    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

    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.
