    Default SIM cards

    Are the SIM cards on the Bionic and the Galaxy Nexus interchangeable?

    The GNex is a micro SIM card, I believe the Bionic is a standard size. Others have cut a standard size SIM card to fit in a micro slot, or you can try using an adapter.

    I bought an Adapter off eBay for like $1.17 including shipping so I can swap between my Galaxy Nexus and ThunderBolt. Why would I want to use my ThunderBolt? I don't know. I guess it's good knowing I have a backup phone if I break my Galaxy Nexus and I don't have to go to Verizon to get a new SIM.

    I just traced my microSIM card on my ThunderBolt's old SIM card, and just cut the ThunderBolt SIM to act as an adapter for my microSIM, works just fine

    Wow, that is ingenious, brave but ingenious.

    So, for a 4G device on Verizon, do you just move the SIM to a new device to change to it, or do you still have to use the web interface to switch the device like we did for 3G devices?

    I haven't tried it but I think you can just swap SIMs. On their website, if you activate a 4G phone, you will then be prompted to enter the SIM card number. But in theory, you should be able to swap. I'm picking up a Maxx today, so I'll swap my Nexus SIM with that and see what happens.

    Here's a link from the CrackBerry site for those asking about putting a micro SIM card in a standard SIM slot:

    You can switch the SIM card between any Verizon 4G device and service transfers, just like it does on GSM phones/networks.
