When you receive the SIM, could you report whether it has an expiration date? I want one for emergency situations for Tello’s unlimited talk plan. Don’t want to buy one and then have it expire on me. Happened to me with a Tracfone Tmobile SIM - and that one was just a buck as opposed to 5 bucks for Tello.

Whats confusing to me is that it seems if you are a new customer you can order the sim and everything is fine. But if your an existing customer (as I am) they want you to "wait" untill they send you an email. Maybe this is because for existing customers they intend on not charging 5 bucks for shipping. Otherwise it looks like new customers can get set up before existing ones. Or maybe it has to do with auto-porting your number but at any rate I ordered one and it was 5 bucks.
I wonder why they do that, given that it keeps customers like me away. Also leads to more electronic waste, no matter how tiny a SIM card is.
