Are All T-Mobile Nano SIM Cards Created Equally?

As posted above, is there more than one type of T-Mobile nano SIM card? Here is why I ask. Recently I bought a Kyocera Brigadier.

-It phone works great with a Verizon nano SIM card.

-I unlocked it with Bebloater software to allow the APN settings to be changed.

-The phone works great with an AT&T SIM card.

-Today I stopped at a T-Mobile store, they removed a nano SIM card from an Apple iPhone 6 and the Kyocera Brigadier worked great.

-Later I stopped at a different T-Mobile store, activated a brand new nano SIM card and the Brigadier Kyocera turns off and on constantly with that SIM card.

So, I am just wondering why the Brigadier would work fine with SIM card that was already activated, but not with a new activation?

Not just water proof

All the reviews seem to miss the fact that this phone isn't just waterproof but you can use it while wet. No more wiping a drop of rain or snow off of the screen, you can use it this way.
I let my son take it in a creek this weekend and he was able to play Minecraft with the phone underwater.

The USB cover was annoying so I bought a $20 wireless charger.

...but what about the PTT button?

Great review, thank you. The many photos allow one to really get a feel for what the phone looks like & how its built.

Because the Brigadier looks a lot like the Kyocera Torque from Sprint, I'm wondering if the Verizon version has the same wimpy PTT button that the Torque has. Any info on that will be appreciated.

The old Motorola PTT phones had excellent PTT buttons, honed from many years of feedback from two-way radio customers over several decades, and also by Nextel users over the last ten years of iDEN's life. But Kyocera's PTT buttons on all of their Sprint phones are incredibly wimpy, so easy to push that one can not use the One Touch DC functionality because the wimpy Torque PTT button causes untold numbers of unintended PTT ch...

This doesn't have a PTT button, though I suppose you could set the programmable button to do it.
