If you're in the market to buy a MetroPCS SIM card, you have a few options at your disposal. Of course, the easiest method is to just stop by a MetroPCS store and pick one up, but if that's not in your gameplay, here are some other options for you.

Where Can I Buy a MetroPCS SIM

MetroPCS Store

Most obviously, you can buy MetroPCS SIM cards right in any MetroPCS store. This is your quickest and safest bet (providing you have a store close by). They offer the MetroPCS Universal SIM Card Kit for $10 that includes a Nano SIM card, a Micro SIM card adapter, and a Standard SIM card adapter.

If you don't feel like leaving the house and can spare a few days to wait for your MetroPCS SIM, you can pick one up online and have it shipped to you. The caveat here is that the stock seems to run out quickly, so it's really hit or miss as to whether you'll actually be able to order one or not.


While the other options are easier (in most cases) and definitely safer, you can always buy a MetroPCS SIM card on eBay (opens in new tab) as well — if that's the route you want to take. We can't 100% vouch for the validity of all of the offerings there, but you can probably find what you're looking for with a bit of research. Just make sure you check the full description and seller feedback before you purchase anything.

Caveat Emptor!

You can find MetroPCS SIM cards elsewhere too, but always be conscious of where you're buying from and who you're buying from. Some retailers that may look like they have legitimate SIM cards aren't on the up-and-up. So always do your researched before you click the buy button!
