    I currently have a Droid Bionic. (Verizon)
    I was wondering if i could just simply pull out the SIM card out of the Bionic and put in into
    other Smartphones.
    I've heard that it works with Rezound and TB what else? (Such as Galaxy Nexus)
    If i buy a used device will it work if i put my SIM card into it?( Does it need to be ESN clean or Unlocked?)

    Thank you!

    I believe the sim card contains your info and phone number along with some other stuff. You can pop it out and stick it in another phone. It won't fit in a RAZR because the one in the bionic is larger. When they replaced my bionic with the razr they had to send a new sim card if they were the same size I could have used the sim card that was in my bionic.

    I've also heard if you put the sim in a 3g phone it will work but if you then put it back into a 4g it wont work in 4g anymore or something like that? It was something I read somewhere on the net so its gotta be true lol.

    I just spoke to verizon and found that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Droid turbo both share the same sim card. Easy as back up your info power off devices remove and swap then power back on.
