    Default Does The Vivid need a different SIM for LTE?

    Hi, I just bought my daughter a new Vivid off Ebay, is there a different SIM for LTE service or can she use her Sim from her Focus S ? Thanks.

    Its a micro sim so yes you will need a new similar but lte is regional based if there's no Ltd in your area simply no signal

    Thanks, I haven't received the phone yet, but yes she lives in an LTE area, and I didn't realize that the Vivid used a micro Sim, I thought it was a standard size .

    The HTC Vivid uses the standard GSM SIM. It does not use a microSIM. For LTE, I have an old SIM that I used for 3G, but I'm still able to get 4G, HSPA, HSPA+, and LTE. The age of the SIM has nothing to do with service. The size of the SIM matters.

    Just to use the phone, but be it microSIM or SIM, even if the card says 3G, you can get 4G LTE. I am proof of that.

    If you got a new sim with the phone you don't need a new one for LTE service. However if you kept your old one take a look at the SIM serial number (ICCID) and if it has a 25 about halfway through you should be set. If not you may want to request a replacement from AT&T... they are free in corporate stores.
