I just received it too. Don't understand why we have to pay $15 for the new sim though. It does not sound like much of an upgrade to me.

When you log into your web page, there is a section called identify verification that wants your passport number, social security number, and other stuff. Am I the only one who is uncomfortable with this?

The funny thing: in my email this sentence says "Your YackieMobile SIM will be shipped to you at no charge."

So are there different kind of customers for them or did they change the text of the emails inbetween?

They dont check the data. I clicked on drivers license and typed some fancy number and it was accepted...

Now would be a good time for them to roll out that SIM they talked about last year with the cheaper North American roaming profile.

This is a RIP-OFF!

Why would we want to pay Yackie another $15 to have a SIM card that none of us requested!?!

If they are changing their systems or whatever and they want us to continue using their service then they need to send this replacement SIM card out for FREE!

If not then they need to refund people their remaining balance and they can go elsewhere...

Stu, that has been showing up for the last few months. I just ignore it and click on the "my account" link.

I received the same e mail from them...

I emailed them back saying I am aware some have received the e mail but have been told they will be getting a new sim card at no charge....

I therefore requested one be sent to me without charge.

I assume everybody else here will be doing the same with a subtle (or not so subtle) suggestion that if they do not furnish a sim card for free to everybody, they will receive a great deal of bad publicity on this forum.

Not a very good service to charge customers and tell them the service will be shut down in 1 month and force them to pay 15$ for an upgrade.

What happens if you don't upgrade and still have money on your account, a refund ?
If you still have money in your account the could also charge your account for these 15$.

I still remember United Mobiles offer for a free +44 sim when you had a +423 sim. No charge just an extra number for free.
