SIM card at SFO

hey guys, apologies if there is already a thread on this but is there any information on where I can purchase a SIM card in SFO, while waiting to transit to my domestic flight?

I googled this but a lot of websites say that SFO does not have any shops selling SIM cards?

Thanks a bunch

There is a TripTel store in the international arrival area, near exit A. They specialize in phone rentals, however, their website suggests that they also sell SIM cards.

Otherwise, there are plenty of wireless carriers stores (AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM carriers) within a couple of miles of the airport, mostly along El Camino Real.

There are several Best Buy Express kiosks at SFO; I don't recall if they sell SIM cards but they do have no-contract mobile phones.

According to the locator on their web site, they're located near the following:

Terminal 2: Gates 51A and 59
Terminal 3: Gate 69
International Terminal A and G connectors
International Terminal Concourse G: Gates G94 and G100

FYI - Tmobile is the best for SIM cards for visitors. Their no nonesens way of purchasing is miles above the rest.
