Next, you need to Google "XYZ APN settings for iPhone", replacing XYZ with the name of your carrier. These settings must be placed in Settings, under general, cellular, and found in the Cellular Data section.
If you have the T-Mobile SIM card we gave you, call T-Mobile and explain that you want to start service using that SIM card. If you already have a T-Mobile SIM card, you still need to call T-Mobile but tell them you lost your old SIM card and you want to replace it with the one you received from us. SIMPLE Mobile users can just activate the SIM card from SIMPLEMOBILE.com or by calling SIMPLE Mobile.
