|SIM Starter Pack||A SIM Starter Pack contains three multi-size SIM cards (2FF/mini, 3FF/micro, and 4FF/nano) per pack. SIMs in a SIM Starter Pack are not pre-registered to a particular Twilio account and come with registration instructions so that they can be easily shared with other developers on your team.|
