Is knowroaming still a thing? Still around?

I haven't used my sim in over a year...I'm guessing it's dead and I'll need a new one? :(

Hey folks, right now in the US and came across US mobile, they can even ship the sim free of charge to your address( there will be a code pop up on their site), but I love that you can customize a plan to your liking. Like all unlimited is$45, also they send you 2 Sims, one TMobile network and the other Verizon version.

Give it a try if you're not sure.

Btw my local Walgreens had no Tmob Sims left on my last trip. They had a bunch of at&t and mvnos.

I've been using Knowroaming. It's eSim only now. 5Gigs for 30days of US data for $15 USD is what I've been buying.

Good to know they're still around even if I ended up having to get a new sim card.
They do show the sim card is still selectable online.

OP here bumping the thread, saw Text now has a new sim kit .99 cents that includes free text/call from the App.
You don't need a data plan as it has limited data to connect to their servers.

TextNow
.com has TextNow SIM Card Activation Kit for Free Nationwide Talk & Text w/ Ads for $0.99. Shipping is free.

Saw this on slickdeals thought it may help anyone planning to travel soon to the US.

Depends on the location. Parts of Florida near Orlando were horrible. Most major cities were pretty good. Used it in Buffalo, Long Island, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Orlando and Sarasota. Most places it was fine. We drove through upper New York State and it seemed ok as well.
