What’s the difference between a SIM Starter Pack, a Multi-Size SIM Card Pack, and an Embedded SIM Pack?
|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.|
|Multi-Size SIM Card Pack||A multi-size SIM (2FF/mini, 3FF/micro, and 4FF/nano) card is pre-registered to your Twilio account and ready to configure when the order is shipped. The minimum order quantity is 10.|
|Embedded SIM Pack||Used for IoT, Embedded SIMs are solderable SIMs, pre-registered to a particular Twilio account and ready to configure when the order is shipped.|
