Hi Deepjot,

I don't believe there is a minimum age for a prepaid SIM card, you should be able to go and just buy one and activate it

The age restriction on cell services is due to the fact that you are signing a term.
With pre-paid, there is no such paperwork, so you can set up an account at any age.
I got my first prepaid when I was 15!
