    So if I want to use the SIM card from my contract HTC One M8 for multiple phones to keep the same number. Would it be possible to do so without having to deal with Verizon? Also, as soon as I sign into Google, I'd have all my contacts right?

    Sure, but each phone would have to have an account. Verizon is CDMA, not GSM. The SIM card is for data, not for network connection. You'd have to change your account's current ESN (which is on the box the phone comes in and on a label under the battery on phones that have removable batteries. (And a dial code, which is different for different manufacturers.)

    Verizon used to have someplace on the website to do the change (after you log in). If they don't still do that, you'd have to call customer service every time you wanted to swap phones.

    yes, you can swap them, as long as both phones use the same type of sim. just put the sim in whichever phone you want to use and go on about your business, when you're ready to switch back, just go for it. i've done it several times. no problems.

    Good to know I can just switch SIMs, because I can't find the ESN thing on Verizon's website.

    You can use the same SAM bit you may need a SIM adapter if the SIMs aren't the same size.
