    I bought a Galaxy S4 knockoff from China. The brand name is M-Horse S4 mini. Before I bought it, I asked the seller if it would work on the AT&T network. My service provider, PureTalk, uses the AT&T network.

    He said it would. So now I have the phone, and PureTalk is asking what kind of phone it is. I didn't know how to answer the question (S4 knockoff, or M-Horse. They asked me if the SIM was standard size or mini. I said Standard, turns out (I think), it's a mini.

    They sent a Standard size card, which doesn't work.

    My question is, does anybody know exactly what SIM card will work in this phone (very nice phone, by the way)? Do SIM cards have ID numbers?

    The seller says its a GSM 2G, which will not work on 3G or 4G networks. I'm hoping AT&T will accept this 2G phone. The seller gave me a frequency for the SIM:
    850/900/1800/1900 MHZ.

    That's all the info I have. Can anyone tell me what SIM card to get from PureTalk?

    Re: Galaxy S4 knockoff on PureTalk

    I found some info saying that the phone is a dual sim phone, meaning you can use two numbers on it, but nothing about what size it takes. I'm going to guess it's mini, if not that then micro. The real galaxy s4 is micro.

    The data speed the phone operates on should have nothing to do with whether they activate it or not. As long as the phone is unlocked, which i'm sure it is, it should work. SIM cards do have ID's - that how it is paired with your account.
