Can't register microSIM card

I bought a microSIM card a few months ago to use for a new phone. I decided not to use the new phone and continued with my old SIM card and phone (but kept the new SIM card). Now I'm using a new phone and wanted to use the microSIM card but I can't seem to register it through the self-serve site. Is the microSIM card useless now?

No, as long as the SIM card was never activated then it should be fine until it's used. Make sure its the correct kind (postpaid or prepaid).
I had activated it when I was trying to use the new phone but switched back to my previous SIM and phone. So is the microSIM not working because I had it activated and had just used it for a day before switching back to my previous set up?

Ah, yes. That is the problem. You can only reuse an old SIM card every 90 days. If it's been inactive for more than 90 days then you'll need to buy a new one.
Ah okay! Thanks for the help!
