Default 2018 New Piranha Mobile Sim Card 2018 thread - 02-07-2018, 00:49

Seems like a good time to start a new thread.
1 July 2018.
Anyone got the new SIM card yet?
Probably best to wait until you get one to respond.
A lot of no messages will be unsettling.

Nothing yet and think it may be weeks or months until we get new SIM cards.

Either they're dead, or they're completely failing to keeping their customers informed as to what's going on at a crucial time.

Piranha is probably a small outfit with a handful of employees at the most. The lack of communication from them, while not overly surprising, just makes one think they are pretty much dead!

The Piranha representative reads this forum. And the lack of response, even in this forum, makes one suspicious.

According to their published accounts online in the UK they lost money in 2017 and 2016 . . . perhaps not a good business model. Still no new sim card arrived here.

The Piranha website won't let potential new customers buy a sim card either...you just get a redirect to a page with no products.

I only give Piranha a slim chance of actually mailing out new sim cards to existing customers and resuming operations given the challenges of switching sim platforms and their financial issues.

Since the two Piranha sim cards in our family had little left on them, it's not much of a loss if they close up shop.

Have other options including just got a Mint Mobile sim card that works in the US on T-Mobile and can roam outside the US.
