 As far as I know,if they are the card in orange color or the card saying new AT&T in blue,they should still work.

 How long ago you brought it???

Re: Unactivated GoPhone SIM card expiration

think i bought these a couple of years ago on eBay. 
it's white & orange, with a small blue tab. says "rethink possible" on both sides, doesn't say "go phone" on it.
 using common sense, they shouldn't expire, if not activated. but the customer service supervisor "guess" that it should within 30 days, then he changed his guessing to "a few months?"

Oh!! Those SIM cards from ebaySmiley Indifferent 

I do use one of those card last July before I switch to a micro sim.

 

To be honest,most telco SIM cards will expire if you do not activated it within a time limit, from a few months to a few years.

 

I can name a few right from my mind, T MobXXX USA, expire date on the SIM card,

 

H2X USA,expire date on the card,

 

RogXXX from Canada,the one started with code UXXX are expire.

 

T MobXXX & OraXXX  in UK,

now they switched company to EE,they will not open new account under the old name sim cards.

 

Most pay as you go phone/data SIM package you can buy in Asia also has the expire date.

 

That's all I can remember now.......

I honesty don't know when or if unactivated SIM cards expire. I figure they're still worth activating, if not keeping them around a little while longer.
