Replacing the SIM card in an iPhone 8

I dropped my iPhone 8 and cracked the face. I purchased a refurbished iPhone 8 on ebay.  It didn't come with a SIM card and the one in my old iPhone 8 won't work...HELP!!    What do I need to do???

HI there MusicMan_JP. So sorry to hear about your phone. The old sim card will not work on another phone. Not all unlocked phones are compatible with Boost mobile. Please visit www.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone/ and enter your Device ID to check if your phone is compatible with Boost mobile. If so, it will allow you to purchase a compatible sim card for it.-

Hey there @MusicMan_JP Are you switching from another carrier? Yes, you can purchase the SIM Kit as long as the device is compatible with our service.

No, I'm not switching. I was a Virgin Mobile customer, who was automatically switched to Boost when they acquired Virgin.  Idropped my iphone * and cracked it.  I bought a refurbished Boost Mobile iPhone 8 on ebay, but it didn't come with a SIM card.
