activations so things were taking longer.
Latest from CS "I understand that you would like to be able to use your SIM card, and I apologize for the delay. We've been working with the network provider on the activation. If you prefer, you can request a refund on your membership fee."
My current provider is AT&T prepaid. They aren't exactly a fringe provider.
Looks as if FreeMii is having serious trouble with Verizon activations, which may explain why most people were getting AT&T sims. Maybe FreeMii's relationship with Verizon is a money losing one, unlike, perhaps, its relationship with AT&T. Yet FreeMii did say activation of Verizon sims was in beta, which means there might be problems. At least FreeMii offered a refund without being asked. I'm still wondering what FreeMii's secret sauce is.
The SIM they first sent me is a verizon SIM ICCID 8914 8000 . I have a feeling that SIM is not compatible with my phone cause it shows 1x next to the signal bars. However for shits n giggles I inserted an old un activated verizon SIM into my phone and it showed 4g LTE. SO I have high hopes that the next verizon SIM they are sending me will work.
