    Default Moto X sim card

    My wife has a iphone 4s and I have a Razr Maxx both on Verizon. I was looking at phones today and she noticed the Moto X. I was thinking about getting one used or off contract to let her try it out for a while. Can I take the sim out of hers and put it into the X? What would be the best way to move her stuff to the new phone?

    Moto X uses a nano SIM, smaller than what she has now.

    Verizon will give you a Sim card. Chris

    Either cut her existing sim down to nano size or get a new sim. Then get a nano to micro adapter so she can use the nano sim in her 4s.

    Wait. Her 4S SIM won't work in the Moto X.

    So I need to get an adapter first. Just incase she wants to go back. Then go to Verizon and get a new sim card. What's the best way to import her stuff over from a iphone?

    Lots of different ways to handle this depending on what you want to transfer and how you handle your pictures, music and other data. But here is an easy way to get going

    You should also have a look at this guide from the Google chairman Eric Schmidt

    No. You just need to get an LTE nano SIM from Verizon. The SIM currently in her 4S is only for GSM roaming.
