    Does anyone know if the SIM that comes in the box with the AT&T Lumia 950 is a secure one? I had swapped out my micro SIM in my Lumia 920 for a secure one when SoftCard was released for it and I wanted to setup my Lumia 950 with a secure SIM so that it would be ready incase Microsoft releases their mobile payment option. Or is it possible that it may work with the SIM that comes with the phone.

    I'd guess that it is going to vary from store to store. I think most are only using secure sims at this point, but who knows if they grabbed an old one. If it has a grey corner you should be good to go.

    The sales rep at the store did not get a card for it. The card was already in the box and the box was sealed when they got the phone box out of storage and handed me the box so I assume the SIM card was placed in the box when it phone was boxed at the factory. The card that was in the box has a blue corner to the right of the orange strip on the bottom with the AT&T globe logo.

    Do they have some kind of mark on the card to identify a secure SIM? You would think that would have "secure" or a pad lock icon on the card or something to identify secure ones.

    OK, I guess mine is not secure then because the section of the card that is grey with the purple outline in the phone from ebay is solid blue on mine. Do you know if the one you have that is grey with a purple outline was already in the box or did someone at the store get one from their supply of cards?

    color could just be a color reproduction issue with the camera used. the gray spot i believe is the major factor.

    All sims are in box, but SOMETIMES at the store a rep will open the box and pull the sim on they way back to the showroom. I strongly doubt any stores still have non-secure sims.

    Mine looks like this one with just the blue section to the left of the ICCID barcode and not the grey with purple outline.

    My SIM was also in the box because I asked for it not to be opened until I was ready to set it up so the AT&T sales rep didn't even break the seal on the box and when I walked out the store the box was still sealed.

    It's been a few years since I worked for AT&T, but in my experience, the stores don't generally carry more than one SIM technology more than a few weeks after the newer technology launches, such as when we launched 3G, HSPA+, and LTE networks. At least corporate stores were required to ship back inventory of old SIM cards. For as long as I've had my current secure SIM, I doubt you would find any stores with the older ones still in stock.
