    Default Getting a replacement nexus 5 from Google can I just swap out Sim card?

    I'm on sprint and I got a Sim card for my first nexus device last week. I'm not getting a different device because of a dead pixel. Can I just take the Sim card out and put it in the new nexus and it will work or do I need to go to the sprint store and do something special ?

    You may still need to activate it through Sprint, but you may be able to do that online in the Chat session.

    I am pretty sure I have done that before. At worst, you spent several minutes to find out it can't be done. Let us know how it works out.
